Go savory with your “wedding cake” and create a cheese creation that everyone can enjoy. There are a variety of reasons why someone may want to go this route and that’s perfectly okay! Just be sure to jazz it up a bit and use seasonal flavors!
A parfait for everyone at the party could be exactly what you’d like as well. This is a bit more of a modern route to take and you can include a variety of fabulous flavors as well. Chocolate, vanilla, fruit-inspired, or even some with some pumpkin spice could be sprinkled throughout the assortment.
There are so many different ways you could present these brownies and we’re a special fan of these powdered, tiered beauties. You don’t have to use the extra sugar on top but it sure adds a bout of festivity, don’t you think?
Are you having a morning or brunch time wedding? If so, pay homage to your love of homemade crepes by creating a wedding cake around that delicious bite. Your layers could be filled with vanilla or chocolate creme.
We all have a churro fanatic in our lives, don’t we? Well, if you’re that person, you can situate your wedding day around these crunchy, cinnamon sweet bites. You could even serve some chocolate or caramel sauce on the side for dipping.
Easily added to the dessert bar or as a special wedding “cake” everyone will remember for years to come, this Oreo design is so much fun! Add some accents that fit the themes and maybe even some extra icing on top of the homemade goodies.
Homemade cannolis or similar pastries could create a scene at the party as well. We are loving the layers of florals that highlight this design as well, creating quite the right amount of inspiration for your own big day.
Maybe you’re a fan of these Krispie treats. Or maybe you love how nostalgic they make you. Or maybe it’s a snack that you shared throughout your college years. Whatever the reason for your love of this marshmallow and cereal duo, you can turn it into something delicious for the party.
Sticky, sweet, and French, this croquembouche cake is a tradition overseas and can easily replace your wedding cake in wild and delicious ways. Decorate it with fresh florals or other unique bits and things.
Another idea for our donut lovers out there… this donut hole cake is such a cutie. You can stack them or place them on a stick and really create a magical design. Mix up the look as well with sprinkles, cream, chocolate, and classic flavors.
If you prepare really well, you can create an ice cream cake. And then decorate it as beautifully as you see here. This is especially perfect for spring or summertime weddings that need the bit of extra “cool” down.
Of course, you can always nix the cake and go with cupcakes instead. We started seeing these trends years ago when “alternatives” to the classic wedding cake even became a thought and the idea is still thriving!
