New England Dessert Showcase 2010

We attended the New England Dessert Showcase 2010 this weekend at the Westin Copley. This is the second year the event has been held, featuring some of the finest cakes, desserts and confections in New England. Here are some "sweet" pics and our top two favorites. Although there were some problems with the size of the crowd, we got there early and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Check out our behind the scenes pics courtesy of Paul Desrochers at SNHU. You don't see this stuff on any other food blogs.

The tuxedo dressed chocolate covered strawberries made by Konditor Meister.

The largest Boston Cream Pie in the world, made by the culinary students at Southern New Hampshire University. It basically took up the whole center of the exhibition hall. Great job guys! This was very impressive.

Pillow Cakes, one of the more unique creations by Keyks.

This three tier cake with the flower top was the design of Confectionism.

These Cake Pops by O'Sugar! Cakery in New Hampshire were a tie for our best taste at this event. Absolutely delicious and a really fun idea. Congratulations O'Sugar!

Sam Adams Oatmeal Stout ice cream! Could anything be better, we ask? This was a tie for our absolute favorite taste at this event. It's made by The Brewer's Cow, makers of super premium beer infused ice cream.

Ok, so here are the exclusive behind-the-scenes pics of how the students assembled the largest Boston Cream Pie. I guess they worked all night to have this ready for the opening. Pretty cool stuff. Thank you Paul Desrochers!


  1. Great photos is right! I am getting to love this event. The crowds make me think I am not alone. But I've exchanged emails with the people at Anthem and they are going to greatly reduce the amount of tickets available in 2011. Bravo to that. But this year was still fun and these photos you have are fantastic!

  2. Absolutely incredible event, can't wait to see what next year's showcase brings!
