If you’re in charge of catering a special event such as birthday party or an anniversary party, continue reading to discover a few tasty dessert ideas.
Desserts to prepare for a special occasion:
1. Naughty chocolate fudge cake
If you’re looking to create a chocolate themed dessert which is a whole lot more exciting than a standard chocolate cake, it’s well worth trying to create a delicious chocolate fudge cake. Which will be denser and more flavoursome than a chocolate cake and which should feed more guests as chocolate fudge cake is so rich that your guests will be satisfied with a smaller slice of cake.
So if you’re looking for the perfect chocolate cake idea for an upcoming special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, it’s well worth celebrating with a naughty chocolate fudge cake.
2. An apricot lattice pie
Again, if you don’t want to create a stock standard dessert such as an apple pie. Put a twist on your classic apple pie recipe by using apricot instead of apple to create a tart, sweet apricot pie. In order to ensure that your apricot pie looks inviting it’s well worth using your sweet dessert pastry in order to create a lattice top for your apricot pie.
If you really want to wow your guests, make sure to offer your guests a scoop of French vanilla ice cream to accompany your apricot pie. As your vanilla ice cream will melt nicely onto your guests apricot pie.
3. Chocolate eclairs
If you can remember visiting your local bakery as a kid with your parents in order to purchase fresh chocolate eclairs with boasted freshly whipped cream, that would melt in your mouth, it may be a fun idea to follow a chocolate eclair recipe. Just remember to whip your cream an hour before your party is due to start as the fresher your cream is when your guests bite down into it, the tastier your homemade chocolate eclairs will be.
4. Home made gelato
While you may have tried your hand at creating mouth watering delicious, home made ice cream, you may not have tried to make your own home made gelato. Gelato is a great dessert to serve your guests at a special party as it doesn’t contain dairy products and is a low calorie dessert option that most of your guests will be keen to dig into. Including friends and family members who suffer from a dairy intolerance or who carefully monitor their diets.
As a bonus, if you still plan on serving a heavy dessert such as a chocolate fudge cake, you’ll be able to serve your home made gelato after your main course and before your dessert, in order to cleanse your guests palates. If you’ve been to a fancy restaurant, chances are that you’ve been served a sorbet or gelato in order to cleanse your palate between your courses.
So if you’re in charge of catering for an upcoming special occasion, you simply can’t go wrong learning how to make and serve some of the mouth watering desserts which are listed above.
