Mr. Event: The Sweet Tooth!
Dear Atlas Event Rental Blog Readers,
I have a bit of a confession to make. In all reality, I’m not sure if I’ve told you all this before, but today is the day I admit that I have a problem.
You see, I am one of the people born with a horrible, horrible burden: THE SWEET TOOTH!
Everyone has their vices. Some people pick their nose in public. Some people don’t put the toilet seat down.
I lay waste to cakes, candies and desserts wherever I go. And I mean I DESTROY desserts.
I would steal candy from a baby and I wouldn’t even know it until I woke up down a dark alleyway with no memory of what happened and chocolate smeared all over my face and a lollipop stuck in my hair.
So you can imagine my absolute delight at an event I attended recently.
Thierry’s Catering had a dessert bar but unlike anything I have ever seen! You see, the deal here was that there were all these candies and toppings laid out for you to choose. You could choose anything from M&Ms to Bacon (stay with me here).
So you choose what you want and give it to a chef. The chef then takes your toppings and puts them on a block of dry ice.
The next step is where it gets nuts (especially if you chose nuts as one of your toppings)!
The chef gets a ladle full of melted chocolate, dark or milk depending on taste, and pours it all over your ingredients! The dry ice immediately hardens the chocolate and you’re left with a “chocolate bar” that contains all of your ingredients.
It’s like being inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and you’re Willy Wonka!
It’s enough to make a grown man with a serious sweet tooth problem cry. And cry I did, but with a mouth full of chocolate, pretzels, caramel and bacon!
