Let Us Eat Cake
Last weekend the New England Dessert Showcase took place at the Marriott Long Wharf. I've never seen so much cake, cookies, brownies and sweets under one roof in my life and we sampled all afternoon.
It was a sea of elegant cakes and cookies.
There were lots of exhibitors doing some really beautiful and inventive things with desserts.
Have yourself on a brownie!!!
One of our favorites was Simply Divine Brownies who can actually put your picture or logo on a brownie.
Watching the Whirl-Ease-Tea
One of the new things we saw was Whirl-Ease-Tea. Drop one of these sticks into a mug of hot water and stir it around a bit and you've got a cup of sweetened teas. And it's good!
The Food Monkey hosts the presentation demo.
Our fellow Boston food blogger Mike Prerau of The Food Monkey was on hand to host a demo on creating dessert presentations to impress that the attendees seemed to enjoy. They couldn't get enough of those gold leaf decorated brownies. Hey, it's a tough economy out there!

All in all it was a great way to spend a beautiful Autumn afternoon on the waterfront and judging by the size of the crowd streaming through it is certain to now be an annual event.
