As much as I love the dinner spread this dessert table really gets me so happy. A hobbit’s dessert table is jam-packed with seasonal fruit (ideally grown in the Shire), cheese with dried fruits and nuts, and beautiful little cakes. Just top that all off with some tea and you’ll even have dwarves knocking on your door in no time. I wanted this table to look fresh and bountiful so I was so lucky the berries were still beautiful and delicious at this time of the year. So, whether you’re throwing this party in the dead of winter or in the middle of summer, make sure to use what is seasonal.
I’ve posted recipes for this apple tart and seed cakes quite a while ago and while you definitely do not have to have these two items on the menu, I found it appropriate since they were mentioned in the book. These pastries can be made a day ahead but just remember to cover and seal it well to prevent it from drying out. Please enjoy.
