Alternatives to the Candy Bar
In addition to the cake, couples also like to have a dessert bar presentation. This could be anywhere ranging from a selection of cupcakes (a hot trend), mini desserts, cookies, candy, candy apples, donuts, etc. While many guests will indulge in desserts at the reception, this can also serve as the take home favor if you provide glassine bags or cake boxes. A coffee/cappuccino bar is also a great addition to go along with the sweets.
Another option would be to replace the wedding cake with multiple mini cakes for each guest. These can either be used as a centerpiece or individually packaged as a take home. But keep in mind that the cost might add up since each one needs to be decorated.
One of our favorite alternatives to the candy bar are Porch Pies. Porch Pies’ are Southern Delicacies. Baked fresh and hand delivered to your event – each pie is a taste of the deep south and is made from our family’s heirloom recipes passed down from generations of grandmothers and great aunts.
