Lots of couples don’t have a traditional wedding cake. I’ve seen some brides even have pies, which is something I considered! I think we’re going with pies and cupcakes. Don’t feel like you MUST have something at your wedding because the Wedding Machine tells you to!

No one is going to notice, ESPECIALLY if you already have a table of goodies to distract ;). I would definitely not worry about it!

We also have a huge dessert buffet… We’re going to get a fake cake for cutting and photos 🙂

nope no one will notice.  We’re also having a dessert buffet and getting a small, one tier cake for cutting and pictures.  But seriously, no one will notice or care with all the other goodies.

You have cakes, if not a wedding cake.

If you want to do the traditional wedding cake, just select the cake that’s easiest to decorate; or put a cake topper and cut it. Or even more fun, do a cake cutting of every cake…

Most of the time when you think about wedding cake you thinka bout the couple cutting the cake, more than what the cake looks like.

I do not miss cake when there’s other dessert.  in fact, given the choice between a dessert table with a selection and only wedding cake, I’d rather the dessert table.

oh, my wedding was cakeless, but with other desserts.  we had cookie stacks as favours that looked like little cakes, and we facetiously cut one as our "cake cutting."

I agree with everyone above and especially with MrsFroggy’s point that the cake-cutting is more central than the cake itself. That is one thing to think about, though – how many traditional-type guests will wonder about that little bit of ceremony? And do you want that? Just something to think about… doesn’t require a real cake, for sure! You can just have a cutting of your one favorite dessert if you decide you want that.

haha! I thought that after I finished my message. You should have, like, 10 cakes… and make your guests’ mouths water as you ceremoniously cut and have photos taken of each and every one of them.

We had a mini cake for us to cut and cupcakes and candy bar for everybody. It worked out really well!

We’re doing the fake cake, small top tier and then cupcakes below.  But our baker said that often times they can’t even put the cake topper on the actual cake because of logistical reasons…so in those cases they display the cake topper near the cake…anyway my point is that if you wanted to still have a cake topper you just mix it in with your pretty dessert table 🙂

 

No cake…no worries!

we had a buffet with only 2 different desserts and no cake at all……not one person even mentioned about us having no cake and there was over 100 guests!

I don’t think anyone will have a problem with a lack of cake! Most people don’t even eat cake anyway at weddings anymore. Dessert bars and cupcakes are very trendy right now. The only people that will notice a lack of cake are maybe more traditional friends/relatives, but I don’t think that’ll take away from their experience at all!
