Celebrating the first meal together as husband and wife, the Wedding Breakfast can be a sumptuous five course meal, or a more intimate buffet dinner for you and your guests. Whatever wedding fare you intend to present, the sweet delicacies you offer will go down a treat with your bridal party, young and old. Get ready to tempt your guests with these ideas…
The Wedding Cake stands centre stage at any wedding feast. Tiered designs of fondant icing and fruit cake take pride of place at many a wedding reception. Delicate sugar flowers and intricate swirling designs are crafted on to the cake by master confectioners. A steady hand is needed, as is an artist’s flourish.
As wedding trends veer away from traditional norms, it is becoming accepted to exude your quirkiness as a couple. This individuality can be applied to your wedding cake. Bespoke wedding cake companies such as The Cake Store provide exclusively designed cakes, matching your colour theme – for example, your bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmens’ cravats – to your cake.
Your creativity is limited only by your imagination!
Whether your guests fancy a pre-dinner nibble or a midnight feast, a chocolate fountain will keep the party coming back for more. Choose from white chocolate or dark chocolate to excite the tastebuds. The table will be decorated with choux buns, marshmallows, strawberries and all manner of mouth watering fruit – to dip into the chocolate fountain.
For those with a serious chocolate addiction, it is possible to buy your own chocolate fountain to set up at home later. Many couples will choose to hire one instead, from a company such as Crystal Chauffeur which also provide event decor and classic car hire.
Cup Cakes & Candy Jars
Cupcakes can always be relied upon to delight those guests in your bridal party with a sweet tastebud, especially the children. The trend this season is for your cake decorator to offer mini cupcakes that match the design of your cake. A more personal option is for the master baker in your household to put their skills to the test for your special day.
There is a great deal of satisfaction to be had from those perfectly formed, freshly baked cupcakes! Finally, what wedding breakfast would be complete without the sweetness of sugar almonds? Candy jars of these traditional wedding favours can become the perfect memento of your wedding. For an extra special touch, My Bride Fairy will personalise mason jars especially for you.
