Traditional Weddings used to include a cake cutting with the Bride and Groom posing in front of guests and the camera to hold hands and cut a piece of a wedding cake together and then swap bites neatly or sometimes not so neatly for the guests amusement. The top layer of the cake was then tucked away in the couple’s freezer for 1 year to be eaten to commemorate their first year of marriage together. Year old cake was not a delicious treat but again, tradition prevailed!
Today, many couples are forgoing this age old cake tradition and are opting for something more fun and enjoyable, the Dessert Station!
Today we see dessert stations ranging from small and simple to over the top elaborate. The dessert station may still include a small one or two tiered cake for the ceremonial cutting and then be surrounded by a number of bite sized treats. A few of the popular treats we see are strawberry cheesecake shots, mini key lime pie shots, banana pudding shots (very popular here in the South!), mini brownies or cookies with milk shots, mini pies like pecan or peach and my personal favorite which is Beyond Details vanilla cream puff with salted caramel (Yum!)
Taking the dessert theme a bit further, what about a fully themed station such as a S’more Bar or Popcorn Station for a Fall or Winter wedding or a Milkshake Station or Ice Cream Bar for a steamy Summer wedding reception? All of these themed Dessert Stations have been a huge hit and a lot of fun for the modern wedding attending guests!
My personal recent favorite this last June was an elaborate Ice Cream Station. The wedding couple decided to nix the wedding cake altogether and swapped spoonful’s of ice cream in front of family, friends and photographer for their never to be forgotten moment! Everyone was talking about this and the guests absolutely loved it!
This is one new tradition the couple can definitely take out of the freezer a year from now and heartily enjoy both the delicious flavored treat as well the memory they made together!
Below is a list of the items we included for this fun and memorable Ice Cream Bar.
