What's a dessert table?
A dessert table is one of the hottest wedding trends this season, and just involves a whole selection of beautiful desserts for your guests to admire (and eat of course!).

What should I put on it?
Anything goes, but some good ideas are cupcakes, cookies, cake-pops, meringues, and maybe even one tiered cake for impact

Isn't that expensive?
Well, yes, if you have everything made professionally, but why not get your friends involved? Ask all the most talented bakers you know to do you a dessert each, and pile them up high!

Will I need one main cake?
One main, tiered cake is a nice centrepiece, but it's certainly not essential. A whole selection of homemade single tier cakes will look just as good.

How should I decorate it?
Ask your venue to set up a table for you, and find a pretty cloth to cover it. You can use glass cake stands and beautiful vintage crockery to make it look really special, or add colour with pretty flowers.

How can I make it look extra special?
Decorate above and around your table with bunting or paper decorations, and sticking to one main colour (for example white, like in the photo above) adds real impact.
