Easter Brunch

I have obviously survived another holiday.  We are going to change up the schedule for mothers day so that maybe I won't have to work 37 hours in 3 days to pull it off.  We are only able to cross utilize some of our desserts still we try to keep the menus sorta similar to cut prep times. 

Main Dining Room Desserts
Creme Brulee
Black & White Cake
Carrot Cake
Coconut Mousse
Strawberry Panna Cotta (which I made in a dome mold and had to listen to "boob" jokes all day long)

Unfortunately things happened out of my control and we were a little slow getting the plates done for the dining room, in the chaos I forgot to take pictures.  Bad Becca!

Luckily this was my domain and I finished prepping it nearly an hour early.   Plenty of time to fiddle, arrange and take pictures
Carrot cake and chocolate cake petit fours and orange cheesecake

Lemon cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, coconut cream tarts

Strawberry Panna Cotta with fresh stawberries and orange rosemary cookies

Hand Decorated Cookies

The entire buffet

I think the hand decorated cookies are a thing of the past unfortunately.  I was told that it's a waste of time, but somehow making cupcakes isn't.  I am totally anti-cupcake.  They are little dried out pieces of cake, no filling and always too much frosting.  BLECH!!!!  Plus it takes me longer to make 80 little bitty cupcakes than it does to make rounds that would serve the same amount of people and TASTE BETTER.  phew, think I'm done now.

Oh BTW, I got the last laugh with the pink "boobs"  by 5 o'clock I was so sick of hearing about it the I put 2 of them on a plate, stuck a single blueberry on top of each and hand delivered it to the F&B director.  He was speechless for nearly a minute.  BWHAAAAAHAHAHAHA
