Life is too short for boring desserts, amirite? You deserve to have wedding desserts that speak to your individuality as a couple and that are just as sweet as your unique love. While traditional wedding cakes are stunning, desserts are the perfect way to show off your creativity and to really give your guests something to remember. If you are looking for some fun non-traditional wedding dessert inspiration, you’ve truly come to the right place. Check out 5 of our favorite non-traditional wedding desserts crafted or photographed by an array of Cheers MT wedding vendors!
1. Painted Cakes
When it comes to wedding cakes, there is certainly no shortage of beautiful designs. One of our favorite non-traditional wedding cake designs is undeniably painted cakes! If you are looking for a simple way to add visual interest to your wedding dessert table, painted cakes might just be the ideal fit for you! These beautiful cakes are typically designed using buttercream, and a variety of palette knives and piping tips that allow your baker to mimic the style of an oil painting, and oh boy does this technique pay off!
We are head over heels for this stunning painted cake designed by Cheers MT Vendor, Katies Cakes! With beautiful pops of turquoise and navy blue, this cake is both distinctive and simplistic! Swoon!

2. Macaron Towers
There is no denying that classic wedding cakes are timeless and beautiful, however, if you’re looking for an out-of-the-box dessert option, we love macaron towers! Both elegant and sophisticated, macaron towers are able to add a touch of French influence to your big day – hello victorian wedding inspiration! These delicious bite-sized desserts are able to effortlessly add to the visual interest of any dessert table, and are truly an inviting addition!
We are loving this romantic macaron display. The pastel shades incorporated in this design truly add to the lovely-Dovey vibe of this stunning styled shoot!

5. Donut Displays
Donut walls and displays are debatably one of our very favorite ideas for non-traditional wedding desserts. This trend has become highly prominent as brides across the country are ditching the classic white wedding cake and substituting it with an arrangement of delicious donuts. Here at Cheers MT, we are totally on board with the donut wall trend. Not only are these yummy treats affordable, but they are easy to serve, and are highly customizable (i.e. various shapes, flavors, and icings). Not in the mood to DIY your own donut board?
