Desserts That Will Make Your Wedding the Sweetest
The cake is the sweetest part of every wedding, but if you want your wedding to truly stand out, consider offering something other than the traditional wedding cake. It doesn’t have to be anything expensive or too complicated, but simply something that your guests would be pleasantly surprised to see and taste. If you like the idea, here are a couple of suggestions that might inspire you.
Who says that breakfast food can be served only in the morning? If you’re looking for something classic but unexpected, think about serving delicious waffles for dessert. Just make sure to offer your guests a variety of toppings like fruit, ice cream, sprinkles, etc. A treat like this is guaranteed to cater to everybody’s needs.
This classic sweet is bound to be popular at your wedding. Plus, you can always go a step further by serving it with salted caramels, candied bacon, or something similar that you know will go well with it. Just don’t forget to also place plenty of wet wipes on the dessert table so your guests can easily clean their hands without having to spend time waiting in line for the bathroom.
Homemade pop tarts
Give your guests a taste of their childhood by serving pop tarts. You can include the classic flavours like blueberry and strawberry, but you should also try to offer something more original, like the flavours of cream and cookies. It’s simply an idea you can’t go wrong with as pop tarts are not complicated, they are very tasty, and they are one of everybody’s favourite sweets.
All that ice cream
Who could say no to a refreshing ice cream, especially if the wedding is held during the summer months. Ice cream is one of those desserts that is guaranteed to be loved by everybody, and if you find an ice cream store that rents vans and trucks for your wedding – no one will remain indifferent. When it comes to the flavours, try to offer the classic ones like vanilla and chocolate but also some a bit more exotic, like passion fruit meringue or orange and cardamom. Yum!
Pies on a stick
Anything on a stick is a good choice because, besides looking interesting and simple, it’s easy to “handle” and is unlikely to cause a lot of mess on the table. So, think about offering pies of different flavours and fillings. Rest assured that your guests would appreciate them, not just because of the amazing flavour but also because of the fun-size proportions that would allow them to try more flavours than one.
Milk and cookies
If you’re looking for something simpler but tasty, consider offering milk and some home-made cookies. You can save this treat for the late evening as a sweet energy booster, just make sure to offer a great variety of different cookies, including the all-time favourites such as chocolate chip cookies, butterscotch cookies, or the peanut butter ones. Serving cookies might seem a bit unconventional at first, but if you do it right, it can be the best treat ever.
Fruit and yogurt parfaits are a great option not just because they are healthy but also because they allow your guests to mix the ingredients and create their own perfect dessert. Parfaits are also very light, so it’s a great choice if you’re planning on having a full course meal for your wedding.
If you want to offer your guests something a bit fancier but still delicious and cake-like, consider serving cake pops. You can arrange them to resemble a cake, you can match their colours to the theme of your wedding, and you can go wild with the toppings. Your guests will love the idea!
The wedding dessert doesn’t always have to be an actual cake. There are many simpler but just as tasty options for your wedding that will definitely make it unique and more memorable. So, think about what kind of desserts you would like to serve at your wedding and don’t be afraid to experiment with more unconventional ideas. As long as your wedding dessert looks good and tastes even better, nothing else will matter.
