Wedding Cake Alternatives

 Cake has dominated the wedding industry for years. However, right now there is a trend to skip the cake all together or have your cake and other desserts too. Maybe cake is not your thing. For many people cake is okay, but they have a dessert that they simply swoon over. (Mine would be cheesecake by the way.) So, why not have that dessert at your wedding? You defiantly should, whether it is only that dessert or a combination of cake and your dream dessert. Below I have listed some fun alternatives or additions to cake. I doubt that cake will loose it’s premier spot, but maybe it will get a run for it’s money!

Here is a super fun option for your wedding that will bring out the kid in everyone. You can set up an old-fashioned ice cream bar complete with soda pop and assorted toppings.  Your guests can make their own floats and sundaes. If you are having an outdoor summer wedding, I think your guests would love this refreshing treat! Plus, if you want to go all out, you could have a waiter there making custom milkshakes and malts. Yummy!
