I moved into a new place late last year and to celebrate, I had a house warming party and invited some friends and family over for a gathering. My mum was in charge of the savoury dishes and I took over the desserts station. I have never done a dessert table before so I stuck to what I could easily do so that I don’t stress out too much (because moving is already stressful as it is).
The final dessert table featuring some savoury macarons, a colourful macaron tower, 3 tiers of strawberry tarts, a cheese platter, some fruits and some earl grey praline.
This is my very first full sized macaron tower, featuring 4 flavours of macarons: Raspberry Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Lemon Cheese and Earl Grey. Everyone loved the macarons and the lemon cheese macarons were a crowd pleaser.
The strawberry tarts were very popular amongst my guests and everyone commented on how refreshingly light this tart was! This was just a very simple tart with a sweet pastry base, creme patissier filling and some fresh strawberries on top.
It was quite fun preparing a dessert table for an event like this and I would definitely like to do more in terms of what I make. Perhaps more variety? 🙂
