I posted last week about a project that we were working on at Amy Atlas Events. Since today is the first day of fall, we decided to create a fall-inspired dessert story to kick off the new season. A faux-bois pattern and acorns were the inspiration for the story.
We created a lovely faux-bois paper for the backdrop as well as a custom acorn garland to drape over the backdrop. We'll provide a template for the acorn garland tomorrow!
For desserts, we made two almond fondant cakes and placed them on tree trunk cake stands. We also created pistachio cinnamon meringue (we'll provide a recipe for the meringues tomorrow) and tuiles filled with spiced-apple custard. We wrapped hazelnut truffles with custom faux-bois tissue paper.
