When it comes to selecting wedding favors your guests will truly appreciate (and gladly devour), you can never go wrong with something edible. They can be either homemade or purchased from artisan chocolatiers, bakers or other fine purveyors of yummy treats.
Here in Part 1, we’ve chosen four unique sources for edible wedding favors you’ll be drooling over, including delectable cookies, French nougat candies, Belgian chocolate bars and fresh baked goods!
If cookies are the favors you fancy, look no further than the Brooklyn-based Gumdrop Cookie Shop.
They specialize in small-batch vanilla sugar cookies (made only with the best butter, vanilla extract and other fine ingredients) topped with edible frosting graphic designs ranging from monograms to photos to elegant, couture designs.
Gumdrop will even send you a free proof of your custom cookie design so you can ensure your favors are exactly what you want! Each cookie favor is individually wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a matching raffia ribbon, and the favors can be delivered nationwide via UPS.
If candy is more your thing, you can’t go wrong with Kettle Confections’ fresh and all-natural French nougat candies. They offer a variety of flavors that work well as wedding favors or even for wedding candy buffets.
The candies are individually wrapped in edible rice paper and come in the following flavors: Pistachio, Cafe Au Lait, Green Tea, Pistachio Cranberry, Strawberry Almond and more. Kettle Confections makes the candies in New York with a distinct recipe in which egg whites, sugar and glucose are whipped to a fluffy consistency. Then the flavors and roasted almonds or pistachios are added to complete the nougat.
You’d be hard pressed to find a wedding guest who wouldn’t enjoy a little taste of chocolate, and Chocomize transforms something as simple as a chocolate bar into one of the coolest wedding favors out there.
You start out with a delectable Belgian chocolate bar (you get a choice of three types of chocolate) and then choose from more than 100 premium ingredients to suit your sweet tooth and your wedding’s theme. You can even add an edible photo, and Chocomize will package it in a lovely pillow box with your very own custom label.
So, let’s say you want a white chocolate bar with crystallized rose petals and 23K gold flakes. With Chocomize, it’s no problem!
