Don't like wedding cake - doing a brownie sundae bar
Posted 29 July 2009 - 01:33 AM
My mom about died when I said I didn't want a wedding cake. "But you HAVE to have a wedding cake! What will people think? You will disappoint so many people. I always look forward to the wedding cake!" (She can be a bit extreme sometimes.)
I just think that since I'm having a non-traditional wedding, that I don't need to do things just because they are "tradition." And since I don't care much for cake, I think this is a much better idea.
I'm thinking about having a brownie sundae bar set up with all of the above mentioned items (maybe also some nuts) and letting the guests serve themselves however they like their brownie sundae,
Has anyone done anything like this or another non-traditional dessert in lieu of the wedding cake? Were any guests disappointed? Did you feel like you missed out on a right of passage (cutting the wedding cake)?
... Maybe instead of cutting the cake, we'll have a "scooping of the ice cream" moment/picture.

Now along with that we also had chocolate covered strawberries (white and milk chocolate), mexican wedding cookies, along with choco chip, white choco macadamian, and oatmeal cookies -- so it was a spread of desserts that allowed for everyone to have a choice.
You can certainly do a variety of desserts or just pick the one you LOVE -- do what you want, if you dont care for cake, don't feel like you have to do it. Brownies would be so much fun! And if your family is pressing for a cake how about just a small one for pictures?

I would just make sure that no one has allergies (especially to nuts) because with buffet type meals, things always get mixed up with the other foods. Other than that, I think it sounds great. It's your wedding, do what you want!

As for your mom, tell her that you value her opinion, but that it's important to you that you actually LIKE your dessert and you're not going to choke down yucky cake just for tradition's sake.
