Who doesn’t want to indulge themselves in some kind of sweet sugary pleasure? And when it comes to bridal cakes, we know that not many people can resist the temptation. But what if you’re looking for a more creative option than the classic wedding cake every other couple chooses?
As experienced photographers, we’ve seen a lot, especially when it comes to wedding cakes – and some of their unique, mindblowing alternatives. Today, we present you with the wedding cake alternatives that made it into our top 5 list!
So, if you have already decided that the standard reception experience just doesn’t do it for you, feel free to choose some of the following dessert options:
We still haven’t met a person who could say no to pancakes, so we can confidently say that this option will make your guests happy. You can choose to serve your pancakes with any kind of toppings you like. The options are endless, from chocolate-spread bananas to fresh berries and whipped cream!
And if you don’t want to miss out on the cutting cake experience, feel free to stack those pancakes in a cake shape. Decorate them with a few elements of your toppings, flowers, or simply a few berries!
This traditional Italian dessert makes one of the best wedding cake ideas. If what you were looking for was a delicate yet flavorful dessert, then this one is for you.
It is made from puff pastry, custard cream, and fresh fruit, which gives it a bridal cake-like appearance. Due to its light taste, this delicacy would also make a great choice for your summer nuptial.
The dessert’s classic, its majesty – The Donut – made its way to many bridal tables, too! These sweet pleasures have become one of the most popular wedding cake ideas in recent years. They can be displayed in a pyramid shape and have them glazed with different flavored toppings.
You can request the donuts to be made in a bite-size, which would make an even more convenient dessert option.

If you’re a big fan of French pastries, then this one should definitely make its way into your wedding cake alternatives list.
Macarons are often considered a fine delicacy, which is why they’re enjoyed by many. You can choose to arrange and display them in different ways, and you can also consider getting a custom-made stand.
The best part is that you can choose the color of macarons to match your reception theme and color palette!
Although it might not sound like the greatest revolutionary idea out there, cupcakes aren’t necessarily a plain option. How you choose to display them and how your pastry chef decorates them can greatly alter their simple appearance.
We hope that these wedding cake alternatives inspired you to reconsider the classic bridal cake option!
