I love seeing how creative vendors get when putting together stands for non-cake wedding cake, how amazing is this cake pop stand!

Croquembouche, just like the macaron, is a french dessert that is trending in the states. It's basically a tower of cream puffs drizzled with caramel or spun sugar, and can be decorated with almonds, fondant cut-outs, or even chocolate. This beautiful treat is a creative idea for a non-cake wedding cake and would look very festive for a Christmas or a winter holiday themed wedding.

Whether you want to replace your wedding cake with these non-cake alternatives or you want to add them along side of it, remember to be quirky and make everyone remember your wedding for all of the amazing details including your non-cake wedding cake! If it's a cookie non-cake wedding cake that you want, go for it and don't worry about what everyone will think when you don't have the traditional wedding cake. This day is about you and your spouse, choose details that speak of who you are and what you like.
