Sugary, cinnamony, crunchy, and yummy! Who doesn’t love a good churro? This is a great option if you are having a Cinco De Mayo themed wedding, or just if churros are your favorite dessert. I mean, do you really need a reason to eat churros?

Cinnamon Roll Cake

This is my personal favorite! Whether you are having a traditional wedding or a brunch themed wedding, who wouldn’t want to dive into a giant, ooey gooey cinnamon roll!?


Perfect for the summer wedding, pies are always a favorite! Whether you decide to have tiered pies with different fillings or have individual mini pies or pie pops for your guests, this dessert is sure to be a hit!


Just the thought of a pancake cake is making me hungry! The fluffiness of the pancakes topped off with whipped cream and fresh berries will certainly have your guests asking for more. Pancake cakes are great for any wedding but go really well with boho or brunch themed weddings. 


Your guests are sure to enjoy sampling this creative dessert! Whether you choose a gigantic cookie cake or tiers upon tiers of you and your spouse’s favorite cookie, this is sure to bring an element of fun to your reception. Add a table of chilled glasses of milk so your guests can really indulge by dunking their cookies in milk!


Donut wedding cakes have been trending on Pinterest, and we can certainly see why! You can create tiers of different types of donuts, or have one giant donut from your favorite bakery.

Your special day deserves an equally special dessert. Have any other ideas for a sweet treat? Tweet us your suggestions @revweddingfilms!
