Desserts for upcoming bachelorette party!


Recommended Posts

Hi all: I've been asked to provide some desserts for a bachelorette party for 20 coming up and I have been having problems coming up with some good ideas. I was thinking of doing a 'naughty & nice' kind of theme with lots of suggestive desserts (there are lots of penis-shaped cake molds out there but I am not sure if i want to invest in them as their shape is quite 'specific' :raz: and i couldn't see myself pulling out those molds for anything else except maybe valentine's day (depending on the clientele)...

Does anyone have any good ideas they'd like to share? I'm currently thinking of doing iced cookies (like naughty gingerbread men), something with whipped cream (maybe ice cream sundaes)...

Iced cookies? Make sure there's plenty of Royal Icing. Hee. Yes, I went there. :laugh: If those sundaes aren't going to be a hassle to serve mid-party, perhaps you'd like to embellish them with a single banana each. In my country there's a senorita variety that grows only to a manageable 4-5 inches.

Probably wasn't what you are looking for, but you gotta have Jell-O shots!!

Also, how about making penis shaped meringues? :biggrin: You could pipe them into shape and let them dry. Or maybe do the same thing with ganache and then dip them in chocolate. :rolleyes:

I'm sure I'll be back with other ideas...

Chocolate eclairs are classic, delicious, and have the shape you are looking for, and then there is the filling... Because they are classic, guests who choose not to notice the salient features can ignore them easily, and those who are looking for a salacious giggle can comment on them. Plus, they have chocolate. You are talking about a party for women. Chocolate is mandatory.

Thanks for the ideas. I never thought about éclairs or shaped meringues. and that cake site is hilarious although I'm not sure if I would ever have the nerve to make some of their cakes. and I think I'll definitely be doing something with ice cream... perhaps mini bananas with ice cream "balls" sundae. hmm...

keep 'em coming!

Have you looked at the Cookie Sutra? I have a picture up on my site, plus an extra credit one i photoshopped, but is totally do-able.

Another recommendation is the cookbook Naughty Cakes. I have links to pictures from the cookbook up also. They're funny- some cheesier than others.

I'm not even going to post my pictures of pussy cakes I made awhile ago. The marzipan is a bit blush inducing :laugh: Besides, not sure if your Bachelorette party swings that way :wink:

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?

      Hi all!! 
      I work at an amazing little New Zealand Style ice cream shop in the beautiful Denver Colorado. I was hoping to get a little help on the subject of adding fruit into ice cream after extracting it and ensuring that, when the ice cream is frozen, the fruity bits don't turn into rock hard shards. I am planning on doing a cherry chocolate ice cream and I was going to soak some dried cherries that we're no longer using for something else. I was planning on using some brandy and a ton of sugar, but I was really hoping someone had a tried and true method they could send my way so that I KNOW that the fruit will be luscious as it's frozen. If you have a certain sugar ratio. I know there is the brix test, but to be honest it's been many years since pastry school and I am very rusty. Would love to hear from some of my fellow sugar-heads. 
      Thank you!

      Hi guys! I got excited to post something as this is my first one.
      So, the top 3 desserts I like to eat when I was still in Philippines were Halu-halo (literally means mix-mix in english), brazo de mercedes and chocolate crinkles.

      1. HALU-HALO is one of the popular food during summer. This is basically:
      shaved ice with evaporated milk,
      sugar,
      and the following:
      - nata de coco (coconut cream based on a google search, these are cube-like jellies),
      - sweetened red beans,
      - sweetened bananas,
      - cooked sago or tapioca,
      - ube or purple yam,
      - leche flan (this is also one of the best desserts to eat),
      - macapuno (made of coconut),
      - sweetend jackfruit,
      - sweetened kamote (this is similar to sweet potato but caramelized),
      - sweetened kaong (sugar palm fruit)
      - and topped with a scoop of ice cream.
      These fruits are usually bought in jars (found mostly in Asian grocery stores). You basically put the fruits at the bottom, add sugar (if you want because almost all the fruits are sweetened so it's already sweet), then you fill the cup/bowl with shaved ice and add milk. And most importantly, mix it well before you eat because you don't want to eat shaved ice with milk only and then eat the really sweet fruits last.

      2. BRAZO DE MERCEDES
      Yah, I think the name is Spanish? I tried making this but I just failed. It's kinda hard to do and takes a lot of patience but it's really worth it. This is my favourite cake! In Philippines, most bakeries sell this but my favourite is from Goldiluck's which is located in shopping malls.

      3. CHOCOLATE CRINKLES
      These are my favourite chocolate cookies! I think this one isn't really from Philippines but they are really popular. I was kinda shocked when I came here in Canada, because they don't sell these cookies in the bakeries I've been to so I tried baking these on my own. Since my post is getting long, I'll put the recipe as a link at the bottom.

      I hope you enjoyed my post! Happy eating and baking everyone!

      Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  
      If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.
      The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).
      Thanks in advance!
