What are some delicious Southern desserts you can serve at your Louisiana wedding, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Bread pudding. This dessert is quite common in many parts of the world, but it got to be extremely popular in the Southern states. Originally created in the 11th century, this sweet treat has evolved over the years – and nowadays, it’s a go-to dessert for anyone looking for a simple, tasty, and comforting option.
  • Coconut cake. Southerners are famous for their layered cakes – so why not include this in your wedding, maybe even as an actual wedding cake? Coconut cake is usually made from multiple layers of cake and coconut cream, and then frosted in coconut and creamy frosting. It’s a decadent treat nobody can say NO to, any way you look at it!
  • Lane cake. If you love desserts infused in alcohol, this one’s for you. With a history of more than 100 years in the South, lane cakes are made from sponge cakes and a filling made from various ingredients, including bourbon and raisins. Sounds like the kind of treat your wedding guests will absolutely love, right?
  • Peach cobbler. Scrumptious and really sweet, this warm treat is absolutely perfect for those of you who want to serve a really classic Southern dessert. Of course, it can be made from a variety of fruit – but peaches tend to be more popular in these areas precisely because they come in generous amounts in full season.
  • Sweet potato pie. This dessert is ideal for a fall wedding, precisely because it’s usually associated with pumpkin pie and served at Thanksgiving dinners. If your guests haven’t tried this before, they will instantly fall in love with the rich, spicy and sweet taste of this pie – it’s a treat in the fullest sense of the word!
