Wedding Donut Ideas

Wedding Donut Ideas.

Would you rather eat donuts than cake at your reception? Since 2016, it seems more and more couples agree. This sweet alternative to traditional cake has gained a lot of traction and lends itself to infinite tasty possibilities. From towers to flowers, there’s a way to make donuts a part of your celebration.

Flavor is key. Because any good donut shop offers assorted flavors (and who doesn’t love choices) you can display your favorites on a small cake stand with an added floral touch. How delicious does that dripped icing look?


Donuts can be elegant, too! Grab a pretty pastel cake stand, stack some sprinkle donuts in your wedding colors and add small toppers to tie in your wedding style.


Instead of a tiered wedding cake, create a tiered donut stand. A natural wooden stand plays host to an array of flavors that entice guests to pick the donut (or two!) of their choice.


For a more classic look on the donut tower, a white cake stand is the perfect way to present glazed, powdered, coconut and chocolate-covered donuts on your dessert table. Just like any great wedding cake, small white flowers embellish each tier.


For those craving a wedding cake alternative, a donut is a great choice. These crowd-pleasers will be the talk of your reception and will make for great photo ops, too. Do-nut think for one second you and your guests won’t love them.
