I’m back again with yet another “mini dessert” post! I love creating desserts in mini glasses for guests to grab from dessert tables. So when I was tasked with creating a Valentines themed table, I knew a cheesecake would go down a storm and would require next to no-time for me to put together.
The only problem was that I’d actually never made a cheesecake before! Shock horror I know – I have no idea why I hadn’t made these sooner since it was super easy, required very little ingredients and was extremely easy to assemble. With no baking time required, it meant I didn’t need to slave over the oven and I couldn’t wait to use my favourite Terry’s chocolate orange in a bake.
With Valentine’s day fast approaching I thought I’d throw it back to this little dessert table I put together for a Valentine’s party last year. Any excuse for a party (and one that includes desserts) and I’m there in a heartbeat – who said Valentine’s day is only for couples? I plan on throwing another party this year with friends and family and can’t wait!
For those wanting to throw a Valentine’s party, or for those who simply want to put together a dessert table just so they can gorge on all the sugar themselves, hopefully this’ll provide some inspiration.
Hello all – it’s been a while hasn’t it? Excuse my absence but I come baring ‘gifts’ – a post dedicated to an indoor picnic party I threw last year!
This birthday party was originally planned to take place outdoors, but we know how unpredictable the British weather is so I was forced to bring it indoors at the very last minute. With my little sister turning 10, I knew the party needed to be fun but not too “childish”.
I’m a big fan of dessert tables – give me a reason for a party and I’ll be the first person to jump up to create a table filled with desserts to fit the theme.
I think it makes the perfect addition to any party and I’m a sucker for taking something simple and transforming it to look pretty. Having a dessert table helps to give the room a focal point and keeps the guests waiting eagerly and on their toes till the table opens up!
Jam tarts are one of those recipes that feel like they are so much harder to make than they actually are – probably due to the fact that a pastry is involved.
However, with a pastry that takes only minutes to prepare and a filling that is already pre-made, it honestly doesn’t entail as much effort as one would expect. And for those that want a cheat bake that requires even more minimal effort, then use shop bought pastry instead – no one will ever know the difference.
I come armed with another cheat bake today, and one that’s even easier than my last! Following on from my previous post, I also whipped up these banoffee pots for my Valentine’s gathering.
I love making mini individual desserts, and think when creating a dessert table it makes it much more easier for guests to grab a dessert and go rather than having to cut it into separate pieces (there’s no time to waste when eating cake.)
