This photo sums it up!
I have such a sweet tooth. It’s a problem, really. I just have an insatiable appetite for all things chocolatey and sugary. As an aspiring nutritionist, this is probably not something to talk about. If there is ever one place to go off the sweets deep end, it’s your wedding, and I’m taking full advantage of that. And I’m hoping to be so thin anyway [wedding dress prep, see my exercise plan here & my diet plan here] that even if I gain 5 pounds due to my sweets overload I’ll still be in good shape!
Because of my sweet tooth, I knew just a wedding cake was not going to be enough of the sugary stuff to suffice. So instead of just having one option, I’m going to feature many options at our sweets bar! I’ve seen the idea a lot lately and I just fell for how clever and cute it is and how you can easily manipulate it to fit any theme. I’m also SUPER excited because my mother, who is a baker extraordinaire, is going to be making 95% of the sweets! That way they will be unique to us and unique to her! Although I’m not sure what she’s going to make, below are a few of my favorite sweet bar ideas. I do warn you though, you will have a serious sweet craving after you are done!
