Quick and Easy Halloween/Fall Dessert Table with Spiced Cider Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Putting together a dessert table for Halloween doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. I put this modern, adult table together in about an hour using inexpensive decorations, store-bought food, and free Halloween printables from our site. The only thing I made myself was a hot spiced apple cider with nutmeg, star anise, cinnamon, cloves, peppercorns, and an orange (recipe below).

My goal with the table was to bring fall into our home and to have a little celebration. We all had a lot of fun!

{RECIPE} Tips for Making French Macarons

by Jillian Leslie on

I know, French macarons. We've all heard the horror stories of how hard they are to make. But they are also absolutely gorgeous, look great on a dessert table, and where I come from, cost about $3.50 per macaron. So maybe I need to rethink my fear of trying. :)

To help me, I asked macaron expert and professional baker, Chris Roberson of Frostine Bakery. She makes hundreds of macarons, so if anyone knows how to do it, she does. She's shared not only her recipe but her trade secrets. Thank you, Chris, our lips are sealed (except for the fact that I'm posting it)!

If you read my Facebook page you know I'm always showing off circle fan rosette backdrops. What I love about them is they're easy to make (you just fold paper like a fan and pinch in the middle, then attach a couple fans together) and they add dimension to a wall or dessert table. Here are some of my favorite circle fan rosettes from our site.

{DIY} How to Make a Paper Flower Backdrop

by Jillian Leslie on

I had to share this paper flower backdrop tutorial created by Ellinée because I think it is so beautiful and original. I love the 3D nature of it. How amazing would this look behind a dessert table!

The tutorial comes with the paper flower garland templates and instructions. You just need to download the templates, cut out the flowers, attach the flowers to baker's twine using an embroidery needle, and tie the twine to a pretty branch.

RECIPE: Mini Pecan Pie Pops

by Jillian Leslie on

This recipe comes via Sheryl B's blog, Lady Behind the Curtain. I saw these mini pecan pie pops on Sheryl's Father's Day Dessert Table and had to ask her if I could post the recipe.  How amazing would these be for your July 4th barbecue!

That’s right pie ON A STICK! It seems that everything is going on a stick.  So why not a pie?  It may look intimidating but it is a lot easier then you think and your guests are going to go GAGA (not the Lady kind) over them.
