Dessert in stilettos

December 15, 2011

Bring out your gorgeous stem glasses, spoon your favorite dessert in them… and instantly you have a stunning end to your meal!

The dessert doesn’t have to be complex – a sorbet, gelato, mousse, poached fruit, cobbler, crisp, custard, parfait, or trifle… all are easy to assemble, and all will look stunning in stilettos!

Take these maple-poached pears with vanilla and lemon – they’ve never looked (or tasted!) better than in these elegant martini glasses.

Showing off simple desserts in gorgeous stemware can make throwing a dinner party a little less stressful while making you look fabulous.

Wow – gorgeous presentation, and maple sounds wonderful! I’d love a glass, high heels or not! (I am 5’9.5″, it gets tricky with heels!)
