Our gourmet bakery cupcakes come in mini or regular sizes and in flavors such as white almond, wedding cake, raspberry lace, red velvet, chocolate addiction, peanut butter cup, confetti, caramel sea salt, and mocha espresso. Plus, you can order them online for next-day pickup.

  17. Wall of Donuts

    Looking for an alternative to cake? Of all the wedding dessert trends we've seen over the years, donuts have to be the best, right? We stand by it ... especially if they're freshly fried and glazed (which ours are). 

  18. Favors with Flavor

    Send 'em home with something sweet instead. Fresh fried donuts might be—no, it definitely is—our favorite party favor of all time. What better way to say "thanks"?
