Oh Sweet Heaven!

You thought a candy buffet was just a candy buffet, didn't you? Wrong! Anyone can toss some candy into a few jars and call it a candy buffet, but just a peak at the work of the talented Amy Atlas of NYC will open your eyes to the true art of the dessert table.

These gorgeous tablscapes of sweetness look almost too pretty to touch, and are comprised of everything from candy (duh!), to cookies, cakes, cupcakes, chocolates and other tempting treats. The key to creating your own work of yummy art is to stick with either one colour combo or a certain theme (such as vintage or retro). Love the custom "Something Borrowed" cookies? Check out the great local company for your very own personalized treats.

For an inexpensive way to make your table look fab, create different levels of interest with cardboard boxes covered in craft paper or wallpaper. Add some ribbon and pretty labels, and a great backdrop to showcase your work of art, and presto! You might have yourself a candy buffet worth drooling over.

If you want to check out some more fabulousness, go to and you're in for a treat!
