Dessert Buffet

 My friend had a fundraiser for charity, raising money for Crohn's disease, and I offered to make some desserts for it.

The event was held at the recently refurbished Courtyard Marriot in Mission Valley, San Diego. 

I included a mixture of desserts for all tastes. 

Cherry trifles, a cherry and liqueur soaked vanilla sponge with morello cherries and whipped cream, topped with slivered almonds,

 Mocha mudcakes with a whipped kahlua ganache.

'Smores'- handmade graham crackers, chocolate ganache and a torched meringue.

Lemon meringue tarts.

Peach pies with whipped cream
 These dessert bars are becoming popular and its always fun for me to 'think outside the cakebox' and make some different treats for people.  I hope people order them in the future, I had a lot of fun making them!
