Like I mentioned in our post about non-traditional wedding cake ideas, we aren’t cake people, so for Jared’s groom’s cake, we opted for a donut bar wedding. Jared LOVES donuts and this was a unique way to showcase his personality and honestly it was a hit! People were immediately standing in line and the whole bar was licked clean! We had every flavor from Oreo to fruity pebbles to cinnamon roll.
We had a local food truck (Dough Boy) cater the donuts. They served them hot and fresh an hour before the wedding. Since it was a food truck, they parked in the parking lot right outside of the reception and made all of the donuts fresh. I think most of the guests were impressed that the donuts were hot and fresh from the oven and being replenished as fast as they were being eaten.
We displayed the donuts on a variety of platters, dowel rod holders and custom bags made to take back to their table or to take for the road.
To help differentiate the flavors, we had small signs with hand lettering and spruced up the table with leftover greenery from the florist.
