As you and your fiancée are checking things off your wedding planning list, do you get stuck at the wedding cake? If one or both of you aren’t fans of cake, do you have to serve it at your wedding? In short, the answer is no. Oaks Manor has some suggestions for great alternatives to a traditional wedding cake that will leave your guests asking for seconds! Note that while some of these say “cake” in their names, they are not cakes at all.

Macaron Cake
