A birthday party dessert table

I want to share this post because it’s special in so many ways.


Not only did I get to spend a day baking again, something I haven’t done in ages, (because I have become very diligent about my food allergies, as well as my health and fitness routine), but I got to bake for one of the most treasured people in my life, my partners daughter Roxy.  Hence, the giant R.  This family I am a part of has filled my heart and my life in ways I could not even have dreamt of.


Roxy trusted me entirely to throw a birthday brunch for her and about 20 of her friends, and being the complete control crazy, party organizing planner I am, I was embracing every aspect and completely in my element!

The theme was yellow with a hint of green, given it was a day-time event, and Roxy is just a true ray of sunshine in our lives, the color was completely appropriate for this happy occasion, and happy soul we were celebrating.

In terms of catering, we had a great variety of different cheeses, cold meats, fruit, accompaniments, jams, dips, crudites, snacks, lots of carbs, and of course, lots of bubbly!!

Of course, my favorite part (in fact everyone’s), was the dessert table.  All home-baked, made up of chocolate chip sugar cookies, white chocolate rocky road loaded with goodies, and a three layer lemon curd cake, accompanied by lemon curd cupcakes.  We also had some sweets and treats on the side, and everyone got to take home a candy bag of goodies, as well as a box of baked faves.  Needless to say, there was a mere single cupcake, and a couple of slices of cake left for my guy to enjoy.

I had such fun doing this event, especially because I got to put so much love into it.  Doing things yourself, IF you have the time, is always so much more rewarding, I highly recommend you try it if you get the opportunity.  Key is to be well organised and prepared in advance, and then to have a lot of fun with it!

Until next time…
