Unique Wedding Desserts with Unexpected Surprises for your Guests

I am in total awe of these two unique and super fun desserts that would be perfect for weddings or bridal showers. The best part is that these desserts have a little {or should I say BIG} surprise inside them. I like to call them "Edible Pinatas". These desserts have got to be one of the most clever I've seen yet. Do you remember the pinata cake I wrote about a while ago? Well, these desserts use the same idea - but in a totally new way. Are you ready?

Unique Dessert Idea : pinata meringues from A Subtle Revelry
First up are the adorable pinata meringues from A Subtle Revelry. Wouldn't these be the cutest surprise for your party guests? Victoria's blog has the complete recipe and step-by-step instructions for creating your very own meringues and turning them into pinatas.
Unique Dessert Idea : mini pinata cakes made with stacked donuts. Center is filled and then donuts are completely frosted
And, now for the brilliant dessert creation from Tiffanie of corner blog. This mini pinata cake is actually made from homemade baked donuts that are stacked with the center holes made a bit larger and filled with treats. The cakes are then frosted and ready for slicing into. Wouldn't these cakes be adorable to have a few presented to each table for your guests to dig into? And, for summer . . . how about filling with fresh berries? Tiffanie's blog has the complete step-by-step instructions for creating these mini pinata cakes.
Mixed Media Masterpieces : crafting one-of-a-kind wedding journals + keepsakes

Have you heard of Everyday is a Holiday? Jenny and Aaron are the amazingly talented artists behind the popular crafting blog and have now published a book to help you create vibrant art journals {these are perfect for preserving  your wedding memories} and unique mixed media pieces in the easy-to-follow guide called Mixed Media Masterpieces. My personal favorite how-to's are the supercute mini faux doughnuts {which you will see below} and the fauxbulous keepsake cake.

Wouldn't it be so fun to serve doughnuts as the dessert at either your bridal shower or wedding and then send each guest home with a handmade keepsake faux doughnut? You can even turn these doughnuts into magnets or sign the back with a little personal thank you.

You can find Jenny and Aaron online at their blog Everyday is a Holiday and I'm in LOVE with their jumbo, sturdy wooden die cuts that are all handmade by Jenny and Aaron from their original paintings. Wouldn't it be fun to hang one of these wooden paintings behind your dessert table and then display it in your home after the wedding as a keepsake?

PS: You can purchase the Mixed Media Masterpieces book here for just $15.50. A fun idea is to plan a little "un-plugged" girlfriend get-together and gather supplies to have a fun craft night making art journals and more with Jenny and Aaron's easy to follow , step-by-step instruction manual.
