10 fantastic mini dessert ideas for weddings

Aside from being a super cute – and seriously Instagram worthy, mini desserts are a great way to provide a wider and more exciting variety of sweet treats for wedding guests.

Here are some mini dessert ideas that are small in size but big in flavour.

Cake pops

Cake pops are one of the first desserts that started the ‘mini’ trend, and the best thing about them, aside from how cute they are, is that you can get a taste of cake without having to commit to an entire slice!
