On May 6th I will be marrying the talented young man who photographs my food for this blog (I get very good rates), and yesterday was my very own bridal shower. Since I'm quite partial to Suzy Sweet Tooth sweets, we decided to use Suzy for my food. I did a dessert bar with confections in the spring blues we are using in our wedding. We had chocolate chip brownies, CocoNilla cupcakes, chocolate blossom cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos, mini chocolate crystal cupcakes, and a new recipe: mini Lemon Coconut bundt cakes.
The Lemon Coconut bundts seemed to be the hit of the shower. Along with the chocolate covered pretzels, which always go fast, they seemed to be nibbled up first. And the ladies seemed to be unanimous that those were the favorite. They are a tiny cake made with coconut milk, vanilla, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice. And they are topped with a sweet but tangy glaze of confectioner's sugar and more lemon juice and zest. Who wouldn't love that?
I am excited to do more desserts bars like this for bridal showers, baby showers, or parties. It looks like I may do one for a wedding in August. Time to start brainstorming...
