Wedding Dessert Tables
I was watching the news on TV last week (I accidentally caught the tail end of it right before Oprah) when the anchor proclaimed “Our country is in the middle of wedding season!” Well, that supports my theory that the news is a giant waste of time.
But, it also explains the three wedding invitations I got in the mail last week, and why the better part of my Facebook News Feed is saturated with wedding-related trials and tribulations. Apparently even flower girl dress shopping can be a traumatic event wrought with tears.
Being the hopeless romantic and closeted matchmaker that I am, hearing about all these weddings makes my heart fuzzy. It’s nice to see that love prevails…regardless of flower girl dress drama. Being the pastry chef that I am, the word wedding makes me think of one thing: CAKE. Or, maybe not…
Recently, I did something a little different for my friends’ wedding.
Rachael and Aaron decided that a wedding dessert table sounded like a perfect compromise. Instead of having one big elaborate cake, this allowed them to showcase a variety of their favorite desserts.
Their dessert table featured all sorts of cookies from French Macarons to Coconut Shortbreads to Mexican Wedding Cookies laced with pecans.
A Lattice-Topped Apple Pie filled with tart and sweet Pink Lady Apples .
Guiness Chocolate Cakes and Cupcakes.
Oh, and there were Jolly Red Velvet Cupcakes with tangy Cream Cheese Frosting.
And there were Almond Poppyseed Tartlets.
It was a lovely wedding in the beautiful Napa Valley with good people, good dancing and good times. And nary a crumb left on the dessert table.
