Top Wedding Cake Alternatives: No Cake, No Problem!

I have never been a huge fan of cake, so it came as no surprise to my friends and family when I served pies and cupcakes at my wedding reception.  Many couples today are opting for more non-traditional options as a post nuptials treat.  Here are just a few of my favs.

Cupcakes have become a popular cake substitution.  They're small and an assortment of flavor offerings keeps them a "go-to" for couples looking to break out of the mold of the multi-tiered cake.
