A Little Dessert

I am very pleased to turn my Dish Diary spotlight on a little dessert!

Actually..."A Little Dessert" is a not-so-little but oh-so-sweet endeavor whipped up by a mother-daughter team...and with those two ingredients what's not to love! Janis Spidle and her daughter Kait have combined their culinary, business, and artistic talents to create a dessert catering business.  They specialize in baking and displaying dessert tables for small events in the Kansas City area.

Janis learned to bake by watching her mother (now 80 years old and still working her magic in the kitchen) she always encouraged her to do her own own thing, a tradition that Janis has passed on to Kait. As a child,  Janis would give her extra dough to make her own cookies and frosting in decorating bags so she could create her own designs.

This inherited love of baking has deemed Kait the "Cheesecake Queen" - her mom admits that her daughter makes a better cheesecake than she ever could - Kait is also putting together a fantastic lineup of individual parfaits, some of which will have a coffee house theme.  

Janis handles fruit and cream tarts, mousse-filled chocolate cups and a whole host of other items. And she has recently become very excited about recipes for scratch cakes, the kind our grandmothers used to make and she is on the hunt for family recipes.  (If anyone has a tried-and-true recipe that they'd like to share with them, that would be most welcomed).

A Little Dessert was created to expand both mom and daughter's horizons as bakers but not limit themselves to one item like cakes or cookies.  They do everything from scratch and do not cut corners. However, they also help their clients do things on a budget.

You name it, A Little Dessert can do it!  Their goal is to put a little passion on everyone's plate! 

Here are a few of their more popular and eye-catching yummies:

- Chocolate Mousse Cups
- Cherry Pear Tarts
- Cheesecake Bites
- Two-Tiered Cakes
- Frosted Sugar Cookies
- Cupcakes galore

Please consider my friendly dynamic duo for your next event and "like" them on FB!  A Little Dessert.  You can contact Janis directly at 816-654-3051.
