French Chic Dessert Table - Yani's 1st Birthday

French Chic Dessert Table

Since Relish boasts of dainty Parisian decor, it was decided that the dessert table should follow this theme. I couldn't have been more thrilled! I love all things French! I would live in France if I could. Sigh.

Anyway! I was really happy with how the dessert table turned out. It blended well with its surroundings, and I love that it's not something that you would normally see in a first birthday party. 

Instead of having just one big cake, I decided to have three smaller ones.

The first is a gorgeous hand-painted chocolate truffle cake with yema filling. It was difficult to slice into something this pretty, but cake is cake! It's meant to be enjoyed by craving tastebuds. :)

This is the prettiest, most artsy slice of cake I've ever seen!

Next is this dainty butter vanilla cake with cream cheese buttercream filing in pastel pink ombre layers, topped with three pink fondant peonies. I unfortunately don't have a decent shot of the beautiful ombre layers inside. :(

Last but most certainly not the least is the classic crowd-pleaser, red velvet cake with cream cheese filling, covered in ruffled whipped cream.

A dessert table wouldn't be complete without some cupcakes, would it?

These pretties are apple walnut cupcakes topped with a big fondant open peony.

 And these are peanut butter and bacon cupcakes topped with a white chocolate mini macaron. Que c'est beau!

There were chocolate-covered rice krispie pops, candies, marshmallows, and milk chocolate balls, too!

And what French-themed dessert table will be complete without some macarons?



As an added accent (and keepsake!), I had the menu hand calligraphed by Guillain (Boogie) Garcia. Charmant, don't you think?
