The dessert buffet had a chocolate theme…Godiva pink wrapped truffles, pink and green M&Ms, pink robin eggs, buttercream kisses, chocolate covered pretzels with pink sprinkles, and mini candy bars were offered. The display assembly was uncomplicated, but had a nice effect. I used white plates sitting on top of vases and candlesticks for height, and the pink polka dot elephant cupcake wrappers to hold candy instead of cupcakes. Add a beautiful tablecloth and a little stuffed pink elephant…and it was complete.
Did I mention the chocolate theme? Erica’s pregnancy craving seems to be brownies. I made triple-chunk chocolate brownies in cupcake wrappers and then topped them with whipped ganache frosting and chopped chocolate pieces, and then finished with a cupcake topper for some flair.
For party favors, I made chocolate sugar cookies with a big “C” monogram for the baby’s name, Caroline. They were tied off with a little “thank you” party circle.
