 True Blood Vampire Party - Deliciously Darling Events

“I’m wearing a Walmart sweatsuit for ya’ll. If that’s not a demonstration of team spirit I don’t know what is.” – Pam {My favorite True Blood quote so far}.

Yesterday, I shared the recap of my True Blood Party and today it’s on to the Fangtastic True Blood Desserts!!! I’m honored & excited that Amy Atlas Events shared this party on her blog last week. I love that my party kicked off her official Countdown to Halloweekend.

So let’s start off by talking about these fondant toppers by Lynlee’s Petite Cakes!!! Incredible. I love it when I can explain my vision and someone just comes in and nails it (or in this case “stakes” it). Lynlee also created the beautiful Vampire Authority pendant that went on my center ruby red ribbon cake. She based it off of a picture of my Lilith necklace {Yes, I actually went to the HBO shop and bought a Lilith necklace and yes, it is awesome}.

Let’s talk about these cakes!!!! I joke that Kathi from My Sweet Things is a Buttercream Goddess but she really is. Look at how incredible these ruffle, petal & ribbon cakes look! I feel super lucky that she lives in Atlanta and creates such amazing pieces of edible art for me! Not only are the cakes gorgeous they are delicious.

I always craft for my parties. I actually love crafting. It de-stresses me and allows me to channel my creative energy. For this party, I created the blood wicked backdrop & the cake stand riser. I made the backdrop using two pieces of black foam board (from Hobby Lobby). Ducktape the two pieces of foam board together and begin dripping “blood” (aka red paint). I used Martha Stewart’s glittery red enamel from Home Depot. While the paint is still wet, give it light dusting of glitter. Scrapbook paper was used to create the paper fans and finished off with a 6″ True Blood Inspired printable from Frog Prince Paperie. The cake stand riser was actually an awesome craft and I will create a step by step tutorial very soon!

Back to the desserts! The table featured the Trio of cakes, red velvet cupcakes, peanut butter cupcakes, beautiful chocolate covered oreos {by Janet from Sweet Temptations},  Bloody Panna Cotta, Compton’s Cheesecake {with salted caramel & raspberry sauce}, Deader than Dirt cups, and homemade french macarons.

Here are a few more pictures of my bloody sweets below! Hop down to the bottom for the full vendor list.

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will share the recipe for “Deader than Dirt” cups.
