Marisa Battaglia, a local marketing professional and designer, was always passionate about being part of the resurgence of Western New York.
“Buffalo is growing every single day and there’s so many new things happening. It’s such a cool eclectic city that I thought it deserved something a little bit different,” she said.
Battaglia is the owner and creator of B Sweet Designs which specializes in custom dessert tables for weddings and special events. She officially kicked off her business in November of 2015 after having a dessert table at her own wedding. When she realized there was nothing of the sort in her hometown, she decided to start a business of her own.
“The cool thing about a dessert table is you get a variety of desserts presented in a stylish way, but at the same time working with B Sweet Designs, it’s not going to be an overwhelming task. The thought of putting together your own dessert table can seem a little daunting because there are so many details to consider,” she said.
From cupcakes to cake pops, chocolates and candies – there’s no dessert Battaglia can’t put together. But to be clear, she’s not the baker… she’s the designer. Battaglia collaborates with several local bakeries to design the desserts for the table, and then she puts it all together with serveware, themed décor, and setup and tear down. She says the dessert table leaves a lasting impression on guests as it’s the final piece to an event… and dare we say it – the sweetest.
“You put so much time and effort into this big wedding or party and you should have something to show for it. It’s really nice to hear that months later or even years later people are still raving about the dessert table they’ve had. It’s not just a couple of desserts laid out on a platter, it’s all very strategically placed and it’s like an edible work of art.”
Battaglia has successfully put together dessert tables that best suit her clients’ needs like an Art Deco/Great Gatsby themed table, glam tables, classic romance tables and vintage/rustic tables, and she can accommodate any theme or color palette.
“I get to know my clients and I try to put their personality into it. Not only their dessert and candy preferences, but I like to know about them personally because all of those details go into the dessert table as well. I try to go the extra mile and be really specific – even with my bakers and myself on how I lay out the tables and decorate the desserts – because even the way a cupcake is frosted makes a big difference in how you feel about the dessert and how it ties into the overall theme.”
And even more special… no dessert table is ever alike, so when you’re planning your wedding, know that your dessert table will be as unique and special as you are.
