Desserts to Make for Your Daughter's Bridal Shower
Honor your daughter and the future bride-to-be with delicious pint-sized treats and sweets.
Wedding bells are ringing! If the bells are sounding off for your daughter, it means you’ll eventually be tasked with hosting the impending bridal shower. Along with planning games and organizing the gift-opening portion of the celebration, your biggest responsibility as mother-of-the-bride will be creating a menu guests will remember. Sure, there will be time to gossip, share sage marriage advice, and gift the bride-to-be with the necessary tools to start her new life (think: provocative lingerie and essential kitchenware). But, to be frank, the main reason most guests attend is for the food and sweet treats. And you won’t want to let them or the bride down. Since bridal showers typically include lighter fare and simple dishes, the same culinary rules should be applied to dessert. Whether you’re organizing a Sunday brunch, luncheon, or evening bridal shower, you can’t go wrong with individually-portioned desserts. Why waste time baking a big cake, when petite tarts, miniature cakes, and dainty parfaits are far more sensible for guests to nosh on while mingling and playing games? These 18 bite-sized treats are easy yet impressive enough to wow the bride and her guests. Trust us, she’ll never know you didn’t spend all day in the kitchen.
