Sweet Dessert Displays

By  April 08, 2010

Our favorite dessert-display diva Amy Atlas was sweet enough to send us a sneak peek at her latest creations for Brides magazine. These three beautiful buffets are absolutely awe-inspiring. I can’t wait to steal a few of her amazing ideas for my upcoming summer soirees…

Details on the Vintage Table
Amy and her team created an aqua and magenta theme for the decor and desserts.  They included a birds-and-blooms wedding cake and nostalgic goodies like salt water taffy, malted balls, ribbon candy, an old fashioned buttercream cake and dahlia cupcakes.

Chocolate Spice Table
For this tantalizing table, they spiced things up with chili-and-naga curry-infused truffles, rosewater malban, pyramid-shaped chocolates, sesame candy and a macaron tower. For decorative elements, they included lanterns and a pussy willow branch display. They even sewed together burlap fabric to create spice sacks to give the table a “Moroccan-market” motif.

Details on Citrus Chevron Table
For this table, Amy and her team incorporated a bright citrus color palette of tangerine, lemon and lime with a modern chevron zig-zag pattern. They created a ribbon garland, clementine centerpiece, as well as chevron-patterned cakes, cupcakes, popcorn cups and favor bags. They also put out passion-fruit marshmallows and citrus meringue buttercream sandwiches.
