Designer Wedding Cakes - Wedding cakes are being turned into bona fide works of art right from inky black wedding cakes to floating tiers, watercolor floral to rustic finish, tile-inspired print to edible flowers, modern art to macaroons & tarts and so much more. We also create 3D designs and thematic cakes based on a couple’s personality.

Waffle Sundaes - A scoop out of your favourite ice cream, a melt in mouth hot fudge over a crisp waffle is every dessert lover’s paradise. Topped with berries and sprinkles, this quintessential breakfast item is not just a breakfast item anymore but speaks volumes about comfort and nostalgia.

Doughnuts - Glazed or frosted, sugary classic or hot melted chocolate-based, Doughnuts are millennials’ favourite. A multi-tier cake or a doughnut wall could be a great way of enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the dessert.

Churros and Hot Chocolate - A churros and hot chocolate station for a winter wedding is match made in heaven. Churros, the Spanish delight works perfectly with various hot chocolate flavours right from cinnamon to hazelnut.

Healthy Parfaits - Fruit or yogurt-based, parfaits are a favourite of all our health-conscious guests. Also, they are gluten-free and gorgeously delicious.

Guests love to experiment over ‘DoIt Yourself Dessert stations’ where they can customise their favourite desserts according to their taste and preferences. With multiple accompaniments to choose right from ice creams, sauces, nuts, berries, cookie crumbles, and choco chips, this is both personal and fun.

Another trend that is a hot favourite amongst the guests is the ‘Pass-around desserts’ so that the guests can take a bite and step back to the dance floor again.

‘End of the evening drink stations’ in the form of hot chocolates, specialty coffee, and tea stations, Ice Cream floaters, healthy smoothies is a great way to up the wedding dessert game. Also, it is very instagrammable.

Guests also look for ‘healthier dessert’ options for a guilt-free indulgence. Gluten-free and vegan desserts have gained immense popular i ty. Guests look for organic ingredients and natural flavours.

Interestingly, ‘alcohol-infused drinks and desserts’ are enchanting our guests a lot. While last year, Matcha ruled the dessert trend, this year ‘Asian flavours’ will continue to play supreme role in the world of desserts.
