I don’t like cake….My SO doesn’t like cake. I am having a candy buffett and was thinking about adding cookies or something in there.
Has anyone else opted to skip the cake..and if so what did you do in lieu of?

You definitely don’t have to! Why not do some cupcakes and do a cupcake tower so your guests will still get cake? Then you won’t lose the “cutting the cake” aspect either by adding on a small layer up top.
Just a suggestion, whatever you do is TOTALLY your choice! It’s your wedding! 🙂

You do not have to have cake. It sounds like your candy buffet will take care of people’s sweet teeth. Adding cookies is a great idea!

You could have pie..?
Someone on here had one, it looked delish 🙂 you def don’t HAVE to do cake, but you wouldn’t be able to do the cake cutting ceremony

We are having pie! He doesn’t like cake/cupcakes, and we both really love all kinds of pie…so maybe like a pie buffet

We had multiple kinds of cupcakes on a beautiful wood and glass stand that we made and then lots of cookies and mini cheesecakes. DH and I had a small cake that we cut but it was mainly for show of my toppers.. my sister made it, she worked with a caterer years ago, so she can decorate a Duncan Hines cake to look fancy 🙂

I think I would prefer a candy table! I think they’re so beautiful and unique. Especially the ones with the glass jars. We considered having one, but decided on cake with candy favors. I’m a cake fanatic, though!

You can do as you like, but keep in mind that the food is for your guests, not jsut you and your husband-to-be, so consider some type of dessert perhaps beyond just candy… cupcakes, pie, brownie sundaes, etc. As a guest, I’d personally want a dessert that was better than just a cookie, but that doesn’t by any means mean that you have to have another dessert option.

I don’t think you need to have one! Having any kind of sweet treat would be totally fine.

I have seen a few times a big box made of chocolate and then have lots of truffles inside. cute and different? or maybe have 3 round cheeses layerd up to look like a cake and biscuits on side?

I’m skipping a cake too! Neither of us care or need to have a picture cutting a cake!
I agree! 🙂
