More and more couples are ditching the classic white wedding cake and opting for other non-traditional desserts. Here are some creative suggestions that are an alternative to traditional wedding cake.
Doughnut walls make the perfect dessert bar backdrop for your wedding. They are affordable, trendy and your guests will love taking photos with them. They are also a treat that is enjoyed by most guests, from your flower girl to your grandpa and they are incredibly easy to serve. You can also offer your guests an assortment of flavours. They are adaptable for any style wedding, as you can make the doughnut wall look romantic or modern, depending on the look you are going for.
Ice Cream Bar
Summer and ice cream go hand in hand. Serve your favourite ice cream flavours along with your favourite toppings. Some ideas for yummy toppings include sprinkles, nuts, fudge crumble, smarties and jelly babies. Opt for sugar cones and a gluten-free option for guests with dietary requirements. A cute chalkboard sign adds to the final touch.
Hot Chocolate Bar
This is the perfect dessert option for a winter wedding. Offer guests a variety of different flavoured hot chocolate such as white, milk and dark hot chocolate. You could also have alcoholic options for the adults and let guests add delicious liqueurs to their hot chocolate. We suggest Van der Hum for that sweet orange taste or Frangelico for a nutty flavour. If you are having a summer wedding, try a milkshake bar instead, where guests could blend their own shakes.
Cheese Wheel ‘cake’
This is an ideal option for those who don’t have a sweet tooth. Choose an assortment of cheeses from a creamy brie to a sweet Wensleydale. Decorate the wheels of cheese with grapes, figs, berries and flowers. This alternative adds a chic twist on your typical dessert or late night snack.
Profiteroles are a very popular dessert in France. They are filled with cream and can be garnished with chocolate or caramel. Having a croquembouche tower at your wedding will be sure to impress guests!
