Today’s blog could be about how lovely tree lights look when reflected against wood flooring, or how this light wood choice works with every color on a holiday tree. But instead we’re going to look at how you can make your holiday desserts look festive without a lot of effort or skill.
Take a look at the cake in the photo. It’s a simple white-frosted cake – either homemade or from the store. But adding a few decorations such as the two tiny stand-up trees, the silver star twisted wrap and a few cookies makes a cake into a holiday event.
By adding a sprig of holly, these plain white cookies suddenly look ready for holiday munching. A bit of pine would work too. Even easier, add some holiday chocolates or other candies to the plate for an edible decoration.
Here’s a good example of using plate decorations to turn a simple treat into a holiday event. By adding fresh raspberries and mint around this chocolate cake, it becomes suitably dressed for the holidays. Another bonus on this choice is that raspberries and mint taste great with chocolate, so you have decorated the cake and added flavor too.
Notice that this plate has a gold rim. Even though this cake plate would work year round, the gold adds to the total look of the cake, making it even more inviting.You can use special dishes like this one or find some holiday dishes to add personality. Finish up with some candles and flowers and you’re ready to entertain.
