A dessert party can actually be hosted any time of the day, but a late evening party is typically best.
With desserts, the tiny touches really do completely the big pictures.
If have a tasty pound cake and want to make it look beautiful when serving?
Most of the fancier desserts can be frozen and thawed in warm weather for only about an hour.
Nice thin swirls of a flavored sauce across the dessert plate works especially well with a nice torte or cheesecake.
Mini chocolate chips are fabulous when coupled with fresh raspberries and a rich chocolate cake.
Any particular season coming up? A seasonal dessert leaves a great impression on your guests.
Chocolate-coated strawberries are an ideal dessert party treat. You can begin with a carton of large ripe strawberries with stems.
Hold strawberries by the stem, dipping them one by one into the cup.
On a large plate coated with wax paper, rest the strawberries (which should only be dipped just over halfway) and chill for about forty-five minutes.
Always pre-slice cakes, but serve to guests one at a time. Do not have the cake already on a dessert plate, unless the event is directly after a dinner.
Dessert parties are becoming more popular and a little more sophisticated, so soft lighting, candles, and appropriate music are a must.
Remember not to serve pies, as they are informal and casual and interfere with the class and mystique of a dessert party.
