Get Your “Just Desserts”!

Colin Cowie said it best- “Without a doubt, the ultimate icon for a wedding is the cake! It’s the crowning glory, or the pièce de résistance of any wedding. For most of my brides, no matter how small or large the budget, it lives right up there in importance with “the dress.” In recent years, wedding desserts have evolved to become more than just a cake. It is a total visual and gastronomic fantasy of desserts. The dessert table of today is not your mother’s Viennese Table. It has become an art form. Done correctly, it goes far beyond displaying the wedding cake, acting as both décor and a wow moment all wrapped up for a sweet and happy ending.

Fondant or frosting, vanilla or chocolate, decadent dessert bar or voluminous cake- the ‘pièce de résistance ‘ for your event is a chance to show who you are and what you love!

If you’re looking for an elegant and refined feel to your dessert table, 100 Layer Cake recently dedicated a whole blog to different looks for modern cakes. A few of our favorites are pictured below.























But don’t feel confined by a traditional cake if you and your loved one are more free-spirited! Preston Bailey recommends something more whimsical and fun- reminiscent of childhood days. These sophisticated sundaes, plated individually, are an ice cream lover’s dream.












Or, you can have your cake… and everything else you love! The fantastic thing about a dessert bar at your reception is that there really are no rules. For a touch of traditionalism, you can have a tiered cake; for a fun and more hands-on feel, you can add any of your favorite desserts. The Ruffled Blog shows a dessert bar below that fulfills any sweet tooth, including cupcakes, brownies and pies.









Whichever look and feel you are drawn to for your event, Southern Events has a wide array of cake plateaus and cupcake/dessert stands to choose from!
