We all have a taste for something sweet but it may not be for cake! Since this is your wedding day and is a showcase of all the things you love, be yourself even when it comes to your cake. Do you love macaroons, tim tams or ice-cream? Then give away the traditional mud or fruit cake idea and turn your favourite sweet into your cake.
A treat from the French, these delicious desserts will be popular with your guests especially displayed as a tower. They can be coloured to your wedding colours and decorated to your theme should you choose. Macaroon Towers are a lovely centre piece to sweet buffets and make yummy take home gifts.
These are a popular choice at weddings. A display of your favourite lollies in gorgeous glass jars coloured to your wedding colours or theme. This is when the Macaroon Tower works great as a compliment as the centrepiece of the table. Make sure to put a sign up with the Candy Bar opening hours though or guests will demolish it before dinner!
If your fiance is anything like mine icecream doesn't last long in the house. Why not a have a ice-cream bar with your favourite different flavours and bowls of toppings: hundreds and thousands, strawberry syrup, waffles ... the list goes on.
A cute way to present icecream is a gelato cart. Not only is the cart cute but it can follow you down the beach, wait for you at the reception or be an evening treat at the end of the night.
If you're not an icecream fan but you love a popsicle well then have a popsicle bar/cart/van instead. This fresh style would be a welcome treat on a warm night or as a refreshing dessert instead of a full buffet. A few different flavours will do the trick.
Made of profiteroles (pastries stuffed with cream or custard) this French dessert is arranged as a tower and bound with drizzed toffee or chocolate. Tastes delightful.
Why go one favourite dessert option when you could go wild with a range of mini petits. Mix it up with a range of small confectionery or savoury appetizers.
These never go out of fashion. Cupcakes can be made into that many different flavours and decorated to your theme or colours. Who could go past all that butter-cream icing, though fondant icing with patterns look and taste just as good. Cupcake towers make a wonderful centrepiece and can be boxed as a favour for your guests at the end of the affair.
A great savoury alternative to a traditional or non traditional sweet wedding cake/dessert. Each wheel can be a different type of cheese, served with different condiments, pastes, fruit and biscuits. I had one couple have a cheese wheel as their wedding cake, after the ceremony it was cut and served to guests while the newlyweds went and had photos.
You may not be into cake but love a good lemon meringue pie, a cheesecake or apple pie. Make a large centrepiece for the top of the cake and serve mini lemon or apple pies to guests with a dollop of cream, delicious.
Ferrero Rocher comes to mind when I think of a chocolate that would make a great tower. Very easy to make yourself as well. Just think, what is your favourite chocolate that would display well as a tower.
Iced donuts in your wedding colours. Donuts rolled in sugar or jam and cream filled donuts, whatever you prefer!
Oreos, tim tams or speciality made wedding cookies are all ideas you could choose from. Tims Tams wouldn't last a day in my fridge so I think this would be my pick. Share with your guests your favourite cookies or biscuits. Lovely with a cup of tea or coffee for older guests as well.
