5 alternative wedding cakes for couples who want something different

Alternative wedding cakes

While a traditional wedding cake will never go out of fashion, some couples prefer to go a little bit off piste for their big day. Whether it's different flavours, designs or just avoiding anything sweet, there are lots of different options that will make for great wedding cakes. 

We've trawled Instagram to find some of our favourite alternative wedding cakes to hopefully inspire your big day treat...

The cake that's made out of cheese

Yep, if you're mad for cheese, why not have a cake made out of cheese? In fact, this one by West Country Cheese, mixes cheese with layers of pork pie. Could it get any better?


The cake that's also a dessert

When is your wedding cake also the perfect dessert? When it's a croquembouche that's when. The traditional French dessert, made from choux puff pastry and filled with crème pâtissière, looks super stylish when towered up high. 


The cake that harks back to your childhood

Did you love Jammy Dodgers when you were little? Or perhaps French Fancies were you thing? Then get giant versions of them made into your wedding day cake - a great alternative that will also get all the guests talking!


The cake that's a sign of your heritage

We love this wedding cake made of Welsh Cakes, a great nod to the couple's heritage. This could also work well with other traditional sweet treats such as eccles cakes, Dundee cake or scones!


The cake that looks too pretty to eat

Macarons aren't only delicious, they also look amazing - especially when a whole host of them are arranged in beautiful pastel layers. True art, that tastes as good as it looks.
