November 27, 2013. Behind The Scenes
Posted by Julie
This weekend my husband and I had friends over to entertain. Dinner, drinks, and a marathon of Duck Dynasty – I LOVE SI!! Our friends had the babysitter all lined up and we were ready for some fun without the kids.
My husband is the grill master, and I take care of the veggies and dessert. I recently purchased one of our Tapa Tapas sets and decided this was the right time to put it to the test. I have never used one of these before, but after talking to the “foodies” at work, the ideas were flowing freely – dessert was definitely the way to go.
Who doesn’t love walking by the pastry counter and admiring the beautiful treats – now was a good reason to try them and they were the perfect size for the spoons in the Slate Tapas Set. Serving mousse in a cereal bowl just doesn’t present nicely so I decided that this would go in the glass cups. IT WAS SOOO EASY, and the presentation was great!
What you will need:
1. Mousse: I used Dr. Oetker’s Mousse Supreme – for this recipe (which is on the box) you’ll need:
- 1 cup of milk
- Electric mixer
- Fruit for garnish
- Time: 15 minutes in the freezer
2. Custard fruit tarts, or any small treat from the pastry section in your grocery store
These tapas sets make a perfect gift for the holidays, as a host or hostess gift, or as a new addition to your entertaining spread.
