Tips for Elevating Everyday Desserts

  1. Reserve special serve ware for desserts – plates, cups, cake stands… make it special – have certain dishes just for desserts. She calls them “happy plates” and her collection of eclectic plates I like to serve dessert on.
  2. Homemade whipped cream – instead of ice cream or store-bought whipped cream, serve your desserts with fresh whipped cream. It’s easy to make, and it’s rich and flavorful. You want to always use a high-fat cream for the best results.
  3. Think outside of the box – take a box brownie to the next level with this brownie berry torte. This is an easy way to elevate boxed brownies, by adding a cream filling made with pudding. Get the recipe
