This featured submission comes from Jeannie of The Pastry Tip. Rather than schedule her son’s high school graduation party at the busy start of summer, Jeannie threw Conor a college send-off party at the end. The dessert table was set-up like someone preparing to pack up for college, with suitcases, books, and mementos integrated into the display. The fleur de lis, used to decorate many of the desserts, is the symbol of Conor’s high school. The vintage typewriters represented his role as editor of the school paper. Jeannie made all of the graduate’s favorite desserts, including white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, lemon sugar cookies, peach cobbler, buckeyes, chocolate cupcakes and Grandma’s fudge. The party honored Conor’s past, while alluding to his bright future. Good luck to Conor as he enters the next stage!
