Today is National Creamsicle Day, and it has us thinking about desserts. We all know that wedding cake is a wedding dessert tradition that is guaranteed to please your guests. However, there are plenty of ways to get creative with wedding desserts, if you’re looking for alternatives to the traditional wedding cake. Just as we work with our clients to customize their full wedding reception menu, we also help clients brainstorm unique wedding dessert bar ideas. This can be a fun way to top off the evening and impress your guests, while they are on the dance floor. Perhaps even motivate those who may shy away from dancing! Of course these dessert bar ideas are not just for wedding receptions. They can be used as dessert bar ideas for bar & bat mitzvahs, corporate events, outdoor events, or any type of event you are planning. Check out some of these delicious wedding dessert bar ideas!

Milk and Cookie Wedding Dessert Bar We make these cookies on site to tantalize your guests with the smell of fresh homemade cookies in the oven. We offer a variety of cookie options including chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter cookies. Since it is a wedding dessert bar, we even offer three different types of milk to choose from. How many weddings have you been to where chocolate milk and strawberry milk is part of the dessert option?

Bananas Foster Station Fresh sliced bananas sauteed with butter, brown sugar and rum. Seriously, does it get any better? Actually it does; as we serve this warm, decadent dessert over ice cream. This dessert bar is fun for your guests, as our chef’s prepare the bananas foster to order. If you’re not a fan of bananas, we can customize this wedding dessert bar with your favorite fruit, like peaches. August is National Peach month after all… Photo credit to tPoz Photography
