We all know how hard it is to choose your wedding cake. There are so many choices and possibilities. But, what if a wedding cake simply isn’t your favorite? Whether you want to completely avoid the traditional wedding cake design or if you simply want to add your own twist, use this gathering of non-traditional wedding cake designs as inspiration to help you make up your mind!
There’s so much beauty to be found in unusual wedding cakes. Unique weddings cakes should represent the couple and their preferences such as their own favorite desserts. If you’re favorite isn’t cake, then you don’t feel obligated to have it at your wedding. Instead, celebrate with the desserts (or non-desserts!) that you love the most. Whether it’s macaroons, cupcakes, or puff pastry – you and your guests should embrace those delicious desserts you crave.
Pretty much any dessert can be used to inspire wedding cake ideas. You can find a way to tier your favorite dessert to resemble the three-tiered wedding cake or you can simply forgo the tiered effect and create a spread fit for a feast! We never complain when we see a spread of pie, cookies, or even ice cream. Read on for some inspiration for non-traditional wedding cake ideas.
The Most Delicious Non-Traditional Wedding Cake Ideas
1) The Ice Cream Cone Cake – Fill it with your favorite frozen flavors or even with cake batter for a completely scrumptious and unique dessert inspired by summer.
2) A Cake of Mini Cakes – Tier a whole bunch of delicious mini cakes as an alternative to both a traditional wedding cake and a tier of cupcakes. We love this recipe for a Banana Split Mini Cake or this Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Mini Cake.
3) Tiers of Cookies – We can’t decide what we like more: this amazing spread of cookies or this giant cookie cake. We’re totally fine with eating both, thanks.
4) A Donut Bar – To put it frankly, this sounds like heaven. We like the idea of using this for both a brunch and an evening wedding. Basically, donuts are great at any time of the day.
