Alternative Wedding Cakes

When it comes to Weddings, we are always striving for something totally unique and unforgettable; and many people are now looking for a little twist on the traditional wedding cake. Alternative wedding cakes have soon become a phenomenon, and so we have put together our favourites!

Pork Pie Wedding Cake

This isn’t just a twist on a wedding cake – this is totally different! From sweet to savoury, why not offer your guests a slice of pork pie instead of your usual cake? Marks and Spencer offer this gorgeous 3 tier Pork Pie Wedding Cake for £99, serving 30-40 people. We are sure this will not go a miss on your special day…
