Dessert Tables

Planning a wedding or other special celebration?
Seeking something a little bit different to surprise and delight your guests on your special day?
Fabulous!  You've arrived at the perfect place.  Make yourself comfortable and let's talk cake...

If you really want the food at your celebration to have the wow factor, you may be interested in having a dessert table as either an addition or alternative to a traditional celebration cake.

A dessert table is a wonderful way to create a beautiful food display at your party and have all your favourite sweet treats on one table.  (Great if you are struggling to decide which flavours to use!)  White Rose Bakes' contemporary, elegant, natural style is visually stunning whilst still being very inviting for your guests to dive in and enjoy and explore!  Take a look at the gallery for some examples of our products.

At White Rose Bakes we pride ourselves on using ingredients from local producers wherever possiblenever, and never using artificial colours or flavours.  We are also very pleased to be able to offer a range of products made without dairy or gluten-containing ingredients and other allergens.  So you can be confident that we can bake to suit any allergies or dietary requirements you or your guests may have.

Your dessert table will be as unique as you are.  You will get to decide which bakes you would like, how many varieties, how many portions, which flavours are used, how your bakes are decorated, if you would like to include a larger centrepiece cake or not, and much more!  In other words, your dessert table will be designed to suit you and your budget, right down to the finest detail.


How we work:

Step 1: Fill in our Wedding Questionnaire Form and Contact Alice to discuss how she can design and make a stunning and exciting selection of delicious sweet bakes for your very own personal dessert table.

Step 2: We will send you ideas and designs to suit your requirements, preferences, and budget.

Step 3: You tell us what changes and tweaks you want to make.

Step 4: We send you revisions.

Step 5: We invite you to a complimentary tasting, either at the bakery or a venue of your choice.

Step 6: We discuss and agree any final menu revisions you would like.

Step 7: We ask for a 50% deposit on your agreed menu, to be paid before your wedding.

Step 8: On your wedding day, the cake fairies come and set up before your celebrations begin.

Step 9: We ask for the remaining 50% balance to be paid within 30 days after your wedding.

Testimonial - Spring wedding cake and dessert table

“We can’t thank Alice enough for the delicious cakes she made for our wedding. It was a breeze to work with her – from the first enquiry right down to the us demolishing the final crumbs. We particularly appreciated her taking the time to sit with us, find out what types of cakes we like and put together a spread of different textures and flavours. It all looked amazing on the day and we had lots of compliments. For me cake is all about the flavour, not how much icing it can hold, and Alice delivers in spades. Couldn’t recommend her service highly enough!”
Juliet, York

Testimonial - Spring Wedding Cake and Tower of Mini Treats

"We both really enjoyed working with Alice on the cake buffet for our wedding.
In many ways it was a non-traditional wedding, and as we were holding it in London rather than Yorkshire we wanted to honour my husband's heritage as well as creating a selection of cakes we were both excited about. Added to this we had a number of guests with significant allergies and intolerances, so we were a bit concerned that we'd end up with a really uninspiring cake.
Working with White Rose Bakes was fantastic. Alice took our vague ideas and Pinterest pins and made them into a selection of incredibly delicious desserts that our friends are still talking about. From the rhubarb meringue tarts to the boozy cherry bakewells and the most delicious brownies I've ever eaten - not to mention the absolutely showstoppingly gorgeous and delicately flavored centrepiece cake - it was proudly Yorkshire, exceptionally delicious and totally us.
We've been told by numerous guests that it was the best wedding cake they've ever had and honestly, we couldn't recommend White Rose Bakes highly enough. Thank you for helping to make our day so special and memorable."
Natasha and Alistair, London.

Testimonial - Summer Wedding Dessert Table

"Your cakes went down very well indeed, so well me and Frase didn't even get to sample any!!
Honeymoon cake top worked wonderfully and we enjoyed it on our balcony in Paris as well as the train ride across. 
I hope we find many occasions to use White Rose Bakes in the future."
Letitia, Yorkshire.

Testimonial - Summer Wedding Dessert Table

"White Rose Bakes were a delight to work with from start to finish. After telling Alice the style of catering I was having at my wedding at fairly short notice she sent me some tailor made dessert suggestions to go with the food. She managed to guess EXACTLY what I was thinking- mini traditional cakes to go with my afternoon tea style buffet. After some quick email communication we had decided on a dessert menu to die for and I was invited to the bakery for a tasting session.
The whole process made me feel like a princess- a real bridal treat! The cakes were delicious, and completely made my wedding perfect. The guests agreed too- they were gone in minutes and the groom and I barely got a look in! We loved them so much we are ordering some more for Christmas - I cannot recommend White Rose Bakes enough, not only were the flavours unique and inspiring but Alice worked to my exact budget without any question. Truly professional - thank you so much."
Megan, York.

Testimonial - Summer Wedding Cake and Chocolate Mini Bites

Thanks so much, we had a wonderful day! Everyone loved the cake and mini bites (handbags were filled at the end of the night haha!). The flower arrangement looked beautiful, it was perfect. 
We will definitely recommend you to anyone in need of a great cake!
Lucinda and Adam, Yorkshire.

Thank you so much. The day was beautiful and more amazing than we could have even imagined or hoped for!!!  The table looked amazing!! And the deserts were delicious and beautiful to look at.

Testimonial - Summer Wedding Pies

Stephanie and I just want to say thank you so much for the pies for our wedding on Sunday - they were absolutely fantastic and everyone there loved them. I don't think there was a single piece left by the end of the night so it's a good job we ordered extra portions!
Chris and Stephanie, York

Testimonial - Summer Wedding Cake

Just a little card to say thank you!  For making me & Dave such a tremendous wedding cake.  It really was the star of the show!
Lucy and Dave, York

Testimonial - Spring Wedding Cake

White rose bakes did us proud.  We had a fantastic tasting and looking carrot cake for our son's wedding.  Also expertly set up. Alice really listens to what you request and advises on how best to proceed, which for us included a gluten free top tier.  Will definitely go straight to white rose bakes next time we need a celebration cake.
Steve, York (Father of the Groom)
