Whitney Port On Wedding Cakes (And 7 Non-Traditional Cake Ideas We Love)

Desserts so delicious-looking you'll want to lick your screen. (Except don't).

Can’t decide what type of cake you want for your wedding? Neither can Whitney Port. And since the Whitney Eve Port designer (and BFF to Lauren Conrad, who recently had THE most stylish wedding ever) is a walking billboard for chic, we decided to take a leaf from her book – and consider both traditional and non-traditional dessert options. Whitney, 29, is due to wed BF Tim Rosenman later this year – and here’s what she had to say about the cake she’ll serve to all those famous guests.

“I go back and forth about whether or not I want to have a wedding cake,” says Whitney. “I find that most of the time I’m leaning toward going the less traditional route. There are so many cool, alternative options out there that are just so fun and unique. But then I stumble across a photo of a beautiful, classic wedding cake and suddenly I’m back on the traditional bandwagon in favor of that elegant wedding staple. Right now, in this very moment, I’m leaning toward the less traditional, but that could change in five minutes.”
