We are going with cupcakes instead of a cake, and our meal includes a dessert course too. I’m just wondering if I should include more sweet options on the cupcake table (more visual appeal), and what those options should be. I am thinking it would be nice to have several options but in small quantities to minimize waste. Anything you are doing or have seen done that was a hit with guests, please share! Thanks 🙂

We are doing a sweet table our venue does with mini Chocolate zuccata cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, creme brulee, and tiramisu. We are also doing cupcakes. My mom and I picked the food and we both have the biggest sweet tooths ever! I would try to focus on desserts that can be left out- I know I would go back to a dessert table throughout the night to grab more desserts!!!

If your meal comes with a dessert in addition to your cupcakes, you will certainly have enough dessert! But I do love the idea of multiple choices in small quantities (that is what we are doing for our sweets table)!

@Toronto2014: If you’re already serving dessert, you don’t need to offer other choices in addition to cupcakes. You will probably have leftover cupcakes as it is. People don’t normally eat two desserts, much less 3 or more.
If you are worried about the cupcake display not filling up the table, either use a smaller round table for a tiered, round cupcake holder, or use a different type of display.
