Beach Themed Bridal Shower Dessert Table

Staying with sunny beach days, a perfect time to blog this beautiful Beach Themed Bridal Shower organized by Wendy for her daughter, Ashleigh. This was a pretty and perfect celebration for the women in Ashleigh’s life just before she began her married adventure. A great way to start in a gorgeous setting with bachelorette fun and games, delicious food and a fancy carefree array of turquoise and white sweet treats.

The cake was layers of rich vanilla sponge and passion fruit buttercream that I covered in an elegant Geldhof white chocolate ganache. Driftwood, larger shells and rope detail I made by moulding sugar paste into Karen Davies Driftwood and Shell Mould. The smaller shells were moulded using Fondant Solutions Mould. I had an idea to use thin strips of turquoise and white sugar paste as waves kissing the side of the cake with crushed biscuit ‘sand’ & tiny cream pearls for water bubbles. My favourite part are the 2 hand-moulded embossed hearts representing the young lovers who celebrated their engagement on the beach.

Pastel turquoise macaron shells filled with a wave of Flavour Nation naartjie white chocolate ganache and Callebaut white Crispearls and decorated with a royal icing wave, sprinkles of golden sugar ‘sand’, white ‘water droplet’ beads and a sugar paste shells were such a pretty addition to the cake order.

Swirls of white and turquoise meringue kisses in Mixed Berry Flavour with turquoise and white beads and sea themed sprinkles were another tasty addition to the dessert table.

Ice-cream flavoured, star fish adorned cake pops and sea jellies I made using grapetizer, crushed biscuits again for ‘sand’, crispearls and chocolate ganache filled shells, sat sweetly (excuse the pun) amidst other turquoise and white sweet delights to complete a stunning Beach Themed Bridal Dessert Table.

Thank you Wendy for all the hours and effort you put into the planning for this beautiful celebration for Ashleigh and her friends. Thank you for being such a loyal and enthusiastic friends and client.

Meringues Kissed with Flavour Nation White Chocolate

Meringue Kisses in Blue, Pink and White

It is always fun to just play with flavour and colour and to experiment with new products. This time it was flavouring my meringue kisses in swirls of blue, pink and white with Flavour Nation White Chocolate. I then sprinkled these tiny sweet swirls with Bella Rose Sprinkles in matching pastels (thanks Auryn for your colourful bottles of sprinkles).

The small puffs of meringue swirls needed something sweet & dainty to rest on so I baked these mini doughnuts flavoured with Flavour Nation Chocolate Marshmallow and then covered them with a dashing pink glaze before adding more sprinkles and the meringue kisses. Biting into these treats was heavenly with the delicious soft baked doughnut, sweet glaze and then the crunch of meringue to complete the taste symphony!
