More and more I have seen cupcakes being used to replace the cake. Usually the couple has a small one layer cake to have the traditional cake cutting, but all of the guests get individual cupcakes instead of a slice of cake. I personally LOVE this idea. This is a great way to have a variety of flavors. It also is a money saver. Cupcakes are usually much cheaper then a large wedding cake.
TLC.com had some creative ideas for alternatives to wedding cakes. They said that a desert bar or ice cream bar were also great ideas. Another idea is to have a pie bar, this also is a great way to incorporate different tastes.
This all goes along with the one point that I am always trying to make: Do what makes you and your husband to be happiest. If you do not like cake, why serve it at your wedding? Just because something is a "wedding tradition" does not mean you have to do it. If you enjoy other types of desert more, then choose it instead of a cake. Always keep in mind that this is your day and as long as your fiance agrees, then it is okay to step outside of the box.
