No ifs, ands or bundts about it.

  1. Wedding bundt cakes definitely don't get as much love as they should. Traditional white wedding cakes (yes, even maybe-not-so-traditional ones with amazing sugar flowers and ombre icing) are typically everyone's first choice when planning their wedding dessert. Which is exactly why we've put together this roundup of bundt cakes for you to peruse. They need a little attention, too! Why do we love them so much, you ask? Because they're super versatile. You can either serve them at your reception or give them as wedding favors. (Because who doesn't want to leave a wedding with their own little slice of sugary heaven?) You can also personalize them much more than wedding cakes, where guests must eat the flavor of cake you've already chosen. Some couples simply pick three bundt cake flavors and let guests choose the ones that they want. So that great aunt who craves coconut icing instead of buttercream? Totally doable. If you're even the slightest bit over the typical wedding cake, why not consider a bundt instead? Here's a little inspiration to get you started!
