Every week, we round up our favorite Pinterest pins of the week, from helpful wedding ideas to gorgeous wedding dress inspiration, to show you what's popular in the bridal world right now. This week we're loving non-traditional takes on wedding cakes.

You'll find that couples these days are opting more often for desserts that stray away from the traditional wedding cake that we're all so accustomed to salivating over during the reception. But just because these tiered confections sway on the more unconventional route, that doesn't make them any less delicious (or oh-so-pretty!). Read on to see every sweet treat we're currently pinning, repinning, and obsessing over. But be warned: your taste buds WILL start to tingle.

Take your guests back to fond memories of their childhood by creating this whoopie pie tower. Nothing is sweeter than sinking your teeth into a cream-filled cake, after all. And hey, they're portable! Mingling made easy.

We're absolutely obsessed with this beautifully-chic cake pop centerpiece. All of the gorgeous pastel colors work wonderfully together for a spring wedding. The best part is, you can customize the colors to fit your own wedding theme.

Are you having a French-inspired soirée? This ombré tower of macaron goodies are begging to be on display at your wedding reception. Just don't forget to pop a bottle of champagne as well!

Cookies usually don't present themselves as the center of attention on a dessert table — but with this particularly scrumptious take on a wedding cake, the cookie is front and center on everyone's minds. It's amazing what an ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie can do to a person.

Breakfast for dessert? We'll take it! This massive cinnamon roll tower (complete with a generous dose of icing) is not only Instagram-worthy, but it's also super perfect for that brunch Sunday wedding you have planned.

Fruit-lovers rejoice! This mouthwatering berry "cake" is only made better with a delicious wall of chocolate keeping all of the juicy fruits in place. Now you can save most of your calories for the cocktails! It's a win-win in our book.

Some may say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but we could argue that this tower of frosting-covered cupcakes quite literally takes the cake. Wouldn't you agree?

The latest trend in non-traditional wedding cakes has our mouths watering like none other — donut towers. They have the appeal of wedding cakes in the sense that they're surprisingly still gorgeous to look at, but they also scream "brunch wedding!" in the best possible way. It's your wedding, you deserve a donut.
