Bonus Day Dessert Table

I was very happy with how my first dessert table turned out.  It was for a “Bonus Day” celebration at work, that’s why the money theme.    A co-worker made the money tree and I though she did an awesome job!  Here is what the overall table looked like…

Coming up….My First Dessert Bar

I have been seeing lots of wonderful photos of dessert bars lately. They seem to be growing in popularity, for weddings, birthday parties, and other theme parties.

Here are two blogs that show some great ideas and amazing work…

So when I was asked to prepare something for an upcoming celebration at work the first thing that came to mind was DESSERT BAR!

First I had to figure out how many items to make. After some searching I decided on 5 different desserts, three pieces per person. There will be about 50 people, so 150 pieces total.  Each piece will be an individual serving size.

The only thing I can’t decide on is where to have the chocolate. I’m trying to decide between a cupcake and a parfait. One will be fruit and the other chocolate.

Should I do a German chocolate cupcake and a banana cream parfait?

Or a lemon raspberry cupcake and a chocolate peanut butter parfait?

A chocolate peanut butter cupcake and a raspberry tiramisu?

You get the idea….decisions, decisions….

The next 7 days are going to be a busy because this event is the same day as I am hosting a Chocolate Tasting Party for my girlfriends. Stay tuned for the details on that event.  That reminds me...I think I need to make some lists of things to do!
