We love a slice of wedding cake as much as the next guest, but even the most sweet-toothed of couples might find it hard to get through the leftovers before flying off on their honeymoon. It's for this reason that savory wedding cakes are becoming popular, especially if you're going for an evening buffet or something a little more relaxed for your wedding breakfast.
We've all seen the literal cheese cakes that have become popular over recent years (even Costco is in on the game now), but what about a pork pie cake? Popularized in the UK, pork pies are traditionally made with chopped pork and pork fat (vegetarians need not apply) and surrounded by a thick pastry. While you may need to search around a bit to find a qualified baker in the States, the real deal from a top-end butcher will really give you a beautiful showpiece and a filling snack for the evening buffet. They look especially at home in a rustic or vintage-themed wedding, especially outdoors.
