Planning the Perfect Wedding Dessert Bar

If we asked you to name something you would expect to find at a wedding reception, cake would probably top the list. Images of multi-tiered, buttercream-covered elegance certainly come to our minds when a couple schedules a consultation with us to discuss wedding plans, but cake is just one of many ways to treat your wedding guests to something special.

We know you want to wow your guests with an experience that is unique to you and your wedding day. For that reason, we offer a variety of dessert catering options.  One of our favorite ways to get creative is with a wedding dessert bar.

Dessert bars are completely customizable and can feature a wide variety of delectable flavors. Your guests will love sampling a selection and choosing their favorites.

Dessert bars also feature convenient individual servings that your guests can grab at will. Your cake cutting is a big deal, but a dessert bar keeps everyone happy as they salivate with anticipation (think of it as a dessert appetizer).

When designing a dessert bar, some couples choose to include a traditional multi-tiered cake, while others skip a cake entirely. Regardless of how you slice it (cake pun intended), dessert bars are primarily made up deliciously sweet, self-serve options…

  • Individual cakes – These are multi-layered cupcakes that rival the elegance of a full-size cake.  
  • Cupcakes
  • Cake Pops
  • Cookies
  • Macaroons
  • Whoopie Pies
  • Eclairs

And if you really want to up the fun factor, let us introduce you to our latest dessert bar obsession… desserts on a stick. Yes, you read that right. Dessert on a stick is fun and oh so easy to eat since it only requires one hand… #winning.

  • Cake pops & Cake Kabobs – We love cake pops! They can be virtually any flavor or color, and they make such a festive display. If you want to impress guests with something even more creative, we recommend cake kabobs. Kabobs feature up to three different cake flavors, and they are just as easy to eat!
  • Pie on a Stick – Pie on a stick is adorable, delicious and perfectly suited for wedding receptions with a rustic vibe. 
  • Crispy Treats on a Stick – This timeless treat can take on virtually any form. And when you carry it on a stick, you can kiss sticky fingers goodbye.

A single cake makes an elegant impression, but variety is the spice of life! Desserts can be customized in any number of ways to suit your color scheme or wedding theme, and desserts can also be displayed in creative ways (colorful vases, vintage cake plates, etc.). 

Your wedding should be a unique reflection of you and your love story, and a dessert bar is an incredible way to express personal style… So treat your wedding guests to something special. They’ll be talking about it long after the last song plays.
