Have Katie Aldrich excite your next big event with a dessert bar!

Something big this era!

Dessert Bars!

They are becoming ever more popular this era with new modern brides doing away with the wedding cake entirely!  I have done a few blogs on wedding cakes and the modern brides having candy bars in addition to their wedding cake and even cupcakes and other cake desserts instead of a wedding cake, but no cake at all?  How odd. 

Found on my website,, I have the history and tradition of the wedding cake:

The Wedding Cake
You might find it interesting that; originally, the cake was not eaten by but thrown at the bride! It developed as one of the many fertility traditions surrounding a wedding. Wheat too, is traditionally a symbol of fruitfulness and was among the earliest grains (predating rice) to be ceremoniously showered on the bride and groom. In its earliest origins, the unmarried young women attending the wedding were expected to scramble for the grains to ensure their own betrothals, much as they do today for the bridal bouquet.
Early Roman bakers, we are told, changed the "throw it" to the "eat it" tradition. These bakers were distinguished and respected in their trades. Somewhere around 100 BCE they began taking the wedding wheat and creating small, sweet cakes with it; the cakes were eaten while the service was in progress.

So for all my modern brides out there here are some lovely, creative bite sized delicious yummies for your dessert bar!
