Your wedding cake doesn’t necessarily have to be traditional three-tiered spectacular! Plenty of weddings are making heads turn by adding unusual twists to an old classic. Providing an alternative cake is fun and creative and adds an especially bold statement onto your special day. Presented thoughtfully your guests will simply love the unusual surprise and you can be sure it will create some unforgettable memories.
Food specific wedding cakes are currently going down an absolute storm. A multi-tiered cheese cake, quite literally a cake built up of large circular blocks of artisan cheese (in the style of a traditional tiered cake) are proving exceptionally popular this season. These towers of cheese are a bold statement and add another inspiring focal point to your special day. There’s also plenty of opportunity to personally cultivate your own bespoke cake by selecting the exact cheeses, at the exact tier, that you require.
Of course the cheese wedding cake has fantastic a novelty factor but it means guests can also mix and match their cheeses, adding bits of fruit and biscuits as they go. A cheese board selection always goes down well at a wedding and having a cheese cake centerpiece ticks lots of boxes and has the potential to be a really spectacular alternative!
This trend looks set to continue, but there are other twists on the horizon. Believe it or not pork pie “wedding pies” offer another exciting alternative which will leave guests as surprised as they are delighted. Wedding pies are increasingly popular and come in various sizes, layers and even flavours of your choosing. Decorated elegantly with flowers wedding pies can look and taste sensational, bringing smiles in abundance.
Donuts, Popcorn, Ice Cream
Don’t underestimate the power of these classic sweets to please. Served from an eye catching deluxe Victorian style dispenser (with accompanying well-dressed assistant) these desserts are not only crowd pleasers but look beautiful and rustic too. And it’s not just the younger generation that love these classic treats, they provide mouth-watering fun for all ages.
Depending on your chosen dessert you can add a further twist to the proceedings by offering a ‘build your own’ feature allowing your guests to become an even greater part of the proceedings. Doing this fires your guest’s imagination, gets them having fun and interacting with other guests around your chosen feature.
Ultimately offering wedding cake alternatives needn’t be a daunting prospect. With a little thought and imagination non-traditional cakes have massive appeal to your guests and have the potential to really compliment the keynote of your day.
