This is the menu from last year's End-of-Year party that I co-catered for the department. It was a complete 11-course dinner, all in miniature. Dessert, which is cut-off from the menu, included two entries: lemon-lavendar teacakes and raspberry mocha chocolate cakes (again, all in miniature). Preceded by my tuxedoed strawberries and followed up by spicy chocolate truffles.
In the foreground: lemon-lavender teacakes, with hand-coated sugared lilacs and almond slivers. At the sides: tuxedoed strawberries. In the background: raspberry mocha chocolate cake, and spicy dark chocolate truffles.
