Welcome back to the MG blog for another week of wedding tips, stories and advice.. Around here, we’ve seen our fair share of weddings and events, but It’s always fun to what each one of our couples choose to bring in for their weddings. Every time, something unique comes in that I haven’t seen before, even down the food they serve. in the spirit of uniqueness and personalization, check out these ingenious cake alternatives:

At left: PANCAKES Yup. That’s a pancake cake. If you’re opting for a brunch style wedding or serving breakfast for dinner, this sweet treat will pair perfectly with your menu. With a little syrup drizzled over the top or sprinkled powdered sugar and berries, the cake will be as beautiful to look at as it is to eat!

COOKIES: If you prefer cookies to cake, make a cake out of cookies! Large, flatter cookies mimic the layers of a cake and you can layer them with frosting for an extra sweet bonus.

BROWNIES: Brownies are a simple treat that still feels decadent because of all of the chocolate. An assortment of fruit on top provides a pop of color and a different dash of sweetness in each bite.

DONUTS; Who doesn’t love donuts? Adults and kids alike will be excited to have one at your wedding! It coordinates perfectly with an after dinner coffee bar as well.

ICE CREAM: Instead of the traditional cake and ice cream, give a cold treat with an ice cream cake. A fun idea would be to have an assortment of toppings by the cake so guests could customize their own!

Sweet dreams until next week, Meghan
