When it comes to wedding desserts, maybe it’s completely wrong to you to have anything but a wedding cake!? 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!
Here are a few of our FAVORITE types of Outside of the Box Wedding Desserts:
Cupcakes give you the flexibility to get creative with cake-and-icing combinations, allow you to offer several different flavor profiles while not costing you a fortune. They can also be displayed in creative ways!
A donut wall or display is the Instagram-worthy wedding treat your reception needs. It’s one of the most beloved wedding desserts. Not only are wedding donuts easy to eat, but they’re also easily customizable too. Get them iced in your wedding colors, or arrange them on an interactive wall with your monogram on it. Regardless of the way you display them, your guests will devour your wedding donuts.
Love is sweet! Therefore making a candy bar the perfect addition to your wedding reception! Whether you pair it with other wedding desserts or let it shine on its own, guests will love creating a custom bag of their favorite sweets. (Psst: this can also serve as a wedding favor for your guests.)
From icing monograms to cut out shapes, wedding cookies are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth and add an element of personalization. Arrange them on a towering platter for the ultimate wow factor, or serve them with a shot of milk to fuel your nostalgia. No matter what way you like your cookies, they’re a great wedding dessert idea for those who want to break with tradition. (Psst: me again…Cookies can also be used as your wedding favor!)
If you like the idea of a wedding cake but want to give it a fresh upgrade, consider having wedding cake pops instead. These inventive creations are a great option for couples who don’t want to completely forgo tradition.
Are you having an outdoor reception? Consider having a S’mores bar as an after-dinner activity. Give your guests the surprise of the night by offering a S’mores station. It’s a treat that’ll make everyone happy—after all, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate is an iconic combo that’s a crowd-pleaser. Ask your caterer about adding additional fun toppings like fresh fruits, peanut butter cups, etc…to really WOW your guests!
They are one of the most elegant (and delicious) wedding desserts. Ask your local pastry chef to arrange them in the form of a cake as a nod to tradition, or get creative with your dessert table arrangements instead. No matter what option you choose, wedding macarons are sure to be a well-loved option at your reception.
