The pièce de résistance of the reception is simple: the wedding cake. Everyone will be ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the beautiful fondant, tasty strawberry filling or the spongy, marbled cake. But let’s be real—everyone won’t be satisfied. An aunt will happen to be allergic to vanilla or those distant cousins will be unnaturally picky. To accommodate the persnickety eaters of your guest list, try having a cake fondue as a delicious dessert alternative.

What is cake fondue? The best self-tailored cake option ever.


Have a bowl or display of plain, regular-sized or mini cupcakes. Of course, icing will be needed to dip the cupcakes in—what is fondue without dipping? Then comes the toppings. Lots and lots of toppings. Sprinkles, chocolate chips, mini candy, fruit, nuts, chocolate sauce … the list goes on. This simple dish will be sure to satisfy everyone at the party.
