Gone are the days when a traditional wedding cake was the only sweet centrepiece at a reception. More and more couples are embracing the opportunity to showcase their personality and add a touch of excitement to their wedding celebrations through alternative dessert options! From cupcake towers to donut walls and everything in between, there's a wide array of delectable choices to explore. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at some fun wedding cake alternatives that will delight both you and your guests, making your big day even more memorable.


Cupcake Tower

Although our Culinary Team does not bake these perfect individual treats, we allow outside bakery cupcakes brought in with a service fee. With various flavours, colours, and decorations, a cupcake tower provides a visually appealing and customizable dessert option. Guests can choose their favourite flavours, and you can even personalize each cupcake with monograms or decorative toppers to match your wedding theme.


Donut Wall

For those who love the idea of a sweet and playful display, the ARRAS donut wall is an absolute winner. Imagine an entire wall adorned with a variety of glazed, powdered, and filled donuts! Not only will this wall act as an eye-catching backdrop, but it will also serve as a self-serve treat station. Your guests can pick their favourite donut flavours, ensuring there's something for everyone.


Ice Cream Sundaes

Ice cream sundaes bring a refreshing twist to traditional wedding desserts. Guests can customize their sundaes with hot fudge, sprinkles, nuts, whipped cream, and cherries. This interactive experience will add a playful touch to your wedding and keep everyone cool during warmer seasons.


Charcuterie and Fruit Platters

If you're looking to offer a savoury and refreshing option alongside sweet treats, charcuterie and fruit platters are an excellent choice. A beautifully arranged selection of cured meats, cheeses, bread, and fresh fruits will entice your guests with its elegant presentation and irresistible flavours. This option provides a sophisticated touch and appeals to those with a more refined palate.


Cookie Buffet

Who doesn't love a good cookie? Create a cookie buffet with an assortment of flavours, shapes, and sizes. Offer classic chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodle, and perhaps even some unique options like macarons or homemade biscotti. Place personalized favour bags nearby so guests can create their own take-home treats, ensuring the sweetness extends beyond the reception.


Assorted Pastry Platters

For the couple who appreciates a variety of sweet treats, ARRAS assorted pastry platters are the perfect option. From miniature tarts and chocolate strawberries to bite-sized cakes and bars, you can curate a beautiful assortment that satisfies everyone's cravings!


Candy Shop

Create a whimsical candy wonderland at your reception by setting up a candy shop. Fill jars and containers with a colourful assortment of candies, chocolates, gummies, and lollipops. Provide guests with small bags or boxes to fill with their favourite sweets to take home as wedding favours. A candy shop not only offers a playful and fun atmosphere but also adds a pop of colour to your dessert table.




When it comes to wedding cake alternatives, the options are endless. From cupcake towers and donut walls to ice cream sundaes and charcuterie platters, there's something to suit every couple's taste and style. These unique and fun alternatives provide memorable experiences for your guests while showcasing your personal flair.
