An avid cook, crafter, and baker, Blake Lively envisioned an abundant dessert table overflowing with their favorite treats. The focal point was their vanilla-and-sour-cream wedding cake with peach-apricot preserves and Earl Grey-milk chocolate buttercream made by Maggie Austin Cake in Alexandria, Virginia.
We've rounded up our favorite dessert tables from featured real weddings, including sweets of all sorts on tables of all styles.
A large arbor framed the dessert display at this outdoor reception in Port Gamble, Washington. Embellished with another custom sign for a bit more personality, it perfectly framed the cupcakes and the stunning view of the bluff and the water below.
Unable to narrow down their favorite desserts, this quirky couple opted to serve them all: caramel apples, scones, baklava, pies, pastries, and donuts. The confections came from Whole Foods Market and Apple Hill or were baked by the groom's mom.
The banner above read, "These are a few of our favorite things."
The dessert table at this Colorado Spring wedding, adorned with a pennant-flag garland and small flower arrangements, held small treats including macarons and mini pecan pies. The piece de resistance: a two- tier cake -- zucchini lime with lime curd filling, and red velvet with cream cheese filling -- created by Intriciate Icings.
A two-tier vanilla cake, covered with buttercream frosting and garden roses, sat on an antique pedestal that this Texas bride purchased on Etsy.com. It was framed by vases of pincushion proteas and hydrangeas, and was just one of the sweets guests sank their teeth into. Also on offer? Berry tarts, petits fours, and dark-chocolate tortes.
