How About Some Mini Mac-and- Cheese Cupcakes?

Canopy Rose Catering always cooks up lots of fun ideas for parties, wedding receptions and special events.

Creating child-friendly food stations is important if children will be in attendance at your special event.

Pizza, eggrolls, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut in whimsical shapes, chicken drummies, and pigs in a blanket have long been staple fare that children love.

Now here is an idea that we think kids of all ages would devour ... imagine miniature macaroni and cheese cupcakes, oh my!

Mini mac-and-cheese cupcakes so cute you'll eat 'em up

To hire Kathi Bess (formerly Dameron) & Canopy Rose Catering as your Tallahassee, North Florida or South Georgia caterer, call 850-539-7750 for availability.

Tallahassee Caterer Adds A Fruity Florida Twist To The Pie That Has Taken New York City By Storm

Anderson Cooper loves it.  The Momofuku Bakery and Milk Bar in New York City can't seem to make enough of it. Every day their enigmatic "Crack Pie" sells out.

Ok, first of all. Let me be clear on one thing. This pie does NOT include the illegal substance!

So what is the big hoopla all about anyway? Why is the new culinary creation "Crack Pie" taking New York City by storm?

Taste for yourself and guess what? You don't even need to zoom off to the Big Apple!

Canopy Rose is now offering our very own unique version of  "Crack Pie" to our catering customers in the Tallahassee, Florida area.

The Canopy Rose Crack Berry Pie is very much like the original Momofuku version except we have added a festive fruity florida twist that we know you'll just love.

Order it ala carte today as a whole pie or include it as the dessert for your next catered luncheon or dinner.  We also offer Crack Berry Pie stations where the pie is served in stemmed martini glasses (very chic!) These are simply perfect for wedding receptions and other soirees.

For more information and to verify availability call Canopy Rose Catering, the Tallahassee, North Florida or South Georgia caterer, 850-539-7750.

Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
