Creating A Dessert Bar

Jan 01, 2020

A sweet ending to the evening’s celebrations, a dessert bar is certainly an enjoyable way to conclude an evening of good food and merriment.

A number of vendors now offer such a service :

  • Cake designer.
  • Decorator.
  • Wedding planner.

Desserts galore

Some couples may also go the DIY route and take on the task of setting up the dessert bar with the help of family and friends. One trend that has also emerged is for cake designers to offer pre-determined packages that couples, decorators and wedding planners can order, thereby eliminating their need to worry about the ‘food’ component of the bar and focus only on the presentation and décor.

If you decide on ordering a pre-determined package of sweets and savouries and setup the dessert bar on your own, discuss the following :

  • Price points and deliverables.
  • Number of packages required to cater to the size of your guest list.
  • Selection of sweets and savouries to choose from.
  • Logistics of collection or delivery.
  • Lead time required.
