Wedding Ideas: Cakes + Desserts

Day 4 of wedding ideas is cakes and desserts. This is easily my favorite part of the day. I probably gained 10 pounds last wedding season from all the cake I ate! While I love the cake, there is always more that you can do for desserts for your guests. From cake pops to pies to macaroons, there’s something for everyone! So because I love the dessert portion of a day so much, get ready for a huge post!


Remember these balsa wood flowers from the flower post?! They look beautiful on a cake! Found HERE.

Loving these mini pies for each guest. I also love the ribbon and tag. Very cute. Found HERE.

Individual pies in a jar! I love this idea, especially the heart cut-out for the top. My grandmother and I attempted to make these for a shoot I did in 2010 with mild success. It’s tricky to get the right amount of filling without it being too much. Found HERE.
