We are doing cheese cake. I am either going to have each layer be a different flavor or just do it all plain and have a topping buffet.

We were seriously considering doing a cheesecake (I love love love cheesecake) and we found a place that does amazing cheesecakes but our reception venue said they would throw in a buttercream cake for free if we had our reception there so we changed plans. But I would definitely do a cheesecake!

Do whatever you both love. We didn’t have cake either. We had pies – all 14 of which were hand-baked (crust and all) by my partner the day before the wedding. He also spent two days before the wedding making 508 candied, chocolate-dipped orange peels for our favors. We also incorporated our guests in the fun. In the months leading up to our wedding, we had them vote for their favorite pies on our website, and then he baked the most popular choices. By the time people got to the wedding, they were super excited to see if their pie choice made the cut. It was really fun. The bottom line, though, is that you should make it reflective of what you both love and just go with it. Don’t be pressured into doing a cake if that’s not what you like, think outside the box, and – most importantly – have fun!

Aw I love Fall in Boston’s idea! You could do the same thing with flavored cheesecake or toppings 🙂

There’s plenty of options besides cake! Cheesecake is always good. You could also do croquembouche, creme broulee, mini-chocolate lava cakes (still cake but ooey-good!), a sundae bar, tiramisu.

We actually didn’t do the first slice moment, not because it would be impossible with pies, but because we didn’t really do much that was traditional at all. HOWEVER, I think you easily could do it with pie. And it might be even more fun…sort of a play off the pie-in-the-face sort of thing!

 

My favorite part of the whole thing was that it demonstrated to everyone that this was a team event – not just about the bride – and my husband got his props for the day too. But the website was really fun. It became a sort of competitive contest among guests to see if their pie choice would make it.

Ok this idea may not appeal to you as you want something sweet, but heaps of brides are now having Cheese Cakes not ‘cheesecakes’ but cheese assmbled so that it looks like a cake. I have noticed that this seems to be really popular in the UK and Aus.

My parents had wedding brownies, haha. They were ridiculous, though, a huge thing of sheet brownies with Star Trek characters painted on the frosting. It was my mom’s gift to my dad, and totally them… they are so funny.

I love the idea of pies, and we are considering seeing what the Cheesecake Factory can do with their Red Velvet Cheesecake. 

Even if you cut, for instance, a piece of a pie, wouldn’t it kind of work? You’d probably have to use a fork, but it’d still be super cute.

I love the cheesecake bar idea, I think I might be doing that as well and have fresh fruit and all kinds of different toppings and maybe different kinds of cheesecake. sounds so yummy.

I like the Cheese Cake pictures above, that is really original.

@simpleandchic: that cheese cake, the second one, is lovely! It really does look like a real cake at first glance. Like for a rustic wedding.

You could always get a small cake just for the purpose of feeding eachother the first bite if you wanted. But there are so many other options out there!

This “cake” was made from macarons…yum! and so colorful!

and here one is made with chocolate covered strawberries! Who doesn’t love them?
