1} Dainty Delights
These bite-sized, hand-decorated minis from Cookies by Kate are light and airy, with a refreshing lemony finish, making them the perfect guilt-free treat. The not-too-sweet lemon-buttermilk cookie pairs perfectly with decadent royal icing, which keeps the dessert fresh while locking in flavor.

2} Blushing Bride
This on-trend table cake from Creative Confections by Alicia has us feeling positively rosy with its pretty pinks. The bottom tier is covered with a textured blush fondant and accented with crisp rose-gold top tier and stripes below. A statement sugar-paste flower is dusted with rose gold to add extra shimmer.

3} Chocolate Lovers
All you need is love—and a little chocolate. These sugar cookies, made with cocoa and brown sugar from Cookies by Kate, add that essential ingredient, perfect for every dessert table. The vanilla royal frosting allows for multiple layers in an intricate lace pattern.

4} Sweet Tarts
These sweet little tarts from Yield Bakehouse have a sugar cookie base, but come in a variety of crusts, including shortbread or graham cracker. For fillings, the options are virtually endless, making these desserts easily customizable. A sprinkle of vanilla chips and crushed meringue finishes the creation with flair.

5} New Heights
Add an element of sweet surprise to receptions with this towering masterpiece from Yield Bakehouse. Meringues in classic white and pretty peach rise high with beautiful blooms interspersed along the way.

6} Peachy Keen
Brown Rice and Honey brings layers of fun with these mini trifle shooters that are sure to leave guests feeling peachy. A translucent shot glass serves as the vessel for the peach ginger trifles, allowing the gorgeous layers of ginger cookie, vanilla cream and peach preserves to shine.
