Fabulous Friday: 8 Alternative Wedding "Cakes"

While wedding cakes are a timeless feature, personalizing your wedding with a cake alternative is an opportunity to incorporate details into your big day that reflect you and your husband-to-be. If you worked together at a donut shop, why not have a donut cake? If you stayed late at an ice-cream shop on your first date until they closed, opt for an ice cream cart. If you bonded over not loving desserts, what about having a “cheese” cake? 

Just like picking your dress, décor, and writing your vows, picking your wedding “cake” is an opportunity to give tradition a creative twist and have your personality come through. Here are 8 wedding cake alternatives we love to get your stomach grumbling! 

1. Macaroons

They're small and dainty, and come in endless flavors, what's not to love?

2. Cookies

Imagine a cookie cake tower, with each tier being a different flavor of your favorite cookies: oatmeal, chocolate chip, red velvet, lemon, double chocolate...

3. Cupcakes

They're like a miniature cake, only a lot easier to pass around.

4. Ice-cream 

If you prefer the creaminess of ice-cream over the iciness of a pop, but want something equally as fresh on a hot day!

5. Ice Pops

Also the perfect refresher for a summer wedding! 

6. Donuts

Fried, filled, frosted, or unfrosted, you will drive your guests glazy!

7. Waffle, Crepe, or Pancakes 

Frosted with syrup and fresh berries.  

8. Cheese Cake 

Who says cake can't be cheesy? This one's a Gouda alternative if sweet isn't your thing! 

Fabulous Friday: Cakes We Adore

What's better than digging into your favorite slice of cake after dancing off a few calories? Especially when the cake looks as good as it tastes! We love the unique designs that our brides + PLB have come up with! Whether it's a small cutting cake or 3 tiers, each cake brings a special design element to the reception. We absolutely love the gold foil trend that has taken off! However, we can't discriminate against cake... Naked cakes, or even traditional simple buttercream cakes adorned with fresh flowers are sometimes too pretty too eat. We are blessed with some amazingly talented bakers who make cakes that not only look good, but taste amazing too! Check out some of our favorites!
