Cutting the cake is fun for the two of you, but having an interactive dessert station at your reception lets your guests share in the sugary celebration. And pulling it off is easy: Select your favorite treat and set aside a special table for all the fixings. After the main meal, have the ingredients arranged in the order they’ll be used. Then encourage your friends and family to dig in and design their own desserts!
