Your anniversary's around the corner and you want to make it a memorable occasion. You've decided to call a few close friends and family but want this year to stand out. Instead of hiring an expensive live band or a DJ, why not cater to gastronomic senses with a careful selection of confectioneries?
Cakes, cupcakes, tarts et al are a few choice sweets to delight the palate. They're enjoyed by everyone and even those without a sweet tooth won't be able to resist a beautiful display. Here are a few ideas to try. You can combine several or stick with just one.
What's better than a mug of your favorite coffee and cake? A combination of the two, of course. Mochaccino cupcakes are small enough to be sampled by guests watching their weight and delicious enough to tempt even the most stubborn of people.
Unlike cakes, this choice takes very little time to prepare. It's easy to make too and you can ask the local patisserie to whip up a batch. If you're into baking, it's a fun project that doesn't involve a lot of hassle.
Put a different spin on cookies by ordering a batch to look like bouquets. Rather than the usual individual cookies, a handful of designs in the shape of flowers put into an edible vase is a choice everyone will remember.
As with the mochaccino cupcakes, the cookies are relatively simple to prepare if you're okay in the kitchen. But if the bother of baking isn't something you want to be saddled with, leave the job to a patisserie that specializes in creative cookies.
Use a cake stand to showcase a collection of beautifully designed and delicious truffles. It's a great way to save money while deviating from the usual cake to celebrate an anniversary. Being around the same size as cupcakes, guests can enjoy just enough to fill themselves while you won't have to worry about cutting slices and having them dry out over time.
A few ideas for truffles are creamy lime and coconut, chocolate orange, fruit ‘n' nut and creamy chocolate. Syrup can enhance flavor and create visual appeal.
Scale down the size of conventional cakes and delight guests with mini cakes. Pretty and tasty, set them on cake stands or flat glass dishes. Order two or three varieties to create a beautiful display and offer more choices to guests.
What's great about mini cakes is that they're complete cakes in themselves, just a lot smaller. Because so much detail must go into creating each piece, you may have to spend a little more than with a large cake. Still, it's a small price for such a special occasion.
If none of these small wonders pique your interest, go for a conventional cake with all the trimmings. Recreate your wedding cake or choose themes that celebrate your married life as it is today. If a baby is on the way, choose a cake with a baby bump theme. Tree motifs, meanwhile, can symbolize growth and strength which carries across to all marriages. Choose a topper to highlight the year of the anniversary or pick a custom design that's fun and contemporary. Ideas are a bright red heart, favorite animation characters, toppers done in the likeness of you and your spouse etc.
