- Wedding: Fireman’s Pavillion
Going to be straight out: Fiance and I don’t like regular cake so we’re going to have a tiered cheesecake. (See photos below) Most of our guests love cheesecake, but we want to put out more for dessert options. We also own a chocolate fountain we plan to use.
what dessert options would you love to see at a wedding?

We are also doing a bananas fosters chef station. Check with your caterer, who knows what fun options they have.

Yum, I love cheesecake. What sort of cheesecake are you having?
I’m always a fan of lemon tart, but not if your cheesecake is lemon.
I’d say not something chocolatey when you’re also having the fountain.
I love pecan pie too.

I’d try something less dairy based, with all that chocolate and cheese already on offer. How about a selection of cookies and/or donuts?

Lemon meringue pie is always a winner in my book.

Definitely a pile of strawberries if that’s not already in the plan. And you can’t go wrong with fudgy brownies either.

Love cheesecake! Anything with lemon custard, french macarons–have something that’s not chocolate.

Maybe have a couple pies as well? Lemon meringue, triple berry, and maybe a chocolate silk or something?

I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake, so I’d pick anything else. Cookies, cupcakes, pie, etc. I agree that you need to have a variety also. Fruit flavors, chocolate flavors, maybe something plain for the less adventurous types.
Now im hungry 😑

I would get something non-dairy based and/or dairy optional (i.e. option of a la mode). I personally can’t stand cheesecake – I can mildly tolerate it ice cold, but not even the slightest bit warmer and I’ve always hated the wet sand texture of graham cracker crusts that get gummy after sitting for awhile. Based on my friend group I think it can be a bit divisive (so either love or hate, not lukewarm at all so the people who hate it would likely appreciate another option). A variety of tartlets or even blondies or cookies would be a nice option. If you’re thinking a plated dessert, pie or something like a tarte tatin (a la mode optional) would work nicely.

I would also do a Bundt cake for those who do not like dairy or the mouthfeel of cheesecake!

Cookies or cupcakes if it’s a grab and go or an apple pie or strawberry strawberry shortcake if plated. I think people appreciate simple desserts.
I don’t like cheesecake and chocolate fountains skeeve me out.

I like cheesecake, but i think Tarts, cupcakes, macaroons and fruit would be a great addition for variety.

xiexie : Yes! I’m lactose intolerant, so I’d be bummed to see only cheesecake. I’d be thrilled to grab a cookie.

I would lay out a “Chocolate Fondue” variety; apples, strawberries, melon, and pound cake.
I agree that cupcakes are a good idea, too. FH and I don’t like cake, so we aren’t having one, but we do want people to have that option available for people that like it. A couple varieties is always a good idea. Lemon, Carrot, Chocolate, etc
We’re also having a Macaron tower. A. Because I love Macarons, and B. They look super pretty when they’re done right.
Finally, I’d put in some vegan key lime squares. It offers something for the lactose intolerant or those who just want something less rich.
