The benefits of an Alternative Wedding cake
- The biggest advantage of going with an alternative wedding cake is cost. Wedding cakes can be expensive and the fancier they get the higher the price. It may not surprise you to know that some wedding cakes can go for 4 figures and upwards. However, the great thing about many of these ideas is that you can do them yourself for a reasonable price.
- There is always way too much cake with a traditional 3 and 4 tier wedding cake you could end up taking it home and then what…
- The wedding cake is all about that impact for your guests and nothing will get their attention more than an Alternative wedding cake something really unexpected.

The styling of this awesome Oreo wedding cake looks fab.
Chocolate Brownie Wedding Stack
This is the perfect DIY wedding cake option. Brownies can be made in advance and stored ready to assemble on the day. This is a brilliant budget wedding cake idea that is also a real head turner. If your not a fan of brownies you can turn most tray bake style treats into a showstopping wedding cake centrepiece.
For those not into the whole DIY finding a really great baker that can deliver a professional set up is a must and we just love this one from the Bayside Baker
