Wedding Dessert Idea Mackay

Your wedding cake does not have to be ‘a wedding cake!’

A concept that is still quite fresh is providing a sweets bar for your guests in lieu of wedding favours. Set your sweets bar up with personalised bags that say ‘Mr and Mrs Newlyweds’. There will be a large array of lollies in a buffet setting and your guests will be able to pack their preferred candy into cute little bags. Most adults haven’t purchased singular lollies in years and seeing all their favourite sweets out on display will inject a sense of childhood wonder and frivolity into your event.

A popular idea many brides have favoured is having a cupcake tower instead of a wedding cake. There are many reasons wedding cake specialists are getting a growing amount of requests for this clever idea. Cutting a cake and handing it out to guests can be difficult in some reception settings. Whereas having a cupcake tower where everyone can help themselves to one, or many, perfectly proportioned little cakes is a clever dessert concept.
