The Amazing Dessert Bar Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Had At Their Wedding

Many fans of actress Blake Lively know that she absolutely loves to bake. In fact, earlier this year, Lively had jaws dropping when she shared a colorful unicorn cake she crafted for her older sister Robyn Lively's birthday (via ET Online).

Far from amateur, Lively's lovely creation actually ended up getting a comment on Instagram from baker Paul Hollywood, who many baking enthusiasts will recognize from his role as judge on "The Great British Bake Off." In her 73 Questions interview with Vogue, she even decorated a cupcake with effortlessly perfect piped buttercream. Given her penchant for whipping up sweet treats, it makes sense that the dessert and cake selection would be an important component of her wedding catering.

She certainly didn't disappoint. Though her wedding was an intimate affair for a select few guests, she went all out and put together a dessert bar absolutely packed with incredible treats (via The Daily Meal). When wedding plans got a bit out of hand for the starlet, she ended up calling on the hostess with the mostess, Martha Stewart, who lives near the happy couple in Bedford, N.Y. to help her finalize details (via Lohud) — and Stewart made sure that dessert table was an absolute dream.

What exactly was on that decadent dessert table?

The centerpiece of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' dessert table was a four-tier wedding cake with vanilla and sour cream cake layers, peach and apricot preserves as a filling, and an Earl Grey-milk chocolate buttercream (via Martha Stewart), which was created by Virginia-based cake designer Maggie Austin Cake (via E! Online). The dessert bar was decorated with glass domes that contained blush garden roses, adding some natural beauty to the set-up and filling in any spaces that weren't crammed with sweet treats. All the treats were artfully arranged on an antique table with various platters and risers, making it a true showstopper of a display.

Lively made sure all the flavor options were covered, and there was an abundance of selections for her guests. From Bakehouse, a coffeehouse and bakery in Charleston, she ordered mini chocolate ganache-filled bundt cakes, as well as s'mores bars to give that campfire flair to the festivities (via The Daily Meal). She also added several other local options, getting blueberry and cheesecake tartlets as well as mini strawberry shortcakes from Charleston spot Caviar & Bananas, and she even incorporated chilled treats in the form of popsicles with sweet sayings from Charleston-based vendor King of Pops. 

As if that weren't enough, she also offered coffee-and-cream espresso beans for guests who needed a little energy boost (via,) as well as a large glass jar and an adorable terrarium filled with colorful, dainty macarons. Talk about a spread!
