Couples today are looking for something a little different when it comes to their wedding day desert. The idea of the traditional wedding cake is no more for some and instead they are considering more contemporary solutions. Towers of macaroons, a cupcake wedding cake and even cheese wedding cakes are becoming popular.
These types of wedding cakes offer many benefits to the wedding couple; not only do they help to cut costs, they can be easily assembled without assistance and also can make a real statement. For example, a cheese wedding cake can be effectively constructed by the couple themselves, saving money as well as giving them the opportunity to add a bit of personal character to the cake. In addition, a macaroon tower is a great way to highlight the colour theme of the wedding and cuts out the need for the desert to be served up – guests can pick and choose as they wish.It is clear that alternative wedding cakes definitely allow for more diversity in a wedding.
That’s not to say that the traditional wedding cake is old hat either, it will continue to take pride of place in wedding venues around the world. For many, it is still a crucial symbol at a wedding and it is likely to remain this way for certain couples. However, for those that are brave enough to break the rules, there is definitely no shortage of options for alternative wedding cakes.
