It seems that today, more and more couples are saying they just don't like cake and don't want it at their wedding solely due to tradition. I have gathered several alternative ideas for those who feel the same. If you still want to stick with cake, try mini-cakes/individual cakes (if you can afford that!) or cupcakes - cupcakes are now being arranged on tiers to look like a cake or having the top tier be a small cake just for the tradition of the couple cutting the cake." Some couples have chosen to have candy or cookie bars, where guests can select their own variety of sweets to enjoy, while others preferred to have ice cream either in mini cups or cones.
