7 Best Edible Wedding Favors (That Aren’t Jordan Almonds) Slideshow

Send your guests away with something sweet

Jam

Pick your favorite in-season fruit and boil it down for a simple, homemade, and delicious wedding favor. If you’re running short on time or don’t like to cook much, you can buy small jars of jam and personalize them with printed tags.

Potted Herbs

Give your guests a gift that keeps on giving. Buy and pot seedlings or, if you have a month, get seeds and grow them yourself. Pick fast-growing herbs like basil or mint and let your guests pick which plant they’d like.

Infused Salt

Buy salt in bulk and infuse it with a favorite flavor, like lemon zest or rosemary leaves. Combine the salt and whatever you’re infusing it with in a food processor, and blend until your zest or herb is broken into small pieces. Portion into jars for your guests to take home and cook with.

Caramel Corn

Sweet, crunchy caramel corn is an economical giveaway: popcorn kernels are inexpensive, and you can make a lot of popcorn in one batch. Or, buy premade caramel corn (or other seasoned popcorn) and scoop into paper bags. Seal them with customized labels or stickers.

Honey

Get in touch with a local beekeeper several months before your wedding and ask if he or she will share their harvest with you. Not only will you be giving your guests something sweet to take home with them, but you’ll also be supporting local farmers.

Mini Pies

Bake a tiny pie for each of your guests, or find a bakery that will do so for you. Whether you serve them in small jars or in mini aluminum pie tins, these favors are sure to win over your guests.

S'mores

Who doesn’t love s’mores? Give your wedding guests a sweet on-the-go treat by packing a s’mores kit — a couple of marshmallows, a pair of graham crackers, and a square of chocolate — in a paper box.


The naked wedding cake: It's a trend that's clearly here to stay, as couples and their bakers are forgoing an outer layer of icing in favor of an unfrosted confection that looks just as good as it tastes. If you're not a fan of the traditional three-tiered white wedding cake, this big-day dessert alternative might just be for you.

As these naked wedding cake ideas will show, there's a style for every celebration, whether you're after a naked rustic wedding cake or a modern one featuring unexpected flavors. Naked wedding cakes aren't all about looks and taste, though. There's actually a serious benefit to choosing an unfrosted confection, and that's freshness.

Because frosting locks in moisture, a baker is able to whip up a traditional wedding cake in advance of the big day, then add the finishing touches right before delivery. That's not the case with an exposed wedding cake, which needs to be baked relatively close in time to the reception to ensure each layer is fresh, moist, and delicious. That means your pro will likely pop your tiers into the oven the night before or even the day of your nuptials. Nothing beats a cake baked just hours before it's eaten, right?

Whatever your reason for choosing one, you'll soon see that bare wedding cakes can be chic, sophisticated, and beautiful&mdashnot too sweet, but just sweet enough.
