Culinary Crafts in Utah sent over some pictures of a circus themed dessert table they created for a recent birthday party. It looks like the buzz of our dessert bar trend has hit the beehive state!
Culinary Crafts took inspiration from our old fashioned candy bar here. I love how Culinary Crafts made a circus design still look fresh and not too commercial. Some of my favorite details include the asymmetrical layering of the fabric on the table, the striped linen, and the circus tent favors.
Okay, just a tip from the dessert table designer...stack up those gorgeous macarons higher so your guests can see them as they approach the table. I would have also cut down those lollipop sticks so the guests can fully appreciate the beautiful whimsical cake.
Also, for the diy'ers, take note that including pre-made cotton candy sticks on a dessert bar is NOT an easy feat. Culinary Crafts did a great job with this, but they had a staff person replenishing cotton candy sticks to keep them fresh. This is necessary! I've worked with cotton candy several times and often the cotton candy deflates and looks a little scary to put out. We once made lavender cotton candy floral topiaries and that was, well let's say, an interesting project to replenish throughout the night! I don't think I'm going to repeat that one!
Overall, great job Culinary Crafts!
