Several weeks ago I catered a wedding rehearsal event – Individual size Southern-style desserts for 85. I was quite busy with the preparation so these are all the photos I took. It was my first non-wedding cake event. I will say, making individual size servings of seven different desserts for 85 people is much more complicated than making a wedding cake for 250! Whew! I was thrilled that it turned out so well. Three of my sons did a fantastic job helping the day of the event. So very thankful for their help.
I prepared 24 separate recipes for all the components. I didn’t have time to make the Silk Buttercream for the Pecan Tarts so I had to use a simple buttercream instead but everything else went according to plan. Not seen well in the photos: bowls of Peanut Brittle, Spiced Pecans, Fresh Strawberries. Also: Pink Lemonade, Strawberry and Orange stick candy.
These are gorgeous!
Thank you kindly. :)
wow this looks amazing! I love the little pecan pies :)
Thank you! The pecan pies were a new recipe and I discovered a secret ingredient, Lyle’s Golden Syrup, that made them taste especially delicious. I had never used the syrup before and it’s now a staple in my cupboard.
absolutely beautiful! You are so very talented.
Aw, thank you kindly, Lisa! :)

what a neat idea! And, you accomplished it beautifully! If they tasted half as good as they looked, and I’m sure that they did, wow!
Thank you, Leisha. Next time you’re in town, let me know and I’ll bake something for you! :)
Wonderful! I may have seen those coconut cupcakes with the parchment cups – nice visual effect!
Thank you, Sarah! I was really pleased with how my recipe turned out. The toasted coconut was delicious!
can I just ask for the petit fours for my birthday ;) mmmmm
Definitely! Not sure how to ship them though. ;)
I just put 15 pounds on looking at all the wonderful desserts. Drool! I know that they tasted wonderful and you did an awesome job. What an artist. Thank you for sharing. ^j^ Donna
