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.

If you have a wedding cake, we usually recommend 2-3 desserts per person, and 3-4 desserts per person if you want  the dessert table as an alternative to the traditional wedding cake 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. 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 diet 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 do have four design styles that we think will be perfect in any venue. But for large weddings of 200 or more, these can easily be made even more elaborate and customised to suit your overall theme, colour and feel of your event. This provides us with inspiration to design a Dessert Table that is perfect for your venue and budget. We would be delighted to create a gorgeous signature Dessert Table just 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 including a smaller tiered cake as the highlight of your Dessert Table in a complimentary theme, or have your Dessert Table separaas part of the reception for guests to mingle and share moments during your special day.

 

We love to help with allergy friendly cakes. Unfortunately we are currently not able to offer gluten-free desserts. We do offer options of made-without dairy and vegan cakes for our Dessert Tables at an extra charge. We can provide a list of ingredients upon request for your peace of mind. 

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

What will the cost be for my Dessert Table?

All the elements of a Sweet Everythings Dessert Table are priced individually. The final price varies 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 the booking. 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 kind of Desserts that you choose

  • Your budget

  • The distance to your wedding venue

  • The amount of set-up and preparation for your Dessert Table

Each number of Desserts sits within a price tier that covers any extra designs, custom embellishment, whether the Dessert is made with specific diet friendly ingredients, designed 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!

​"Sweet Everythings specialises in creative desserts​ - they look
mouth-wateringly delicious!"
