Brownie Parfaits

So I took the idea from my cupcake parfaits and decided to apply it to Alexandria's Creations semi-famous brownies and what a treat! Layers of rich fudge brownies, light chocolate mousse and Oreo crumbs topped with the perfect Halloween theme... mini candy pumpkins! I brought these beauties in to work since my co-workers felt neglected and everyone loved them, I quickly realized I didn't have enough! Cupcake and brownie parfaits are the perfect way to wow your guests with a twist on the traditional cupcake or brownie. Contact Alexandria's Creations to customize these for your next event!

Halloween Cupcakes

Imagine how much fun it would be to have the grand kids over and tell ghost stories and read Halloween themed books, sounds like a cute heart warming scene from a movie! The only thing they would love more would be cupcakes from Alexandria's Creations! I loved creating these cupcakes for the kiddies and from what I heard they loved them too!

Peanut Butter Perfection

I love a baking challenge! I will admit I do not really like peanut butter but when asked to create a cupcake incorporating peanut butter it really gave me a chance to be creative. Salivate over this... a chocolate cupcake with a milk chocolate and peanut butter truffle baked inside and topped with a light peanut butter icing! I would say I did well {pats myself on the back}!!!

How cute

Topped with a mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

Light creamy peanut butter frosting

Boxed up and ready to go

Chocolate Covered Alcohol Infused Strawberries

Now these strawberries might be all cute and innocent looking but they are infused with Riesling, a sweet white wine! These are perfect for a romantic evening or a fun time with the girls, in any setting these will steal the show! Contact Alexandria's Creations for all of your infused fruit needs!

Don't let these little babies fool you, they are only for adults

These special strawberries needed a little bling!

Brown Sugar and Garlic Braised Drumsticks

So I had no idea how much brown sugar compliments garlic and I am now a huge fan of the combination. I decided to braise the chicken legs then they were topped with a brown sugar and garlic glaze... yummy!!!

Baby Shower Mini Cupcakes

I don't know about you but one of my favorite, maybe my absolute favorite, things at a baby shower is the cake! There is something magical about baby shower cake and wedding cake that is not present in regular cakes! What a way to shower baby Amillah than with personalized mini cupcakes, strawberry and yellow cake flavors with whipped butter cream icing and white chocolate monogram letters! Enjoy!

Yellow cupcakes colored purple to match the pink and purple theme

So cute

Personalized with an 'A' for baby Amillah

90's Birthday Bash

What a wonderful theme for a party!!! In the 90's I was pretty young so I thought why not incorporate all the best things that I remember from the 90's and what a hit! This party was for a dear friend's 26th birthday and she really gave me liberty to make all catering decisions, she only had 2 firm requirements: JJ's chicken, who wouldn't want that, and Super Donuts, a 90's staple food for us! Besides the food I thought it would be fun to have glow stick bracelets, big costume jewelry plastic rings, knocker ball toys, bubble wands in the shape of microphones and assorted candy!!! This event was a lot of fun and I am glad Alexandria's Creations could be a part of this special occasion; memories were truly created that evening!

Think of Alexandria's for all of your catering needs, we will present a food display that is both visually enticing and palatable and all of your guests will appreciate all the thought that you put into having them at your event!
