Wedding Cakes & Reception Dessert Alternatives - To CAKE or Not To Cake!

To CAKE or Not To Cake - That Is The Question?

After having a fun discussion regarding wedding cakes with a friend, we came to the conclusion that there are many new ideas and ways to serve dessert at a reception. The following ideas may assist you in your wedding planning. Join Judith Rivers-Moore on her Blog to add your input on this subject.

While wedding cakes are "truce centerpieces" to a reception, many brides like to bring refreshing ideas to their guests.

#1. Reception trends are growing for cupcake tiers, beautiful cookies and tiny fruit tarts. These are colorful and presented beautifully for wedding celebrations. They can be served individually on dessert plates or placed at food stations in your room and the cost factor may be about the same.  Find great bakers and dessert links on

#2. Chocolate Fountains with fresh fruit, cookie and marsh mellows find people meeting and socializing at weddings in a fun way. Continuing to return to the chocolate fountain is an exhilarating habit!

#3. Ice Cream sundae-making stations can be fun for all ages.

#4. Dove Bar serving and frozen yogurts from a decorated freezer station

#5. Decorated Wedding Cakes can still be set on a dessert table and photos taken. There are bakers and caterers who will create the foam base with the cake choice in the top tier(s) to cut for your wedding photographs. Elegant, and nobody knows.

We understand there are excellent vegan bakeries in most regions, and the sugar free and gluten free ideas may be important to include at the reception. You will find many of these businesses linked throughout .

  2. Do not limit your thinking to a two or three tier cake. It can be round, square, a sheet cake, a sculpted cake, individual mini cakes, cupcakes. Some brides even choose a one or two layer, individual wedding cake on each guest table rather than the traditional large cake at the head table.
