21 Delish Wedding Cake Alternatives

Oh boy. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I’ve had my first ever blog post here. Do you even remember what was it about? Well, it was about cakes — wedding cakes : a variety of wedding cakes inspirations for you to feast on. So, it is by no mistake that I’m tackling this topic again — with a twist. 🙂

I’ve always been amazed at the ingenuity of the brides today. They know what they want and they have wild, vivid and new ideas that continuously recreate the ever-evolving wedding scene whether with the help of professionals or through their own means using somewhere like an Event Supply Shop that could help them to get their big day off the ground. There is so much that goes into planning a wedding, from finding the perfect wedding photographer (such as snohomish photographer), or getting your dream dress. For me, it’s the wedding cake that I can’t wait for. While I have yet to meet a person who does not like cakes – or will not eat cakes, for that matter – I have collected and summarized for you dear cherries my list of sinfully delicious, equally mouthwatering wedding cake alternatives. Oh yes! This is good news for all you non-wedding-traditionalists! If you’re not too keen on having the traditional wedding cake, are interested in ready made fruit cakes to buy or if you just want to explore other options, read on because you’re in for a treat! 🙂

Let’s get the ball rolling and check out from 1 to 21 the next-best-thing wedding cake alternatives you could choose from! Have fun loves! ?

1. The Oreo Wedding Cake – pair it up with milk instead of wine. Will remind you of those childhood late-night fridge raids. Cute, don’t you think? 🙂

4. The Wreath Wedding Cake – is called a Norwegian Kransekake (wreath cake). This is a traditional Danish (kransekage) and Norwegian (kransekake/kransekaka) dessert and ideally, is hard to the touch yet is soft and chewy.

11. The Bundt Wedding Cake – since the characterizing feature is the shape, this cake does not conform to any single recipe so you’re actually free to use (or even invent, if you’re in the mood) your favorite cake recipe.

20. The Biscuit Wedding Cake – just as tasty, this budget-friendly cake alternative can also double up as wedding favors. You could place the biscuit/s in pretty boxes, or wrap in colorful tissues then tie it up with a ribbon, or use a kraft paper bag decorated with a doily and attach to it your thank-you tag, or just place it in small transparent plastic bag then tie it up with something glittery.
