Has anyone ever had a dessert table?! If yes what have you had/having on it? We still want a small cake to cut for the wedding, but other than that, we don’t know where to start!

    Hi Adriana! Welcome to WeddingWire and congrats on your engagement! Smiley heart I love the idea of a small cake for the cake-cutting tradition & a dessert table, too!

    I have seen dessert tables consist of pies, mini desserts, cookies, cupcakes, donuts, candies in your wedding colors, s'mores, etc. Really, anything you want!

    Do you and your fiancé(e) have a favorite dessert?

    We are doing a dessert table with a smaller cake for cutting. Our table will have key lime tarts, chocolate pecan tarts, gourmet cookies, gourmet brownies, and tiramisu shooters. I keep wondering if I need to add more. Lol
    We asked our baker which items are best sellers/most popular. That and the tasting (YUM) helped us to decide which items to go with.
    Are you going to DIY or go with your baker for the dessert table?

    We’re going to DIY and use the baker only for cake. My MIL is a baker, and will be helping out, as well as other family members.

    That sounds awesome! Maybe think about what desserts tend to be favorites among your/FS family... or is there a specialty that someone in the family makes? It'll be so special!

    We had a dessert table in addition to a regular wedding cake. Ours had chocolate covered strawberries, mini cheesecakes, brownies, mini German chocolate cakes, mini pecan pies, mini cream puffs, and blonde brownie things that tasted almost like cookie dough and were amazing! We didn’t get to pick the desserts (an upgrade option on our package was just called “assorted mini desserts” and was the chef’s choice) but they were all delicious!

    Our colors are ivory and silver so this is the look my event designer is going for our dessert table.

    We are doing a small top tier cake 🎂 Just for us to cut. Then we’re doing a cupcake tower. We are also doing dessert shooters.

    Our dessert table will look to this, including the circle decor that will hold our cutting cake! I followed some bakers on Instagram and found her, and she had great reviews. We are having two kinds of cupcakes, red velvet cake balls coated in Oreos, and peanut butter brownies with reese’s crumbles on top. Our price is in the $650 range for all of that, including delivery set up, for approximately 125 people.

    My daughter will have a wedding cake, which seems to be growing in size by the day!! That's because her aunt is doing it and wants to do something larger than we want. I finally said go for it. We will have an assortment of cupcakes, macarons, and 3 homemaker cookies- lemon bars, chocolate chip, and snicker doodles. We will also have a plate of Japanese desserts. More than necessary but what the heck, it's a wedding! We will have great bags for anyone wanting n to take home cookies or a slice of cake. I love the idea of a dessert table. I never saw in on the East coast. We're in Ohio.

    We lucked out because a full on desert bar is included with our venue so all we have to pay for is a top tier cake for cutting.

    Maybe do cookies, brownies, cupcakes, waffles and sundae bar, fried Oreos....you could prob get a great deal with buying candy in bulk too!

    We are going to have one. My fiancé’s aunt makes cakes for a living so she is going to make our cake. We are also going to have a chocolate fountain (you can get it in amazon.) with fruit around and some homemade pastries my mom is going to make. My godmother is also making some Croatian sweets.

    We’re doing cheesecake cupcakes, assorted Italian cookies and pastries, and Italian ice (this won’t be on the table, obviously, but is part of our dessert). We’re not having a cake at all.

    My venue included the dessert bar as part of our package and we opted not to have the cake. Picture of the final bar below with my sweet nephew oooing and aahing over it.
