If you are planning a spring wedding you can opt for a traditional stack wedding cake featuring layers of tiers with piping and flowers, such as these trendy wedding cakes for you to get inspired or these wedding cakes with creative designs.
Or you can choose an unconventional route with black wedding cakes and show-stopping geometric wedding cakes, which are definitely becoming a trend. Other wedding cake trends include the cascade wedding cake and A Dessert Trend We’re Loving Right Now: Mosaic Wedding Cakes well as stained-glass wedding cakes, these candy-covered wedding cakes, and these contemporary wedding cakes almost too cool to cut into.
Then again if you decide not to have a wedding cake at all in favor of an alternative wedding dessert you will be in good company. From donuts and macarons, chocolate sundaes and brownies to candy bars and s’mores to pies and ice cream, wedding desserts other than wedding cake are increasingly being served, such as these 14 Wedding Dessert Ideas That Aren’t Cake, these Yummy Wedding Desserts for the Fun Artistic Bride and these 39 Fruit and Berry Wedding Desserts.
Here are 10 pretty pastel desserts for a spring soiree, from Colin Cowie Weddings:
Spring welcomes in a fresh season, new blooms, and of course, pastel colors! These light and bright hues always look so lovely, so why not appeal to more than just one of the senses? We’ve found some of the most adorable and delectable pastel desserts to tempt your taste buds. Whether you like cake, cookies, or candy, read on to satisfy your sweet tooth!
1. 1. Cheerful Cakes
Rainbow layers are the perfect solution to March’s Saint Patrick’s Day and April’s showers. If every rainbow led to a rainbow cake, we know we’d be sure to follow!
2. 2. Darling Donuts
We can’t resist these pastel treats! Stack them high or serve with ice cold milk – either way, you can’t lose.
3. 3. Iridescent Ice Cream Cones
These little cones are almost too cute to eat! We love the idea of topping them with coordinating pastel sprinkles.
4. 4. Clouds of Cotton Candy
These pastel puffs may be light and airy, but still pack a sugary punch! Try serving glasses of cotton candy and have champagne poured over the top while guests watch in awe as it melts away.
5. 5. Cuter Than A Cookie Cutter
Gems, hearts, and cones – anyway you cut it, we’d like to take a bite out of these cookies! For a great party favor, wrap a few in cellophane or put them in a jar for guests to take as they leave.
6. 6. Marvelous Macarons
Eating these French delicacies always makes us feel a bit fancier! Macaroons are easily customizable, so have your baker match the cookies to your wedding’s color palette.
7. 7. Kaleidoscopic Meringues
Fluffy and oh so sweet, meringues are a tasty treat. If you’re planning an Easter brunch, prepare these in advance so you can have plenty for your sugar-craving guests!
8. 8. Glittering Chocolate Gems
For the chocolate lover, white chocolate can be made into any color or shape you dream of! Truffles shaped like gems and jewels would be a charming addition to an engagement party.
9. 9. Colorful Cake Pops
Cake pops make for a delectable pop of color at any party. As a fun surprise, make different colored pops different types of cake.
10. 10. Delightful Dessert Tables
A desert table can be the pièce de résistance to any celebration. Why have a single dessert when you can offer the full pastel pastry rainbow?
