Hi,

I need to have some office crowd pleasing desserts that are light on the cost and not too much fuss but will make a statement. Has to be diet too. I know it's a tall order. 

Thanks in advance

How dietetic? Like only fruit or whole wheat flour-splenda-applesauce kinda things?

There;s so much you can do with fruit art...just google it.

Panna Cotta with fresh berries on the side, pears poached in wine with (light?) chocolate sauce, mini strawberry crostadas with (light?) whipped cream. See what's in Season in your area.

OMG!  I've never seen anything so simple, elegant, and beautiful!!!!  I am a line cook in a senior facility and a few are on a restricted to no sugar plan.  They would love these and I would love to stop seeing our fruit in the walk-in go to waste.

Since I'm mainly on desserts anyway, this will be my creation today (provided he allows me to).  

Thank you so much.  Of course, I always give credit to the inventor!

My pleasure, @Etherial   I think pears would be a lovely option, and perhaps use fig jam.

Curious....how did things turn out?
What sort of desserts did you decide on and were they received well?

I messaged Petalsandcoco about the apple rose for large banquet events (200+ ppl): as soon as the worst of wedding season is over, I will have time to experiment with how long the apple slices will hold before discoloring, how long you can hold the unbaked roses (a day?), etc.... it is such a great looking dessert!

 Unclear as to why one would redirect to a "resident" poster. Recently there has been a redirect again.

How did it turn out?  The "recipe" has been circulating around on the www.  Any questions, feel free to ask them here :)

I guess I'll respond, not that I think I need to explain myself. You're talking about something that I posted months ago and I was referring to something that was discussed over a year ago.

I can't remember what I had for breakfast, never mind months and years ago. I certainly did not do something to intentionally step on your toes or insult your. Trust me, there would be no question about that. I'll take a shot though, when I log on to ChefTalk, as I've been doing for 14 years, I hit the new posts option because I'm usually up to date. I assume when I logged on to that thread the last couple of posts came up on the screen. So I responded. I referred someone to a Professional Chef if they should need assistance. I certainly would not have opted to watch a clip someone posts from who knows where.

I'm pretty sure you're still unclear because I certainly am.
