Today’s Wedding Wednesday post is on the sweeter side. Here are some ideas for giving your guests decadent desserts with a twist at your wedding reception. Dessert should never be boring!
Grown Up’s Bread Pudding Station:
In addition to the traditional lemon sauce, let your guests explore with several other options. Let them try alcoholic toppings for their bread pudding like warm bourbon sauce, Galliano & cream, Frangelica & cream or Chambord with raspberry coulis.
Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Carts:
If you’d like a fun dessert action station, try Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Cart. They’ll do cones and cups or a Sundae Party if you wish. If this option is too pricey, talk to your caterer about creating a sundae bar for you. I just love creating toppings that fit different personalities. Sweet Willows Creamery in York makes home made ice creams that are just delicious. Don’t shy away from unique flavors like the maple bacon ice cream we served at our “Outstanding at the Farm” dinner.
Decadent desserts for seated served dinners:
Speaking of ice cream, try a rich creamy vanilla bean ice cream doused in a shot of espresso, topped with a puff of cotton candy.
A hot shot of chocolate combined with Godiva liquor works well over Vanilla ice cream too. Don’t forget the crushed macadamia nuts on top!
