There are lots of reasons why you might choose to opt out of having a wedding cake – you might want a more seasonal nod instead, perhaps a whole dessert table, maybe you have a penchant for french fancies or your wedding day just wouldn’t be complete without your Mama’s Pavlova!

Whatever your decision, there are so many beautiful alternatives and we’ve gathered some gorgeous inspiration for you to devour this Sunday. From autumnal pies, elegant french Macarons & the lustworthy Croquembouche to gooey brownies and doughnut towers!

I’m licking my lips already…

Oh and remember, if you spot something you love below scroll the credits to discover the original feature from some of the best wedding blogs in the world!

YUM!

My husband was a total traditionalist and desperately wanted a cake on our big day. So that’s what we had. But, lo and behold it was a delicious Croquembouche he sampled at a beautiful event at Fetcham Park that made him consider the alternative. In fact, the sweet treat created by Papillon Patisserie “changed his life”.

That’s an actual quote from my boy. He takes his desserts very seriously.

So would you consider the alternative…?
