Spring has sprung and all the sleepy days of winter now awakens each little bud and bloom.  A natural rock wall lends the perfect background for the flower-filled and garden themed table- setting.   The centerpiece of this garden landscape features clean hand trowels, garden gloves, early blooming grape hyacinths and terra cotta pots.  A child’s pair of polka-dot rain boots stake out a planted position on the table.  A large terra cotta saucer serves as a charger for the white dinner plate and the yellow flowered salad plates.   Simple mason jars and green napkins are placed on the beverage table.

Color Splash Dessert Idea: Chocolate Mousse Brownies

This garden party will end soon but not before dessert is served.  Even though this dessert looks complicated it is very simple to create. If you like chocolate, whipped cream and brownies this dessert is for you.

Chocolate Mousse Brownie Cakes are made with chocolate ganache and whipped cream that is gently blended together then poured and molded in a silicone baking mold.  A baked thin brownie is cut the size of the mold opening and placed on top of the mousse, then frozen.  The mold is inverted and a layer of thinned chocolate ganache is poured over the frozen mousse and brownie.  Garnish the top of the dessert with butter cream frosting flowers or simple candies.  To see recipe for Chocolate Mousse Brownie Cakes .
