Halloween Sweet Table!

We’ve been hired to create a sweet table for a Halloween birthday party, we thought some of you may be interested in the step-by-step process of creating a sweet table. We did a post similar to this a while back but didn’t focus on the steps for baking  . The first step is pick your theme/colour combo and then plan your desserts/baked goods around both. It’s easy for us since the theme was already picked and we went with black and white as colours. Remember the key to a sweet table is levels! We will put our cookies on flat dishes in the front and then have a few cupcake towers and use boxes to elevate some of our other desserts. The other key thing to do is plan ahead and use your freezer!!!

We have made all the sugar cookies and iced them and are now storing them in the freezer for one week. The trick to proper storage, is to use air tight containers and parchment paper between each cookie. Let them defrost at room temperature for several hours (keeping them in the container) do not defrost in the fridge, the condensation can ruin your cookies. We’ve also made our cupcakes which we will freeze till next week and then ice them the night before. Over the next week we’ll purchase a few candies and details for the table. This means that the day before the party, we’re not trying to do a million things, maybe just a thousand (haha). The day before the party, we’ll ice our cupcakes and make meringue ghost pops, stay tuned for the rest of the pics!
