Show of hands who loves dessert?
When you think of Wedding dessert, you immediately think of CAKE CAKE CAKE CAKE! Well, this weeks Tuesday Tip gave tips for dessert alternatives for your big day. It’s 2019, why do we need to settle for ONLY cake, mix it up a little bit!
So many options exist for those sweet treats after the big I, Do! Here are a few of my favorite suggestions from The Knot:
1. Waffle Sundaes
Breakfast food is an all-around crowd-pleaser that can be served at any time—especially when it’s a la mode. Offering different ice cream flavors and toppings like berries, sprinkles and hot fudge will appeal to every guest’s taste buds.
2. Mini Pies on a Stick
Anything you can eat on a stick is an idea we can totally get behind. Pies of all different flavors, like apple, blueberry, chocolate or banana cream, will guarantee there’s something for everyone at your wedding, and their fun-size portions allow your guests to try more than one flavor.
3. Berry Parfaits
Fruit and yogurt parfaits are a great go-to dessert for a healthy (and gluten-free!) option. Guests can create their own parfait and add ingredients from a fruit and yogurt bar, or if you’d like to encourage more mixing and mingling during the reception, have attendants pass them around to keep the energy and movement levels up.
4. Cake Push Pops
Cake push pops are easy to eat (aka guests can eat with one hand while they’re getting down on the dance floor), they look super-cute on display and they take the idea of a cake pop to the next level. Color coordinate the frosting in the push pop as a nod to your wedding color palette.
Glazed, frosted or plain old cake, everyone loves a good doughnut. Reach out to a local bakeshop to try and get the freshest, yummiest treats for your reception. Display them on tiers to mimic a multitiered cake, or go for something a little different, like a doughnut wall or mounds of little doughnut holes.
We know how much you love our Tuesday Tips and Fun Fact Friday so we’re just gonna get down to the really nitty gritty. Each week we’ll dig a little deeper and give you the full story behind these tips. Make sure you join us next week for more insights on your favorite wedding topics!
