4. An Oreo cake

(Below) “It seems like about half my couples are choosing cupcakes or something other than the traditional wedding cake. In this case, neither the bride nor groom liked cake. Both of them also work in restaurants in the Boulder area. The the bride used her experience and creativity to create this Oreo stacked ‘cake’. When it was time to cut the cake, they simply fed each other an Oreo cookie from the cake, and chased it down with glasses of milk.”

One last note from Phillip Blume of Blume Photography:

“We see so many fun cake alternatives these days, too — cupcake towers, donut platters, giant dessert sampler spreads, or platters of comforting cookies and milk. I especially love the stories behind certain comfort foods like cookies, which tell you so much more about human relationships.”
