Look no further C utting—or let's be real, smashing—a cake has been a Big Day tradition for generations. But who says you have to stick to the well-worn wedding path? Choose a creative confection (think sundae bars, Popsicles, pretzels) to grace your dessert table and you've infused a bit of tasty fun into the party. We've rounded up our five favorite cake alternatives (or accompaniments if you want to have your cake and eat it, too) to tempt your taste buds. —Lauryn Higgins I M A G E S C O U R T E S Y O F T H E V E N D O R S ( S U G A R & S N O W G E L A T O , S U N S H I N E S A M M I E S ; V O R T E X D O U G H N U T S ) & B Y ( F R E N C H B R O A D C H O C O L A T E S ) K A T R I N A O H S T R O M & ( P O P P Y H A N D - C R A F T E D P O P C O R N ) K A T H Y B E A V E R P H O T O G R A P H Y SUNSHINE SAMMIES (Asheville;; 828/505-2852) Give your guests a throwback taste of childhood with these handmade ice cream sandwiches served straight from "Sunny" the vintage ice cream truck or its as-yet-unnamed umbrella cart offshoot.

Book at least six months in advance— especially if you're saying "I do" in warm weather—as the outfit gets more popular the more temperatures rise.
