Historic St. Paul wedding venue
The ceremony is over… you’re married! The dinner has been cleared; the music is about to start; now all your guests are waiting for is… cake? Maybe, but maybe not. Recently, trends have been shifting in the wedding dessert arena. People are no longer necessarily expecting a big cake—they’re waiting to see something different!
At Black Bear Crossings Café & Banquet Center, we have a wide variety of wedding desserts to cater to a wide variety of tastes and traditions. One of the latest trends in the dessert world is the shooter, which we carry in key lime, berry cheesecake, turtle cheesecake, French silk, caramel apple, tiramisu, banana cream, and lemon flavor. In the same family, we also host a cheesecake martini bar. For this fun treat, we serve classic cheesecake in a martini glass and let you add your favorite toppings—berries, crushed Oreos, chopped pecans, flaked coconut, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and whipped cream!
We can’t forget to mention cupcakes! In the last five years, cupcakes have been a roaring trend in the sweet treat world. Some couples have even made their entire wedding cake out of cupcakes! At Black Bear Crossings, we’ll make your cupcakes in your choice of sweet vanilla, chocolate fudge, strawberry shortcake, coconut supreme, chocolate mint, banana split, and red velvet. Then, we can place them on a decorative cupcake tree for your guests to admire.
In addition to these mouth-watering dessert options, you can also order cookies and bars, like Pumpkin Spice Bars, Lemon Bars, Brownies, RK Bars, 7-Layer Bars, Cream Cheese Streusel Bars, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Or, on a smaller scale we offer a Petite Sweets Buffet with an assortment of bite-sized desserts like macaroons, chocolate strawberries, raspberry mousse chocolate cups, fruit tartlets, and mini cookies and bars.
All of these offerings are not to distract you from generations of wedding tradition. We still offer a traditional wedding cake from Buttercream, as well as our cake cutting service. Our goal is to give you the wedding of your dreams from the ceremony through the reception. The perfect dessert will be the icing on the cake.
