Non-Traditional Wedding Cakes

Just because your wedding might be following a traditional sequence of events doesn’t mean your wedding cake has to be traditional. In the vast array of dessert options out there, it is easy to get overwhelmed: tiered cakes, cupcakes, cookie tables, pies… how do you know which kind is really you? This couple opted for a themed wedding cake that sported miniature versions of themselves fighting off mutant insects and dangerous dragons. It was a tremendous hit (and delicious to boot!), and had guests lining up to photograph it in its splendor.

If you’re planning on having a professional create a custom cake for you, start planning early (six months is the recommended timeline). Like many wedding professionals, popular vendors book up quickly for the upcoming season! This extraordinary creation was made by Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA.
