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.

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.
