The Cheese “Cake”


Do you and your future husband appreciate a properly aged cheddar or a delicious and flavorful gouda? Then a cheese cake might be perfect for you! We love this idea, combined with plates on each table featuring gourmet crackers, olives, and smoked meats.

Do you love donuts? If you’ve dreamed of a wedding cake created from donuts of all kinds – filled and coated and sprinkled – then this is the cake for you. It’s definitely unique and gives guests a little more choice than the traditional wedding cake.

Gourmet Cookies


Why not create your wedding cake from delicious gourmet cookies? These lemon icebox cookies look absolutely scrumptious and make a beautiful wedding cake as well.

The Pancake Wedding Cake


For a wedding brunch reception, a pancake wedding cake is not only delicious but absolutely genius. It’s a wonderful wedding cake alternative and gives guests their dose of sweet and sugary combined with a variety of other delicious breakfast foods.

Wedding Pies


I have a great friend whose husband simply doesn’t like cake, but loves pies of all sorts. This would be the perfect alternative for them; wedding pies! The great thing about this idea is that it gives guests a variety of options, so there’s sure to be something every guest will love.
