Cookies, Cakes and Pies....Oh My!

Have you thought about fun ways to wow your guests at your upcoming wedding reception?  For years, the traditional tiered wedding cake has been the dessert of choice for a couple’s special day.  However, in 2012 we will see a major trend in less cakes and more dessert stations.

Couples are offering up their favorite desserts at their receptions.  From pies to cupcakes to cookies, its a buffet of beautifully displayed flavors and options for guests.

Candy displays also provide an opportunity to combine food and favor into a fun, interactive station for your guests.  More and more brides are seeing that this is one of the most popular choices for party favors.

Grooms cakes will also be making a comeback this year, going beyond sports and music themed treats and becoming nearly as elaborate as the primary wedding cake.

Consider these fun ideas when planning your dessert buffet:

Dessert Shooters - Your favorite decadent desserts are made pint size in shot glasses and served with slender spoons. 

Cookie Cupcakes - Guests enjoy a cookie cupcake tower stacked with cookies shaped in the form of cupcakes set in cupcake liners topped with freshly made buttercream & flowers for a new alternative to the wedding cake.
