The Top 7 Wedding Cake Alternatives

The holiday season always has us thinking about sweets. And with so many desserts to choose from, brides shouldn’t have to limit themselves to cake for their wedding.

Nontraditional wedding cakes are the perfect way to show off your personality and creativity. These days, anything goes! If you have a favorite dessert that you want to incorporate into your wedding, make it your wedding cake.

Here are a few of our favorite options for your nontraditional wedding cake:

1. Cupcakes


One of the most popular new wedding cake trends, cupcakes give your guests a perfectly portioned treat. You could even do multiple flavors and let the guests choose their favorite! Stack them up on a cupcake tower for that extra “wow” factor.

2. Cake pops


Sometimes a bite of cake is all you need! You can frost and decorate cake pops in a number of creative ways. Whether you like sprinkles, drizzled chocolate or just plain, cake pops are a great way to show off your personality.

3. Cookies


Are you and your fiance cookie monsters? Then cookies might be a perfect option for you! Go for a classic like chocolate chip or peanut butter or try something out-of-the-box! You could even enlist the help of your bridal party and family to help bake the batches yourself and save money.

4. Pie


Another new trend in place of wedding cakes is pie. This is a great choice especially for brides looking to throw a fall wedding. Get in the spirit of the season with pumpkin pie or apple pie. You could even make little hand pies to give everyone their own personal treats.

5. Pancakes


Are you more of a breakfast person than a dessert person? Then, go for a pancake stack for your wedding cake! Get fancy with chocolate chips or blueberries and stack them up high to make a grand pancake tower. Don’t forget about the maple syrup!

6. Donuts


Make your wedding fun and casual with a donut cake! Order them from your favorite bakery and include an assortment of flavors to give your guests plenty of choices. Or, you could even order a giant donut and give everyone a slice.

7. Macaroons


If you’re looking to make your wedding a more elegant affair, macaroons are a lovely dessert option. Stack them up on beautiful trays or a giant tower. Your guests are sure to love indulging in the sweet treat!
