Traditional wedding cakes work for some couples, but here’s an idea: get creative with dessert! There is no book of wedding rules that says “Let them eat cake.” How about changing things up a bit?

Here are a few yummy ideas that might be a better fit for your wedding dinner finale:

  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Cupcakes
  • Chocolate Chip or Sugar Cookies
  • Petit Fours
  • Peanut Butter Cups

Virtually any dessert you choose can be displayed in a way that reflects the traditional dessert “tower” if that’s a look you are going for. You can definitely choose decorative desserts that coordinate with your wedding theme. If you are looking for some visuals, Google “wedding cake alternatives” and click on “images”.

Your wedding style should reflect your style and that of your fiance. Maybe you are not cake people…Think outside the cake box!
