Sweet treats that tell your story

An infamous favorite sandwich, reportedly loved by the King himself (as an American, I am of course referring to Elvis) was a fried peanut butter, bacon, and banana sandwich. The cholesterol raising sandwich was a signature dish at a Denver-based restaurant called the Colorado Gold MIne Company. It's basically a loaf of french bread, hollowed out, stuffed with bacon, peanut butter, and bananas and deep fried. Elvis was famously loved other fried comfort food sandwiches: peanut butter and banana, and fried baloney. Do you and your fiance have a food that you love, or that you are famous for in your respective social circles? Why not serve it at your wedding?

Love breakfast for dinner? Have a little waffle or pancake bar with fun toppings.

Make common treats extraordinary by using a heart-shaped cookie cutter (or any other shape that strikes your fancy) to cut out sweet and whimsical shapes. Below are heart-shaped whoopee pies and brownies.

How about a cold, refreshing soda and a mini hamburger for a snack during the dancing hour?
