There are only two days left until we celebrate Thanksgiving, and I don't know about you, but I'm frankly trying to finish one thousand things in just 48 hours!
When it comes to entertain at home, I try to keep things simple...but beautiful!. You may think that I create amazing confections at home, but that is not the case!...for my home entertaining, I always produce what I call "smart designs", which are beautiful and delicious, but quick and easy!
One of the techniques that I love for this time of the year is to add some quick bling to my holiday desserts!...a quick and easy way to add sparkle and "wow" to your desserts, is to just mix and sprinkle some colored crystal sugars. They are readily available in most supermarkets and craft stores!
What my daughter and I did on the image below, was to cover some chocolate pumpkins in crystal sugar by just dipping them in bowls filled with the crystals!. There are so many beautiful designs that you can also achieve by layering different colors on a simply iced cake!...Hope you enjoy the holidays as much as I'm planning to do!
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!
