    I am personally more traditional, so I wouldn’t choose it for myself, but I wouldn’t think badly about it if I went to a wedding with a donut cake (as long as it looks classy).  Will you have a variety of flavors?  Just because I’m sure you’ll have vegetarians and others who don’t eat pork.

    You could always have a “donut ripping ceremony” or something if you don’t want to get a cake just for the cutting.  You and your husband could pull one in half and feed it to each other.

    Personally, as a guest, I wouldn’t care. Out of curiousity, is this a daytime or evening wedding? A donut cake wold be so cute for a brunch wedding! Either way, I think it will be fine as long as you love it.

    As a guest I would LOVE a donut for wedding cake. It is so fun. I think you’d get a lot of compliments from guests on this as I have never heard of this topic before coming to the bee.

    I think it would be great fun. I’d rather have a donut than a piece of cake anyday.

    If you want to do a traditional cake cutting, you can easily get a cake stand that can accomodate a small cake.

    Donut wedding cake!  I'm soooo suggesting this.  Someone out there has to love Krispy Kreme as much as me.

    Mmmm yes please! I love donuts!

    ETA: Now I want a donut REAL bad. If the bakery by my apartment was still open I would be heading over there right now.

    ronnie.gleed:  We had a donut cake at our engagement party and my god I have never seen people love a cake like they loved those donuts lol we also had a cute little bunting sticking out the top with ‘*my name* (love heart) *Fi’s name*’.

    Honestly I think people loved it way more than a traditional cake, we had SO many donuts and I was sure we’d end up with a tonne of leftovers.. but not a single donut was left by the end of the night!

    I say go for it (i’d do it again if we hadn’t already!). And I think the idea of a single layer on top is cute if you want something to cut!
