Last weekend, my daughter's school held our annual auction night! And the theme...Hollywood! Lights! Camera! Auction!
I was in charge of the dessert tables and worked with more than 15 moms from the school to create an amazing display of treats! We are lucky to have so many talented bakers at our school. Thank you also to Sincere Touch Photography for some amazing photos! And, special thank you to Dolce Vita Desserts in Lemont for providing the beautiful and delicious red velvet cupcakes! They were the star of the night!
I loved the marque...the centerpiece of the backdrop. A dad from the school cut the wood for me and I painted the signed. Once the lights were added, the sign really came to life!
This year our moms worked hard to create treats within the Hollywood theme. Several moms worked together, like the chocolate covered reels. A cake decorator from the school made the fondant topppers for the mom that covered the oreos!
There were dozens of these tartlettes and they disappeared quickly!! Beautiful and delicious!!
We were lucky enough to have real Emmy statues at the event!!

I provided cookies for the event! I made popcorn baskets, auction tickets...
...red dresses, drama masks, movie reels, film strips, and clapperboards!! Designing the cookies was so much fun!
One mom took her cake to the red carpet level with these reels and bag of popcorn. Amy is an attorney by day and baker by night! This dessert got a lot of attention!
Not every treat had to have the Hollywood twist...but they certainly were all super extravagent. Those chocolate pretzels had a layer of homemade caramel hiding underneath and were accented with mini chips, toffee pieces, and chocolate jimmies! Delicious!
I would be remiss if I didn't highlight the most amazing truffles ever made...
We have a truffle master at our school! She made 250 truffles in six different flavors...and there weren't any leftovers!! Amazing!
Trays and trays of truffles!
She also made the fondant toppers on the chocolate covered oreos and the ticket and clapperboards for these delicious pumpkin cupcakes made by another mom.
Our guest enjoyed their special treats! Thank you so much to all the bakers that helped make this event a huge success!
