Well...Dessert Fest 2010 was absolutely amazing. For those of you who don't know what it is, I was invited by my friend Mai to co-chef DESSERT FEST 2010! Mai learned how much I loved desserts while we were in Namibia and I would squeal at the sight of a pink cookie at a german bakery, or ooh and ahhh over a passionfruit mousse in the middle of Sossusvlei. Mai and her friend Josh hosted the party last year and it was a success. I was very excited to be a part of TEAM DESSERT FEST 2010! this year.
You can click on the individual links below to recipes on my blog for what I made for dessert fest.
There was a whole lot of this:
A little bit of salt adds a whole lot of yum!
Cookies for snack
Chocolate Tart with Hazlenut Crust
The cookie plate! by Josh
A superb strawberry shortcake by Josh
Another big hit of the night - key lime cheesecake!
Some of Mai's delicious, home made ice cream
Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle (Mai)
Pumpkin Scuffin (me). Scuffin = muffin scone combined
Yellow Buttermilk Cupcakes with Swiss Merengue Buttercream
Devil's Food Cake (Josh)
We lost count, but I think we used about 4 cartons of eggs, at least 6 packages of butter, and close to 10 pounds of sugar. AND ALL THE WEEKEND BEFORE HALLOWEEN!
All in all, DESSERT FEST 2010! was a great success. Everyone had a great time (or a sugar rush) and the co-chefs all had a blast cooking together!
