dessert party

Here are some pictures from a dessert party we catered last Saturday.  It was a success!  Everyone oooh and aaaaah'd over all the delicious sweets.  All the hard work was definitely rewarded by happy faces- and satisfied bellies.  

chocolate fountain surrounded by various treats for dipping- fresh strawberries and bananas, rice krispies,  marshmallows, butter cookies, salted pretzels, angel food cake bits, mini donuts.  Butterscotch pudding layered with crumbled sea salt chocolate cookies in individual trifles.

assorted cookies  (some vegan) -  and in the chafing dish are three kinds of ice cream sandwiches.  We placed dry ice in the chafing dish to keep the sandwiches frozen.  It worked like a charm!

Now that Leon is down to one nap a day, he and I are always looking for something fun and exciting to fill our day.  We went to The Grove the other day, did some window shopping and Leon played with water by their little fountain.  He really LOVES the water.  I should start looking into some swimming classes for him.

so much for the TP

It's hard to get upset at Leon even when he unrolls an entire roll of toilet paper.  He came out of the bathroom so happy and proud of himself with toilet paper wrapped all over himself.  It was so adorable.

sweets surround me!

Literally!  I've been in sugar, chocolate, whipped cream and cookie heaven ever since I started working on my current catering job- a dessert party.

It's always so much fun whenever I can express creativity through food.  More photos to come!
