Sweet On EASTER Resorts, restaurants to offer luscious desserts during holiday dining on Sunday
For those who don’t expect to receive an Easter basket, something sweet and wondrous may await Sunday, especially if you plan on dining out.
It could be rich and creamy or luscious and light as air.
That’s because special holiday desserts — whether lavish, traditional or themed — will be showcased at the island’s resorts, hotels and restaurants.
For many older kids and adults celebrating the holiday, such memorable sweet endings may serve as welcome Easter basket equivalents, of sorts.
“As much as children, adults react with a sense of wonder to beautiful presentations and mouthwatering selections,” said Anthony Sicignano, executive chef of restaurants at The Breakers.
More than 30 different types of desserts will be featured at The Breakers’ Easter brunches in the resort’s Circle dining room and Ponce de Leon Ballroom.
The desserts will range from toasted coconut cakes to buttercream-frosted mini cupcakes accented with sweets in Easter-themed shapes such as chicks and robin’s eggs.
The lavish confection displays also will include French macarons, carrot cake, truffles, petits fours, tartelettes, made-to-order crème brûlée and much more.
Thanks to the pastry team at The Breakers, 1 S. County Road, such elegant goodies have, by design, “an ageless appeal — whether nostalgic or classic items, traditional favorites with a modern twist or innovative sweets,” Sicignano says.
At Sant Ambroeus, known for, among other things, its pasticcerie and signature gelato, plans call for delighting Easter guests with a special dessert selection. Among desserts planned for the Royal Poinciana Way restaurant’s holiday brunch Sunday: decadent chocolate cake, fruit tarts and a selection of gelato.
