Wedding Cake? Dessert Bar? Choices!
When I am asked what my favorite part of a wedding or wedding reception is, I immediately say the wedding cake! I know it should be the bride and groom or the ceremony. But I will do about anything for a great piece of wedding cake (or really any sort of dessert.) So that is why I have been looking into the latest trends when it comes to your reception dessert. There are still many brides who will continue to follow tradition with a five tiered cake. But if you are not that bride, move over wedding cake because there is a new trend catching on: dessert bars. What are they you ask? Imagine a table with different dessert options available for you to feast on; it is a sugar lover’s dream. Consider it: mini canapés, dessert shooter (alcoholic and non-alcoholic,) cupcakes, cake-pops…and the newest rage wine infused cake balls! The Sioux Falls Convention Center prides itself on its fantastic wedding dessert bars…and the newest trend to hit the wineries; the wine infused cake balls, I think we ought to try that don’t you? Not only are the dessert bars a way to offer something for everyone but it also looks fantastic. It will be a focal point in your reception room. So say the dessert bar is not your “thing” what if you were to choose desserts that tie into your heritage or a family tradition (example: Kuchen, baklava or maybe Grandma’s cookies.) Or if you want to provide an interactive dessert station, consider one of the following: sundae station, caramel apple station, cheesecake station or a float station. Your guests will love that they get to create their own personal desserts. At the Sioux Falls Convention Center we pride ourselves in creating a unique and memorable experience for your guests. And they will certainly be walking away WOW’D if they were able to dip a Granny Smith Apple in warm caramel and roll it into crushed nuts or M&M’s. Yum, I am getting hungry just thinking about it! Here at the Convention Center if you can imagine it we will help to figure out how to achieve it. We are always putting together new concepts for modern dessert ideas…especially for wedding receptions! Please give me or Jessica a call today, and we will be happy to assist you in putting together a dessert concept that is uniquely yours!
