5 Cakes for People Who Don’t Like Sweets, Covington, Kentucky

Not everyone is a huge fan of overly sugary sweets. Fortunately, there are quite a few cakes that dial back the sweetness but still deliver the goods in terms of taste. If you have a loved one with a finicky sweet tooth, consider the following options for the holidays or other special occasions.

5 Tasty Cake Ideas That Aren’t Too Sweet

1. Fruit Bases

Fruit-based cakes offer the perfect amount of natural sweetness. Additionally, fruity cakes tend to be a little healthier, which makes them good for people with dietary concerns. Virtually any fruit can be used, with popular choices including strawberries, lemons, and blueberries.

2. Carrot Cake

cakesThis beloved classic pairs ultra-moist carrot-infused cake with cream cheese icing. Carrot cake is suitable for many different occasions, from birthdays to holiday celebrations. You can cut the sweetness of the cake further by adding nuts for texture.

3. Green Tea Flavoring

Green tea or matcha cake offers a unique flavor that balances sweetness with the earthiness of green tea. Plus, the green coloring is sure to turn heads thanks to its vibrant hue. Adorn green tea cakes with a light Swiss meringue icing to keep the sweetness in check.

4. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate offers a more complex, less sweet flavor than milk chocolate. Dark chocolate also offers health benefits when consumed in moderation. If you know someone who loves dark chocolate, a chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache could be just the thing.

5. Coffee Flavored Cake

Much like green tea cake, coffee-flavored cake offers an uncommon flavor profile that many people adore. When topped with a thin glaze, coffee cake makes a great after-dinner dessert, especially when paired with a cup of joe.
