I was looking for cake ideas and chanced upon Irina Tokyo's swiss rolls. They were mini swiss rolls sliced into chunky pieces and assembled with fruits and ribbon. I thought that was a brilliant idea because there's no need to store them in the fridge. And the best part, they looked so cute!
Rainbows and Stickers
Customised stickers are useful in presenting the event theme. From Rainbows and Stickers.
Goodies bags were packed with chips, lollipop and candies. The boxes cost $1.50 per piece from The Sweet Favor.
Made a croquembouche from this choux pastry recipe. The white chocolate compound ($8.90/1kg) was melted before coating with the choux pastries and assembled. They sticked together firmly when cooled and dried. The berries were then added. I only used about 250gm of the white chocolate compound so you should try to get smaller packs. White chocolate compounds from Phoon Huat. Mini bunting ($10.80) from Rainbows and Stickers.
Made peach trifles using this recipe. I replace the fresh fruits with canned peaches. The syrup was drained away before blending the peaches into puree. You can packed 32 cups into a 10 inches cake box. The cups on top layer is slightly higher than the cover but I managed to tape the covers down.
These cute macaroons were ordered from a friend. You have to inform your baker to prepare the shells harder so that they are more suitable for handling and assembling. They could cost $3 to $4 per piece. I used a few pieces on the cake and served the rest in a bowl.
Last but not least, decoratives add a nice touch to your dessert table.
I am so glad for this opportunity to make a dessert table finally! Cheers and have a great 2014!
