A Dessert Option

We recently served the pictured mini-bundt cakes at a women’s event.  They were ordered from a company in our area called “Nothing Bundt Cakes” which I have no problem recommending, as they were delicious.  However, you may not have that franchise nearby.  But what I want to bring to your attention is the little containers these cakes came in and in which we served them.  Having a prepackaged dessert like that turned out to be a blessing in more ways than one.  First, it eliminated the need for paper plates (though we did have napkins), saving money.  A bonus benefit was that it reduced the mess considerably, compared to serving slices of cake or cupcakes.  But we found an unexpected benefit:  The little containers made it easy for the ladies to take home any leftovers that they hadn’t finished!  So many ladies pay for the event, but possibly don’t want to eat sweets or can’t finish it.  This way, they can easily take home whatever is left to enjoy another day!  _29B4252

    Debby,

    These are super cute and I love that it gives women an option to take them home to eat later or share.

    I’m on a gluten-free diet and hate to be wasteful, but my hubby would love to eat it for me! :)

    I’m thinking more desserts need to be pre-packaged! I’ve seen cookies in paper CD envelopes that would be cute too.

    Great idea!!

    With joy,
    Cyndee

    Cyndee, the nice thing is that this particular company makes gluten-free options. You should look for them in your city! :-)

    Did you have an alternative for diabetics? This would really affect their sugar levels. Since I am now a diabetic, that would be my concern. I would certainly have loved to participate but wouldn’t be able to do so.

    Annette, we always try to have a sugar-free alternative available at big events. Sometimes we provide fruit or cheese. We have someone who makes lovely sugar-free desserts and we have had her make a few for events so that there is an option for diabetics as well as those with gluten sensitivities. The funny thing that we have found is that if we provide an appetizing dietetic option, either everyone wants to try it or the ones we think might want it choose the sugary dessert instead! Unless we have people sign up for the dessert option they want, and then put their name on the dessert, we can’t always make sure that the ones who truly need a sugar-free option get it! Sometimes we ask for that information at registration.
