    @kateisstoned:  I love it, we are doing a dessert bar with a spread of different cakes, pies, cookis, and brownies and having Cold Stone Creamery cater the ice cream. We are having a summer wedding so ice cream is appropriate.

    It would be awesome! The biggest challenge I think would be how to keep the ice cream cold and somewhat cleaned up, probably need to have staff to wipe up drips and messy handles. Cake and ice cream are so good together.

    I don’t know what your guests would do, but I can tell you we had WAY too much cake left over!! We had less people take servings than there were guests. We ordered 172 servings of cake for 130 guests (just because of how sizes worked out), and we probably had 60 – 75 servings left. Better than running out though!

    We provided take-away boxes and our staff boxed up pieces and we had a cute sign encouraging people to take cake at the end of the night.

    Sounds delicious! What about making the cake slices small, with the intention of people having more than one? Maybe a sign reccomeding mixing and matching and putting on your own toppings? So maybe the equivalent of 1 regular slice per person, but making them smaller so there are 2-3 slices per person.

    Sounds tasty!  If you can have melted peanut butter as well as hot fudge and caramel sauce I’d say do it.  But that’s just me (both Fiance and I are all about peanut butter on our ice cream).

    I really like this idea!  Sounds delicious.  I think how much you order will depend on how big the slices are.  If the slices are smaller or bite-sized, people may take more and mix in more toppings.  If the slices are the same size as like…a traditional piece of wedding cake, I’d probably just take one.

    yes, sounds delicious! I agree with PP. being able to try them all sounds kinda fun too…

    btw, I think this sounds even better than an “epic” spread! This seems more fun!

    I think it sounds great!  Ice cream sundae bars are always a huge hit on Four Weddings – so much so, my mom insisted (not that I needed much convincing) that I have an ice cream sundae bar for my reception.  Ice cream is always great and cake is almost expected at weddings.  I say go for it!
