OH YUMMY! Let’s talk dessert! You know, that sweet treat at the end of a meal or the thing you serve at a gathering that EVERYONE loves. Let me be perfectly honest… I don’t like to make desserts! Too precise… too much chemistry! But I sure do love love love to buy a special dessert and serve it to my family, friends and guest! The fancier and the prettier, the better! Like this fabulous, decedent chocolate pie above! Can you believe I bought it at Walmart? Here are 5 tips for serving a store bought dessert and making it look over-the-top fabulous!
1. BUY THE BEST TASTING DESSERT YOU CAN FIND
This is a must! Unless your store-bought dessert tastes scrumptious why bother? The dessert does not have to be expensive, it has to be amazing!
Today, I’m featuring one of the best store-bought pies on the market, EDWARDS® CHOCOLATE CREAM PIE! Yes, it is not only delicious and rich and chocolatey and silky, but I just took it out of my freezer and thawed it out before serving it! My family loved it! And look how beautiful it looks!!! All swirled and peaked and dotted with chocolate chips!!!
I now keep a little stash of Edwards Whole Pies in the freezer (they come in some wonderful flavors) for those times I need a beautiful and luscious dessert! These pies are seriously delicious and very reasonably priced!!!!
No baking, no mess… just compliments!
2. TAKE THE DESSERT OUT OF ANY WRAPPINGS OR PANS
When you are serving a store-bought dessert make sure to take it out of all store packaging. You want to show off the dessert not the pan it comes in!!!!
Here’s how the pie looks in all it’s sturdy packaging…
Very nice for us to keep in our freezers, but we want to see all the scrumptiousness inside!
And here’s how the Chocolate Cream Pie looks without the packaging and no aluminum plate. The chocolate cookie crust holds the pie together so well!
Make sure you take off all store wrappings if possible!
3. PUT YOUR STORE-BOUGHT DESSERT IN OR ON SOMETHING PRETTY
Make your dessert the star it deserves to be by slipping it into or on a pretty bowl, plate, glass or cake stand. My Edwards Whole Pie literally got elevated to new heights by a pretty ribbed cake plate! It just makes dessert look as special as it tastes!
A beautiful dessert can stand alone! However, a little embellishing will give your dessert a gourmet look! Add some seasonal berries around your store-bought dessert like I did for a colorful garnish! What tastes better than chocolate and raspberries. So chic!
Add mint, shaved chocolate curls, a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of ice cream, a snowfall of confectioner’s sugar or even put your store-bought dessert in a puddle of some decedent sauce! All fabulous flavor enhancers and all so so heavenly!
5. SERVE WITH PRIDE!
Serve your gorgeous store-bought dessert with a smile and the confidence that you are giving your family and friends something scrumptious and memorable… because you really are!
