A baby shower dessert table

Sweet table

It’s been a hectic weekend. The French Food Festival has come and gone, thanks to all who stopped by our booth, we sold out by 3pm, yay! Also this weekend, favor bags for a charity event, Wag and Swag to benefit “Fetch a Cure“, and lastly a baby shower dessert table. 

The mom-to-be loved lavender. Pink and green rounded out the color and we worked with that color palette.

It was an intimate gathering of about 40 people so I kept the table small with enough variety to add interest, color and of course flavor: banana cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, red velvet cake pops, strawberry marshmallows, assorted flavor Parisian macarons, homemade chewy caramel, jelly beans and chocolate gems.

Black currant, bittersweet chocolate macarons

The macarons above were inspired by Pierre Herme’s Chuao fetish and are Italian Meringue macarons.

red velvet cake pops are always a crowd pleaser

 It’s so interesting how many folks ignore the marshmallows, but after some prodding from me to try them they are surprised at how good homemade marshmallows are.

Another view of the dessert table. It was hard to take a picture of the dessert table with the window behind it but the windows provided such a great backdrop for it.

My thanks to the “Hungry Hubby” for transporting all my cake stands and vessels with care, helping me setup, take the pictures and then haul ass to deliver the macaron favors clear across town. We’re a team! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Your dessert table looks absolutely fantastic! I don’t think those goodies would have even lasted a few minutes here LOL.
    I’ve never had a homemade marshmallow before so I should prolly get to making them soon; the packet ones taste like gelatified toilet water.. ugh.

  2. OMG- Everything looks fabulous- I can almost taste those Black Currant Bittersweet Chocolate Macarons! Yuuuuuuummmmm!

  3. Thanks Ben! I’ve never ate supermarket marshmallows before either but once I had homemade ones, I’m a fan!
    Thanks Cindy – The black currant is soon to be a standard flavor, I love it a lot. Just tweaking it a bit more. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t wait to try your other flavors.
