8 Alternative Wedding Cake Options

Don't get us wrong - we love a good beautiful cake (especially one from our friends at Piece of Cake Desserts!) However, we know that wedding cake isn't for everyone! While we love ourselves some wedding cake, we always think it is so cool when our couples step outside of the 'dessert box'! Here are a few of our favorite non wedding cake dessert options!

1. Tiered Donuts

You can never go wrong with donuts! We especially love this design with the ombre frosting colors. You can have your donuts match your wedding colors. How cool is that!?

2. Macaroon Tower

These French inspired cookies are perfectly served with coffee or tea, and create that luxurious aspect to your wedding that you can't just get from the traditional cake!

3. Assorted individual pies

Having individually pies that are an assortment of flavors is such a unique and delicious change from a cake! The buttery and flaky crust to the warm gooey filling will be a crowd pleaser with everyone! By creating cute labels on each one that matches the wedding theme, flavors that represent the bride and groom's personalities - no one will even miss the cake!

4. Cupcake Bar

If you don't want to stray too far from wedding cake, opt for a cupcake tower! Mini cupcakes are such an easy and simple way to go, but still unique and classy. You can even match the cupcake wrappers to your wedding colors and theme!

5. Crepes/Waffle/Pancake Cake

We couldn't decide which one would taste better, so we put all three as an option! These options are perfect for those who love breakfast for dinner! You can have your waffles, pancakes or crepes stacked layers on layers with so many different flavors!

6. Cake Pops

Cake pops are everywhere and so popular. Instead of having pieces of cake, this is such a great option to grab-and-go. Kids and adults will all be satisfied this option, and it will make your life so much easier!

7. Truffle Bar

Why not have a decadent dessert that is still sweet, but also has that luxurious royalty feel to it? We believe that it is always better to have truffles than to not. With truffles you can have an assortment of flavors inside that is a surprise to all the guests! Make multiple tiered cakes with them, or actually have a truffle bar that the guests can choose from!

8. Assortment of cookies

Variety is key when it comes to hosting a cookie bar! You can even make a "cake tower" out of your favorite cookies, have a big cookie cake, or have the assortment of different flavored cookies! You can also get fancy with these and have flavors ranging from pistachio cardamom to dulce de leche!

These are just a few ideas that we believe are unique and delicious! There are so many more options to choose from, ranging from decadent eclairs to an ice cream bar! The sky is the limit when choosing alternative wedding dessert options!
