Wedding cakes are the centrepiece of the wedding reception. Careful consideration goes into the cake topper, the style and size of the cake, and the flavour of the filling. On the special day itself, the guests wait with bated breath for the moment the cake is cut. However, cake isn’t necessarily to everyone’s taste. Some couples opt to look for something different, so if you’re wanting an alternative, here are a few suggestions:

1. Profiteroles

It might not be the first thing to spring to mind, but a profiterole tower is quite common in French weddings. Known as a Croquembouche, this delightful dessert is both impressively attractive and delicious. The profiteroles are traditionally held together with spun sugar, caramel or chocolate, and are often decorated with a variety of other sweet edibles, such as macarons or sugared almonds.

2. Cheese

If you’re more of a savoury lover, a cheese board can make for a wonderful alternative to a wedding cake. If you still fancy the look of a multi-tier focal point, you could layer different types of cheeses for an eye-catching mix of textures.

3. Baklava

This Mediterranean sweet pastry can be stacked in layers, which lends itself perfectly to being arranged into a unique and sumptuous wedding cake alternative. Its rich sweetness and perfect combination of nuts and honey is perfect to satisfy any sweet tooth.
