Wedding Dessert Table

Wedding cakes are one of our favorite parts of this business: they’re the centerpiece of the event and show each couple’s personality.

However, not every guest loves cake, and sometimes you need lots of dessert options to please lots of people.

We’ve shared several dessert table options for holidays, and today we’re sharing a wedding dessert table! With cookies, macarons, cupcakes, and strawberries, each guest will find something they love.

Of course, we included a gorgeous, hand-crafted wedding cake, because we really can’t have a wedding without one. Some of our couples choose a smaller, two-tier cake to accompany the many dessert choices.

The Wedding Cake

Let’s start with the wedding cake.

Each petal of these sugar flowers was hand cut and attached to wire to form a flower.

The edible gold paint makes a statement and adds glamour to the table, and painting over the sprinkles creates a great texture.

We love the look of these bowls filled with the many macaron favors. Two stacked cake stand create tiers for the mini cupcakes and white chocolate covered strawberries.

Linzer tarts were the perfect addition for a different flavor option. These heart-shaped centers work well for a wedding!

Since we make desserts all day every day, we couldn’t include everything on the tables.We also recommend monogram cookies, large cookies, platters of petit fours, a fresh fruit platter, macaron pops….. we have a pretty large selection.

Coffee Station

We just revamped our coffee station, and we’re excited for the professional look this will add to our weddings!

Decor

For our coffee station we used vintage teacups, saucers, creamer, and sugar bowl to match our fun theme.

The dessert table uses vintage hobnail milk glass bowls and cake stands to create a light color scheme.

Pineapples and Palm Leaves Party

Gold Pineapple themed bridal shower with palm leaves and naked cake by Cafe Pierrot

For this bridal shower, the bride wanted her fiance to join her. He was more excited about the kitchen gadgets than she was, and so a joint-shower was planned.

Inspired by our Hawaiian Theme menu, the Maid of Honor planned a classy luau  shower without the typical bright floral prints, leis, and Hawaiian shirts.

The dessert table was the focal point of the event with hand-cut palm leaves and gold spray-painted pineapples. She added white hydrangeas to our classic naked cake, per the bride’s request.

Full-Service Summer Wedding

Barbecues might be one of our favorite things about summer. Combine them with a great couple, and you have the perfect laid-back summer wedding.

The couple owns a horse farm in Northern New Jersey and wanted to showcase their property by holding the ceremony and reception on site. She chose the rustic burlap, lace, and sunflower theme for centerpieces and decor.

We coordinated all the rentals – tent, dance floor, bar, linens, tables and chairs – and added some finishing touches to support the theme.

Sweet 16 cakes allow so much room for creativity. We’ve had so many different themes, and this cake is one of our favorites lately!

The sombreros, tacos, and blanket are all made of fondant! The floral and swirl decoration is hand drawn with buttercream inspired by the traditional Mexican embroidery used on clothing.
