Not everyone is a cake person. Some only like the cake, others just the frosting. Some would rather eat pie! Are you looking for something different? There are all sorts of ideas out there to treat your guests to a sweet treat at the end of a meal without going with the traditional cake.

Dessert table – set out a table with all different options! This way you can offer your guests everything from ice cream to fruit tarts! Place designed to-go bags on the table, so guests can take a sweet treat with them on the way home. Dessert meets party favor… a win-win!

Cake pops – If you use cake pops you have more opportunity to experiment with different flavors, colors and display designs! These fun and delicious bite sized treats can function as place cards at your reception tables, act as escort cards as guests arrive or adorn a guest book table in a festive design.

Cupcakes – these desserts have seriously grown up since their grade school bake sale days! Ranging in all sorts of flavor combinations, styles and sizes, they are truly the designer dessert. Be sure to let guests know what they will be biting into so they can pick the perfect flavor.

Ice Cream, Popsicles, & Doughnuts, Oh my! – looking to move as far away from the traditional cake as possible? Consider what you crave when it comes to that something sweet? Ice Cream and Fro-Yo stationsare a fun way for guests to get interactive with their dessert, choosing flavors and toppings! We are loving the current popsicle craze! The flavors, colors, and designs are endless and they are perfect on these warm days. But, if you really want to win your guests over, a warm delicious doughnut with a shot of milk can’t be beat!
