Most of the time, the bride tends to have the heavier hand in the wedding planning process. This can often times leave the groom without a say or his taste really showing through. That's why we love the trend of having a groom cake at your wedding! A groom cake is a smaller cake you serve along side your traditional wedding cake that is designed by the groom himself. This cake can reflect his style or personality in a theme of his choosing! Looking for inspiration for your groom cake? Check out some of our favorites below.

Unique Wedding Desserts

After indulging in the main entrée, it’s time for the most delicious part of the meal…the dessert! While most brides choose to serve the traditional cake, tiered and full of different layered flavors, there’s alternative options for equally delicious desserts to serve your guests!

What a fun twist on the classic wedding cake! Cake pops have become a trending dessert, and they’re super easy to make (and eat)! Have a variety of flavors and decorations for your guests to choose from; the possibilities are endless!

Go the alternative route and offer nature’s candy to your guests – that’s right, fruit! Top the fruit with some whipped cream for extra sweetener, or if you can’t get yourself to stray away from chocolate (because I mean, who can say no to chocolate?!), offer a chocolate fountain to dip the fruit in! Yum!

Can’t decide on just one fun and unique dessert? Why not offer them ALL to your guests?! By having a dessert buffet, your guests will be able to pick and choose what they would like to indulge in after their meal, whether it be cake, assorted fruit, or pie!

You can make mouthwatering s’mores cupcakes topped with a marshmallow frosting and graham cracker crumbs, or gooey s’mores bars! Here’s one of our favorite s’mores twists – S’mores Dip!
