Desserts Done Differently

For your next event, instead of serving your guests your standard dessert treat, try surprising them with a not-so-average dessert of your choosing! The days of chocolate cake, cookies, and ice cream are over with and candy bars, doughnut holes, and cake pops are in!! With these dessert fads on the rise, it will be a huge hit among your guests and will add that extra kick to your event that will separate yours from others.

If you’re feeling extra creative, try creating an eclectic installation to display these desserts or use apothecary jars for your candy bar! The more unusual, the better and you’ll be WITHOUT A DOUBT catching the eye of your guests.

Depending on your party’s theme, try various shapes and sizes of apothecary jars standing on hidden plexiglass cubes to show your candy bar’s eccentric vibe. If you choose to display doughnut holes, assemble a cake stand and place your doughnut holes in a towering cone. Finally, if you’re serving cake pops, take from their popular display at Starbucks and place each cake pop individually in wrapped Styrofoam.

One last tip, when choosing your desserts, try to pick the most colorful and bright desserts to serve to your guests. Unusually colored M & M’s, sprees, and licorice wheels are just a few of the assortment of candies available to make your candy bar the most enticing bar that it can be. If you decide on the doughnut holes or cake pops, ice them in the most unordinary colors while sprinkling chocolate sprinkles and rainbow sprinkles on top of them. Just always remember, the funkier the better!
