Obviously their are cupcakes .. which are almost the norm now at modern weddings .. but I'm looking for really different options!
My first option is a cheese tower. Whats great about these stacked and decorated truckles of cheese is that it essentially becomes your cheese course for your wedding breakfast and its a great option for those people that don't have a sweet tooth. Plus I am a bit of a cheese fanatic!
These cheese cakes below are from the fantastic http://www.westcountrycheese.co.uk/ website.
Another option ... and I hope I'm not causing any confusion here are cheesecakes. The traditional dessert piled up to make a tiered cake. This is great if you want to serve your cake instead of a dessert course .. really practical and, as you're killing two birds with one stone, a brilliant money saver!
These cakes are from http://www.englishcheesecake.com/ .. I'm loving the one with all the profiteroles on top!
My final alternative is probably my favourite ... me and my other half love a good pie, and this company http://www.pieand.co.uk/ make wedding cakes from savoury pies! You can have a traditional three tier number but I really love these alternatives to cupcakes ....
