Wonderful Wedding Wednesday • Autumn Wedding Food Inspiration

I had always imagined a summer wedding when I was a little girl, but when I started dreaming up this post idea I realised all the food I love to eat is so Autumnal that perhaps I picked the wrong season! 

Every week I support The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, a charity helping terminally people get married, with a wedding related post, so this week it's food! 

I love canapés at a wedding. As a guest I am always racing around getting ready and too excited to eat lunch before the ceremony, and then feel ravenous when we get to a reception venue!

I made these sweet and sticky fig canapés, which would be perfect for an Autumn wedding buffet.

In fact they went down a treat with my 2 year old too! I am tempted to make another batch and save them for pre school packed lunches.

  • Puff pastry sheets cut into circles approx 3 inch diameter. I used a scalloped cutter
  • Figs
  • Walnuts
  • Acacia Honey
  • Desiccated coconut

  • Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees/Gas Mark 4
  • Cut your circles from the puff pastry sheets
  • Slice your figs thinly and layer 3 slices per pastry circle
  • Chop your whole walnuts and sprinkle over the fig slices
  • Drizzle half a teaspoon of honey onto the figs (I preferred a thicker honey to start with as it will melt in the oven whilst cooking) 
  • Sprinkle desiccated coconut over and bake for 20 mins.

Add a little extra coconut and honey to the top layer if you choose to stack them for extra wow factor. The coconut works just like a dusting of icing sugar. Embrace the gooey wonder that falls out of the oven, it's not about perfect shapes, let the pastry do it's thing!
