Nothing screams “90’s wedding” like vanilla cake with buttercream. Nothing brings to mind images of weddings circa 2002 faster than globs of fondant. For a fresh take on the standard wedding dessert check out these 7 non traditional wedding cakes and get inspired to leave your wedding guests craving more.
“I want more buttercream!” said no one ever….
The inside-out/ deconstructed wedding cake
Redefine the tired wedding cake by serving your guests the visually unexpected. Show off the insides of your luscious cake by opting for layers filled with seasonal fruit or accenting them with specific flowers instead of picking the typical sheath of icing.
The cake pop wedding cake
For a serious wow-worthy moment opt for a wedding cake constructed from individual cake pops. You still can achieve the dramatic look of multiple tiers but you’ll skip on the cake-cutting cost by allowing guests to serve themselves by grabbing a pop or two.
The pie wedding cake
Let them eat pie! Pick your favorite flavor or dedicate each tier to a different filling and you will have a simple yet chic dessert for your reception. Pies are all of the rage and with endless flavors to pick from it could easily take a day to taste and customize your stacks. Sampling endless pie…I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon.
The macaron wedding cake
These sweet treats can be ordered to compliment any color scheme while adding a modern vibe to your dessert display. Whether it is is a supplement accent or the entire “cake” this french treat adds a sweet spirit to any American wedding.
The breakfast wedding cake
For a totally unique last course, why not serve your favorite first meal of the day? Crepes, doughnuts, or pancakes can all be stacked in the shape of a classic wedding cake but that is the only thing conventional about this tempting dessert.
The rice krispie wedding cake
Redefine the wedding cake by sticking to the traditional stacked silhouette but ordering your favorite dessert instead. If you prefer cereal treats to cake then go for the rice krispies. You’ll score points for adding personality to your event by staying true to yourself and serving your interpretation of the perfect wedding “cake.”
The cookie wedding cake
Allow guest to sample different treats by ordering a variety of cookies and encouraging them to taste away. Cookie cakes can be composed entirely of the bride or groom’s other true love or a fun mix of delicate treats.
