1. Say Cheese
Personally I would eat cheese over cake any day so the thought of this layered cheese cake makes my mouth water like crazy (& the edam in the fridge just aint gonna cut it) Add layers of different types of cheese so that everyone finds a little something they like. My pick of the bunch would be Kiwi companies Whitestone Cheese + Talbot Forest Cheese.

2. The coolest cake in town
Double up on dessert and cake with a little artisan icecream. Making them is much easier than you think courtesy of my bestie Martha Stewart and it gives you one less thing to worry about on the day (if you haven’t already eaten them by then!) Yummo.

3. Mini Deserts
The perfect solution for fussy guests these little cakes are the perfect petite dessert and look fantastic. Just beware of the drunken guest who thinks the shot glass cake tower is a game of Jenga!

4. Dark and Gooey
While I respect that a fruit cake with white icing really is the traditional cake of the wedding world, I could guarantee your guests wouldn’t complain if you rocked something dark and gooey. Chocolate and caramel are the perfect pair and propped up on a fancy pants stand, this cake below certainly gets the thumbs up from me!

5. A Slice of Pie
There is something romantic about a freshly baked pie and this alternative wedding cake idea with different sizes and flavours of fruit pie, is perfect for an intimate wedding (and oh so affordable) Team it up with the icecream cake for the perfect summer dessert!
6. Croquembouche (what?)
Until I witnessed some serious cake making disasters on Master Chef, I had no idea this dessert even existed. Made of profiteroles all stuck together with a crazy ass sugar glazing thingie (ok so I am no chef) this dessert looks so ridiculously tasty I am actually craving it for breakfast. My advice? Leave it to the experts!

7. Dunkin (+ possibly drunkin) Doughnuts
You dough-nut have to be a cop to enjoy this sweet treat! These babies are looking more elegant than ever, and your guests will love you for it!
EXTRA IDEA. A Floral Centrepiece
A fantastic idea for those who are forgoing a cake but need a little height on the dessert table. A simple cake stand filled with flowers, this would also make a great idea for table centrepieces. You likey?
