FAQs

Where do I start?

Our beautiful dessert tables are so much more than just cupcakes on pretty platters. The perfect Dessert Table showcases your personality and creates a showstopping statement for all your guests.

The guidelines for a Dessert Table are: 

  • A minimum of 3 desserts per guest

  • A minimum of 24 of the same dessert with no variations

  • There is a maximum of 100 desserts per variation

We usually recommend 3-4 desserts per person (typically a piece of the centrepiece cake plus two mini desserts) to ensure there is plenty of cake for everyone.

Our dessert menu is individually designed for each client but includes

  • Sweet treats such as cake pops and mini dessert pots

  • Our delicious bakery collection including macarons, fruit tarts and cupcakes.

  • Our patisserie range including eclairs, individual tarts and mousses

What else will be a part of the Dessert Table other than Desserts?

Besides your choices of mini Desserts, each Dessert Table is designed to fit the theme, look, and vibe of your wedding or party. We know that planning an event takes a lot of time and energy, so we’ve already thought of everything: our Dessert Tables are all-inclusive right down to the elements of transport, unpacking and putting it all away.

 

All of our Dessert Tables include:

Custom designed tablescape display encompassing your theme, colours and details

  • The rental of vessels:  serving plates, cake stands, platters

  • Table linens (custom linens are available for an additional charge)

  • Custom designed dessert labels/tags for each type of dessert

  • Table set-up, breakdown and styling

There is no hire charge for the Dessert Table cake stands and serving platters; however, there's a breakage deposit of £100, refundable after the event if no damage or breakage has been accrued. We are happy to work with your own florist if you wish to have floral arrangement to help your Dessert Table fit the look and theme of your event or wedding, and we can provide spotlights, custom backdrops, flower balls, light strings, and accessories as part of the design.

All of our Dessert Tables include signage clearly indicating the type of dessert and any allergy-friendly servings and signage notifying guests of the time that you select when the Table is 'open'. This prevents some from missing out in case the earlier guests help themselves before anyone else has had a chance to arrive!

I like the Dessert Table idea, but can I have a different Dessert Table from the ones that I see here?

The beauty of our Dessert Tables is that it can be customised exactly as you wish. We first meet with you to discuss the overall theme, colour and feel of your event to get a feel for your preferences. This provides us with inspiration to design a Dessert Table that is perfect for your venue and budget. Even if you’re not sure of your theme yet, our Dessert Stylist can help make it easy to come up with the right Dessert Table for you.

I would like a Dessert Table but what about my wedding cake?

Our Dessert Tables love company, and there are a few options to help your wedding cake feel at home with our Dessert Table. You can have the best of both worlds by matching your wedding cake with a Dessert Table in a complimentary theme, or simply having the Dessert Table on its own at the reception for guests to

 

We love to help with allergy friendly cakes, and serve a selection of made-without gluten, made-without dairy, and vegan cakes. All of our Dessert Tables come with full guidelines about how they were prepared and a list of the ingredients used. The gluten-free and vegan minimum/maximum guidelines are exactly the same as our other cakes, except that the minimum for these is 12 desserts.

Can I have gluten-free/dairy-free/vegan cakes as part of my Dessert Table?

What will the cost be for my Dessert Table?

A Sweet Everythings Dessert Table custom-made cakes are priced individually. The final price varies from cake to cake depending on the complexity of the design. We are happy to work within your event budget and will provide a quotation in writing before you commit to purchase.Your Table and dessert design will depend on the following:

  • The number of Desserts per person and/or the total number of Desserts you choose for your Dessert Table

  • The Dessert that you choose

  • Your budget

Each number of Desserts sits within a price tier that covers any extra designs, custom embellishment, whether the Dessert is made without gluten/dairy or created with a special theme, etc. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your event date and we will chat through your specific needs and design for the perfect Dessert Table for you.

What is the arrangement for travel/set-up/packdown of the Dessert Table?

Sweet Everythings is based in Glasgow but can travel all over Scotland to all kinds of events.  The travel charge is dependent upon location. We arrive 2 hours prior to the start of your event and all desserts are placed out at the same time - this means that your Dessert Table is prepared and ready for the start of your event and there's no extra charge for table service.

How will the Dessert Table be transported for freshness?

All of our cakes are handmade from scratch, baked in small batches and use high quality ingredients for their desserts. They are carefully packed for delivery ready to be placed on the Dessert Table at your event or wedding venue. We always bring extras to have on hand if any slight damage should happen on the way - just in case! - and retouch anything out of place on site. Once everything is plated on the Dessert Table, it is quality checked to make sure it looks consistently pristine. Then it is double checked with the event coordinator or venue contact of your choice to confirm that your Dessert Table is perfectly presented and ready to be eaten!
