You are hosting a party soon and since your guests know that you have one great sweet tooth, they are expecting the desserts for the party to be the best they’ll ever have. You are willing to meet those expectations. The only problem is you have no idea where to begin. To help you create unforgettable desserts for your party that will be the talk of the town for a very long time, here are some tips to help you do just that.
Plan, plan and plan
Of course, the first thing that you need to do is to plan the dessert menu for your party. Online, you will find lots of decadent dessert recipes that you may want to use for your party. It is important that you choose dessert recipes that are in line with the theme of the occasion. For example, if the party will be held during the Christmas holidays, you would want to go for Christmas cookies and pastries. If the theme of the party is Hawaiian, you should include tropical fruits as ingredients in the desserts. For cocktail parties, chocolates with liquor are perfect choices.
Works of art
The taste of the desserts is not the only thing that would matter. It is also imperative that you are able to package, display, and make the desserts appear as delicious as they are. To make things unique, you can create cupcakes, cookies, and cakes in unconventional shapes and colors so that they will easily rouse the curiosity of the guests. Use exciting display towers and tiered shelves to showcase the delicious works of art.
The chocolate fountain
Desserts won’t be complete without the chocolate fountain. Line up the dessert table with all sorts of fruits and sweet items that can be dipped in the chocolate fountain for the enjoyment and pleasure of your guests. From kids to adults, everyone is sure to have a grand time with your chocolate fountain.
All the help you can get
Yes, you are the host and organizer of the party but it does not mean that you have to do everything. Even if you are the perfectionist type who would rather do things herself the perfect way than to rely on unreliable help, you still could use some extra hands in preparing the desserts for your party. For one, you should hire the services of a dessert chef. With so many pieces to bake, it would exhaust all your time and energy if you intend to do this yourself. Find someone who’s an expert on baking and culinary so you can expect the best kinds of desserts. Another help you should get is on the display of the desserts. Be sure to get the planner’s ideas and suggestions and approve of them prior to the party so you know that everything is in order.
Invest in reliable equipment
Finally, you need to have reliable kitchen equipment to nail this one. From cream chargers to cream whipper, you need to find high quality cooking and baking tools to ensure top quality of your desserts.
That’s it. Have fun on your party!
