How Many Wedding Desserts Do You Need?

It’s safe to say that planning a wedding is one of the most hectic, tiring and wonderful things you will ever do. There is a lot of pressure to get everything right but with some help from us, hopefully, we’ll take some weight off your shoulders.

Now, it’s important to remember that just because it’s a wedding, your guests aren’t restricted to just cake. There’s an array of options that are as unique as the love you shared with your partner, right at your fingertips. We offer a wide variety of sweet treats that give you, as a couple, the opportunity to show off some of your personality and character through how you choose to end your meal. Whether you decide to go for a single or a trio dessert – if it’s from Green Fig Catering it’s going to go down a treat!

Trio of Wedding Desserts

One thing that we love to do is to create a delicious batch trio wedding dessert. These always seem to go down a treat and we often have people raving to us about them once their plates have been devoured. We work with you to put forward 3 different desserts having flavours that complement each other wonderfully.  By offering additional flavours we ensure that at least something on the plate is well received by your guests.

Anything from soft, creamy, delightful ice cream to a warm chocolate brownie with strawberries. We have something for all tastes and preferences. We’re also more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements because nobody wants to miss out on dessert; especially when they look as good as ours do.  After all, they say 3 is the magic number!

The way the flavours fuse together on every dish is simply perfect. In our opinion, any of our dessert trios are the perfect way to end a delicious wedding reception meal.  However, that might just be because we love showing off lots of delights at once!

Single Desserts

You know what they say – if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Single plate desserts are an absolute classic and are still as much loved as ever!

Here are some of our favourites:

Strawberry Eton Mess

Eton mess is a proper English classic. This simple but gorgeous dessert consists of a homemade meringue, whipped cream, and a mixture of strawberries and other berries. Is there anything better?

Very few desserts give off a summer vibe quite like Eton mess does. If you’re tying the knot when strawberries are in season you just can’t pass up on it. The crunchy meringue paired with the sweetness of the berries is simply divine! And the jus we create to finish it off is sublime.

Crème Brûlée

There’s just something about crème brûlée that draws people in. If you’re dining at a restaurant and you see this delightful dessert on the menu, chances are you’re ordering it.

Crème brûlée has a rich, refreshing vanilla custard with a crunchy caramelised sugar topping.

This wedding dessert is by far one of the most entertaining to eat. The satisfaction in running your spoon across the crispened top and then gently cracking through to expose the creamy custard below never gets old. Our crème brûlée makes the ultimate indulgent dessert.

Chocolate Tart

Another of our popular choices – this chocolate tart is the most decadent and rich of our desserts, but a real crowd pleaser!

Salted Caramel Pecan Pie

If you like pecans then wowzers this is a tasty dessert – alongside the ever trendy salted caramel taste, this is always a winner in our books!

Banoffee Pie

Individual Banoffee Pies

When you talk about classic English desserts then the Banoffee pie is definitely right up there. Born and bred here in East Sussex, we love a bit of banoffee – and so do many of our couples! Fresh sliced banana, oozing toffee, delicious light pastry and all topped with freshly whipped cream…our mouths are already watering!!

Presentation is Key

When it comes to wedding desserts the presentation is absolutely key!  We love unveiling our creative flare when it comes to our wedding desserts. We always take the time to ensure that every plate that leaves our kitchen is decorated with the highest amount of professionalism and care possible. Ensuring every plate looks identical requires a lot of patience and expertise and we love doing it! We believe there’s a real art to making food look too good to eat; we like to think we’ve mastered it!
