This fun idea for a lighted holiday dessert platter was sent to me by one of my customer/students Sue Bettridge from New South Wales. She made it for her “Kick it up” line dance group Christmas party. It includes cheese cake and chocolate treats as well as unexpected illumination.
Here is how you can make a lighted holiday dessert platter.
1. Place the battery operated lights and cover with a clear platter.
2. Check the lights.
Here’s how they platter with lights looks before adding the desserts.
3. Add the desserts.
Here is Sue’s completed colorful dessert platter.
Sue also added a ceramic cowboy boot to go with the Kick it Up line dancing theme. The fiber optic tree in the book was probably also lit up. The flash photography overpowers the Christmas lights and the fiber optic lights so you have to use your imagination a bit to “see” how it looked lit up.
Thanks go out to Sue for sharing her fun idea. If you decide to make a lighted holiday dessert platter, We’d love to see your photos.
