The traditional wedding cake is hard to pass up; it’s traditional, classy, and generally really pretty. But what about the alternatives? There are just too many options out there to not consider gorgeous mini pies, cupcakes, or brownies. You might not think it’s a good idea to stray from that tradition, but it doesn’t matter to us, it’s what you want that’s most important. With that being said, here are 11 non-traditional dessert ideas that will make you think twice about paying for that expensive white wedding cake.

This incredibly simple tower of doughnuts will surely please your guests. If we’re being honest, who doesn’t love doughnuts? You can make it fit your wedding decorations by placing the doughnuts on this adorable tree stump, or place them on different levels of regular serving platters.

Well first of all, these are super cute, and second of all, these work really well if you are having a smaller wedding or dinner party! Fill your mason jars with pie crust, fruit filling, whipped cream, and top with nuts or chocolate! What do you think of these cute jars?

Strawberry Shortcake Cups

Quick, delicious, and really pretty to look at! We love these, but just make sure your guests don’t eat too many!

Cannoli-Cake Hybrid

Holy cannoli this looks delicious! Step away from the traditional wedding cake with this amazing alternative that is still technically a cake. This is a great option for the bride and groom who love cannolis.

Brownie Wedding Cake

Okay we are craving this cake just looking at it! If you are a brownie or cookie lover, you’ve probably dreamed about this cake. We are going to dream about it tonight. But real talk, this cake consists of mostly brownies and then just a ton of cookies on top; not a difficult thing to make, but definitely a crowd-pleaser!

Cake Pops

Besides these being adorable they are also classy! Your guests will love how easy they are to eat and can continue their conversations and dancing while enjoying these delightful little cake pops.

Chocolate Covered S’mores

We bet you read the word s’mores and immediately dismissed them as not fancy enough for a wedding. But as long as we’re here considering cake alternatives, we’d just like to point out that these are classy as heck. Just look how pretty! And once again, easy to eat, right?

Whoopie Pie Cake Tower

Fan of the classic whoopie pie? Well let’s just make it way bigger, and serve it at your wedding! Creative, and delicious!

Mini Lemon Meringue Pies

We really thought we’d topped the cute scale with the mason jars, but these are somehow even cuter. How could you not choose these for your wedding?

Cookies & Milk

What could be easier than just providing your guests with various milk and cookie options? Think about offering snicker doodles, chocolate chip, and any other favorites! Then provide almond, soy, regular, and chocolate milk as options. We want to try this right now!
