Do you and your fiancé like cake? If not, below are some ideas to think about for wedding day desserts. Even if you and your fiancé like cake, but are wanting something non-traditional there are many options to consider. In your opinion or your parents, it may be completely wrong to not have a wedding cake for dessert. It is a long-standing tradition along with the cutting of the cake. However, couples are continuing to want to make their wedding and dessert unique. 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.
