Alternative is up to our customers. You tell us what you are after and we’ll make it happen

Dessert tables are very popular now, where you can have mini cakes, dessert glasses, macarons, chocolates etc so people can pick and choose what they'd like to eat if you're not a big cake fan.

Also for fans of cheese having muptiple tiered wheels of cheese stacked and decorated with flowers and twine on an antipasto grazing table can be an amazing way for a couple who aren't sweet tooths to have something like looks like a cake and they can cut into but then enjoy a cheese platter after rather than cake.

Hello there,

The choices are limitless for you and it would depend on whether you prefer something sweet such as cupcakes with a theme.

Sweet Choices

For example, you may like to consider a theme including any of the following:

*  Peacock made of fondant on a small cake and its feathers cascading down in the form of cupcakes with the colour scheme of your choice

* A French croquembouche filled with Coffee and Kahlua Creme Patisserie and adorned with Spun Sugar and Or Petite Mini Flowers

* A Tower of macaroons with your favourite flavours

* A Tower of Chantilly Meringues filled With Raspberry Flavoured Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Cupcake Wedding Theme:

* The top tier would be a small cake with the names of the bride and groom and elegant display of flowers matching the bride's bouquet.

The lower tiers would be beautifully decorated oval-shaped fondant plaques covering the cupcakes with the names of each of the guests in colours that would compliment the wedding theme

Chocolate Fountain: 

* Have the fruits/marshmallows arranged aesthetically on tiered serving platters around the chocolate fountain

Weird and Wonderful:

A theme set in the trend and colours of your favourite hobby/interests/sport that could be replicated in fondant etc


* Wheels of Cheese with fresh flowers /Fruit set in a tier shape

* Fruit Platters (this would depend on the month you were getting married as you would want the freshest seasonal fruit)

I hope this is helpful for you and please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further suggestions.

With kind regards
