Tabletop Thursday - and a Treat to Top it Off






I love Mary Engelbreit (ME) and it's amazing what one little charger can do to make a plate pop on the table. I try to fancify my desserts with a little sprig of mint from the yard and a couple of pretty cherries - ME taught me that.

This is my Hawaiian Cloudburst dessert. It's a Pineapple Mousse and it is yummy for the tummy on a hot day. And it never hurts to use fruit to display a tasty treat.

If you want to check out some more treats, look at Between Naps on the Porch or stop by Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor

Hi Kim,

I love pineapple and fluffy deserts especially after a heavy meal! I love the tablecloth, I'm a big fan of red. I've never heard of ME but she seems very creative. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Christina and Anne-Marie:

All it is is one pint of whipping cream, blended with two cups of sugar until it forms peaks, then I blended in one 8 ounce package of cream cheese, and two cans of pineapple, plus the fresh pineapple cored out. At the end I added some maraschino cherries and topped it with mint and a couple more cherries - it really is yummy.
