We’re always looking for ways to incorporate new ideas, creations, and styles into our events and desserts are no different! We absolutely love a classic, gorgeous wedding cake, but sometimes we opt for something a little bit different. From cupcakes to pastries to popsicles, we’ve seen quite a wide variety of sweets and we’d love to share a few of our favorites with you!
Instead of cake, many couples are opting for pies instead! You can cater to many more guests tastes by offering multiple flavors and some people even prefer pie to cake! We rented some gorgeous white and gold pie stand to dress up the table a bit and added some air plants to tie into the rest of the decor.
Cupcakes + Cake Toppers
Another great option that also allows for multiple flavors is mini cupcakes! Since they’re mini cupcakes guests feel like they can try more than one flavor. You can always include a smaller cake for the cake cutting like we’ve done with Kara + Tommy. Also, how amazing are those cake toppers? The bride, Kara Burke, is an extremely talented designer and created them herself.
We’ve been dying to spell out a word with donuts for a long time and we finally had the space to do so! Donut walls are one of our favorite dessert displays. They’re an adorable photo backdrop and allow your guests to have a wide variety of flavor choices. We topped with a luscious brand of greenery and blooms to dress it up and tie it into the rest of their decor.
If you’re not able to pull off a donut wall, try donut holes on cake stands with an adorable couple’s cake on top like we used for Marissa + Will! The groom actually handmade those cake toppers, we’re totally impressed!
Mini Waffle Parfaits
These mini waffle parfaits were the perfect choice for this carnival-themed wedding at Chicago’s Navy Pier. Their entire dessert setup screamed upscale fair sweets! Everything is miniature, which allows for your guests to have a little bit of everything.
Popsicles/Ice Cream Cart
If you’re having a summer wedding and looking for a unique, quirky idea you should consider having a popsicle/ice cream cart (see above) or truck (see below).
Not only is it fairly cost effective but your guests will get to choose their favorite treat! Not to mention you get some adorable pics with your icy treats.
