Last night was the Duel of the Design and the debut of a new idea in dessert buffets. The edible garden. Paths of Thomasina's Cashew Brittle meandered through fresh moss and wheat grass that held vanilla cupcakes turned into mushrooms and flowers. raspberry linzer cookie flowers lined the paths and nestled in grass and moss while apricot butterflies flitted overhead.
My favorite part was the Happy Garden Gnome, made of cake, fondant, poured sugar and chocolate. He stood upon a slab of shale made of fondant and held his poured sugar lantern to light the way.
