The first time I heard of anything other than a cake, or a cupcake cake, was when I worked on a wedding two years ago. The bride loved pie (just as much as I love cake) and she figured why did she have to have a cake just because people thought she had....and you know what? She was right! She had cake plates of varying heights with individual blue berry and lemon meringue pies.

My husband is French and a traditional cake for them is a croquembouche (translated to "crunch in the mouth") They are little balls of pastry filled with cream and then, usually, spun sugar is draped all over it (really, it can't be wrong!)......this one from Martha Stewart is lovely!

Have you been to a wedding where they didn't have a traditional wedding cake? What did you eat (or serve)? Because "let them eat cake" is so last century!
