So, you’re looking to provide your guests with amazingly delicious desserts at your next catered event; those that are baked to perfection; treats to end the show. Whether it be a wedding celebration, an anniversary party, a special shower, or even a birthday party, it’s time to think beyond just the cake, and venture into the realm of some other awfully creative and delicious treats!
Brownies and Bars
Honestly, who doesn’t love the chocolatey, ooey-gooey deliciousness of a freshly baked brownie – or caramel nut satisfaction – or even the elegant zing of fresh lemon bars on the palate? The answer is: no one. Everyone appreciates a bite-sized little bar, something sweet that doesn’t necessarily require a knife a fork. Finger food for everyone! And, arranged just the right way, an array of brownies and bars can provide just as striking and stunning décor as a traditional cake.
Another fantastic form of finger food: the cookie. Let your guests crunch and munch on a variety of cookies while mingling among the bunch! By offering an array of options – chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodle – you name it, your guests will be coming back to the stack for more and giggling all the way. We’re all cookie monsters at heart. Cookies are delicious!
Cobbler and Pie
Especially during a catered summer event, fresh berry cobbler and fruit pies seem more than appropriate as options for delicious baked desserts. And, what’s more, is these types of desserts are somewhat out of the ordinary for party events. Why not create a pie and cobbler bar – offering a variety of different flavors from which your guests can choose? And, don’t forget to offer the slices a la mode. Yum!
Although shortcake still falls into the “cake” category, the fluffy, light, and delicious smile on a plate is always a surprising delight. It’s not often that we, or anyone, is treated to huge bowls of slightly sweet whipped cream and strawberries. Your guests will feel like royalty as they are served such a delicate dessert to finish off the party, particularly featuring the local Oregon berries we all love.
It’s time to think outside the box in terms of your dessert choices for your next catered party. Whether you’re a brownie and bar fan, a cobbler and pie connoisseur, a shortcake angel, or even an ice cream or donut devourer, let Busy Bee Catering do the hard work so that you can enjoy the sweet treat!
