Easter Parties

 

Easter is a wonderful time to have fun with the kids and indulge in some favorite Easter sweets! If you’re hosting an Easter party or simply want a small setup at home for your family, you’ll awe everyone with a pastel-colored dessert table filled with delectable candy and treats.

 

Start with a Centerpiece

Start with a great focal point. Use any Easter decor you have available but be creative! We chose a cute wooden rabbit and a watering can as focal points for a vintage look. The watering can made a perfect vase for Spring flowers like hydrangea. Start setting up with a variety of different glass cake stands to add height and a mix of light colors.

 

Fill Cute Jars with Candy

Display Easter candy in different containers your guests can take home. We used mini vintage milk jars and glass favor jars and filled them with Dutch mints.

Style Tip: Add extra Easter touches with fun stickers and “Hoppy Easter”

 

Set a Spread of Tasty Eats

Include a variety of sweets on your dessert table. This time of year it’s easy to find colorful Spring designs on cupcakes and cookies. We found these fun flower and dragonfly sugar cookies at a local grocery store.

 

Get Creative with Presentation

Chocolate candy eggs are a favorite for Easter! Complete your table with a few inventive ways to display your treats. Place colorful candy eggs in mini bird nest favor holders for an adorable presentation. For a pop of color, set them on a pastel blue plate.

 

Transform plain milk jars into delightful bunnies with paper bunny ears! This clever and easy tutorial is an entertaining activity kids will love doing on Easter Sunday.

 

Will you be stealing some of these Easter ideas for your party?

Happy Planning!

The History of Cake Pops

One of the perks of living in a food-centered society is always having something new and delicious to eat, and if that food happens to be a dessert, even better! Some of the greatest culinary works of art are desserts. Chefs and home cooks alike take pride in satisfying people’s sweet tooth with innovative desserts that focus on presentation as much as flavor. One of the most recent of these sweet works of art to explode on the market is the cake pop. The youthful whimsy of a lollipop and the sophistication of specialty cake flavors make for a fun and delicious, yet classy, dessert for anyone to enjoy on just about any occasion. But how did cake pops come about?
Donut Holes and Cake Balls, Oh My!

The concept of a ball of sweet cake is actually not new. Donut holes, though the cake itself is only one or two basic flavors, come in yummy round balls glazed or coated with sweet toppings like chocolate glaze or cinnamon and sugar crumb. These, however, have pretty much stayed in the “breakfast pastry” realm of desserts with only a basic, but perfectly acceptable, quality of presentation and have never really moved beyond that category. But this is why a donut hole is a donut hole, and we love them just the way they are. This brings us to cake balls. Again, cake balls, like donut holes, are actually not a new concept, though the purpose of the cake ball then and now have changed. There is little to define the exact when and where of the cake ball’s origin, but there is one thing that is clear: the original purpose of the cake ball was to use leftover cake. The leftover, and potentially stale, cake would be crumbed and rolled into balls with icing or some other binding ingredient, which makes it denser and typically sweeter than normal cake, and then coated with chocolate or other sweet exterior. Then, voilà! You saved the original cake by making it into something new!
Popularization of Cake Pops

Cake balls became so popular that bakers began making them from the start, no waiting for the right time to revive last week’s birthday cake. This then led to the stroke of genius that made cake balls into the cake pops that we know and love: why not put a cake ball on a stick! Cake pops have been popping up all over, from online stores like Amazon, to bakeries, coffee shops, and home kitchens. And, thanks in large part to the generous creativity of the cake pop queen herself, Bakerella, who really put the spotlight on the artistic potential of cake pops, they have become today’s go-to dessert, whether you want one for an afternoon treat, for your kid’s birthday party, for your next corporate event, or even for your wedding. Their versatility makes them perfect for any occasion. Just make sure you have enough to go around!

The History of Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate has been enjoyed as a special treat as far back as 1100 BC. It has been reported that the Aztec and Mayan civilizations enjoyed chocolate as a beverage and even used cocoa beans as currency. As cocoa spread around the world different versions emerged. Candy makers added milk and sugar to create a creamy variety, others added nuts and caramel to create stick treats. Today there is a chocolate out there sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

Just like chocolate, strawberries have a long & rich history. They were found growing wild in Italy as early as 234 BC. Even Native American tribes cultivated the aromatic fruit from as early as the 1600’s.  The name itself has some myth around it as well.  From the idea that people put straw around the base of the plant for both nutrients & protection, from the runners (vines) of the plant that “strew” (spread) about.  Many people love strawberries because of their sweet taste and desirable smell and for centuries has been a favorite centerpiece or garnish if desserts & salads.

Although both chocolate and strawberries have been around for a long time, it was not until a woman named Lorraine Lorusso combined the two in the 1960s that the decadent chocolate covered strawberry was created. Lorraine worked at a small gourmet store called the Stop N’ Shop in Chicago. She took a tempered version of the gourmet chocolate served in the store and dipped the seasons’ freshest berries into the mixture. She allowed the chocolate to harden and then served them to paying customers. The treat was an instant success.

Since then fruit and chocolate have been seen as the perfect pair. You can now find all types of fruit, both fresh and dried, covered in chocolate.

American Dream Cakes uses only premium ingredients when creating our chocolate covered strawberries, which are available only for Valentine’s Day weekend.  During that time we usually have some available in the case for walk-in pickups, or you may order larger amounts ahead of time.  Remember to call & order the week before to ensure you get this magical dessert for your special someone.

Valentine’s Day is Just Around the Corner!

The holiday season isn’t over yet, in fact a certain day celebrating love is just around the corner! It’s a great time to show the people in your life how much you care about them. Which is what Valentine’s Day is all about! But how did Valentine’s Day become a holiday celebrating love? And when did Valentine’s Day start?

