What a great alternative to wedding cakes or cupcakes

Real Weddings: Miranda & Grant’s Vintage Tennessee Wedding

Italian wedding traditions and customs are important for Italian Americans. Italian weddings have their own traditions. We pulled together a guide to help you plan your Italian wedding favors, gifts and other wedding items.

The centuries-old Italian wedding cake called millefoglie (“a thousand layers”) contains endless tiers of puff pastry, pastry cream, and fresh fruit that result in a perfect storm of scrumptiousness. Our rustic take on the cake injects a little zing without sacrificing authenticity. We added tangy lemon to the filling and replaced the traditional strawberries with ripe red currants and juicy raspberries, just right for a summer soirée.

A wedding cake is—quite literally—the icing on an amazing day. Make yours deliciously special by honoring your family heritage or the flavors of a favorite place. Here, we reimagined five traditional confections from around the globe. Dessert is served!
