Happy Fall – Faux-Bois Fun!

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest

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.

Happy fall!

    my wedding 10 years ago next week (!) was done with an autumn fallen leaves theme. We had individual 3 tiered cakes for each guest. It was all chocolate with chocolate fondant and it was sitting in some raspberry yummyness with acorns on the bride and grooms cake. They tasted like gourmet hostess cupcakes…. I love this table you did… it would have fit right in!
