Traditionally wedding cake conjures up visions of vanilla or chocolate cake and buttercream frosting with sugar roses and an equally delicious cream filling. But who wants to do everything by tradition? Nowadays, choices abound when it comes to wedding cake. Why not consider wedding cake pops, cupcakes, individual cakes, pies or how about a fun dessert bar? We’ve collected some awesome yumminess to give you some inspiration. You can start drooling now! ;)
Aren’t individual mini-cakes (not cupcakes) just so darn adorable? Not necessarily bite-size, but definitely plate-size.
Yes, these are mini cakes designed to look like a box of chocolates. Wouldn’t this be a sweet surprise for guests in the middle of their table? Yes, yes it would!
Anything in a mason jar is yummy, right? How about cheesecake (my favorite) or even homemade ice cream? Portable and fun. Yum!
I think that pies are the perfect comfort food at a wedding. Think of all the possibilities…cherry, pumpkin, apple, blueberry, lemon meringue, berry, oh my! And they can come in full size, or even better, bite size!
And what’s not to love about a cookie? At a wedding? Yes, please! Cookies with milk shooters (great for the little ones who want to party like big people) and they make great favors for a late night snack for your guests on the way home. Even better, cookies that are stacked to look like mini wedding cakes – best of both worlds!
While not traditional, cupcakes and even cake pops are becoming more and more commonplace at weddings. But I mean really, with all the varieties available, these little cuties are anything but mainstream, except maybe a cake pop that looks like a cake. :)
Dessert bars have always been a popular alternative but today the creativity really stands out! Whether you serve it up right after dinner or as a late night treat, there is usually something for everyone’s sweet tooth!
I could have gone on and on but I think you get the idea. There are literally so many possibilities today. It’s no longer about tradition, it’s really about what you love to indulge in when it comes to dessert. You can have your cake or cupcake or cookies or pies and …. Eat them all!
