I had been one party that the hotel's chefs made the desserts very very small. I guess since the desserts were served throughout the whole party time (love it!), they were considered as gourmet hors d'oeuvres as well, thus the tiny portion couldn't stuff us up too soon. Tiramisu, mousse or cheesecake was able to fit into a doll's cup; they all were so adorable that I almost couldn't bear to eat them.... almost!
Tomorrow I am hosting a gathering in my small apartment, so now am trying this teeny-weeny shortcake. Each cake is hold up by a long stick before putting into a bamboo tube. I can actually put quite many sticks into one tube, this way also solves the space problem. And to save time, just get store-bought mini cookies and use them as the shortcake (mine is mini Chips Ahoy! :) :)
- mini cookies, like Chips Ahoy!
- Whipped cream
- fresh herb for garnish
- long sticks and a bamboo tube for presentation
