The world of Pinterest, an ever increasing past time for us lovers of weddings, fashion, baking and creativity in general, as caused the standard idea of "The Wedding Cake" to change dramatically. Couples have begun to stray away from just offering the ordinary 5tier vanilla cake, and now offer guests an experience from the dessert station! Couples now offer, sometimes in addition to the Cake, a full display of desserts and sweet goodies. Some of my favorites include:
1) The Candy Bar: Whether you are offering candy that matches your color scheme or having your favorites for guests, the candy bar is a fun way for everyone to feel like a kid again. And of course to have a snack for the ride home!
2) Cookie Bar: Who doesn't love a warm cookie after a night of dancing! This dessert idea is especially fun when you serve them with a nice cold glass of milk and of course, with paper striped straws!
3) Pimp Your Cupcake: The cupcake bar is the ultimate way for guests to have exactly what kind of cake they want. Whether you have multiple flavors of cupcakes, plus everyone's favorite toppings or just keep to one flavor, this station will be popular.
4) Pie Pops/Cake Pops: Although I never personally tried a Pie Pop, these downright adorable desserts provide the perfect amount of sweetness for guests to grab when they need a break from having fun! And of course, there are the famous cake pops, which can offer your guests an array of your favorite flavors while also matching your color scheme!
5)The Updated Wedding Cake: And finally, for those who still want to stick with the traditional one cake you can now do it in style! The art of cake making has truly progressed and now allows couples the options to practically wall paper their cake with edible icing. Whether it be modern stripes or fresh floral, your cake can be the cherry on top of creating the perfect themed wedding.
