While you can’t go wrong having a nice big cake on your wedding day, sometimes it’s fun to mix things up a bit and try something a little different. Here are some delicious alternatives.

1. Cheese

If you’re more a fan of savory flavors and you know your guests will be too, then a cake made of cheese will go down as a hit on your wedding day. Pick a variety of different types to suit all tastes and serve with lots of crackers

2. Doughnut tower

A fun sweet alternative, stacks of doughnuts always look great and are super easy for everyone to eat too. Mix it up and get a few different flavors and stack them up neatly - how you style them is entirely up to you.

3. Mini desserts

A chic alternative to a big cake is lots of lovely mini desserts. They look great presented in mass or as part of a dessert table and give you the opportunity to provide different options for your guests.

4. Croquembouche

Do as the French do and trade in the traditional wedding cake for a rather fancy croquembouche. A cone formed of delicious cream filled profiteroles, it’s a lovely spectacle to have out on display.

5. Brownie tower

Sometimes you just can’t beat the gooey richness of delicious brownies. A firm favorite with any chocolate obsessives out there, this is guaranteed to go down a treat with your guests.

6. Pavlova

A summery favorite and often the choice for dessert at many a wedding, why not just go all out and make the wedding cake one big pavlova!

7. Pic and Mix bar

An oldie but a goodie, pic and mix will always go down a treat after dinner with your guests. It’s also perfect for when they get the munchies later too!

8. Sugary grazing table

Give your guests lots of choice and set up a beautiful sugary grazing table - both tasty to eat and lovely to look at. This may feature cake (so you’ll have something to cut!) alongside biscuits, doughnuts and sweets.

9. Cheesecake

If you’re more of a dessert person, then a multi-tiered cheesecake cake will suit you perfectly. It’ll function much like an actual cake so you can cut it for photos, but it’s something just that little bit different

10. Cookies

For the biscuit fiends among you, a cake made of biscuits or an entire wall of biscuits will be very hard to resist. A fun and unique alternative to a wedding cake, it’ll make for a slightly longer lasting ‘cake’ too.
