To help you with the age-old question of what the heck to do with all things sweet that doesn’t consist of devouring them in one bite, I teamed up with Shari’s Berries to bring you four creative ways to display desserts this holiday season.
Surprisingly, there are no real DIY’s involved because you can literally just whip these up with things you already have or a quick trip to the craft store (or Amazon, in case you’re addicted like me)…
Creative Ways to Display Dessert | A Dessert Stand Wreath
Oh yes, a wreath does double duty during the holidays when you’re looking for a quick way to add texture and interest to the dessert display table. Just lay it flat and place a cake stand in the middle for an eye-catching centerpiece with chocolate covered strawberries to top it off.
How to Display Dessert | Truffle Self Serve Jars
Whether it’s for favors or just as a way to make your display seem well thought out and intentional, prepackage truffles or cookies into mini spice jars with a little ribbon for guests to grab and go.
Dessert Display Ideas | How To Make Brass Food Picks
All for the love of gold, this may be my new favorite thing yet! Instead of boring toothpicks, make a run to the craft store for mini brass rods (in the mini car and airplane models section) to serve truffles or cake pops. Be sure to clean each rod well before use with food, and make sure not to use them acidic foods (nothing more acidic than a ph level of 6) and they’re perfectly food safe and can be hand washed and reused.
Repurpose a Condiment Holder as a Dessert Display
Everyone loves a good chocolate dipped pretzel rod, but figuring out how to get them to stand up in a clever way is a different story! By repurposing a condiment holder and a small plate, you can really show off their chocolatey goodness in all their glory.
Now, what’s the wackiest item or idea you’ve ever had for a dessert display? In case you’re looking for a cocktail to serve along with these creative ways to display dessert, this Sherry Berry cocktail recipe is all too fitting!
