Mini Desserts


I am quite enchanted with tiny little desserts.

Recently our Food & Beverage Director started serving mini desserts in the restaurant. They are so darn cute.

While looking for bases for my cupcake cloche, I came across some tiny little liqueur glasses and decided to make something out of a cake I had in the refrigerator.

I cut two little strips of the citrus cake and stuck them in the glass.

I melted a teaspoon of orange marmalade and spooned it over the top.

Since it was Halloween, I had some mini KitKat bars and I split one in half and stuck it in the glass.

YUM!

It is just big enough to satisfy a sweet craving, yet small enough that you aren't wasting a ton of calories. I think it would be a great way to serve dessert at a dinner party. You might even make two or three different minis and serve them all. Your guests would get a small dose of three different desserts. How fun would that be? They would also be great on a Christmas buffet alongside the other regular sized desserts.

If any of you make any, please let me know what you made. I love to get new ideas!

Counterscape

Sometimes I just don't have the time to set a full dining table.

It was a very busy hectic weekend getting all the deck planters cut down and ready to retire for the upcoming winter.

I took some of the flowers that still looked nice and made this arrangement at the end of my kitchen counter.

My mother-in-law gave us some nice red "torpedo" tomatoes and I incorporated them with my onions, squash, pumpkin and turkey.

I will enjoy this "counterscape" for the next few days.

If you don't have the time or inclination to set a full table, you, too, may enjoy just creating a little bit of autumn appreciation on your countertop.
