    Neither me or H like cake so we had 4 different types of pie (French Silk, Florida Key Lime, Michigan 4-Berry and Peanut Butter & Chocolate). It was delicious.

    Cake and cupcakes. The cake was vegan (so I could eat it) and the cupcakes were non-vegan (since I wasn't going to bake a cake for over 100 people!)

    Cake, and here's a tip for future brides:

    The dinner or lunch menus offered to you by your venue ALREADY INCLUDE A DESSERT because these are the menus that they offer to everyone:  charity luncheons, fundraiser balls, etc.

    So if you sign a contract for the dinner menu AS IS, you are paying for the dessert AND then you will pay for your wedding cake to be served later on in the evening.  The venue will add a CUTTING fee, sometimes called a PLATING fee, for their staff to cut and serve your cake.

    BUT...

    If you TAKE OFF THE DESSERT from the prepared menu, then the waitstaff will cut and serve YOUR CAKE AS THE DESSERT TO THE MEAL, and you won't pay an additional CUTTING fee.

    We had cheesecake as the plated dessert, then cake later on (plus other sweet treats - cookies, brownies, fruit - at the late evening snack table).

    <div>This is probably the deal at your venue, but all venues are different.  Our venue has meal packages, some come with dessert, some don't.  There is not cake cutting fee regardless of what package you choose.  This was a pretty weird post- not everyone has the same circumstances. </div>

    My own wedding plans are in the works, but at my sister's wedding (catered by our family), we had one small cake for the sweetheart table for my sister and her husband. Everyone else got dessert plate with a chocolate covered strawberry, an edible chocolate box filled with chocolate mousse, and something else I cannot for the life of me remember! It was very elegant and tons of guests commented on how much they enjoyed it.

    My fiancé and I both hate cake and candy. I want to do jello and pie. If I could eliminate dessert completely, I would. I'm more of a salt-lover than a sweet-lover anyway.
