Twin Cities Trend: Rustic Mini Dessert Table

It seems like everyone is embracing a rustic, vintage-chic style for dessert tables and cakes this year. We have received several requests for great tasting, rustic confections without a lot of fuss.

At the Independent Wedding Association's In(dy)spire wedding fair, we decided to showcase our skills with a vintage inspired dessert table for attendees to check out and sample from.  With help from the fabulous vintage rental company, Lime Canary who provided the gorgeous buffet table and pastel colored cake stands, here's a look at what was presented:

Pies are making a statement in the dessert world. We make mini versions of classic favorites like apple, strawberry rhubarb, pumpkin, and key lime. Our miniature pies on a stick have been getting a lot of attention. They come in a circular shape or can be cut into different shapes like the state of Minnesota and Wisconsin

Less is more - cakes are getting a more natural styled or swirled buttercream look. Simple accents of flowers or broaches are popular as well.

Everyone's favorite, chocolate chip cookies, look just like the ones grandma used to make, but ours are made with decadent Valrhona chocolate chunks.  And rice krispie treats are done with a gourmet twist - made with brown butter and fleur de sel, then dipped in chocolate.

Don't forget edible guest favors - they make a great addition to your dessert spread.  Layered dessert shooters in glass bale jars, individually wrapped cake lollipop favors with a custom hang tag, or 2 French macaron favors are the perfect take-home treats for your guests.
