Easter Dessert Bar
Yesterday I shared a look at my Easter Party prep on our patio, so today I wanted to share a closer look at the gorgeous dessert bar I created and all the details for recreating it at home. Get ready for some yummy treats!
Whether you whip up a vanilla cake from scratch or buy one at your local grocery, the key is accessorizing it properly. First, you need an adorable cake stand; mine is the Grandin Road White Cake Pedestal. Then you need to decorate the top for Easter. I took a single faux peony (trimmed the stem) and placed on top of my cake. I surrounded the stem with faux pastel eggs. The cake looks most elegant when you keep the decorations to one side. (I linked some fun items below that will work well for decorating!)
Again, choose a homemade recipe or store bought vanilla cupcakes. (I recommend taking the wrapping off store-bought ones to look home-made!). Buy this package of edible icing bunny feet on Amazon. Top your cupcakes and serve! Oh and this makes for a great activity for the kids if you decide to go the route of a cupcake decorating station! (I linked a few other cute cupcake topper ideas to shop below.)
There’s no shortage of Chocolates Bunnies available whether you are at the grocery or the drug store, so swoop up some of your prettiest finds and display them on a cake stand alongside your desserts. These make the display even more festive and make for fun party favors!
I am in love the accessories that bring this display to life. To add color to the console, I draped my Grandin Road faux Floral Garland along the back! It’s amazing how it makes the desserts pop!! I served the desserts alongside the sweetest Easter Plates. Then throughout my patio I sprinkled gold bunnies and Grandin Road Designer Eggs. I especially love the eggs displayed on the cake pedestals as a centerpiece on our coffee table! (See more decorations to shop below!).
