Donut Dessert Tables

“This bride and groom did not like cake, so we came up with another option! Her family runs the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, and the Amish donut food truck was one of their favorites, so we brought warm donuts to her wedding! It was absolutely perfect and such a hit with the guests.” – Jennifer Matteo, Jennifer Matteo Event Planning

Cake Pops and More!

“More often, couples are saying ‘no’ to a traditional wedding cake and turning towards more unique options. When it comes to dishing out dessert, there is a wide variety of ways to sweeten up your wedding day and some of the best options come in bite-sized versions. Instead of a slice of cake, each guest can enjoy their very own custom cake pop! Other great additions are chocolate covered Oreos, chocolate covered pretzels, and so much more. Some of our treat options start at $1.50 per piece and can be customized to match your color scheme and decor. Whether you’re considering a dessert table for a more budget-friendly option or because you simply want to break away from traditional norms, your guests are sure to not only love it, but remember it!” -Brandi Matiyak, Sweetly Dipped Confections

Colorful Cupcakes and Desserts

“A combination of a small wedding cake and desserts is the most popular choice, as people like to have something to cut while also having a variety for guests to enjoy. This option is traditional meets modern! You can have a really pretty cake as a centerpiece for the table and then complement the cake with desserts. We always recommend a specialty linen, as it will set the mood and capture the eye of your guests. This is not just cake or dessert; it is a centerpiece. Think of it as a decoration that will be devoured by the end of the night.” -Chef Marie and Chef Carlos, Hands on Sweets

Mini Wedding Cakes

“Cake tasting tables are a really fun option, as mini wedding cakes create a really elegant and sophisticated look. This also eliminates the cake cutting as well and gives an option of flavors for your guests. Our favorite option for these are mini naked cakes or the mini gateaux; better known as the really shinny cakes. We normally recommend a floral centerpiece or candles to set the mood. With this option, depending on the cake, the servings are cut back as bigger portions will be served.” -Chef Marie and Chef Carlos, Hands on Sweets
