Tips & Tricks: Unique Desserts for a Wedding Reception

The tradition for a newly-married couple to cut a wedding cake is a long-standing one, but what about incorporating your own personality and style into the types of desserts you serve to your guests?

Choosing a selection of cakes, donuts, cupcakes, and more for your wedding will provide a unique quality to your reception that family and friends will remember. Consider some of the more recent trends we’ve seen with our couples – an assorted display of pies on a farmhouse table, or a beautifully-arranged stack of donuts, a selection of cupcakes in a variety of flavors and icings, or even a candy station for guests to make their own treat bags.
