Ask Maggie: Wedding Dessert Alternatives

RWC Reader: I am looking to serve something different than wedding cake at my rustic style wedding. I am going to have a small cake for my fiance and I to cut at the reception but I am looking for some creative dessert options.


Well if dessert ideas are what you want than you are in luck RWC reader because it just so happens that the only thing that I might like more than weddings is sweets, in fact I have a huge sweet tooth. There is no right or wrong when it comes to desserts so let your imagination go and enjoy the sweets!
