I’ve seen many couples stray from the traditional tier cake over the years. This is DEFINITELY not to say that this traditional option is not wonderful. The tier cake is a beautiful tradition. However, this trend away from the traditional cake is a trend that reflects the plurality of choices within weddings today. We are so fortunate to live in a time to explore new traditions that feel compatible with your own relationship and union, so here are some options:
1. Cupcakes – a classic and practical take on a wedding cake!
Arrange them in the shape of a wedding cake, or however you want! Bonus: choose from different flavors. Contact Destination Maine Weddings for the best bakeries to make this a reality.
Who doesn’t love a good donut? There are so many different flavors and textures to choose from. Luckily, Maine happens to have one of the most fantastic places for donuts – The Holy Donut. The Holy Donut’s founder came to the famous recipe using fresh Maine potatoes after wanting to create a delicious donut with fresh ingredients that one could feel good about eating. And good they are! Choose between their most popular sea salt flavor or other’s such as the maple
bacon. Visit https://theholydonut.com for more information!
3. Maine Style Desserts
There are some particular desserts that will cater to the essential authentic Maine experience. The three most notable are Whoopie Pies, Blueberry Pie, and S’mores. You can get inventive with all of these – small whoopie pies, big whoopie pies, vanilla whoopie pies or peanut butter whoopie pies. Mini blueberry pies or those by the slice with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream! And s’mores are always a great addition to any wedding with a bonfire!
4. Ice cream Sundaes
Ice cream sundae bars are becoming one of the fastest growing wedding trends. It’s especially refreshing on hot summer days for your wedding, where a variety of flavors and toppings are provided for each guest to customize their ideal treat.
5. Cake Pops
Cake pops are a great alternative to a large cake, where sometimes, much of it can go uneaten depending on the size of the cake and your guest list. You can choose from a variety of flavors and colors that can match your wedding colors. I’ve seen
adorable decorations such as a “bride and groom” cake pop on top, and those on the bottom that complement the colors and themes of the wedding. With this option, there are infinite possibilities!
