Not keen on the idea of forking out big bucks for a wedding cake? I found some of my favorite cake alternatives to share with you. The best part is that you can make many of these desserts yourself – which means more cash in your pocket. (Oh, and I have excluded cupcakes because they are the next obvious choice after cake).
I like the idea of using every day treats to wow your guests on your big day. So why not use Rice Krispie squares, cinnamon buns, Oreos or even DONUTS?
If you are looking for something more delicate, why not incorporate your favorite ice box cookie or my new favorite dessert, macaroons?
Thinking outside the box is one of the best parts of having a small wedding. You don’t have to follow the rules; make up your own rules!
Cake pops and cake balls are a fun dessert! En masse they look amazing!
Strawberry shortcake anyone?
If your wedding is during the hot summer months, a nice ice cream sandwich would be a welcomed sweet for all your guests.
And if you aren’t a sweets kind of gal, you could always incorporated a cheese wedding cake into your theme.
