Non Traditional Wedding Cakes

So many brides tell me they don’t really like the taste of cake but want a cake for tradition’s sake. Well, why not have a wedding “cake” that isn’t made out of cake? Choose a sweet that you love and find a way to make it your wedding cake.   Not only will it be something you like to eat but guests will love that it is something different and personal to both of you!  Here are some of our favorite non traditional cake ideas!

Do you like cheesecake better than cake?  Cheesecake doesn’t stack like a traditional cake but find a creative cake stand to give the stacked look!

Chevron Wedding Cakes

I am in love with everything Chevron!  The Chevron pattern, similar to a zig-zag pattern,  is being used everywhere in home design and now showing up in weddings for 2012! From stationary and programs to being the design for wedding cakes, the chevron pattern is a modern, fun design that looks great in any color.  I like the idea of incorporating the chevron pattern in little ways in to a wedding.  The cake is a great place to use the chevron to add dimension or to add a splash of color!  Here are some great examples of wedding cakes that have the chevron design!

Many brides are choosing a white or ivory base for the cake color and adding a chevron pattern to only one layer and embellishing with fondant flowers.  Simple yet modern design!

If you are looking to have a cake with more color and design I like the idea of using thicker tiers with multiple colors used in the chevron pattern.

Or you can use a different pattern on each tier (swiss dots, chevron, ruffles, etc.) like below!

How beautiful is this ombre and chevron patterned cake?

Charm City Cakes recently made a cake using the chevron pattern that is absolutely stunning. I love the use of color and pattern on each tier!

We would love to hear your thoughts on these chevron wedding cakes!  Are you using a chevron pattern at your wedding?

We want to hear about it!

Happy Planning!
