These days, weddings are so not cookie-cutter. When it comes to today’s brides, anything goes. And that includes ditching the wedding cake and giving your guests other sweet treats instead. Dessert stations seem a bit passe so instead of giving your guests everything-but-the-kitchen-sink to choose from, find one (or two) favorite sweet treats and make that your dessert of choice. You can have a help-yourself table or bar. Or have waiters pass them around. Or you can even rent a food truck—great for ice cream, crepes, cupcakes, and more.

Want to have your cake and eat it too? No problem—go for a small two-tiered wedding cake so you get those cake cutting pictures in (no regrets, right?) and ask your day-of wedding planner to be sure a few dozen slices are put out for the older crowd to enjoy with their coffee (no one needs to be displeasing grandma on their wedding day). But turn the majority of your guests’ attention away from the frosting and onto other tasty fabulousness. Here are 10 great cake alternatives.
