There’s something so simple and beautiful about a delicate tower of eclairs. Add in fresh summer florals and it’s wedding ready.

If you asked us, this floral take on the classic French croquembouche trumps just about any other wedding cake. 

Indigo Rose Cakes’s scone cake is a serious game-changer. Filtered with berries and a healthy dusting of powdered sugar, the end result is a real show-stopper.

If you’re looking for alternatives to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite, out-of-the-cake-box, confections for the big day.

Alternate a stack of cannolis in between layers of fresh flowers on a multi-tiered platter for an elegant treat.

Nix the knives and forgo the forks. We love the look of paper cones filled with donut holes. Display these treats by the dance floor using a vintage wire rack.

We love this idea for a rustic-themed soiree. Serve small mason jars brimming with delicious strawberry shortcake for guest to dig into.

Set up a dessert bar featuring mini pies in a variety of mouth-watering flavors. Use a chalkboard to let guests know what their options are. Pies not your dessert of choice? Use this idea with cookies, whoopie pies, or sundae toppings.

Sick of sweets? Opt for full wheels of your favorite frommages instead. Garnish with flowers or fresh fruit for a totally unique take on dessert.

A loaded platter of crispy Belgian waffles is the unexpected treat that is sure to please. Serve with a pitcher of warm syrup and fresh fruit toppings.

This old-school favorite deserves its proper place on your dessert table. Stack them high on a cake plate and adorn with roses, fruits, or a generous dusting of powdered sugar.

A large stack of flapjacks are a delicious addition to a daytime fete. Sprinkle with sugar and serve with a side of melted butter.

The naked cake is all the rage. Frost in between each layer, keeping the exterior delightfully exposed, save for a few sprigs of your favorite florals.

Sometimes a slice of cake seems so passé. Instead, group color-coded cake pops together for easy nibbling.
