Polka Dot Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

I’m finally back for the last guest dessert feature of the day. This one comes from Leoni of Just Call Me Martha in Australia. Leoni is not a professional baker or party planner but managed to create this great display from scratch with the help of her 4 daughters after planning it for several months!  The dessert bar was for her eldest daughter’s 10th birthday.  This polka dot sweets spread included a 2 tier caramel fudge mudcake with caramel fudge buttercream icing, polka dot cupcakes made entirely by the 10 year old birthday girl, chocolate spoons, and macarons. Leoni’s daughter dressed up the cupcakes with wrappers from The Cupcake Wrapper Co. Not only are the wrappers cute, but they are lined as well so the buttercream won’t grease up the wrappers. The Cupcake Wrapper gals sent me these all the way from Australia and they are great.

A few things I love about the table…The dot pattern is timeless and is perfect for kid parties. If you change the scale of the dots to a smaller pattern, it can work for adults as well.  I also love the fabric bunting, the jackson pollack inspired chocolate bark, and the adorable cupcakes and cake.  While Leoni’s daughter helped with the baking, she didn’t see the table until it was ready and apparently cried with joy when she saw the whole spread. That is the best gratification for all that hard work.  Congrats Leoni on such a great job!
