how to incorporate ice cream rolls

Finalise your guest count

When planning for an ice cream roll cart at your wedding, be sure to consider your guest count and let your supplier know. They’re the experts in estimating the amount of ice cream rolls you will need to order.

They will find the perfect balance between overestimating slightly to ensure that you have enough for all of your guests, but will still be mindful of potential waste if you order too much.

Inform your caterer

If you’re planning to serve ice cream rolls as your primary dessert option, be sure to coordinate with your caterer to ensure that the timing of the ice cream rolls fits seamlessly into the overall flow of the meal.

In case you are having additional desserts, you will want to let your caterer & cake artist know, so they can all provide the right amount of extra desserts, to reduce any wastage.

Choose your flavours

Like we said above, the best part of ice cream rolls is how customisable they are.

Try and pick flavours which you and your guests will enjoy, and come up with fun & funky names which relate to you and your journey. 

Liaise with your wedding stationery provider to get some cool signage made too!

You can also provide a range of toppings like fresh fruit, candy, and sauces to allow guests to create their own unique combinations.

Location, location, location!

Your ice cream roll cart can also serve as a decorative element at your wedding, so be sure to think carefully about its placement and decoration.

Consider incorporating flowers, greenery, or other decorative elements (similar to your wedding theme!) to help it blend seamlessly.

Inform your guests

Make sure that guests are aware of the ice cream roll cart and its location, either by including it on your wedding website or by providing signage at the event, or making sure your DJ shouts about it at the event! 


In conclusion, an ice cream roll cart can be a unique and memorable addition to your wedding celebration.

By coordinating with your caterer, and choosing the right flavours and decorations, you can create a fun and interactive dessert experience that your guests will love. Scroll down for more mouth-watering images!
