Instead of the traditional ring doughnut, Spanish churros are more original and equally delicious! These long extruded fingers of crunchy doughnut are traditionally served with drinking chocolate. And for a more memorable experience, you can offer a number of toppings if you hire a churros cart for your wedding. Some topping options are Nutella, cinnamon, cream, golden syrup, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, raspberry sauce, strawberry sauce or your favourite flavour jam.

As candy carts are becoming increasingly popular in weddings, a candy floss cart can be an original alternative. This delicious treat is made using an electric machine that is very easy to use and it basically heats and melts sugar. And you can also be quite original with your candy floss colours and flavours. Some ideas are cherry red, blue raspberry, grape purple, lemon yellow, pina colada, hot cinnamon or green watermelon.
