If you are a bride who is looking coloring outside the lines, then you can chose to have a Donut Tower or Donut Tree at your wedding instead of a wedding cake. A Donut Tree is a very affordable option. Since a box of 12 donuts is around $5.00 at most grocery stores, for a tower with 120 donuts and you'll spend $50.00!

Even considering the price of the stand, you'll still spend $100 or much less for your wedding cake alternative and as you can see in the photos, they can be just as pretty too!

    I love the donut tree cake! What a cool idea! If I wasn't completely in love with the cupcakes I've already ordered (the best cupcakes in the whole wide world) I would definitely consider this!

    I know what you mean. It's a toss for me too between the cupcakes and donut but since a lot of my family would be coming from all over the world it seems, I think I would do a combo. Cupcakes one layer and donuts the next then make the cake at the top with fondant. The vision in my head is fabulous and I am sure it'll be a crowd pleasure. It will still in under $100 though which is the best part for me.
