Unique Wedding Desserts


Maybe it’s completely wrong for 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 unique wedding dessert options to try at your own wedding, birthday, or event! These sweets could even be in addition to your cake if you are wanting to provide a lot of options for your friends and family.


The first option to consider for a wedding dessert is donuts. Everyone loves donuts and they are easy to grab and hand out to guests! You can also add some décor to your space with a fun donut wall. If you still want to have a traditional cake cutting, most bakeries can make a small donut cake for you and your fiancé to cut into. Also, another great option to consider at your reception is adding coffee with your donuts. All your guests are going to love ending the night by bringing home a donut and coffee. Here is a tip: set out to-go bags for guests to put their to-go donuts into.


Cupcakes – those adorable, one-bite wonders that can rock your dessert game. Imagine a tower of these little cuties, all dressed up with different frostings and toppings. And guess what? Your guests get to pick and choose their faves. Vanilla, chocolate, maybe even something wild like raspberry-lemon – the options are endless!


Got a thing for all things creamy and dreamy? Then cheesecakes are calling your name. These velvety delights come in all sorts of flavors. You can go big with a grand cheesecake topped with berries, or mix it up with a bunch of mini cheesecakes in flavors like New York-style or even pumpkin spice.

Variety of Desserts

At weddings, we are starting to see couples provide a variety of wedding desserts for guests to choose from. If you are a dessert lover and cannot decide on what dessert to consider, a table of unique wedding desserts may be the option for you. There can be a small two-tier cake for your traditional cake cutting as well as a variety of gooey butter cakes, cookies, brownies, cake pops, doughnut holes, cupcakes, macarons, chocolate-covered Oreos, ice cream, candy.
