Desserts in a Dish

I know not everyone out there is a fan of cake – and there are no rules you have to have a cake at your wedding (pretty evident by all the weddings we’ve shared here where the couple had pie, donuts, ice cream or just a dessert table with lots of options!) There are so many ideas out there and you should pick what you as a couple love for dessert. :) A trend I’ve been loving at some of my favorite restaurants here in LA are desserts served in small jars. The perfect serving of something amazing – and so many ways to bring this trend into your day. Some of my favorites are below (and most link to the recipe) so you could make this ahead of time or share with your baker.
