Non-Cake/Cake...

Don't like cake? Read this!!


There are many reasons why couples are choosing not to have a wedding cake at their reception. They may be seeking something nontraditional and edgy and as they become bored by "the norm".

Perhaps they have attended too many catered weddings where no one touched the cake because they'd already had a full meal plus dessert. Budget can be another reason seeing as though cakes (anddon't forget serving fees!) are awfully expensive -or maybe, just maybe, they plain old DON'T LIKE CAKE.

The secret to a wedding cake alternative is simple--PRESENTATION.

Whatever you're serving, think possibly stack it in tiers. You can get really creative in your dessert table and turn almost anything into food fit for the most special occasion.

Some fun alternatives to cake include: pies, ice cream sundaes (who doesn't love a good banana split), a candy bar, rice krispie treats, fudge, chocolate fountain, cake truffles and dessert shooters.

Again, the key to cake alternatives is presentation. I personally love when non-traditional desserts are stacked in tiers to look like a traditional wedding cake. It makes for a classy, yet fun twist to your dessert display. Look at all these colorful cake alternatives. What do you think??

What would you do instead of cake?

Greeting! What do you think of wow gold? I always lack of wow gold to buy some great item for my char before the wow patch 3.1 and I need to do wow power leveling for the cheapest wow gold or I have to search cheap wow gold on google search. The world changed since the 3.1 patch released. Short of buy wow gold for me wasn't so high frequency now. And I’m curious why this situation happened? The items became cheap? Or we can farm wow gold much easy? Hope someone can give me an answer.
