Ideas for Wedding Cake Alternatives

By Angela Rotundo on October 09, 2017

Why let them eat cake, when your guests can indulge in these sugary delights?

Pie Table

Create a table with all your favourite pies. An option: have mini pies as favours and your guests will leave satisfied.

Whoopee Pies

These are made of two round pieces of chocolate, pumpkin or gingerbread cake with a creamy filling sandwiched between them.

Macaron Towers

Display on three tiers for a great presentation. The colour and flavour options are endless and can match any colour or wedding theme.

“Cheese” Cake

Swap your traditional cake for a “cheese” cake – tiers and tiers of your favourite wheels of cheese. Adorn with fresh fruit like grapes and figs for pops of colour.


You might stack donuts in tiers or hang them individually on a wall. Chocolate, glazed, crueler or apple fritter – the sky’s the limit.


Perfect for an outdoor, rustic wedding. Set up a s’mores station, have a fire pit and send a s’mores kit home with each guest.

Mini Naked Cakes

These tiny cakes with scrumptious fillings look almost too good to eat.
