9. Mini-Wedding Cakes
For a trend your guests are sure to love – send them home with a cake of their own! Choose a smaller cake for the ceremonial cake cutting, and give mini-cakes as wedding favors, like these kosher cakes by My Chocolate Sunflower in Long Island, NY.
10. Wedding Cake Skewers
According to Ellen Vaknine from Esprit Events Kosher Catering, many couples are asking how to serve their wedding cake. While it’s still popular to serve it family style, or set up a table with pre-cut slices, Ellen suggests a fun alternative that we’re loving! Create Wedding Cake Skewers! You can serve these “cake kebobs” as a passed dessert, or add it to your dessert buffet presentation.
