Chris & Fred's Baby Shower Dessert Bar

October 24 2010
One dessert is never enough, so Chris and Fred opted for a dessert bar instead of a cake. A fun, and diplomatic way to have something sweet for everyone's taste. So, for this co-ed baby shower, a dessert bar and custom cookie favors were both on order. Chris and Fred were so sweet, and easy to work with - they knew exactly what they wanted. We ended up with a great selection of small desserts, so that their guests could try more than one, and not feel guilty about it. And as if that wasn't enough, they got a perfectly sweet and charming cookie favor to take home too.

The crunchy buttery cookies were decorated with scalloped white fondant, then hand painted to match their invitations, and garnished with sweet, tinted fondant cutouts (for the giraffe's spots, the bird's wing, and the elephant's ear).

For their menu, they decided on,
Chocolate Cupcakes with Marshmallow dipped in Chocolate
Salted Caramel French Macarons
Sable Chocolat with Fleur De Sel
Apple Crisp with Currants, Almond Streusel and Chantilly Cream
Coconut Tapioca with Passionfruit Sauce, Raspberries, Strawberries and Toasted Coconut Shavings

We had so much fun doing this dessert bar, we can't wait to do it again!
