1. Hand Crafted Ice cream Sandwiches: Nestled between a unique ice cream flavor like pumpkin, imagine a buttery shortbread ice cream sandwich for a twist on a dessert staple. Or even a traditional chocolate chip cookie and vanilla ice cream sandwich dipped in a sprinkle of crushed peppermint candy canes for an indulgent winter wedding in Philadelphia.

2. Cheesecake Lollipops: Good for any event, white or dark chocolate dipped rounds of dreamy creamy cheesecake on a stick is perfect for a bite or two (or three…)

3. Banana Foster Action Station: Watch your guests gather around in anticipation. If the caramelization of bananas and that sweet buttery rum aroma isn’t enough to grab guests’ attention… like moths to a flame then the entertainment of a brief live action dessert sauté will draw them in.  Pair it with fresh vanilla bean ice cream.

4. Mason Jar Pies or Cakes: Perfect for wedding party favors, the layers of rich red velvet cake layered between rich homemade cream cheese frosting (kind of like a mini trifle) are sealed for freshness and enjoyment later.  Not only do they look decadent but may not last the car ride home. Pie in a mason jar practically screams rustic wedding favor.

5. Individual Pies: Because sharing is…well…a touchy subject for some of us when it comes to sweets! The pie bar is a nice idea but consider individual pies and no one gets hurt.

6. Hot Donut Station: Fresh warm donuts right off the press. They practically melt in your mouth. Donuts, cro-nuts, these luscious treats will draw a crowd. A perfect fall or winter wedding idea for when you crave comfort food!

Hopefully, these selections will bring you closer to a unique dessert idea for your Philadelphia wedding.
