Dessert // Neapolitan Dessert Bar

As promised, I am back to share all the photos from our Neapolitan Dessert Bar.  I recently teamed up with Tessa Lindow Huff, owner of The Frosted Cake Shop, to produce a fun dessert concept.  We were so thrilled that it was featured on Amy Atlas Events & The Tomkat Studio last week, and we are so excited to share some of our favorite photos that were not featured to give you a real inside peak.

Styled by both myself and Tessa, the tablescape was comprised of products and display pieces from The TomKat Studio and The Frosted Cake Shop.  Photography courtesy of Chantel Elder of Eleakis and Elder Photography.


The photos depict scenes from our Neapolitan Dessert Bar including mini layer cakes inspired by Rosie of Sweetapolita.
