Is a Traditional Wedding Cake Right for You?

Just because it is almost mandatory to serve your guests with dessert, it doesn’t mean that you have to serve them with a  traditional wedding cake too. Is a traditional wedding cake right for you? How to decide what type of dessert you should serve your guests with? Read on and find out more.


  • Remember, this is YOUR Big Day and nobody in the world should be allowed you make you do something you don’t want to. If you don’t want a traditional wedding cake, that’s perfectly fine. Even more, if you simply want a cocktail party for your wedding and you don’t want to serve dessert, that’s perfectly fine too.
  • Decide on what type of wedding you want to have. Although these days everything is allowed and you can make the “craziest” combinations, a more traditional wedding may look better with a more traditional wedding cake too. However, as mentioned before, nothing is mandatory.
  • Traditional wedding cakes can be replaced by many other desserts: pies, naked cakes (cakes without actual frosting that are usually decorated with sugar, syrup, flowers and/or fruit) and even more non-conventional desserts (such as donut towers) will work just fine.
  • Even more, if you want to save some money or if you want to avoid having a melting cake on a hot summer day, you can always go for the “fake cake” option too. These cakes imitate real cakes to perfection, but they are cheaper and they keep better even at the highest temperatures. When the time comes to serve your guests with cake, you can ask the waiters to bring them slices of a less expensive (but equally delicious) cake that has been kept cool in the kitchen.

No matter what type of wedding cake or dessert you may choose for your wedding, rest assured that it will look wonderful in the “background” provided by The Mackey House.
