More Suggestions from Sofia’s Cakes!

  • Have a candy station or dessert bar to complement your wedding cake.  You can have your wedding cake as a centerpiece, and an assortment of sweets, treats, or even giveaways all around it, on a table styled according to your theme.
  • For slightly larger weddings, have a similar 1-tier cake distributed to each table for sharing.  You can even have different flavors if you so wish.
  • Have cupcakes made to look like your main wedding cake, or at least have similar design elements from it.  You can use these cupcakes as additional decor for your venue, as welcome gifts, prizes for your games and activities, or as wedding souvenirs.
