At our recent styled shoot, Going to the Chapel in Style, dessert curator Connie Mottle of Dessert Divas created a one-of-a-kind dessert table equipped with cookies, brownies, pies, s’mores shooters AND cupcakes. Whew! What a sugar rush!
As an official dessert curator for the past three years, Connie loves the creativity that comes with the craft. “There is nothing better than pairing a few of my favorite things…sweets, creativity and styling! All to bring my client a one-of-a-kind styled dessert buffet – no matter what the occasion!”
Connie takes the time to really get to know her clients’ style and personality so that their buffets are customized to their individual likes. They even go above and beyond, using Pinterest pages and incorporating special or personal elements into the design upon the clients’ request. As you can see, she did an excellent job holding true to the color scheme, even personalizing the shoot with “Bride & Groom” cupcakes and a handmade cake topper.
The featured dessert was a stylish, scaled-down version of what Connie calls “FooFoo”, a dessert her Grandmother would make when they were kids.
Here’s how you make it!
Ingredients: angel food cake (or any other “white” cake), blueberry filling, whipping cream
Step 1: Break apart the cake and pack in the bottom of glass
Step 2: Pour in your blueberry filling
Step 3: Layer with whipping cream and repeat if necessary
Step 4: Top with fresh blueberries and mint leaf
To get the desired layered look, Connie says it’s best to pipe in the filling and whipped cream. For an added touch, she used antique glassware but any glassware will do. The same versatility applies to the cake and different fruits/flavors. “Sky is the limit!”
Embellished with a cake-topper, this simple dessert is turned into an elegant arrangement that any bride-to-be can easily prepare.
