Summer Party Ideas | Strawberry Desserts Table

Summer Party Ideas | Strawberry Desserts Table

I styled this mini desserts table for the July/August edition of the French national magazine, Créative . And when choosing a theme, strawberries just seemed the perfect match for a seasonal and super sweet table! Needless to say, I LOVED styling it - not only did I get to design and shoot a brand new printable party theme in another language, but I also got to play with fondant. A lot! And fondant is kinda like modelling clay for grown ups ;) Another fun aspect is that I had baked all the desserts myself (yes, that is fun for me..), from the cookies to the marshmallow pops, the strawberry cookies, cake and cupcakes !! (scroll down to see the recipe links).

DIY Marshmallow Strawberry Shaped Pops

DIY Marshmallow Strawberry Shaped Pops

Okay, so "strawberry shaped" is not quite the correct description. They are marshmallow-y shaped. But that wouldn't say much as a post title, right?! Plus, they do look like strawberries, so we're all good. I often say that  laziness  necessity is the mother of all invention. And these marshmallows pops are a prime example: Take one party-mad 'bird' who absolutely has to have strawberry cake pops on her deserts table, but who also cannot be asked to bake nor make them from scratch. Then enters the humble strawberry-flavored marshmallow and a light-bulb  "I wonder if that works" moment, and there you have it! Strawberry Pops but without the fuss.

DIY Strawberry Shaped Decorated Cookies

DIY Strawberry Shaped Decorated Cookies

Before we get with the tutorial, let me come clean with you. Cookie decorating is not my forte. In fact, I'm slightly scared of them. There, I've said it! Yes, sugar cookies decorated with royal icing scare the heck out of me! No, and I don't have some weird phobia about cookies...it's just that I am not patient at all, and think there are sooooo many steps to decorating cookies that I get bored and don't even bother.  I prefer to oooh and aaaah other people's creations, and so for my parties I often seek the help of the amazing professionals out there.
