4 Creative Wedding Dessert Ideas

4 Creative Wedding Dessert Ideas | Viper Alley

Look beyond traditional wedding cakes for a creative spin on dessert at an event. Not only will guests be surprised and intrigued by the sweet, unexpected treats, but it’ll also be a great way to stand out from the crowd and do something different that’s right on trend.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a beautiful wedding cake, but it’s fun to shake things up and offer more modern dessert options to make your wedding day really special. Besides, passed desserts and bites are becoming fashionable in the event planning industry.

Here are the most creative wedding dessert ideas to impress your guests and end the evening on a sweet note.

Donut Wall

Instead of having a wedding cake, hang donut rings on a wall. It’s a fun way to encourage guest participation, where they can pick their favorite flavors from the wall and eat the donuts on the dance floor. Plus, there’s tons of opportunity to make the donut wall really beautiful and eye-catching—use a medley of sprinkles, frosted designs, cereal toppers, and fillings.

Macaron Tower

French macarons are bright and beautiful, and they add a level of sophistication to any event. Plus, they resemble wedding cakes, as you can create different layers with varying hues and flavors. You can either create one large tower or set up a few mini ones for each table.

Cake Pops

Why go for one large cake when you can pass around cute, mini cake pops for people to enjoy in a bite or two? Cake pops are really fun, and there’s so much you can do as far decoration and flavor go. It’s a great way to offer a unique dessert option at an event that’ll give guests “tastes” of each type of cake. Set up a few different types of cake pops, so people can try them all and have a little bit of everything.


According to Wedding Wire, you can totally ditch the classic wedding cake for a dessert table filled with mini treats, such as donuts or s’mores, as it’s trending for 2018. If you choose to create a s’mores table, it lets guests make their own creations and have as much as they like. It’s a fun activity at a wedding that really stands out.
