Thinking Outside of the Cake Box

While I was at Epcot this weekend, I was inspired to write this blog. We stopped in France for some pastries and coffee. Mind=blow! If you are looking for a unique way to customize your wedding cake or dessert bar, you have come to the right place! Couples have been straying away from tradition and provide different dessert options for their guests. From cupcake wedding cakes to a full sugar free dessert bar, couples are customizing their selections to reflect their style and personality.

I’m going to touch on 2 of my favorite cultural experiences since I traveled around the world in one day sampling the different tastes of the countries!
An interesting French twist to the traditional wedding cake is not only a taste difference but as an architectural structure. The traditional French Croquembouche contains layers of crème puffs drizzled in caramel that are constructed into a large pyramid. Guests can easily eat their dessert with their fingers and the crème filling will make for fun, and messy, cake smashing! Adding a pastry bar with croissants, macaroons, fruit tarts and crème brûlée will excite the guests and give it an overall French feel.

Italian wedding cake is pretty incredible. White cake, already my favorite, with crushed pineapple, coconut, and pecans all iced in a vanilla buttercream… yum!!! You can have your entire tiered cake as an Italian wedding cake, or, you can choose to have a simple single round for you and your hubby. A cool idea for additional desserts would be having a whole dessert bar full of authentic Italian desserts. Cannoli, tiramisu, and even a cheese board combined with a wine and espresso bar would complete
the Italian cafe theme.

Whether you decide to stick with tradition, or explore your many options, try to reflect your personalities and style in your decisions. It's your day and it should be special to you! If you have any further questions or would like more information about how to customize your menu, please don’t hesitate to send me a message!


  1. Cupcake wedding cake? That sounds like a really cool idea:)

  2. Yes! They are becoming very popular!! They are also inexpensive when compared to a large traditional cake! :)

  3. Hey Alyssa! I found this post to particularly interesting since I'm a dessert person myself. It's a wonder to see how so many amazing things can be made and eaten! I think there should be more advertising for creative dessert makers. There are millions of events around the world that could be made a little more unique with a 7 foot cake or edible flower garden. I think you've brought a great topic to light that an dessert fan should take a look at (especially if they're getting married!). This was a great post! Keep up the good work!
