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!
