11 Cake Alternatives That Will Make Your Wedding Unforgettable

The wedding cake is a major part of matrimonial tradition. There’s even a whole portion of the reception devoted to cutting the cake! Slicing a piece of overpriced dessert shouldn’t be a spectator sport, and yet—people can’t wait to see a groom smush icing into the bride’s mouth. If you really want to give your guests something to look at, why not try skipping the cake all together? 

We’ve found 11 tasty wedding cake alternatives that will keep even the most conservative of wedding guests well fed and happy.
