Who doesn’t love a table laden with delectable sweet treats? This dessert table is the companion to the Black and White Sweetheart Table that I will share with you soon. Since this was only a styled shoot I used the same fabric and tablecloth that I did for the Sweetheart Table. I also included the small glittered flower vases. In the center of the table is a 7” Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse Filling. The cake is frosted with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and the sides are wrapped with a candy transfer sheet. At the end of this post I’ve included a Youtube clip that details using transfer sheets. They add a different layer of texture and taste to your desserts. The cake sits on a faux cake riser that was easy as pie to assemble.
I made cupcakes from the extra cake batter and they are frosted and decorated like the larger cake.
Down front in the center is a bowl of Vanilla Cake Truffles. This time they are coated in coconut.
Remember those Chocolate Cordial Cups my daughter sent me. Well this is the last batch and I filled them with a Pistachio Mousse.
What’s a dessert table without Chocolate Chip Cookies? I treated myself to Guittard Chips this time and boy did they make a tasty difference. Not only do I hoard table supplies but bits of leftover desserts. They were kept in the freezer of course. Thankfully the lemon curd and the pastry dough kept well so I could make lemon tartlets for this table.
On each end of the table is a gigantic goblet with mini bottles of liqueur. What better way to wash down copious amounts of sugar and fat!
I hope I’ve activated your sweet tooth just in time for Easter. Stay tuned for a short post on my simple DIY projects from this shoot. It will be posted on my other blog, Around My Table but I’ll be sure and include the link here also.
Here’s the link to the Youtube video about working with transfer sheets. It’s a long video but you’ll get the idea in a couple of minutes. I’ve had my chocolate transfer sheets for years and just decided to use them. A whole world of dessert decorations have been laid before my eyes!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
