DIY Wedding Dessert Table Tutorial Cake

I couldn’t be more excited than to share with you a project I worked on over the weekend with you today. In the past I have put together a fair few DIY tutorials for Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, I even crafted for my own wedding. In my spare time I love to get creative, whether it be with my children as it so often is these days, or with my crochet hook, styling my home and indulging in my love of flowers. So when Hobbycraft got in touch to see if I wanted to collaborate I was so excited to express my love of creating and crafting, any excuse hey! I loving nothing more than browsing their aisles for crafty items and getting inspired by their offerings. It’s always a successful shopping outing as they have everything you can think of.

 

DIY Wedding Dessert Table

 

I decided to create a DIY dessert table set up. It’s not so much a trend to have a cake or dessert table at weddings any longer, but more a must have element. I mean who doesn’t love cake? And dessert tables can also double up as pudding, which can certainly be helpful on the budget side of things. I am hearing of more and more couples, especially you lovely readers, either making your own bakes or asking loved ones to bring along a treat for a cake table. So I thought a dessert table DIY tutorial would hopefully help you to plan out your tasty treats and ensure they look totally awesome too!

What Do You Need

 

Here is exactly what you need to recreate the dessert table;

 

DIY Tissue Paper Balloon Tassels

 

This is one of the few crafts I haven’t DIYd before. I couldn’t believe how quick, easy and satisfying it was to make these pretties. Now those Multi-Coloured Confetti Balloons are things of dreams, I mean they are HUGE and filled to the brim with the prettiest confetti. But the tassels totally finished them off to perfection. In fact, I’d quite like them hanging around my home for a good while yet. I am going to be whipping these up for future celebrations that’s for sure. These are perfect for those craft making parties as chit chat and tissue paper crafting is a win win scenario in my book.

1. To begin, get one piece of Raspberry and Pink Tissue Paper and cut the sheet in half. Then fold in half lengthways.

2. Carefully snip strips along the sheet leaving at least a couple of centimetres at the top of the folded edge. TOP TIP: I actually cut several sheets of tissue paper in one time by layering up on top of one another and holding firmly.

Styling the Wedding Dessert Table

 

So you have your cakes and bakes ready and waiting, you have your balloons inflated and perfectly tasselled up. Next it’s  time for putting the table together and arranging to perfection.

I chose the stands and items to create a cool mismatched feel. I really loved the Donut Wall on first sight, the calligraphy lettering and kraft card are so on trend. Donuts can be picked up anywhere and the stand really makes a great impact and much needed differing height level to my table. It was super quick and easy to assemble. Being flat pack also means it’s easy to store pre wedding.

The Wood Round Slice added to the rustic feel, then for a mix in texture and style I decided on the Glazed White Cake Stand and the Glass Dome Cake Stand.

For the centrepiece cake, once assembled and decorated, I used the Glazed White Cake Stand for added height and pure show-stopping wow factor. This was placed into the centre of the table to ensure emphasis was placed on it being the main wedding cake for cutting. The other cakes and treats were then placed organically on the table, in front of the donuts.

For the finishing touches, I wanted to add cake toppers. Hobbycraft have so much choice but I really thought the Mr and Mrs Kraft Cake Bunting would be perfect for my naked cake creation.

Then of course, if there are any left overs from your amazing array of treats, then guests can scoop up some dessert to take home, thanks to these super stylish Rose Gold Candy Bags. I thought the lettering would match in well with the donut wall too.

It just goes to show that good planning, brilliant items and an enjoyment for craft can create something really marvellous. What’s more is that Hobbycraft have so much choice and an array of styles, that I can guarantee every wedding dessert table would look totally different from the next. Amazing! xo Lou
