Traditionally, weddings are celebrated with the cutting of a cake that the couple share together. Then a piece is saved, frozen, and shared on their first year anniversary as per tradition. However, not every couple are big fans of cake. When that’s the case, you start to look into alternatives of something that you both would enjoy. It could be a range of different things. From other sweet bakery items, to something more savory for those who don’t have a sweet tooth. Below are our suggestions for some unique alternatives to the traditional wedding cake. 


  • Cheesecake - sometimes it’s the only cake non-cake people enjoy!

  • Ice cream cake - For those who hate cake, but love ice cream.

  • Rice Krispie cake - Think of a giant rice krispie treat shaped as a cake!

  • Pie - A popular alternative. 

  • Donuts - You don’t have to cut it, you could just share it.

  • Fruit - Think about it, fruit shaped as a cake.

  • Cheese - Not a cheesecake, but a cheese cake. Made of wheels of cheese, decorated like a charcuterie board! A more savory alternative.

  • Crepes or Pancakes - a stack of them to make it tall enough, but a great alternative. Even a good brunch wedding idea!


Ultimately, it’s fun to decide on what you want to celebrate with. Whether it’s a cake, other sweet item, something savory, or something else entirely. As long as you pick something you both enjoy, it’ll make for great memories to come. Be sure to try and get a tasting if you can!
