Don't you just love "mini's"?

Dont't you think everything is cuter when it is smaller? The hottest growing trend at wedding receptions has been finger food. I have seen mini ruebens, soup served in shot glasses, fries served in a juilep cup, mini corndogs..the list goes one.My all time favorite mini is the "Mini Macaroni & Cheese"compliments of Martha Stewart. People love mini foods at wedding, but keep in mind, there are a few rules you need to follow:

1. Make it Tidy-There is nothing worse than biting into a tiny bit of finger food and having it gush/squirt/or crumble all over your party dress. Avoid foods that are too flaky or contain a lot of liquid sauce inside. Sushi is good as long as it is not drippy. Stuffed mushrooms are another stable but elegant finger food.

2. Make sure it has a dip-Dips can transform ordinary raw fruits and vegetables into a novelty. They can ad diversity, elegance, and even a little fun to your menu without vastly increasing the cost. Some good dips for sweet food are: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, caramel, cream, plain white chocolate or flavored white chocolate. Lime is a popular flavoring for white chocolate. For savory foods ranch, cheese, salsa, or artichoke dip are excellent compliments
Follows those 2 simple rules, and your mini's will be a hit at your next event.
