Recently we celebrated my aunt and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary! My aunt and uncle are avid golfers, so my cousins threw a surprise golf outing (and dinner) as their anniversary party! While the day was a little windy, it didn’t stop the golfers from having a good time (no, I did not golf). Afterwards, everyone sat down for dinner and desserts. It was wonderful to see so many friends and family, and to celebrate a joyous occasion!
I volunteered to bring desserts. Would you like to see what I made?
Chocolate cupcakes, decorated with vanilla bean buttercream frosting. I tinted the frosting green and used a grass tip for piping. I also added a sugar pearl as a golf ball. Can you see the little golf ball on each cupcake?!
These are white chocolate golf balls. In one basket, the golf balls were filled with homemade caramel. In the other basket, the golf balls had a chocolate truffle filling.
I also made vanilla bean sugar cookies, that I decorated with their monogram. The cookies are iced with gold royal icing, then when the icing was dry, I dry dusted them with gold luster dust (it gave the cookies a nice little sparkle!). Then using white royal icing, I piped on the monogram and the border.
Not shown: I also made a dessert tray with brownies, brown butter chocolate chip cookies, and snickerdoodles.
