In recent years, trendy sweets and desserts that are putting a contemporary spin on traditional Indian desserts are outshining traditional Gujarati wedding food. In addition to a delicious Gujarati feast for the wedding party, young couples are now wanting to serve their guests a smorgasbord of amazing desserts to finish off the meal.
Where menus used to feature traditional sweets like Gajar Halwa with ice cream or Gulab Jamun, they are also adding trendy displays of doughnuts, fruit, and a bevvy of tasty treats to suit all tastes.
After the main course and a trip to the dance floor, guests are now expecting to sit down to a dessert that perfectly finishes off the special occasion.
Whether you’re looking for dessert ideas for your wedding or are just a dessert fanatic, here are some creative dessert ideas for Asian weddings.
If you’re unsure about what desserts your guests might like or if you have a lot of guests with dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarians, or vegans then a dessert table is the way to go. Offer a dessert table with a variety of sweet treats such as cakes, vegan desserts, and fun desserts that guests of all ages will enjoy. With a dessert table, there will always be something for everyone to enjoy.
If you want to create a playful display of desserts, then a doughnut wall is the way to go. The doughnuts can even be decorated according to your wedding’s colour scheme, and you can choose which flavours you want – chocolate glazed, custard-filled, with sprinkles, and many more! Whichever ones you decide on, you can be sure your guests will love this and be making multiple visits back to the cool doughnut wall.
A fresh fruit display is a simple but elegant choice for your Asian wedding dessert. Unique and beautiful fruit displays are an emerging trend at Indian weddings. There are countless combinations and colours of fruit to be used: vibrant strawberries, kiwis, grapes, melons, bananas, and watermelons which can be chopped and arranged on a table in a mehndi design or matching wedding theme and colour.
Gulab jamun are sweet, fried dough balls that are soaked in sugar syrup that are typically served alone. For a tasty twist, serve with ice cream and sprinkle some grated coconut on top.
To make the classic Gajar Halwa (or Carrot Halwa) even more decadent, sprinkle chopped pistachios and almonds on it before serving. Halwa is a warm dessert made with milk, sugar, ghee, and carrots.
