Apple baking & decorating: wedding centerpieces, cider stations, recipes & candy apple parties

image

In Wisconsin we had a super mild winter which had an impact on our apple orchards so a lot of farms didn’t offer apple picking due to the shortage. I was looking forward to it too since I went last year. But it’s still a great time to bake, cook, drink….and even decorate with the fruit…

When people have fall weddings, especially rustic barn ones, I love to see apples on display. Paired with wine barrels and other woodsy elements like branches, it offers a pretty fall atmosphere…

But you don’t have to have an outdoor wedding. An upscale one inside a hotel is just fine…

My favorite part of fall is caramel apples….and fall colors. You can set up an interactive candy apple bar for a fun end to a party. That can serve as guests’ favors as well for a wedding…

Apple cider stations are another great way for guests to mingle….

I destroyed an apple crisp a few weeks ago. I put it on broil because I was too impatient with it baking. Walked away & four minutes tops….the top layer was charred. I said I enjoy cooking, not baking. But I will master it because it’s just so good.

I recently did a Rachael Ray recipe with maple glazed apples, potatoes & sweet onions. I’m very picky but it was good surprisingly. I want to try the above.
