some strawberry truffles and a GIVEAWAY!! Amy Atlas’s Sweet Designs

 

UPDATE! Congratulations to Stacy! Her comment was randomly drawn to win the book. Thank you to all for participating! Check back next week for another great giveaway.

I’m also feeling rather lame in my party ambitions after reading the fabulous list of themes you’ve all either hosted or hope to one day host. Mermaids, poodles, princesses, ladybugs, pirates, dragons and skulls. Gardens and tea and chocolate and bubbles. Fish, baseball, Monopoly, owls, bunnies and vintage robots.  Jane Austen and Downtown Abbey. Luau, travel, masquerade, sassy diva, rock star, popping out baby shower, Broadway, milk and cookies, cowgirl and pink zebras. Glow in the dark, superhero, camping, lego, ninja, candyland and Star Trek. Hot air balloons, sprinkles and polka dots. Cats and dogs and bees. Seinfeld, World of Warcraft (my husband would appreciate that), Alice in Wonderland, Dr. Seuss, Harry Potter, Eloise and Wizard of Oz. Lemons and strawberry and sushi.  Or a 1950s ice cream shoppe,  1950s housewife, roaring ‘20s or (my decade of choice) ‘80s. Sheesh, I better up my game!!

 

 

I just got a second copy of Amy Atlas’s crazy fantastic book, Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It, and since I give and give and give, I’m giving it to one of you. If you don’t already have this 300-plus page book o’ party design fabulousness from dessert stylist pro Amy Atlas, then I’m guessing it’s on your wish list.

 

Want to learn more about what’s inside? I yak on at length about Sweet Designs in this review HERE.

 

And here’s one more glimpse, at a yummy recipe for Strawberry Truffles, found on p. 153, part of the oh-so-pretty-in-pink “Darling Dots” party. I whipped up a batch in no time. Easy, quick, tasty and make-ahead. So perfect for a dessert table.

 

how to make Strawberry Truffles

from  Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It, by Amy Atlas, Hyperion Books 2012, p. 153

2 2/3 cups white chocolate chips, melted

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, softened

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons strawberry preserves

1 cup pink sanding sugar or pink dusting sugar

1. Stir the softened butter and strawberry preserves into the melted chocolate until combined. Cover in plastic wrap and chill until firm enough to scoop, about 1 hour. (Note by me: I accidentally fell asleep and chilled mine for 4 hours, but I just let the mixture sit at room temp until easily scoopable.)

2. Scoop flat tablespoons of the truffle mixture and, using your hands, roll the truffles into balls. Place on the baking sheet and chill again until firm.

3. Put the sanding sugar on a dinner plate. Roll the chilled truffles in the sugar. Arrange the truffles in a bowl and place on the table.

Makes about 30.

And now… THE GIVEAWAY!!

    my “themes” are usually colors or something I’ve read about in books or seen in movies (the wedding in Nanny McPhee, for example). my daughter’s last party was Eloise at the Plaza and it was an amazing hit with our friends. I’m something of a Fracophile, so I think her next party (in December) will be Madeline. (in an old house in Paris that was covered in vines…)

    My mom and I just threw my sister a “Poppin’ Out” baby shower this autumn. We had cake pops, popsicles, kebabs, and goody bags filled with all kinds of goodies — Pop Rocks, Pop Tarts, Tootsie Pops, bottles of Pop (wax soda bottles) and bubble gum to pop (Bazooka gum). It was a fun and festive shower without being too pastel (she did not find out the baby’s gender).

We had coconut cups, we all had leis we had flowers in our hair, we wore shorts and beach wear (IN NEW ENGLAND IN DECEMBER) My uncles and cousins dressed up in hula skirts and coconut bras. I have the most fabulous picture of the 4 guys in their hula skirts and coconut bras. All the food was based around it and it was one of the most fun parties I’ve been too.

    Also…. How much does a ‘stick of butter’ weigh?

    What a coincidence that I added this book to my wish list on amazon today! As a grandmother to two little girls I am always on the lookout for anything pink, fussy, frilly and sumptous. We have done a Fancy Nancy party, Here Commes Summer-flip flops and flowers and an ice cream social. Best was It’s Raining Cats and Dogs where each guest had ice cream in a dog bowl(new), bone shaped sugar cookies, etc. The gifts were donations to our local animal shelter such as toys, treats, food, blankets and collars. Most kids have all they need and the encouragement to share and give back made hosting this one special!Looking for new ideas, recipes and opportunities. Thanks for sharing.

    I have no reason to throw it (yet! At least. Find out if baby is a boy or girl on the 6th but since I’m pretty sure it’s a boy I don’t think I’ll get the chance..) but I saw this ADORABLE mermaid themed birthday party for the beach. I grew up around the US but never less than 10 minutes from the ocean so its a slice of nostalgia from my own little girl childhood years.
