Tara Guerard Soiree by Liz Banfield

I know dessert stations have been around for awhile, but my sweet tooth is kicking in and I wanted to share some delicious eye candy and maybe these will inspire some ideas for your fall entertaining. Here, individual cakes were offered for each guest, complete with monogrammed chocolate pieces.  Photo by Liz Banfield.

Martha Stewart‘s team asked me to help on the wedding of her then assistant, getting married outside of Nashville, Tennessee.  This fall flavored dessert table is obviously magazine worthy. Photo by Josh Reeder.

For our bride that had an eclectic aesthetic, a whimsical woodland themed dessert display by Jim Smeal was full of special details. Coconut cakes featured meringue mushrooms, and the pecan pies had graham and marzipan leaves. Other treats included handpainted chocolate quail eggs (served in nests) and mini mushrooms.

Jim Smeal really outdid himself on this pie display (in lieu of a wedding cake all together).  Pecan, Peach Almond, Raspberry Frangipani, Sweet Potato, and Apple Cranberry, and Walnut were just some of the offerings. Doing the tasting for these was pretty amazing! Photo by Liz Banfield.

Something easily passed and still photo worthy at the end of the evening, are personal hot chocolates. Quick and easy, and gives everyone a little sweet satisfaction.  Photo by Liz Banfield.