 

Valentine’s Day actually started with the Romans as a fertility festival, Lupracalia. Lupracalia occurred on February 13thand isn’t the traditional Valentine’s Day that we think of, but rather one that celebrated couples coming together and eventually getting married. Overtime, this tradition changed with the influence of Christianity and different Saint Valentine’s contributing to the story of what we know to be Valentine’s Day. The Valentines all have a few things in common: they were all Christians who lived during the Roman period when Christians were being persecuted, and they were all martyred. One of these St. Valentine’s was actually imprisoned when he supposedly fell in love with the jailer’s daughter. The woman would come and take care of him each day and overtime they fell in love. It is this Valentine that may have coined the term “From Your Valentine”. This is because it is believed that this particular Valentine wrote a letter to the young woman signed “From Your Valentine.” Making his letter technically the first Valentine in history.

 

The Valentine’s Day we know and love sure has changed a lot over the years! But one thing is for sure: it is a fun holiday meant to show just how much you appreciate the people in your life. In fact, Valentine’s Day is the second biggest holiday in which people send out cards! But you know what else people give out on Valentine’s Day? Chocolate! Chocolate actually wasn’t apart of Valentine’s Day celebrations until the 1840s. This is when Richard Cadbury marketed his new chocolate recipe to the masses. Chocolate had already been popularized, but was found to be too bitter by the public, and so Cadbury’s recipe promised to be sweeter and less bitter. So what’s with Valentine’s Day? Well, Cadbury centered his marketing campaign around the holiday and ever since then chocolate and Valentine’s Day have gone together with modern day chocolates and candies shaped like hearts.

 

And what better place to get your chocolate than locally, at Toot Sweet? Our chocolate is all homemade and orders can be customized just for the loves of your life! We offer sugar free chocolate and we even have gluten free options!

Wedding Catering Services No matter what you’re planning to serve, and no matter where in Austin Texas you’re hosting your wedding reception, we have all you need for the perfect wedding reception! Our Wedding Catering Menu will show you just a sample of what we can prepare. We’ve broken it down this way:Plated Meal Wedding Reception ServiceThis is where your guests are seated and served at their dining table – very similar to what you would experience at a restaurant or hotel. This service is more traditional and formal, and will require more time for this portion of the special event than buffet service. It will more than likely cost you more than buffet service simply because of the number of Wait Staff needed to serve your group is greater than what’s needed for buffet service.You can modify this service by having some things already on the tables for the guests when they’re ready to sit down and eat. Depending on what you’ve chosen to serve, you can “pre-plate”:Appetizers Breads, Rolls and Butters, Jams, Jellies Salads Sauces, Salad Dressings and Condiments Beverages – Water and Iced Tea can be poured and placed at each place setting Buffet Wedding Catering Service You’ve all seen these. Banquet tables, either grouped all together or scattered about to create “food stations” for the guests who actually go to those tables and are either served by wait staff, or, help themselves to whatever reception menu item they want.  This service type does take up some floor space so the guests can move around the room and around and among the buffet tables. Your wedding caterer, wedding coordinator or venue attendant can guide you on recommended placement of the buffet tables.This is a more economical presentation, and depending on the event, can allow for a bit more guest interaction than a plated meal.  This is probably why food stations are so popular.  For a group of people that may or may not be familiar with each other, this is a great way to get people to mingle, and to entertain them.With buffet service, there is a bit more control over the time it takes to feed your group.  We can calculate how many buffet lines are needed to serve your guests in the time frame you’ve provided and plan accordingly. CUSTOM SPECIAL EVENT MENUSWe can take care of all the details for your next Special Event Catering!We can help you with any special event catering you’re planning in Dallas, Fort Worth or anywhere in the metroplex, no matter how big or small …we can cater it all.With our years of experience serving groups from 6 or more to 1,200 we’ve got the know how and all the catering tips you’ll need to host the perfect special event. We can prepare and provide all you need for that special occasion catering or reception catering.What menu to serve? And how much do I need?Several factors influence the answers to these questions to ensure you’re offering just the right catering menu that will compliment the purpose of the corporate special event or social event. The time alotted and the area or venue will also effect what a professional caterer will recommend or create for you.What is the purpose of the special event?Is this a celebration, corporate training meeting, working lunch, retirement party, corporate banquet or wedding reception? Each of these special events have their own unique purpose and any professional caterer will know the difference and be able to suggest appropriate menus and services that will enhance the outcome of your event. Will this be a Breakfast, Lunch or Banquet or an Appetizer Reception?What is the budget being used to plan the special event?One of the most important questions is how much money you have to spend. Your budget needs to be sufficient enough and realistic for the plans you’re making so start noting all the things you’ll need or want for the event and put dollar amounts to those items and see what your budget really is.Who’s been invited?Are you hosting a special event with all your friends and family? Is this a VIP corporate client appreciation celebration? Is this a grand opening for a new store, office building, or new business location? Are you launching a new product or service? Or, is this a celebration of a milestone in your life like a wedding reception, anniversary or birthday? These details also matter when you initially begin planning your special event and catering.Will there be seating?Is this a walk-and-talk, mix-and-mingle corporate special event or a formal affair? A seated dinner, or a grand reception? The food and beverage catering possibilities may be restricted based on these answers. You would not wish to serve a steak dinner with limited or no seating available for guests to sit down and actually cut their steak so small appetizer size items are what you’d want. Your caterer should be able to recommend appropriate menu items that compliment your event.What level of service should you use for your catered special event?Catered Food StationsTrendy and great for cocktail parties, grand opening catering, and wedding receptions.Plated Meal Catering ServiceFor more formal affairs like a business luncheon or board of directors dinner, and where there is ample budget.Banquet Buffet ServiceAn economical choice for catered lunches, dinners or banquets and for groups of all sizes.
