Creative alternatives to the traditional wedding cake
In this day and age, your wedding cake can be as extravagant, unusual and as wacky as you and your partner see fit. Even better – it doesn’t have to be a cake at all. After all, let’s face it – fruitcake is dated and ever so slightly overrated. Maybe you’ve always been one to choose the cheese board over the dessert, or maybe you’re simply looking for a creative alternative to the traditional wedding cake? Either way, you’ve come to the right place. These original wedding cake alternatives will certainly tickle your taste buds and are guaranteed to add a fun and creative twist to your wedding day.
1: This wedding cheese ‘cake’ is perfect for those who are missing their sweet tooth. Also, unlike a traditional wedding cake it’s super easy to make at home. Just buy your favourite cheeses (okay, all the cheeses) and create your own masterpiece that your fellow cheese-lovers will thank you for.
3: This easy-sharing and elegant wedding cake alternative is the equivalent of a tiered wedding cake – minus the cost. Make each cupcake an elaborate work of art, and mix it up with different flavours to cater to your guests’ personal preferences. Take a look here for some inspiration.
4: This Krispy Kreme mountain is the answer to all doughnut-lovers’ prayers. Simply pick your favourite doughnuts and they’ll do the rest. We know it’s not the healthiest of choices but it’s your big day, so go on - have your cake and eat it. Check out the options on their website.
7: Do you and your partner share an undying love for pizza? Make your favourite takeaway part of your wedding for a truly unique and memorable wedding cake alternative. You may think pizza can’t look pretty, but once you’ve wrapped a ribbon around it, stuck a cake topper on top and personalised it with all your guests’ favourite toppings, you’ll find that no-one will really mind.
