Hi DIY babes, it’s Lauren from I Love Love Events feeling very hungry as I put this fabulous post together. Today I am sharing 15 amazing alternatives to traditional wedding cake. This trend has been building for a while, for several years, we saw lots and lots of cupcakes, and the dessert de jour is donuts. But the fantastic thing is that ANYTHING goes in the dessert arena these days and this is great news for the DIY bride. Below are several options that you could put together yourself, save a few pennies and in some cases, not even turn on the oven (hello Oreos and Krispy Kremes!). The world of weddings is giving permission to forego the over priced cake in favor of something more creative, more personal and perhaps in theme with the venue, here are a few fabulous ideas!
