Alternative Dessert Ideas for Wedding Cake


The bride and groom cutting and then feeding each other slices of cake has become a tradition in modern-day weddings. However, although wedding cakes are one of the most accepted dessert choices for weddings, people are starting to shy away from the traditional multi-tiered wedding cake. Donuts, macaroon towers, churro stations, candy bars, or make-your-own s’more stations are all yummy, alternative options. You can choose what desserts to serve at your wedding based on the bride and groom’s favorite snacks, family traditions, or you can choose to coordinate desserts to match with your color scheme. Another great idea is to choose what desserts to serve based on the season- popsicles or a cold ice cream bar could be a great choice for warmer outdoor weddings held in the late spring or summer, while caramel apples or hot chocolate and cookies would be a good option for a chilly fall or winter wedding. Whatever you choose, make sure it will appeal to everyone’s sweet tooth!
