LUCKY LEPRECHAUN DESSERT BAR
One of our favorite challenges when coming up with a party concept is taking a theme that is traditionally not the most aesthetically pleasing and turning it into something beautifully fitting for today's current trend standards. St Patrick's Day is a GREAT example. Green beer, florecent shamrocks, plastic shot glass necklaces....no thanks. We were inspired by the fun and eye-catching colors of Lucky Charms Cereal to create this St. Patty's Day dessert bar that will have your party guests swooning, whether they be children or millennials!
For the centerpiece of the dessert bar, we chose a standard vanilla layer cake frosted with cereal milk frosting (recipe here), then carefully hand decorated with Lucky Charms Marshmallows and variations of gold sprinkles.
Our Lucky Charms bark is so adorable and VERY easy to make. All you need is melting chocolate, Lucky Charms Marshmallows, and sprinkles!
1) Start by melting a bag of white candy melts according to directions. Melt a second bag and separate into bowls, adding food coloring to your liking for colored swirls.
2) Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread melted white chocolate out evenly onto paper. Drizzle colored chocolate over the top and swirl with a knife to create a marble effect.
3) Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle with marshmallows and sprinkles. We found fun Wilton gold sprinkles that really put our bark over the top.
4) Once the chocolate has hardened, break into pieces. YUM!
Seriously, could this be any cuter?!
Next, we made baked donuts with matcha glaze (recipe here) and topped them with gold sprinkles, edible glitter, and edible gold foil for donuts you would clearly find at the end of a rainbow.
We absolutely adore the naked cake trend, so we decided to make mini naked cakes (recipe here) sized perfectly for hungry little leprechauns. We, of course, garnished these babies with tons of sprinkles and Lucky Charms marshmallows!
What else could our party guests sip on for St. Patty's Day besides a shamrock shake! (recipe here)
For an avant-garde look to classic vanilla cupcakes (recipe here), we decorated with crushed Lucky Charms Marshmallows, delicate sprinkles, and edible gold foil.
We hope you are inspired by our rainbow-hued sugar feast! Please comment below any questions you may have or St. Patty's Day party stories of your own. We would love to hear!
