You can change a cake's color, shape, size or consistency, but it's still going to taste like, well, cake. Give your guests a real taste of your wild side by choosing a completely unexpected flavor. Here are some ideas to savor:

  • Espresso -- A coffee-flavored wedding cake might be a bit unusual, but you can really perk up your guests with an espresso-flavored cake.
  • PB&J -- Sweetly reminiscent of childhood, go for the classic combo of peanut butter and jelly. Yes, PB&J cakes exist (usually as peanut butter cakes and topped with jelly) and, best of all, you don't have to worry about any pesky crusts!
  • Honey -- Who says you have to save the honey for the moon? Have some with your cake! Honey cakes are sweet, delicious and not nearly as sticky as you might expect.
