Question: What makes a dessert Instagram-worthy? (such as colors, dessert shape/size, overall presentation)
- Answer: At Sensational Treats, we believe that uniqueness is what makes a dessert Instagram-worthy. What’s more exciting to see something you’ve never seen before or something that reminds you of something you have not seen in a long time. A new item recently featured at a staff appreciation event was custom Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas. We were set up to hand dipped frozen bananas in dark chocolate with guests being able to choose their own topping: sprinkles, Oreo crumbles, or peanuts. They loved this cool, unique treat…and when they didn’t have their hands full with our delicious bananas, they were busy taking pictures of it!
Question: What are the most popular wedding desserts for San Diego couples?
- Answer: We believe that the most popular wedding desserts are freshly made mini donuts, as well as our delicious liquid nitrogen ice cream. With our donuts being made right in front of the guests, people can’t resist how mouth-watering delicious they are. They can be provided as a dessert, late night snack, or favor for people to take with them as they depart. Our handmade liquid nitrogen ice cream is not only a unique experience, but also pairs perfectly with wedding cake! We have amazing flavors such as raspberry cheesecake, espresso or chocolate with bacon caramel. For those that are lactose intolerant, fruit sorbets are a yummy option. Our unique LED station can work your wedding colors into the presentation and provide a sophisticated look to enhance your hip ice cream experience.
Question: Explain why couples want variety in wedding sweets, including cakes, pastries, cookies, ice cream, etc.
- Answer: At Sensational Treats we find that couples love to add an element of variety & uniqueness to their wedding. What better way to do that than through dessert! Since it’s near the end of the reception, it’s a “sweet” way to create excitement and finish your event.With all of Sensational Treats’ desserts being interactive and made on site, not only do they taste great…but they also add another element of fun! For example, our liquid nitrogen products (Ice Cream, Pops, & Snacks) look amazing. The vapor from the liquid nitrogen adds a cool ambiance, and immediately gets guests’ attention. Guests are very interested in how it works, so they watch and ask questions as they bite into the creamy decadence. By enjoying the whole experience, they are more engaged and excited because of what they just witnessed being made.
Our donuts smell amazing…so even if you don’t see us right away, you’ll know we’re there and seek us out. Once the guests arrive at the station, they can watch the donuts being made one by one traveling down the trough, choosing their topping & eating them while they are piping hot.
Another reason couple’s focus on unique desserts is to share one of their passions or favorite treat with their guests. We recently had a wedding where the groom loved churros. The bride hired Sensational Treats to serve churros for him as a unique surprise. Not only was it wonderful for the groom, but all the guests enjoyed sharing one of his favorite desserts with him.
