Tessa of The Frosted Cake shop and I recently collaborated on a dessert table to showcase fun, festive treats with an approachable display. As you can see, all of the desserts are all wrapped up with bows. We wanted to play off the holiday tradition of gift giving and use bows on all of our treats.
We both tend to favor chic, modern, and pastel displays but wanted to throw in a bit of whimsy and really glam up this setup. For the color palette, we chose bold reds and regal purples that were off-set by crisp white display pieces and details. We also brought in metallics and glitter to really dress everything up for the holidays.
Lemon Cream Cheese Bow Cookies by Melissa:
The treats take on the shape of our theme and are jazzed up with gold glitter flecks.
Present Cakes by Tessa:
I created these mini fondant covered present cakes adorned with red and purple fondant bows to match the 3-tier cake. The mini present cakes include an edible gift tag made from rice paper and gel food color.
French Macarons by Tessa:
The cute, sophisticated cookies are adorable on any tablescape. Their colorful shells are filled with Strawberry- Black Pepper Buttercream.
Present Cookies by Melissa:
Melissa brought sparkle to the max with these sweet sugar cookies with edible disco dust and royal icing bows.
Snickerdoodle Bar Cookies by Melissa:
Bringing back the beloved baker’s twine, these delicious treats are all ready to go!
