Kentucky Derby Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions

The Kentucky Derby is three weeks away. This styled shoot came to us from Deanna at Mirabelle Creations. On May 5th, Kentuckians will be celebrating the 138th annual Kentucky Derby. That means lots of big hats, beautiful flowers, and Derby parties! Whether it is a huge gathering or intimate party, it seems like everyone is celebrating somewhere. Deanna’s printable collection was inspired by the traditional rose garland that the winner receives. The rose theme is tied into her printables collection and the table décor. Sweet treats on the dessert table included a white cake from her local bakery jazzed up with a pale blue ribbon and derby cake bunting, bourbon ball pops, Derby pie inspired cupcakes, strawberry meringue, and jockey silk sugar cookies topped with a red rose made from a fruit roll up. Check back later for some FREE printables from Deanna.

Jockey on down for the vendor credits.

    • Hi Melissa, Thanks! Your Derby cupcake recipe looks fantastic! I looked at a ton of Kentucky Derby cupcake recipes online before making these and kind of combined lots of recipes to make them. I will post the recipe later this week.
