Pulling off this sweet buffet is easy because you can make everything ahead
I’ve long held that dessert is the most essential and anticipated part of any meal, especially during the holidays. So why not create an entire party that’s devoted only to desserts? Sure, this is a slightly radical idea, but the way I see it, a dessert party is the ultimate holiday event: unexpected, festive, and ever-so-slightly decadent. A desserts-only bash is also an amazingly carefree way to entertain, because everything can be made ahead. With just a few finishing touches before your guests arrive, you’ll be party-ready.
