Mini food bites, especially in the desserts department have been hugely popular in recent years. This trend has been an events industry favourite, as these mini desert ‘tapas’ are often more practical to serve and eat, add a playful variety to the menu and allow guests to sample a little bit of everything without filling up too much. This year we are seeing the trendy miniature deserts from the past evolving with new exciting variations popping up.
Firstly we have the Pie Pop. A new take on the cake pop, these miniature sweet pies on sticks really do look beautiful. Think traditional fillings packed with flavour like apple and raspberry or chocolate pecan.
The cupcake is still making waves in the industry but this year, miniature gourmet donuts are set to be a substantial contender. Think original flavours such as chai latte, star anise and chocolate or a light lavender donut filled with lemon curd. Yum.
Finally, we have the cake push pop. We were lucky enough to have a sample of these delivered to our office recently and they really are different and sure to touch your inner child. Originating from the US, these are like a marriage between a cupcake and old school push pop and can make for a very unique looking dessert, themed to any occasion.
