Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding Cake
December 22, 2014

The tradition of the wedding cake has been around for hundreds of years. Although it is still a highly popular tradition and trend in the wedding industry, many brides and grooms are actually opting for other dessert options. If you’re looking to spice up your wedding and add a personal touch to the reception, choose one of these wedding cake alternatives!

A Cupcake Tree

What better way to surprise your guests and make sure that your dessert options are a blast than with scrumptious and rich cupcakes? Cupcakes can be just as customized as a wedding cake. From the flavors to the decorations to the structure of the cupcake tree, your cupcakes can match your theme and meet your wedding desires!

Ice Cream Bar

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream at weddings! How cool (literally) would it be if you allowed your guests to create their very own ice cream sundae at your big day? All you need is a few flavors of ice cream, multiple toppings, and a large amount of whipped cream, and you’re all set.

A Candy Bar

This dessert option can also double as a wedding favor idea. In the back of your reception room, set up an elegant candy bar full of your favorite sweets. Give each guest a bag and let them fill it up with their personal candy choices! Not only do your guests now have a bag of candy for the road, but also they are full from dessert.


Are you more of a pie lover? No problem! It’s your wedding and you can do what you want, such as having a pie instead of a cake. Be sure to offer a variety of pie flavors, including your personal favorite. You can either have the pie served to your guests or have them serve themselves!
