Fine Dining in….a Garage?


Our elegant night of fine dining up at a beautiful cabin near Sundance was altered a bit when Mother Nature decided to drop a ferocious rainstorm above our heads. Instead of eating out on the lawn, we moved the tables into the cleared out garage. We set and decorated the tables, and worked hard to make the surroundings as beautiful as possible.

Our multi-layer spice cake with accompanying salted caramel ice cream was a hit! Love the height the gingersnap cookie brings, and the chocolate cigarette ties the whole dessert together.

We also sent home a double chocolate charlotte for each of the guests. We garnished it with whipped cream, a chocolate cigarette and gold glitter.
