Lori from Lori's Place, baker of some of the most beautiful decorated sugar cookies, just sent me the most adorable box of holiday treats. Thank you, Lori! I'm trying to save them until tomorrow, but my five-year-old daughter has other plans. We'll see how much willpower I have. :)

We're seeing a lot of mini desserts for Thanksgiving. What's great about them is they're self-serve, so no need to worry about cutting cakes and pies, and also they're cute and precious, adding an interesting visual to your dessert spread. Some great ideas for mini desserts are cupcakes, pies, crisps, caramel apples,  trifle, tartlets, petit fours, and cheesecakes. Here are some ideas from parties on our site to inspire you...

If you see my blog posts or read my Facebook and Twitter posts, you know I'm a huge fan of creative cakes. I think if you're going to splurge on one item for your party in terms of money or time, a cake is a great way to go.

I've noticed some new cake trends (in addition to all the beautiful rainbow cakes and ruffle cakes) on our main site that I wanted to share. Take a look (and click on the photo to see what party it's from)...
