Deconstructed Banoffee Pie

14 Aug

It was my birthday two weeks ago and I had a little 80s themed party at home to celebrate (you can read about it here). I, with the help of my husband and friend Jocelyn, made all the desserts for the party which were mostly inspired by desserts of the 1980s or desserts that I remembered eating as a child. Banoffee Pie (i.e. banana, toffee and cream) was not something that my mother or grandmother ever made but it is definitely a dessert of the 1980s and given the fact that I absolutely love bananas I could not pass up the opportunity to recreate this fabulous dessert.

I don’t plan or organise parties often and I don’t get into the kitchen as often as I would like either but from my searches on the internet, party food has become a lot more like artwork than what I remembered (see example below). Fancy table linen, labels on all the food, cake stands and jars and everything is bite size pieces…

Feeling the pressure to conform to societal norms, I decided to make a few of my desserts in little (plastic, shh..!) cups. I had grand ideas of tying little ribbons and bows to the cups but time was not on my side, and to be honest neither was creativity, although I think they turned out great!
