Being the dessert junkie that I am, I’ve definitely given this post more thought than I care to admit. The Candy Table is always a great addition to any wedding, but let’s be real. It’s been done too many times. Why not opt for something a bit more original or unique when creating your Dessert Table for your wedding.
Let’s just take a moment to peruse some of the more….exercised ideas out there. There’s the plain & simple candy table (nothing wrong with it, just that if I am going to consume 1,100 calories of sugar I’d like it to be something a bit more substantial than smrties and jelly bellys). Then there’s the sundae bar, again, great idea. But this isn’t a 7-year old’s birthday party we’re getting all dolled up for here. Of course we also have the ever-famous ‘cake table’ with an array of supermarket cakes and cheesecakes. Now again, I’m not dissing it, I eat supermarket cake all the time. I’m just suggesting something a bit more…refined. I mean this is your wedding after all.
Here are a few ideas I came up with:
It’s fun, French and fabulous. What’s not to love about a giant tower of cream puffs?
Also fun, fab and French, but perhaps a bit more chic? The pretty pastels of a macaron win me over every time.
Why go through the trouble of cutting a cake for your guests when cupcakes can save you the time and the mess. Best of all, with mini cupcakes, you get to try a variety of different flavors (also your guests don’t feel as bad when they’ve eaten 6 mini cupcakes as opposed to 6 regular sized ones).
‘petit four’ – French for mini cakes or just a French version of a cupcake. However you chose to look it, they’re cute, and sooo pretty…
Probably the most inexpensive treat you could buy, wedding themed sugar cookies are just the cutest thing. I mean why not even use them as wedding favours?
Okay I lied, popcorn is the cheapest treat money could buy. Then cookies. But how cool would it be to have a gourmet popcorn bar at your wedding? You could even make up your own flavours like strawberry and white chocolate, or caramel-coconut chocolate drizzle…yumm.
P.S. I love the idea of serving them in champagne flutes. Genius.
Alas if none of these ideas tickle your fancy you could just stick to a mason jar desert. I mean there’s really nothing you can’t shove into one of those things and tie a ribbon around.
