Birthday Party Sweet Table

Karen went out all for her husband’s birthday party this year. We won’t give away Brian’s age (but here’s a clue — look for the candle on the birthday cake).

As well as ordering a sweet table from DesignerCookies, Karen asked us to help prepare and serve hors d’ouevres and drinks. The venue (Karen and Brian’s home) was beautiful. It easily accommodated the 45+ guests who came to visit and celebrate with the birthday boy and his family.

The sweet table included a chocolate ganache cake, chocolate caramel cupcakes (large and miniature) chocolate mocha cupcakes (large and miniature), chocolate cake pops, large and miniature sugar cookies, chocolate-covered pretzels and an assortment of candies.
