Happy Friday, Everyone! I’m in the midst of planning a sweet treat-themed photo shoot, and I thought I’d take a look back of some of my favorite dessert images from Mirror80’s Retro Foodie series. There’s nothing I love more than styling my culinary concoctions with retro flair, and today’s featured sweets are less about cooking than adding some finishing touches to store-bought goodies. In other words, easy! Read on for more delicious photos…
Above we see a plate of Dunkin’ Donuts in an image from my Pastel Party, which featured plenty of sprinkles. In fact, many of today’s photos involve sprinkles of some sort! Don’t forget to follow the links in this post, which will guide you to the original shoots filled with lots more pics and party ideas. Below, brownie bites are dressed up with whipped cream, fresh mint and caramel sauce for Mirror80’s Halt and Catch Fire Viewing Party:
Next we see an image from one of the very first Retro Foodie photo shoots ever: a Valentine’s Day Dessert Buffet. I simply added whipped cream, sprinkles and sour cherry candies to bakery-bought chocolate cupcakes for a retro-fabulous presentation of sweets…
Getting ready to watch the Golden Globes this weekend? Yes, awards show season is here! One of my favorite easy-to-prepare glitzy desserts involves topping molten chocolate mini-cakes with whipped cream and chocolate vermicelli. This dessert was a highlight from last year’s Awards Show Party:
While technically the drink below is a Halloween milkshake, you can truly enjoy it year-round. And yes, that’s a mini candy bar garnish!
I’ll end with a tasty treat from my Retro Halloween Buffet: ice cream sandwiches featuring soft chocolate chunk cookies and Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. Simply buy your favorite bakery cookies and create little sandwiches with the help of freshly scooped ice cream. I recommend serving these immediately rather than re-freezing them. The cookies are much softer that way!
Sweet dreams to you and yours on this cold winter day!
