Wedding cake is great, but sometimes it's not the dessert you're looking for to celebrate your big day. And frankly, not everyone likes cake. Dessert is too good of a meal to pass up, and even if it's not your favorite part of dinner, your guests will definitely appreciate having a sweet bite to eat during the event. With so many alternatives to choose from, you might find yourself questioning if you can skip dinner entirely and just serve dessert!
Frosting, no frosting, sprinkles, no sprinkles, powdered, sugared, glazed. No matter how you serve it, donuts are a big hit with every meal. Perfect to serve as a sweet pastry with a breakfast wedding or as an after dinner treat. Serve on a plate, or on a wall for guests to select from.
Not everyone's a fan of cake, and pie makes a great wedding cake alternative. Portion sizes are similar to cake slices, they come in a variety of sweet or fruity flavors, and can even be incorporated into the dinner menu with items such as Shepard's Pie or mincemeat pie.
Cake in mini form! Cupcakes can satisfy guests' cake cravings without requiring an elaborate wedding cake to be served. Decorate them to match your wedding color scheme or supply containers of frosting and sprinkles and let guests decorate their own with a self-serve cupcake bar.
Sugary sweets aren't the only thing that have to be on the menu for dessert. Fruit is a healthy, gluten-free alternative that will satisfy cravings and can be served in salad or skewer form for easy eating.
If you are serving fruit salad and want to satisfy guests' sweet tooth, add a chocolate fondue fountain to the menu for chocolate dipped fruits. Marshmallows, Rice Krispie Treats, and cookies also make great, finger-friendly options for adding to a stick and smothering in chocolate.
