In addition to the wedding cake, some couples provide a dessert buffet of delicate pastries, petite cakes, cookies, exquisite chocolates and other delectable treats that allows guests to choose the desserts they like and serves as a stunning display at the same time. Your baker and local candy shop can provide a delicious array of items certain to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Confections can also double as favors. Hand-dipped chocolates, nuts, mints or other candies wrapped in tulle, lace, or tucked into a beautifully adorned miniature box make a delightful gift and a lovely table decoration. Specialty chocolate and candy shops have a variety of choices for these tasty treats, some even offer personalized imprinted boxes or ribbon to top off these fanciful favors.
