Dress up your delicious dessert display with something more than just cake! We don’t mean cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, candies, doughnuts, and pies, we mean decorations like signs and bunting banners that say “Let Them Eat!” and “Sweet Love,” monogrammed initials, vintage suitcases and books, or even globes. Maybe add glasses of milk or flutes of champagne too? Don’t forget the straws and cocktail napkins. See more photos here.

A wedding cake isn’t complete without a topper! Whether it’s a tiny version of you and your significant other in the shape of a silhouette or form of a family heirloom, a crafty bunting banner, animals (like pigs, hedgehogs, giraffes, or birds — yes, we’ve seen them all), or as simple as fresh flowers, you’ll want to browse our photo gallery for even more inspiration.

It was a super sweet year filled with all types of baker’s confections! From Zia and Coley’s cheese (yes, rounds) cake and Ally and Jeff’s naked cake topped with fresh strawberries to Carolina and Benjamin’s Day of the Dead-themed cake complete with skeletons and Maggie and Jason’s Auntie Anne’s soft pretzel-shaped cake, we couldn’t keep our stomachs from growling. Check out more of our top picks here.

This has been the great cake debate for years now — sugar flowers vs. fresh flowers. What are the pros and cons? Sugar flowers allow for the wedding cake to be completely edible, but it’s quite labor extensive. Fresh flowers are the opposite. Less labor extensive, but depending on the season, you can only get certain flowers imported. You’ll also want to make sure that they are pesticide-free. All in all, both provide a wow factor! So, we’ll let you decide. For more cake inspiration, visit our photo gallery here.

Most couples these days are opting to have other desserts at their reception in addition to or in lieu of a wedding cake. Why? Because it also doubles as a favor! Consider displaying different kinds of cupcake flavors and icings, but make sure to label (in case some guests have food allergies) and top with fun flags that say, “I do.” See more ideas in our photo gallery here.
