Adding beautiful, themed sweets to a dessert buffet is a quick and interesting way to set the scene for party guests. Party desserts have evolved beyond your basic sheet cake, acting as a centerpiece, not only for the table itself but often times for the entire event! Here are a few illustrations of ways to enhance your next dessert buffet to take it from standard to spectacular!
Cake has traditionally served as the main attraction of any dessert buffet, and can beautifully portray your event theme by highlighting meaningful details and tying in colors and patterns as well. Cakes have a starring role, no longer serving as merely a sweet treat at the end of a meal, but rather serving as a main attraction and piece of party decor.
However, desserts don’t have to mean just cake anymore! By adding a wide variety of confections to your next buffet, you not only appeal to your guests appetites, but you create a spectacular landscape of choices for guests who may want more than cake alone. New trends have shown us how gorgeous gourmet cookies, the ever popular cake pop and even cupcakes can truly dress up a buffet and create the effect you desire. Here are just a few options for your next dessert table!
Cookies can easily be styled to coordinate with any party theme. From birthdays to baby showers, cookies can add an element of elegance to any event! With such a large variety of styles and flavors, cookies are always sure to please!
Cake pops and marshmallow pops are a more recent trend which completely revolutionized the concept of your basic desserts, virtually becoming an event essential all while taking the baking world by storm. A convenient snack, enjoyed by adults and children alike; these petite treats can easily be customized to fit any occasion from a backyard birthday party to a high-end wedding.
Cupcakes have made a resurgence into the party scene and can easily be dressed up with party printables or, you can go the extra mile for a more ornate cupcake and use fondant toppers. These decadent desserts are a quick and easy option when it comes to decorating but still make a bold statement on any table.
