The wedding cake is a tradition that dates back to ancient times. However, you don’t need to follow these old cake customs just because that’s the way it has always been. Your wedding should reflect you and your fiancé as a couple, and if you don’t want to follow the standard wedding traditions, a dessert bar may be for you! Dessert bars are on the rise as a hot trend for upcoming weddings, and many bakers are starting to specialize in this fun, charming idea. Here at Thistlewood we recommend using Simply Delicious by Candace Powell, who makes amazing cakes and many other yummy treats, and/or Sweet Treets, who even specialize in dessert bars. Either will go above and beyond with all the desserts you can imagine, from amazing cakes, cupcakes, cakeballs, pies, tarts, macaroons, cookies and more.
Fun baked treats are a delicious and enjoyable, but a candy bar is another great option. Of course, candy can also be intermixed with the baked treats for an even bigger treat. Coordinate your desserts and candy treats with your wedding colors or theme.
Your dessert bar should have a great display! Using various containers, stands and more to vary the heights and textures can create a dramatic effect. At Thistlewood we have many decorations, cake stands and serving platters to help you and your baker create an amazing dessert bar.
