I wanted to make a creative centerpiece, so when one of my friends showed me this website, I knew that I wanted to somehow incorporate these adorable little rosettes. Once I got the hang of things, they weren't too hard to make. I ended up putting them with some "diamonds" in a vase labeled "S" for my sister's future name, "Schoenfeld." I think it turned out pretty cute.
I made three desserts for the party: raspberry lemonade bars, Oreo truffles, and cheesecake pops.
I got the idea for cheesecake pops from Bakerella, one of my favorite bloggers. I used this basic recipe but made the pops with a homemade butterscotch cheesecake at my sister's request. Cheesecake pops are so delicious and not too hard to make because you can use a store bought cheesecake if you prefer. I think they turned out well for my first try at pops! I decorated them with cute little "diamond" rings.
I have made Oreo truffles several times now, and they are always a hit. I get requests for them fairly often. The hardest part is dipping them in the chocolate, but that gets easier with practice.
