Mmmm, your post is making my hungry! Those all sound delicious. We didn’t have a dessert buffett, but I recently went to a wedding with frozen grocery store cream puffs. They weren’t too fancy but they were tasty and very popular ๐Ÿ™‚

Is anyone attending diabetic or hypoglycemic?

Im hypoglycemic, which means I cant eat more than half a bite of most of the yummy things youre thinking of but I loooove fruit for dessert ๐Ÿ™‚

We had a dessert buffet, and the most popular desserts were definitely the cheesecakes, particularly the Reese’s cup cheesecake. We bought ours from Aladdin’s supplier (don’t know if the chain is national yet).

For the typical sugary, decadent desserts, we had a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and a chocolate cheesecake at our wedding. They were…incredible. I mean, “omg why did I make this? I didn’t need to know that there was anything this delicious that could be made in our oven” good. 

We had other stuff, too. But those were the hands-down winners.

We had a dessert bar at our wedding with a variety of options so everyone could’ve enjoyed something, whether they liked sour, fruity, chocolate, etc. It was most definitely a hit and we received a lot of compliments.

I did something very similar at my wedding.  I just wanted to say that it was a huge hit!  I made a lot of cookies, bars, cheesecake pops (i think those were the biggest hit), and some ohter stuff.

@stephcramer1:  DON’T buy red velvet cupcakes, my brother had a dessert bar at his wedding and they were mostly all left at the end. They look pretty, but the flavour of red velvet cake, at least in my experience, really isn’t a widely liked one. Lots of kids took a cupcake, decided they didn’t like it, and squished it into the tablecloth. 

i think that desserts depend on the theme of your wedding, but I would definitely say that m&m cookies are a really great idea for the kids’ table. They won’t leave the children sticky, there’s no cream or icing to stain outfits, no overly rich flavours that will make them feel sick, and all kids like biscuits so they won’t be disappointed by more grown up flavours.

I would say same goes for most of the other desserts, but I would veto any suggestions of chocolate fountains because they are a bad idea. Period.  They’re totally crawling with germs, parents will not thank oh for inviting their kids the opportunity to bathe in chocolate and they leave even adults embarrassingly covered in chocolate.

I love cheesecake so think it’s a great idea, but I went to a summer wedding where the cheesecake was not stored well and ended up really “sweaty” and gross. Just make sure you think about storing it properly! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your unconventional ideas!

By the way, we had a “pie bar” with many types of pie and it was a hit! Not sure if that’s something you would want to consider. We also had a couple of sheet cakes for those who may not like pie.
