November 27, 2019

Now that Thanksgiving only a day away, here are last-minute tips for you to make your celebration more fancy by having an affordable and chic dessert table.

 

Dessert tables have become a signature display at weddings, bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, and any event.

Why is the dessert table so essential in every event? I always think it's a good idea to focus on the majority of your party decoration around a buffet and dessert table because it serves multi-purposes, one of the functions of the dessert table, it can also serve as a vocal decor in any gathering.

 

To cut down the expense of the party, instead of decorating the entire room, I think it is much better creating one fabulous themed feature wall that will entice everyone's intention.

Putting together an impeccable dessert table may seem like a daunting chore, but we are here to help your Instagram or Pinterest picture-perfect inspiration come to life.

 

These few necessary items you need to decor your dessert table to the max! Of course, between choosing the spot on where to put the table, which table-cover to use, what dessert to have, and anything in between should be essential, but here I'm going to make a list for things that will make your table dessert stand out without having to splurge your money.

 

Cake stand

I think each household has to have a beautiful cake stand on their collection; cake stand enhances the elegance of your desserts, highlighting the detailed and artistry of your pastries. Also, it will make your decor stand out, and you can reuse it every time you host a party.

Choose a versatile color like gold, white, black, or silver. Two of the cake stands should be enough for one table, but if you can afford more, it would be even better.

 

Cupcakes

You can make or put any dessert that you like on your dessert table, such as candies, cakes, cookies, cheeses, any pastries you can imagine, but if you are in a tight budget, cupcakes are my choices to go. It is affordable, effortless to make, and you can color coordinate with the rest of your decor. One, most importantly, about cupcakes is not just popular dessert among children, but the adult will love it too. So, in conclusion, color-coordinated cupcakes it's a decor itself.

 

Fresh Flowers

A fresh flower is always a beautiful addition to every decor, and it can create a delightful ambiance to the room. Flowers bring positive emotional feelings to those who enter the room and make the place more welcoming and create a relaxed atmosphere; it has an immediate impact on happiness. Besides, it can elevate your decor beyond the cliche.

 

Candles and String Lights

A candle can set a certain mood, convey an air of sophistication. It illuminates your decor and a great way to tweak the overall ambiance of the place and grant another touch of luxurious and individual persona. 

 

Small Ornaments

You need a small ornament to complete the decor and a representation of your event. For instance, put little pumpkins to indicate a Thanksgiving celebration or Christmas ornament to celebrate a Christmas and Birthday hats for birthday parties

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that we talked about the dessert table, here is one of a recipe for cupcakes to complete your decor. The recipe for Triple Chocolate Butterscotch Recipe, Delicious, satisfying and tasty.

 

 

 

 

Butterscotch Frosting 


1 ¼ cups butterscotch ice cream topping, divided (you can have store-bought or make it your own, recipe provided below)
¼ butter
¼ cup shortening
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 ½ cups brown sugar

1 cups of powder sugar
Chocolate butterscotch candies

 

 

 

Instruction

  1. I use 1 triple chocolate cake mix and just follow the instruction on how to make the cupcakes.

  2. Divide batter between 24 cupcakes liners. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Use a straw to poke several holes in the top of each cupcake, or I use an empty condiment bottle tip to make holes and fill the cupcakes with butterscotch sauce.

  3. For store-bought butterscotch ice cream topping: Heat 1 cup of the butterscotch ice cream topping the microwave for 30 seconds. Then fill the hole with butterscotch sauce with condiment bottle or drizzle the topping into the holes in each cupcake and let it cool down entirely.  For homemade Butterscotch sauce recipe, you can find it below.

  4. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and shortening on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla, ¼ cup butterscotch ice cream topping, salt with the mixer running. Slowly add the powdered sugar until thoroughly mixed in. Increase to high speed and beat for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Top each cupcake with a swirl of frosting. And put the chocolate butterscotch candy on top.

 

 

Butterscotch Sauce 


¼ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
¾ cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt

 


Instruction
 

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Then whisk in cream, let the mixture bubble and thicken for 5 minutes without stirring. Bring to boil. Cool to room temperature.
