5 Amazing Untraditional Wedding Cakes

Since then, I've seen other interesting untraditional wedding cakes at friends' celebrations.

From: Good Housekeeping

I adore a beautiful tiered white wedding cake, but I also love cool, surprising twists on this iconic dessert. The first one I distinctly remember came from a Town & Country magazine story 15 years ago. It was an elegant cupcake tower with a forest theme served at a Napa Valley wedding reception held under a giant oak tree. Since then, I've seen other interesting untraditional wedding cakes at friends' celebrations. Here are 5 of my favorites:

1. Macarons

What's not to love about these delicate French cookies? I was blown away by this gorgeous conical confection at my friends' wedding. I'd seen similar displays in Parisian pastry shops, but it looks even prettier at a wedding.

 2. Dark, Dark Chocolate

A friend of mine hired a Swiss chocolate master to create a five-tiered square wedding cake. The chocolate shell was a deep, dark brown and the ivory white chocolate accents echoed the designs on her gown. Very graphic, dramatic, and delicious.


3. Doughnuts: 

The bride opted for a classic white cake, but the groom insisted on doughnuts. Their caterer arranged a wide variety of flavors into a tall pyramid. They tasted great with coffee and kept the formal wedding fun.

4. Bread Pudding

My college roommate has always loved bread pudding, so she chose it for her wedding reception. Small classic white ramekins were artfully stacked and the bride and groom cut into a big one for photos.

5. Cookies

A Pittsburg pal had a huge cookie table at her wedding. Guests brought homemade favorites and the result was a lovely long table piled with platters of American favorites. It was such a great celebration of family and friends.

What are some of the coolest wedding cakes you've ever seen?
