Butter cream icing and white fondant is very traditional for weddings. However, if these don’t appeal to you or fit your personality, there are numerous other options for your wedding cake. I personally don’t like cake so I have been browsing for alternatives. Here are some of the more popular options from the last couple of years!
Chocolate Fountains:Chocolate fountains are beautiful and very classy at wedding receptions. As a bonus, they are also very affordable and very tasty! Offer a wide variety of food to dip in the chocolate. Options include strawberries, bananas, pineapple, cream puffs, angel food cake, marshmallow, and pretzels. Just avoid standing too close to the chocolate fountain if you’re the bride! You don’t want to have chocolate stains on your wedding dress! Find chocolate fountains in Provo here!
Groom’s Cakes:A groom’s cake is a longstanding tradition in the southern U.S. It is usually a gift from the bride to the groom. It is typically smaller than the wedding cake, and is usually a chocolate cake. Most of the time, the cake is decorated to reflect a particular hobby or interest of the groom. Tradition said that the groom’s cake was not to be served at the wedding reception. Instead, it would be sliced and packaged for single women at the wedding. They would then take their pieces of cake home and sleep with it under their pillows in hopes of dreaming of their future husbands.
Candy Buffet: Candy is such a fun treat that brings out our inner child. A candy buffet can also be used for wedding favors for your guests. Include bags or boxes for guests to take away. The easiest way to choose candies is to consider your own wedding colors. Check out candywarehouse.com for a variety of candy. Place candy in jars, clear containers, and buy or rent old-fashioned candy scoops.
Cupcakes: Cupcakes are one of my favorite wedding trends! Place individual cupcakes on tiered stands for the traditional wedding cake shape. Cupcakes are sometimes advantageous over cake because they can be made in a variety of flavors, instead of just a single flavor as is the case in most wedding cakes. Your guests are sure to find a flavor to like if you use cupcakes. Wedding cupcakes are easier than most cakes too! They can be made several weeks in advance and frozen in airtight containers.
