19 More Mini Sweets and Desserts

You can never have too much dessert, so for the foodies with a sweet tooth, here are more mini sweets and delicacies you can add to your event menu.

Some event layouts merely cannot accommodate dining or seating which makes feeding attendees difficult without losing space (and ultimately occupancy). Finger food and canape-only catering options for events help food go further, but it can be harder to find that perfect dessert that is both miniature and delicious that still leaves guests feeling satisfied. These ideas meet all of that criteria and most are accessible without cutlery or plates, making the planning (and clean up) easy and hassle free.

  1. Lavender Financier

These mini French cakes are fairly popular and are also known as almond cakes because they use ground or almond flour to give them a new taste or texture. This is the perfect example of how sprucing up an old idea can work wonders for your catering, like with this lavender and gourmet edible painted topping.

  1. Macarons

A current trend and favourite is the macaron, which are growing in popularity because they are delicious, small and compact but a delicacy to perfect! You can use these for making towers and cake displays or alternatively have them branded with logos or made using your event colours to keep on theme. For a fun, fresh change to desserts, you could offer alternative flavors and different colors with these sweet meringue-based confections, for example rose, orange blossom, pistachio and salted caramel.

  1. Baby Bundt Cakes

Traditionally a Bundt cake is brought by guests for the hostess at fairly informal affairs but these miniature versions are stunning variations that can be served to guests without being too filling or heavy, making them perfect for the summer!

Happy Valentines Day everyone ❤️ celebrating with some delicious red velvet bundt cakes

  1. Stuffed Doughnuts

Just because they are small, doesn’t mean they can’t be filling (or have filling!). Miniature doughnuts are always a hit but these stuffed Nutella versions are a decadent delight if you are looking to spoil attendees with a heavy treat.
