Maybe it’s completely wrong to you to have anything but a wedding cake for dessert!? It’s a long-standing tradition along with the cutting of the cake, but as couples continue to customize their weddings, foregoing certain traditions is quite common. If you’re looking to do something different and memorable (and cake just isn’t your thing), we’ve compiled desserts options to try at your own wedding, birthday or event!
These sweets could even be in addition to your cake if you’re wanting to provide another option for you guests! The only reasonable thing left to do next is continue on your research, and taste test some of these yummy treats!
Let’s start easy with some cupcakes. The cake’s beloved child? Whatever it may be, we love the idea of cupcakes. They give you the taste of a cake, without the effort and messiness of full-on cakes. Say goodbye to trying to equally cut the perfect serving size for everyone.
Next, for a truly out-of-the-box dessert, try donuts! Because who doesn’t love donuts… or at least say yes when offered one? Donuts are the next best sweet treat from cupcakes. We also love that some weddings make a full wall of them. Guests can just grab and go.
Last but not least, s’mores. What better way to end the night than with some s’mores. We love the idea of them because they are a crowd favorite. The combinations of sweet, sticky, and melt-in-your-mouth warmness give a nostalgic feeling to the night. So, grab your guests and cuddle up by a bonfire and get roasting!
In the end, the decision is up to you. These sweets could even be in addition to your cake if you’re wanting to provide more wedding desserts for your guests! The only reasonable thing left to do next is continuing on your research, and taste test some of these yummy treats! Whatever you decide to go with for your dessert, we’re sure any of these options will leave the guests saying “I wish I thought of that”.
