No Cake, No Problem!

If you’re looking to add a personal and original touch to your wedding and aren’t fully sold on the idea of a wedding cake, the options are endless! The newest craze about wedding cakes is not having one. If you think about your favorite dessert, chances are a piece of cake isn’t the first thing to come to mind. Whatever does come to mind, could potentially take the place of your wedding cake. The bonus about non-cake desserts for weddings is that there are an unlimited number of ways to present them to your reception guests. My favorite presentation of a wedding dessert has to be the donut wall pictued below. Not only does it save space at your venue, but it creates the perfect backgdrop for your guests to take photos to remember your special day. 

If you think that choosing a dessert that isn’t cake will make you miss out on the ceremonial cake cutting, fear not. At one of the weddings we had the pleasure of planning, the bride and groom decided on an adorable cinnamon bun tower. When it came time to cut the cake, we gave the groom a warm ladle of icing that he then poured all over the tower for a cute photo opp. We gave every guest his or her own miniature mason jar of cold milk to enjoy the warm cinnamon bun. This not only added a personal touch to their wedding, but made guests excited to experience something they never anticipated. The way you present your dessert is entirley up to your own imagination and style, so have fun with it!
