I recently did a bridal shower for my niece, and the theme was Kate Spade Bridal Shower. While other people were responsible for the decoration and meals, I was responsible for the dessert bar. And what a dessert bar it was! Here are the recipes I used to create this fantastic Kate Spade Bridal Shower Dessert Bar. I found that finger foods that didn't need forks worked great because guests were able to come by and pick an item or two up to eat while walking by. We used a lot of the cupcake liners to allow people to take one without touching too many of the dessert items.

First, I created the menu and shared it with the other bridesmaids to make sure they like the collection of desserts.
Peach and Apple Roses: I found this recipe online, and there were many variations of them.
Apple and Cherry Pie Flowers: I made these desserts with pie crust and apple and cherry pie filling. Then, I added confectioner sugar to the top. This recipe was great for the guests who didn't want to overeat sweet food. Here's the recipe I posted recently.
Mini Donut Rings: These were so easy to make, and I enjoyed it. To keep the Mini Donut up, we added mini cupcake liners. This recipe was wonderful and I was so happy. We ended up not using the party paper and went back to the pink cardstock because they glued better to the flat toothpicks.
Mini Cannolis: The bride loved Mini Cannolis, so we ordered them from a nearby store, Wegmans.
Gluten Free / Dairy Free cake: This cake was small and was for the people who can't have gluten. There indeed was something for everyone at this dessert bar.
Homemade dairy free sugar cookies with the letter of the bride on it: We tried to make the beautiful Kate Spade cookies, but alas, we failed so instead we just did black and white cookies and wrote the letter D for the bride on them. They worked out great, and everyone enjoyed them. I found being dairy intolerant the dessert bar is usually a place I can't go. Sigh. So, to give to the people who have an issue with dairy like me a sweet treat, I made these cookies.
And a cake, of course. This cake was designed by the Matron of Honor. It was gorgeous!
And, don't forget the little food signs. Indicate if they are gluten free or dairy free on them as well. One of the bridesmaids found these place card holders and they worked wonderfully.
To make the picture frame, I used an old frame and my Cricut machine and added it to foam core board. Then, added the words to the foam core board. I used the 3M chalk tape (Amazon affiliate link) I had and covered the edges of the foam core board to give it a border. Then, I taped the 3M chalk tape around the frame to cover up all the gold. It worked out nicely and enhanced the black edge. Since the bride loves rose gold, I bought a rose gold runner and hung it around the frame and then at the end of the party, I gave it to her as a gift. She loved it.
If you are wondering about the runner, I bought an extra long tablecloth with black strips (Amazon affiliate link) and cut them in strips of 7 lines and was able to make five runners for the buffet, mimosa bar, and food tables. They were extra long tables so we needed to overlap the runners.
To cover the front of the bar, we used a long, plastic black tablecloth from the dollar store.
Well, there you have it. I hope your Kate Spade Bridal Shower Dessert Bar is gorgeous. Please share your tips below. I would love to hear from you.
