Finding the perfect desserts for your Cheshire wedding day reception can be more tricky than expected!
Whether you’re looking for something light and fresh to follow a slightly heavier meal, or something warm and comforting for an icy winter wedding. Some couples opt for a dessert that ties in with the days themes and colour schemes while others prefer complimenting the rest of their wedding day menu.
Our top 5 dessert ideas will get you well on your way to choosing your very own show stopping sweet!
The crowd pleaser
A classic cheesecake is often understated. Its simplicity in appearance can add a touch of elegance and keep your guests from feeling overwhelmed after their previous courses. However, lets not underestimate the flavours of a perfectly executed cheese cake. Rich and creamy with a complimentary crunchy base and a never ending choice of toppings and flavours makes it a great crowd pleaser.
After months of diet and gruelling workouts for those beautiful wedding photos, nothing spells heaven like tucking into a slice of mouth watering chocolate fudge cake or brownie. After all who doesn’t love chocolate? Teamed up with fresh cream or smooth vanilla ice cream and you are guaranteed to have a winning dessert!
Light and fruity
On a beautiful summers day what could be more vibrant and refreshing than meringues or brandy snap baskets topped with the freshest cream and berries. You can even jazz it up with a sweet berry compote or get creative with your fruits for an individual touch. After a long, hot day this is a summer favourite!
A fair chunk of your wedding budget and your planning time will be spent on your wedding cake. Choosing the shape, size, colours and designs. Not forgetting making up the tiers with the best selection of cake flavours. This is why many couples decide to serve up their wedding cake for dessert. An ideal way to cut the waste and make sure your wedding cake gets the appreciation it deserves.
By the end of your meal most guests are chatting away and enjoying the company of everyone around the table. The wine is flowing the room is full of laughter and all your loved ones beaming with joy. This makes our table sharer dessert a perfect finishing touch. Why not try miniature dipping doughnuts with a selection of table dips? Or even chocolate fondue teamed up with a platter of fruits, cakes and other goodies for your guests to dip.
