non traditional wedding cakes
One of my favorite treats to whip up has to be Rice Krispie Treats – all ooey and gooey with extra marshmallows.
It’s an easy dessert to make and it’s guaranteed to please even the pickiest of dessert eaters.
So, how fun would it be to serve a Rice Krispie wedding cake? This has to be one of the best non-traditional wedding cake ideas I’ve seen. Read More
I love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.
Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.
But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!
I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!
You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).
And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.
You’ll find this cupcake and cake tower here.
A black wedding cake might not seem like the most traditional wedding cake – but that’s why I love the concept!
Imagine the surprise when your guests spot this dramatic and gorgeous black wedding cake at your reception!
I love the rustic look of the icing and the the addition of fall foliage including deep red roses, succulents, and even moss! Read More
Sometimes you just want doughnuts, right?
So why not serve a wedding cake made completely out of doughnuts? That is something your guests will absolutely not expect.
I love the idea of a totally non-traditional wedding cake like this.
It would be especially cool if you were hosting a brunch-style reception or if you were going for a totally non-traditional type of reception. Read More
If there’s one non-traditional wedding cake that I’ll always be a fan of it’s the chocolate wedding cake.
Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?
The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible! Read More
Let them eat … doughnuts!
Sometimes you just want to be a litte non-traditional, right? So why not consider skipping the wedding cake entirely and giving your guests a different sweet treat?
While this type of “wedding cake” isn’t what most people are expecting, it’s always fun to do something different. Plus, just about everybody loves doughnuts. Read More
Now this is a fun wedding cake!
How often have you seen a wedding cake shaped like a barrel? Never, right?
Well now you can say that you’ve seen it all.
I absolutely love the charm and humor of this wedding cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom!
The story behind this cake is that the reception was held in a rustic, traditional English pub and the cake was created to reflect the venue. Now that’s a pub I’d like to visit! Read More
I’m a big fan of traditional wedding cakes – white frosting, flowers, cake topper.
But I’m also becoming a fan of the more non-traditional cakes we’ve been featuring here.
And every now and then I find an ultra modern wedding cake that knocks my socks off.
This is one of those cakes.
From the straight lines of the square tiers to the 3D illusion of the sugar paste rings, this cake has it going on! Read More
Sometimes when I'm looking for wedding cakes it's all flowers and embellishments. But every now and then I find a cake where simplicity is what makes it gorgeous.
This is one of those cakes.
It's your basic, run-of-the-mill five tier white cake. And on its own that would be a stunning cake and you could add some fresh flowers to make it really pop. And you'd have a pretty but basic wedding cake.
I love this cake for the simple fact that it goes beyond the flowers with a brightly hued glaze in between each layer. Read More
