4 Unique Wedding Cakes Every Bride Should Consider

Searching for inspiration for unique wedding cakes? You’ve come to the right place!

With a wedding on the horizon, a lot of decisions have to be made. A wedding cake is like the centerpiece of a wedding.

Your edible piece of art is a big choice and will stand out in your memory for years to come.

If your big day is coming and you’d like to stand out from the status quo, there are plenty of wedding cake alternatives available to you.

In this article, we’ll look at 4 unique wedding cake ideas.

Unique Wedding Cakes


1. Something Elegant

While traditional white wedding cakes never go out of style, maybe you’ll find something a little more elegant to fit your needs.

Colors like white, gold, and silver make these cakes sleek and attractive.

Elegant wedding cakes are simpler, minimalistic versions of a traditional wedding cake. Some of them may be closer to a piece of art than a centerpiece of a table, but they are beautiful in their own way all the same.

Here are 30 elegant wedding cake ideas to give you some inspiration.

2. Donut Stack- or Something Like It

Perhaps you’re totally open when it comes to your wedding cake. Maybe you are looking to really do something different than the status quo.

What about a donut stack? A large assortment of artisanal donuts, stacked high to create the same sense of presence that a traditional cake would.

3. Individual Wedding Cakes

Have you thought about going small?

With this option, you save yourself– or your guests– plenty of time cutting the wedding cake. Instead of one big cake, consider individual serving sizes, handed out like a traditional meal.

This alternative to traditional wedding cakes saves time, and can still be individualized enough to show off the aesthetic goals you’ve set for the wedding.

4. Pies

Believe it or not, one of the popular wedding cake alternatives is homemade pies.

While pie is certainly a different dessert altogether, it still can contribute to your wedding

You can do a multi-level pie arrangement, or even 1-2 really big pies. This article contains a few examples of pies, along with some other nontraditional wedding cake ideas that might interest you, too.

Unique Wedding Cakes- It’s Up To You

The truth is, you can’t really lose when you choose unique wedding cakes.

Whether you want to go with a traditional style or a wedding cake alternative, the decision you make will ultimately contribute to the beauty of your special night.

If you’re set on going the nontraditional route, some ideas to get started include an elegant, minimalist wedding cake, a donut stack, individual mini cakes for each guest, or something different altogether like pies.

Work with your local wedding cake shop to find something you love, and don’t be afraid to request something outside the box!
