When it comes to wedding cake alternatives, everything from milk and cookie buffets to pies to balls of smooshed up cake and icing has gotten that precious 15 minutes of fame we all covet. Where do you go after tiered stacks of doughnuts? Wedding cupcakes are so over… kidding, cupcakes will never die, but still. How about the Hostess wedding “cake” that was suddenly everywhere five years ago? The sundae bar has been done. Cookies, check. Mousse? Check. So where do brides and grooms who are looking for wedding cake alternatives go from here, anyway?
According to one source, the next big thing in wedding cake alternatives is… CakeShooters.
The nice thing about CakeShooters is that they can be shipped anywhere in the U.S., so you don’t have to wait for a retail location to open up near you if you are simply lusting after this particular wedding cake alternative. And there are vegan and gluten-free options, too. The not so nice thing, at least as I see it, is that the CakeShooter, true to its name, is a wee tiny little mouthful of cake that costs $3 a pop. I could down about 30 of them, judging by my past experiences with wedding cake, so if you’re a big cake fan, you may want to opt for some other form of cake kitsch. Then there’s how silly people look eating them, which is neither here nor there.
My verdict? Better for a kid’s party than a wedding.
