Gone are the days of traditional weddings! One of the wedding traditions that I have seen begin to change in Chicago are wedding desserts. People are no longer looking to spend thousands of dollars on multi-tier vanilla wedding cakes to feed the masses. People are getting much more intune with their personality, their tastes, budget and vision. Let’s cheers to these new and yummy dessert trends! I claim that these are “finger lickin’ good!”
TOP 7 WEDDING/EVENT DESSERT TRENDS: (in no particular order) S’mores Bar, Bacon Bar, Build your own Cupcakes, Donut Wall, Pie Bar, Ice Cream Bar & Naked Cake. I am sensing a trend…just put “bar” after it and it becomes a wedding dessert trend!
This was my wedding cake back in 2014…while it is still personally my favorite (insert bias here) people are trending away from this look. Photo cred: Jazi Photo
Private Residence: S’mores Bar
Bacon Bar: who doesn’t LOVE B.A.C.O.N and all of the warm, ooey, gooey toppings to put on it! Photo Cred: Jazi Photo
I met Courtney from A Dash of Joy almost a year ago. She came up with a very unique custom dessert bar concept that has taken over Chicagoland! Check her out!
Walls like this can easily be created, but this is from Johnny Doughnuts
