As we continue our black and white theme into Thursday cake day, I must admit I had no idea what I wanted to do.I could have easily just posted a few Black and white cake images and said be inspired…
But that would be to easy… so, instead I searched the WWW and found a few alternatives, make it yourself (or pay someone to do it…) wedding cake ideas.
With so many alternative cake ideas just remember that as a general rule of thumb, individual sized desserts work best as they keep their appearance for longer, like cookies. You could choose traditional varieties: Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin or try some Cupcakes, mini pies, dessert shooters, cake pops, macaroons, whoopee pies etc. These yummy ideas could be anything you want then to be from simple to fancy. Try your hand at some DIY to save a penny or go to the best bakery in town. That is up to you…
This delicious French confections meringue-based cookies filled with ganache or butter cream, not only looks lovely, but taste delicious. They could be served just as or even as macaroon pops. They also make for an amazing cake if placed in tiers on a cake stand creating a more traditional feel.
Oreo Cookies (or any cookie of your choice):
Just like with the Macaroons you could play around with cookie-pops arranged on a cake stand for guest to sample or simply create a cookie tower, you could also add a milk fountain mmm… Dunk it!
Or just some fun cake pops:
Cake pops are delightful little treats that most haven’t tried yet, so they’ll seem incredibly novel to your guest
Donuts: Most people don’t even know how much they love these treats, now can you imagine having three tiers of piled donuts?
You could always go for the tried and tested- a simple, yet potentially decadent treat.
Although I would love to think of these as traditional treats called Ystervarkies from South Africa, Lamingtons originate in Australia. They are available at almost every church bazaar, making this a delicious and really affordable alternative to the traditional wedding cake.
I would love to see the most unusual wedding cakes you have ever seen, so please share.
Happy baking! 😉
