Sweet Designs is gorgeous, as you can tell by just looking at the cover, and it’s packed with sugar and crafts that will help you create beautiful dessert tables.  The book is both a cookbook and a craft book, with 374 pages chalked full of more than 175 projects and full of information to get you started on your own table designs with lots of beautiful pictures throughout.

I love that Amy shows you how to Bake it, Craft and Style it!

Amy lays it all out for you, from the sweet basics, like how to melt chocolate, to a walk down the candy aisle, with candy couture and candy math, to how to find inspiration and use fabric to accessorize a cake pedestal and she ends it all with a “Find it” section,  sourcing all the items she used in the book. How cool is THAT?!

Myself and a few of my fellow bloggers are highlighting some of Amy’s recipes from her new book today!

It’s hard to know what to make because every single one of the recipes look so darn good.  But, I choose the Honey Panna Cotta, a sweet, smooth, creamy little confection.

This cool and refreshing dessert, is basically cooked cream with a bit of yogurt and capped with a luminous band of honey-flavored gelatin.  It  great “make ahead” dessert for a party table, and with it’s simple, not too sweet flavor, it would be the perfect ending to a heavy meal.

I  garnished the panna cotta with spun sugar, which was pretty quick and easy too ( I watched this video on how to spin sugar)……..just a little messy.  But you could certainly garish with a piece of fruit or almond slice.

Smooth, creamy and oh so decadent!

  38. I’d say my dream party would be an amazing, fun, glamorous New Years Eve party. I haven’t done much of anything for New Years the last two years, and I’ve always wanted to go to a party like this but could never find one with the right decor and atmosphere. So what better way than creating it myself!
