Trendy Wedding Desserts Local To Spokane


With the large variety of sweet treats, we have today, brides don’t want to settle for a simple wedding cake anymore. They want something extra that their guests will remember! If you are a bride or wedding planner looking for dessert ideas, don’t limit yourself to the stereotypical wedding cake. 

A lot of the time it’s easier to get smaller-sized, larger quantities of desserts like cupcakes to serve to your guests alongside your wedding cake. A huge trend for weddings this past year, and one we foresee in the future, is having variety with your wedding desserts and mixing it up by including donuts, chocolate-covered fruit, or custom cookies with your names on them. The Spokane area is certainly not short on bakeries or businesses specializing in sweet treats, which is why we’ve compiled a list of the trendiest wedding desserts you can find locally. 


Bundt Cakes


Nothing Bundt Cakes handcraft the most delicious bundt cakes in a variety of flavors. They cater for weddings with their Wedding Bundt cakes, or you can also do personal-sized ‘Bundlets’ in a variety of flavors for your guests to enjoy. If you are not the traditional cake and frosting type of couple, consider this fun and delicious option instead! Check out Nothing Bundt Cakes on their website, and Instagram for more of their work!





The Macaroon tower is a dessert trend that we’ve been loving this past year. Modern French pastries are not only delicious but have set quite the tone for parties and events as of late. Individual French pastries like macaroons or croissants at your wedding will give your celebration a new level of elegance. Sweet Frostings Blissful Bakeshop offers various wedding treat specialties including custom cakes, cupcakes, dessert bars, and macaroons!




Sweet Frostings’ provides wedding consultations and tastings which you can book in advance, then collaborate on the design and theme you want for your dessert. They also offer a second option where you can do a ‘take-home tasting’ and bring home 6 of their cake flavors and two filling options to try on your own time. Check out their website and social media to see some of their other creative work.





This next local Spokane business started with a passionate baker named Jamie Roberts, who opened Three Birdies Bakery’ named after her three 3 daughters. Jamie specializes in all things custom cookies. She has done several wedding, engagement, and bachelorette-themed cookies, and will work with your specific requests to help you achieve your vision. These gorgeous custom treats would be fabulous as take-home gifts for guests or display desserts during the reception. The cost per dozen is $65, or $75 for gluten-free. 







Hello Sugar  is a bakery that makes stunning and delicious mini donuts for purchase in-shop, or for special events like weddings. Their creative decorating skills make for the most delightful-looking treats that are almost too cute to eat.


Ice cream 



The Scoop is a local and family-owned ice cream shop with two locations, one in Kendall Yards and the other on the South Hill, that makes delicious ice cream with fun and fresh ingredients. Their ‘Vintage Scoop Truck’ is used for catering at events such as weddings, business meetings, or any other planned gathering. They took a break from catering during 2022, but will be taking bookings towards the end of this year for the 2023 wedding season so keep them in mind!





We hope this helps navigate your wedding dessert choice and opens up the options beyond the ordinary wedding cake. If you have a major sweet tooth, go with a little bit of each!
