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:

      I posted this on YouTube the other day and thought I'd post it here. Personally, when I make them for me I only use Erythritol (a sugar substitute) but depending on the friend sugar or a blend of the two. Unlike other zucchini brownies, these don't use egg white, so they're not cake-y, but dense and fudgy. 
       
      Oh, and because I use whey protein, they're higher in protein and good for post-workout bite. 
       
       
      Ingredients
      300 -400 grams zucchini 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute 1/2 cup cocoa 1-2 tablespoons flavoring (brandy, rum, vanilla, etc) 2 shots of espresso (or instant, 60ml/2oz) 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup whey protein (or milk powder) 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but adds nice flavor)   1. Mince the zucchini in the food processor with the salt.
      2. Add the sugar or sugar substitute and process until the sugar is dissolved.
      3. Bloom your cocoa: In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa with HOT espresso and your flavorings (including cinnamon). Stir until mostly dissolved.
      4. To the food processor add the cocoa mixture and two egg yolks and blend together.
      5. Add the whey protein or milk powder to the mixture and blend together.
      6. Add the oatmeal and blend.
      7. Add the flour and pulse to incorporate (in other words, try not to over mix).
      8. Pour into a brownie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C/350F

      Has anyone successfully made candied chestnuts (marrons glace) at home which even remotely resemble the professional ones you get from Europe?
       
      I've tried making them using RTE Chinese chestnuts from Costco with varying success:
      One batch became leathery after being simmered in (what started out as) simple syrup which had its sucrose concentration gradually increased.
       
      I have also tried soaking the chestnuts in hot water prior to beginning the candying process.  The nuts, once again, developed a tough skin after a few days.  To reverse the tough skins I added more water to the syrup, broke the nuts up into pieces and simmered them gently for a few hours.
      While some pieces have a tough skin, many of them have taken on a candied texture.
       
      Should any further attempts to candy chestnuts be attempted using the method of slowly simmering them in simple syrup?
       
      Please share any feedback ypu may have.  Thanks!

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      In hopes of sleeping better, etc, etc, I have currently given up gluten, dairy and now sugar.  The gluten and dairy pose no problems...the sugar does.  I am not happy using mannitol or erythritol or any of those artificial sweeteners...they give me severe digestive problems.   But I can tolerate stevia very nicely.  The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be much sweetened with this ingredient.
       
      I do have a carob/coconut oil/peanut butter/stevia candy of sorts.  I don't really like it all that much, but it does work.  That's about it.
       
      Has anyone any recipes for desserts using stevia?  Thanks.

      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?
      .....Janet
