    Pancake & Crepes

    Here’s another kind of desert if you don’t really like cake. Just substitute your wedding cake with stacks of pancakes or crepes and decorate them with fruits, flowers, or even creamy filling which could be use as decoration too.

    Choux might notbe as famous as macarons but it’s getting to be the trend now. We bet this light pastry dough with its many sweet, tasty filling choices, will be a bliss to the taste buds.

    Who can resist these fried treats? Donuts could be decorated with sprinkles or just a dash of powdered sugar to be one tasty delicacy. For similar taste and texture, you can also serve beignets or churros. Be sure that you don’t forget to provide dipping sauces for it.

  • Sweet Pies

    While savory pies might be tempting, it still won’t be a dessert if it’s not sweet. Pies can give a rustic and homey feeling to your whole wedding celebration. You could also have a combination of different tastes from mixed fruits to sweet chocolate filling. With their delicate details, you can simply stack these pies in an acrylic or cupcake stand for a chic and stylish décor.

  • Chocolate Fountain & S’mores

    This is one fun and exciting dessert for a wedding— everyone loves chocolate right? With just a simple chocolate fountain, you just need to prepare fruits or candies on a stick and let your guests try different combinations. For s’mores, you could provide it as a DIY s’mores bar by having all the ingredients on a dessert table. But take a note that this s’mores idea is suitable for weddings of not more than100 guests.
