For you fun, funky, fresh couples we’ve got some amazing alternatives to that boring old wedding cake. Creative, colorful and just damn delicious check out the sweet alternatives below!
Rice Crispy Treats
Simple, sweet and understated–there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned Rice Crispy Treat. This one is for the non-traditional couple who love a bit of rustic romance.
Glazed, iced, or filled, there is nothing but love in a giant tower of doughnuts. Use your wedding colors as an accent in icing to make this cake alternative a part of your beautiful decor!
Get down and dirty with your sweet Italian roots and serve a plethora of Cannoncini or Creme Horns in lieu of a cake. These might look slightly romantic, but they are one sinfully sweet and decadent cake replacement.

Some couples simply don’t like sweets. That’s okay. For you, there is plenty of delicious cheese to go around. Think wine, cheese, figs, dates–the perfect winter wedding cake alternative!

Ice Cream Truck
For the modern couple who want to employ a bit of yesteryear to their outdoor wedding, an ice cream truck gives guests a little bit of an adventure in choosing their dessert.
Tiers of macarons are one of the most delicious looking cake alternatives–especially if you go for a color palette on your big day. For the bride who can’t quite choose one or two colors, this is the most beautiful way to ditch the traditional cake.
