A Dessert Garden Party (continued)

We continue our "tour" of summer 2006's garden dessert party. The previous post (which may be viewed below the current post) shared pictures of the cookie, cheesecake, and confections "stations" scattered throughout the garden.

As well as those sweet delicacies mentioned above, we also prepared a selection of hand-made tartlettes, including Apricot and Blueberry Streusel Tartlettes; Toasted Coconut Cream, Bittersweet Coconut Rum Ganache, Chocolate Cookie Crust; and French Macadamia Nut Praline & Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse Tartlettes.

The last station contained various custards and mousses in individual cups for easy serving and eye-catching presentation. Items at this station included: White Chocolate & Sesame Mouse with Green Mango Coulis and Sesame Nougatine; Milk Chocolate & Garam Masala Mousse; and a delicious Vanilla Bean and Lavender Creme Brulee (not pictured).

Lastly, the fruit and cheese display, with a delicious honey-yogurt dipping sauce, was the edible centerpiece for the event. Fruit skewers and "trees," as well as a vast selection of cubed and sliced cheeses and toasted flatbread were elegantly presented in a colorful and flavorful display.

The complete menu prepared for the event may be viewed at the following address:
