There's a plethora of sweet alternatives to choose from, just in case cake's not your thing!
A quintessentially French dessert, the croquembouche simply radiates luxury and is often the choice of foodie couples or francophiles due to its elegant and elaborate nature. The croquembouche is often decorated with strawberries, sugared almonds, chocolate and edible flowers and can also be made from macarons and covered in ganache or melted chocolate. As a wedding dessert, it’s ideal for those with a taste for drama and decadence. It is also easily served, since it’s comprised of smaller profiterole desserts. For lovers of cream, custard, pastry and caramel, it’s a perfect choice. And it’s certain to make guests of all tastes swoon!
A theatrical nitrogen gelato bar or an ice cream buffet complete with cones and sprinkles is certain to bring out the inner child in everyone.
Something glazed and delicious from the new Mr & Mrs! Be it a tower, donut wall or stands full of different flavours, they can be adapted to suit any style of wedding and they’re simply begging for donut puns!
Inject a bit of a carnival and festival fun into your celebrations with a cotton candy cart. You can offer super-styled desserts; masses of creative flavours and absolutely everyone will love it!
The humble pie will soon steal the limelight: they’re a great way to offer a range of flavours and who could turn down Mum’s Rhubarb Crumble or Nanna’s Peach Cobbler?
Those born without a sweet tooth: prepare to rejoice. Cheese wheel cakes are a bona fide wedding trend in their own right. Cheese wheel cakes are crafted from wheels of different varieties: cheddar, blue, brie, red Leicester and even goat’s cheese. These are laid one on top of the other to create a tower. Generally the larger wheels are of more popular, harder varieties such as cheddar and the smaller wheels of softer cheese like Danish blue or Camembert. Top it all off with fresh fruit like grapes, figs, pears, peaches, kiwifruit, berries and plenty of crackers!
