What's Cooking in Carolina?

Mainly creative menus and recipes (usually healthy) and always from scratch with tips for party planning, theme parties, weddings and decorating tips so you can give swank parties or dinners to delight your guests from a part time caterer, owner/operator of a coming soon Entree Vous, but mainly a cook and eater who grows much of her own food and loves to laugh.

Dessert Party

I promised I would show you pictures of the dessert party we did for 250. Actually, it is taking a lot of liberty to say WE did. Marne, our pastry chef made 99% of the food. I was, for once, the assitant chef and helped because I like to help and I get to learn some new things too, like making meringue mushrooms. As you can see, Marne makes beautful cakes and desserts, so if you need some, give us a call! Diane, my partner did all of the flowers and set up. She makes beautiful flower arrangements.
Withour further ado:

The Menu:

Carrot Cake

Black Magic Chocolate Cake with Meringue Mushrooms

Three tiered Packages Cake (Vanilla with Almond buttercream, Coconut with Orange Buttercream, Lemon with Raspberry Buttercream)

Spiced candied pecans

    Wow!! That was great! I loved looking at all of those, especially the meringue mushrooms--I'm really crazy about those.
