Wondering, for those of you who have a business, what kind of desserts (not cookies/brownies) you offer & what's your most popular? Thanks
cake balls, lemon-cheese bars, raspberry bars, low fat lemon diamonds, chocolate mousse piped into a chocolate cup, pecan diamonds, mini-carrot cake bites, toffee bars, truffles, oreo truffles, southern spiced pecans, scones and muffins.
my cheese cake by far, creme caramel, tiramisu.
tiramisu and cannollis I have an Italian Cafe so that is what we sell the most and of course cupcakes

Indydebi, do you make your own chocolate cups? If so, what do you use as your template/form? I've seen to use a 3 or 5 oz plastic cup cut up the side then remove when set. Do you think a dixie cup would work?
Mkolmar, what are your diamonds? Would you mind pming me your oreo truffle recipe? Sounds yummy. Still giving away goodies to get my name out before I become official.
I'm wanting to offer more than cakes & cookies, that's why I'm asking
I get both of these cups thru GFS
I buy my chocolate cups for the mousses from GFS also.
The diamonds are just the cut I use to cut the bars instead of a square. They are more stretched out for that diamond shape.
The oreo truffle recipe is actually on this site in the recipe section if you want to mark it into your saved recipe box file. All it is is 3 sleeves of oreos (I think this is the whole package) ground fine in a food processor, add 1 8oz. block of cream cheese that has been cubed. When no more white streaks show it's done. Just scoop out and refrigerate for a little bit to get them a little harder so they can be rolled out into truffle sized balls. Put back into the fridge to harden up a little bit more. Temper chocolate and then dip the truffles in. I'm not an oreo fan, but everyone who is absolutely loves them.
Those truffles sound yummy! I may try them w/ the mint oreos---they are my favorite. I'll be making some things for the VBS workers at our church next week & I'll see how they go. Do you work w/ a few at a time & leave the rest in the fridge?
I can usually get them all dipped, but with heat and humidity I break it up into 2.
