Tempting Tables dessert tables
Dessert tables. Candy buffets. Cake bars. Sweetie station. Tempting Tables. One thing they do all have in common if not their names, is that they are a veritable feast for the eyes as well as the tummies.
Well usually a client comes to us with a cake on their shopping list. But often they’ll add some hand-iced cookies for the guests to take home, some cupcakes for the children at their celebration and the resulting styled display is a capsule cake bar. With a view to inspiring our clients further and with dessert tables becoming more popular, adding Tempting Tables to our offering was a natural progression. Our Tempting Tables are a collection of Tempting Cake‘s signature cakes, cupcakes and hand-iced cookies, along with the finest hand-made chocolates, delicious dessert canapés, fresh fruit and sweeties all beautifully styled. They make the perfect choice for weddings but would be equally at home at a birthday, corporate event, christening or barbecue as they allow guests to mingle as well as providing a talking point for your occasion. The options are limited only by your imagination and our creativity!
The simplest thing to do is to let the delicious images below (all courtesy of the wonderful Liesl Cheney) do the talking.
For this Tempting Table the focus was on texture so that the finished creations still came to life, despite all being the same colour. A Tempting Table along these lines would provide a contemporary yet elegant addition to a wedding or a Christmas party.
Coconut shavings, glitter in the vanilla pannacotta and royal icing piped detail on the cake provide notes of interest for this minimalist look.
The menu items were presented on crystal cut glassware against a pristine backdrop. Our own props were given a huge boost after Old Fashioned Knees Up opened up their vast collection for us to raid. Creative Director Angie is a self-confessed magpie of all things pretty and her styling nous was invaluable to ensure our mood boards were brought to life with panache.
Because black and white never goes out of fashion. The mood board for this Tempting Table focused on strong lines and graphic patterns to maximise the contrast between black and white.
With a black tie cake, even the strawberries dressed for the occasion.
Divinely decadent Chilli Bees dessert canapés line up for their moment in front of the camera.
This Tempting Table is a chocoholic’s dream, with these delectable artisan Perfectly Tempered chocolates.
Let’s just say there were no shortage of hungry helpers when it came to the post shoot clear-up! This project was ably supported by the very talented Team Tempting Tables so a huge thank you to Liesl, Angie, Kirsty, Ellie, Olivia, Greg and Danny for your efforts and I hope you’re as thrilled as I am with the outcome.
