We love a good cake here at MMU so today we’re talking about some unique and alternative wedding cake ideas.
Long gone are the days of traditional, tiered fruitcakes, where the cake was simply there to be cut and eaten. Cakes have now become a primary element of wedding themes, with couples opting for brighter colours, amazing flavour combinations, personalised cake toppers, sweets, and real flowers. With this in mind we wanted to show you some inspirational cakes that have been featured on some of the weddings we’ve shared… Enjoy!
Why not ditch the singular wedding cake altogether and go for a tower of macaroons, cupcakes, doughnuts, brownies, mini desserts…the options are endless! A dessert tower also serves as a great ‘grab and go’ opportunity to keep everyone topped up for a night of partying!
For Bride’s who are on a tight budget and can’t splash out on an extravagant cake, a dessert table is a fab idea. Ask guests to bring along a homemade dessert or cake each and display them all on a large table. Stick some tiny flags in the top detailing what they are and you’re done! This will save you a tonne of money, give your guests a large variety and add a wonderful personal touch to your day.
For those who don’t have a sweet tooth, what about a savoury cake!? For example, if you love cheese more than cake then have a ‘cheese’ cake! Tiers of cheese wheels (pork pies work well too!) decorated with bunches of grapes, figs and a cool cake topper look amazing, and will be a great talking point for your guests.
Wedding cakes are no longer required to look like cakes at all if you don’t want them to. As more and more couples are wanting to inject their personality into every aspect of their wedding, the cake is a great place to start. Why have a plain white tiered cake when you can have a piece of art that reflects your loves and interests? Providing you have a quality baker, the world is your oyster.
