Our new friend Jeanne Benedict, who is the host / chef / designer of the TV theme party show, Weekend Entertaining, on the DIY network, created a super cute Mad For Plaid Holiday Party Theme using our Plaid Wafer Paper! She has some fun and delicious holiday recipe ideas that we would love to share with you!
Her Mad For Plaid Party Theme was inspired by RumChata liqueur, a delicious blend of real Wisconsin dairy cream, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla perfectly balanced with five times distilled Caribbean rum.
RumChata Gingerbread Martini – recipe from Jeanne Benedict
- 3 parts RumChata
- 1 part Torani gingerbread syrup (or substitute Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur)
- 2 parts vanilla rum
Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with gingerbread cookie crumbles.
To play out the theme on the drink, she applied our Plaid Edible Wafer Paper to a gingerbread man cookie and used melted chocolate to stick him to the rim – how clever!
To create the forest centerpiece, she used birch logs and inserted Minty Marbled Christmas Tree Marshmallow Lollipops! Use this homemade marshmallow recipe and substitute fresh mint for the rosemary and swirl green food coloring on top of the marshmallow mixture after you pour it into the pan.
Are these not the cutest holiday treats you have ever seen? She used red candy melt chocolates to make the Santa hat and topped it with a marshmallow rolled in coconut, water, and powdered sugar. The hat’s trim is white fondant. How fun!
More treats from her party include…
…cute white chocolate mousse cups with peppermint brickle on top and…
…gingerbread cupcakes wrapped and topped with more of our Plaid Wafer Paper.
Photos, recipes and ideas in this post are thanks to Jeanne Benedict!
