Take the tiered wedding cake concept a step further. Cover graduated round boxes with coordinated papers or fabrics. Cut holes in the tops, secure, and use as a card-gathering box for the gift table.
Serve a beautifully tiered cake on a silver serving tray. Instead of a groom's cake, have your baker make several small round cakes in a variety of flavors, and display them on a make-it-yourself multilevel cake stand.
If the traditional bride-and-groom cake topper doesn't suit your taste, try fresh flowers. Make sure your florist provides nonpoisonous, pesticide-free flowers.
Traditional Wedgwood china patterns inspired the intricate designs on these elegant blue-fondant cakes displayed on a unique wooden cake stand.
Surprise your groom, maid of honor, grandparents, or favorite aunt with a beautiful handmade card to commemorate the occasion.
