We have decided not to have a wedding cake. Neither of us eat it and when we looked up the reason behind why you have it we decided not for us but people keeping going on about we should for pictures etc! What are people's thoughts?
Cheese cake x
Just do what you want :) I'm tempted by the cheese ones!!
speak to ur venue some may supply a fake cake for photo purposes
You can buy false cakes for cutting but they're about the same price. What about a small cake and then cupcakes or fruit platters, cheese rounds or similar for guests instead x
If you're not going to eat it, i wouldn't bother! It's YOUR day, not other people's, do what you're happy & comfortable with. We're having a completely untraditional wedding cuz we wouldn't want half of it xx
buy small cup cakes and give each guess one
We are aving cupcakes instead and not aving desserts on our meal xxx
I'm having a crispy creme donut cake. Not sure how itll work for cutting the cake but will be yummy
It's your wedding, your decision x
We will be having a profiterole tower instead as my other half doesn't eat cake although I would like just a small sponge cake for cutting and I love cake
We had a ginger bread house :-) you can have what you like, its your day. Ive seen pictures of people who have had a tower of burgers, you dont have to have a picture of a cake x
why dont you do a dummy cake or get someone to make you one out of card it gives you a memory box and if you do a 3 tier one you have favor boxes for guests
What's the reason behind why you have one?
If your more into savoury stuff you can have a lie. Someone I know had 3 giant pies, one pork, one game and can't remember the other but it looked fantastic!
We're not having a wedding cake! I didn't want to stand in front of everyone doing the cutting the cake as I just would have felt awkward. Plus at other weddings we've been too it seems to get wasted. We might just have some cupcakes out with the evening buffet. X
Someone i know had cheese and crackers and still got good pics. X
You do what you want it's your day and it's up to you what you want it's your wedding if they thought that much of you then they wouldn't mind !
Its completely your decision. but there are other alternatives? you could have ones made of cheese if you're savoury people?
what about cupcakes? you can serve them and they'll disappear quick im sure!
or perhaps you can have foam cakes. they are discs of foam tiered and decorated to look like a real one.
But, if you really dont want one, then you really don't have to!
My sister had a cheese wedding cake - it was brilliant - base cheddar / middle - Stilton and top Brie - they had their photos cutting the wedding cheese cake, and then it was cheese (from the cake) with crackers and pickles and coffee instead of a pudding
We're having a donut cake, your day... your choice! Xx
It's your wedding. Cakes are not cheap so why spend all that money on something neither of you are even bothered about?
We are the same, but we are having a brownie tower which we can use for pictures and then it doubles up as a sweet treat for the evening guests :D. Much cheaper than a cake as well but still looks great.
We had a Krispy Kreme doughnut tower and it went down really well
We're not having a cake either. Easy way to save a few hundred quid! I couldn't care less what other people think! I personally don't see the point of the cutting of the cake photo anyway! If it means that much to people get them to buy the bloody cake!! 🤣 stick to your guns! I've never really
Enjoyed the cakes I've received at other weddings and a lot goes to waste so I'm sure ppl will be happy with the food we are providing, who needs two desserts anyway! X
If you don't want a cake, don't have one. Other people need to remember who's wedding it is. Enjoy your day the way you want it
We are thinking about having a profiterole tower which will then be served with our evening barbecue. But if you don't want one then don't bother!
You don't need cake! We had a three tier pork pie!
We are just having sponge cake made with diff fillings
We didnt have one either as neither me or the husband dont eat it.its not what about other people think its ur day u have what u want
do what you want (or not as the case may be!) It's your wedding.
We get married next month and I'm actually a baker and I know a lot of cake is wasted at all weddings. I'm actually making my cake but it's all fake dummy cakes. More to say I did my own wedding cake but without having to waste cake as I know it won't be eaten really. I'm going to do a couple of 6" sponges for people to have if they wish but I'm not fussed on eating cake. On a note though don't expect that dummy cake is cheaper as in reality it isn't as the dummy itself can cost pretty much the same price as a sponge. If you don't want cake don't. It's your choice. Best of luck.
Get a stack of different cheese and decorate it
There are cake alternatives
You could have a cheese cake? They look ace x
Wedding pie :)
Do-nut tower! Put it together myself
Didn't 'cut it' or anything, just had it there for people to take one on the evening with the buffet. Out of 160 do-nuts, just 4 were left! It was a hit
Do what you want. Your wedding
Pizza tree! / Marshmallow mountain
You can have cheese!!anyway it's your wedding do what ever you want to do
I loved our cake, but everyone needs to have what they want x
You can get a display cake instead. They're polystyrene but decorated however suits your theme.
Good luck! X
I didn't have a cake. I didn't see the point in spending all that money for a photo prop. X
We have decided to have a cheeses and artisan pork pie cake which will then form part of the evening food
Why don't you have something cute that you both like? When is your wedding? If it's likely to be warm weather you could have a make your own sundae bar for dessert and then have cute photos of your new Hubby and yourself making your sundaes? Putting cherry on top of each other's etc? Just an idea. But definitely don't have a cake for everyone else's benefit, if you don't want it, don't have it, it's your big day xx
This was our cake!!! We love Krispy Kreme doughnuts!!! 🤗🤗
We didn't have a cake either. It's your day, your decision. Break with tradition!
Do what you want it's your day. Could always get a small one for photos x
It's your wedding so do whatever you two want
Do what you want x
It's your day but if it's really bothering you buy a cupcake
If you don't want one don't have one it's your wedding .. I think sometimes people need to keep there opinions to themselves
Have whatever you want. Something nice would be good as a centrepiece but you could have other things such as cup cake tower, cheese tower, doughnut tower, brownie tower etc. I don't like wedding cake either so we're having fairy cake tower. Every guest gets a fairy cake to take home. If you want a cake though that doesn't break the bank just get a one layer one to cut for photos etc
It's completely up to you. It's your wedding. We are having cupcakes because I absolutely hate fondant icing
It's your day so I would just go with what you both want not what everyone else says
Make a polystyrene one! Get cracking photos still but no cake and cheap as chips to make xx
If you dont eat wedding cake you could always have like a large gateux or a donut tower its your wedding day got to have have some sort of cake this is a once in a life time thing enjoy it
Www.thecakebox.com do different fillings for cakes a 3 tier for only 60 quid but its your day so your choice
I personally could not have not had a cake, but if your not big on cake then its money saved!
The cupcake idea is good. If you do not like cheese and other savoury ideas I have seen shot glasses on tiers. Two at the top etc and everyone has a drink to the bride and groom
Just ice some polystyrene cake tiers and voila a wedding cake!! Probably cost you 20 quid
