There’s nothing wrong with a little tradition, but when you’re looking to add a little flair to your big day, a standard wedding cake just won’t cut it. An unconventional wedding requires an unconventional cake, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite creative confections that make a memorable finale.
Elegant Naked Berry and Flower Cake
This berry and flower cake is almost too pretty to eat (almost!). Created by Welsh bakery Petal-à-Pot, it perfectly blends floral and fruit for the ultimate showstopping dessert.
While the theme of this wedding was simple and minimal to reflect traditional Finnish design, the layered cake created by Gaggui Kaffela with dripping chocolate was anything but. The mix of fruit such as figs and blackberries with floral (we love the blend of flowers with sprigs of green!) made for a striking dessert.
Red velvet and Honeycomb Cake Dripping with Salted Caramel & Pistachio Toffee
The topping alone on this stunning cake merits celebration, but the combination of flavors is what really makes it stand out: Layered with red velvet, vanilla bean, and honeycomb, Alita O’Brien’s creation is finished off with salted caramel and pistachio toffee for a truly unique flavor.

Black Forest Pavlova With Chocolate Mousse
This dessert is proof that a wedding cake doesn’t actually need to consist of, well, cake. Katelyn Williams’ black forest pavlova includes dark chocolate mousse sandwiched between layers of chocolate-swirled meringue.
Wild Berry Pound Cake with Mascarpone Yogurt Cream
This dark and dramatic-looking cake is every bit as decadent as it looks. The Rusted Ladle’s wild berry pound cake is a bolder take on regular pound cake, and uses mascarpone yogurt creme as a great alternative to frosting.
