Vegan Wedding Tips: Irresistible Vegan Desserts To Serve At A Wedding
Anyone for a dry brownie? Anyone? No. I didn't think so. Vegan desserts have reputation for being bland, dry or both. Now it is hard baking a cake without eggs or having pastries without cream but, with a little bit of invention, there's no reason to miss out at a wedding.
The best tip we can give for choosing a vegan wedding dessert is:
Avoid hot desserts with dairy free ice cream.
As America's Test Kitchen's Afton Cyrus explains in this article by NPR, dairy free ice cream is notorious for melting faster due to their high water content. If you pair this with a warm chocolate cake, you risk serving your guests a soggy dessert. We suggest serving dairy free alternatives on the side or trying out our spin on these cool classics listed below:
1) Pimm’s jelly with macerated strawberries, cucumber gel and orange sorbet.

If you ever wanted to sum up the British summer on a plate, Pimm’s jelly is the way to go. Delicious and refreshing it is perfect for a summer wedding.
2) Sharing pavlova with summer berries and pistachios.

By whipping up aquafaba (chickpea water) and using coconut cream, there's no reason why vegans should miss out on one of our most popular desserts!
3) Beetroot brownies dark chocolate sauce and coconut sorbet

Don’t be sceptical. Beetroot is the best kept secret in the brownie world. It keeps the mixture irresistibly fudgy and enhances the flavour of the chocolate, and who doesn't love chcolate brownie?
4) Tiramisu with Amaretto soaked sponge and a coffee gratin.

What would a dessert list be without it? By using pandan instead of mascarpone, there's no compromising this classic.
And last but not least...
5) Oreo cheesecake.

I know right? But it's true. Oreos are already vegan which makes a great cheesecake base then a bit of culinary magic to thicken up coconut cream and voilà... A dessert that no one could say no to.
