It’s All About Dessert - Alternatives to Wedding Cake

Raise your hand if you love dessert (...both of my hands are raised)!
While a traditional tiered wedding cake is classic, many couples are moving away from the idea of cutting the cake in front of all their guests, or even having a cake at all! Here are some alternatives to a wedding cake that will satisfy your sweet tooth.


Cake Variety
If you are really set on having a wedding cake, that doesn’t mean you have to only have one! Switch it up with lots of different flavors so everyone can choose their favorite.

Mini Desserts
Tiny desserts are awesome (cause then you can have more than one!)!

Macaron
This continues to be a very popular wedding dessert option. Not only do they taste delicious, but macarons can be decorated in a variety of ways to match your wedding colors or even painted to personalize them!

Donuts or Pastries
Donuts are a yummy dessert that can be displayed in lots of fun ways. We’ve seen them hanging from peg boards, being rolled around on hanging carts, or just displayed in those classic pink bakery boxes. I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to grab a hot, fresh pastry from a beignet tree?!

Candy
Candy bars are great because they allow your guests to enjoy a treat at the event, but also take something home. Take your candy bar to the next level by also including some baked goods like brownies or lemon bars or cookies. Make sure you have customized bags or boxes for your guests to fill with their favorite treats!
