5 DIY Fall Desserts for Weddings + Parties

by Emma Arendoski

Happy Tuesday! Are you enjoying the new season? I love Fall… my favorite time of year. Maybe it’s the cool breeze, the pumpkin spice coffee that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying, or the changing leaves I can see outside my office window. This scarf-wearing, cider-buying, jeans-and-sweater sporting weather is perfect for weddings and comes with some pretty tasty dessert ideas, too. If you’re looking for fall desserts to add a thematic touch to your wedding, bridal shower, or party (maybe even just kicking back on Saturday night with your honey), you’ve come to the right place. I’m sharing five of my new favorite fall desserts for weddings to try – and each includes a link to the complete do-it-yourself recipe. So, roll up those sleeves, slap on your favorite apron, grab a few of these oven mitts (I’m obsessed) and get ready try these tempting fall desserts for weddings. You can bake ’em up and gift as favors (in to-go packaging) or share among other favorite treats on a dessert table. And, if you’re a bit of a baking amateur, just fake it ’til you make it: I think that’s the rule for beginner bakers anyway… enjoy!

4. Cardamom Honey Caramel Pears (or Apples)

I’m so happy to have found this recipe, as pears are often overlooked as a worthy treat, but pears are actually in their full glory in October. So, do what the folks at Not Without Salt created this amazing recipe, I couldn’t wait to share it. These pears make a great favor-to-go – just wrap and tie with pretty ribbon and a tag. Get the full how-to scoop here.

These baked pumpkin spice donut holes look heavenly and only take twenty minutes to make. Crazy, I know- this is one I’ll be trying right away. These are actually miniature muffins, but with the special mixture of butter and little bits of magic, these taste like delicious donut holes – no frying required!
