Everyone loves doughnuts, so we can’t think of a better sweet send-off for your guests. This irresistable dessert has exploded at weddings and is one trend that’s here to stay. Choose between fried or filled, frosted or unfrosted. In addition to the large variety of flavors and toppings, there are countless creative ways to serve these yummy gods of gooeyness, like the ones from My Daughter’s Cakes above. Here are 13 decadent ways to serve our favorite wedding dessert:

1. Doughnut walls. Picture a large board with doughnuts hanging on pegs. Many venues now offer doughnut walls or you can make your own—monogrammed and in your wedding colors.

2. Hanging doughnuts. Yes, you read that right. Doughnuts literally hanging by the hole, ready for your guests to pick their favorite flavor.

3. Doughnuts perched on glasses of milk. Set up a table at your dessert bar with doughnuts set atop glasses of fresh, cold milk—and fun straws, of course.

4. Piled high. You can pile them high on a plate, and set one pile on each table.

5. Hybrids. Elevate the doughnut craze to the next level with the cronut—the combination croissant and doughnut. These deep-fried and filled pastries are decadent enough for your big day, especially if iced in your wedding colors.
