Oscars GIF Guide: Get a Sneak Peek at Wolfgang Puck's Desserts For the Governors Ball
The most glamorous Sunday of the year is almost upon us! Oscar nominees like Julianne Moore, Bradley Cooper, and Reese Witherspoon will be flitting from one ultra-chic event to the next all day long tomorrow in the pre- and post-Academy Awards flurry of festivities. But no party will be more anticipated than the grand Governors Ball.
This Sunday, celebs will sip 1,350 bottle of champagne at the post-#Oscars Governor's Ball.
Taking place at the Ray Dolby Ballroom immediately after the Academy Awards, 1,500 lucky guests will gather to take selfies with borrowed Oscars statues and (we're calling it!) watch Channing and Jenna Dewan-Tatum cut a rug. They'll also get to sample a dizzying menu of over 50 decadent dishes from Chef Wolfgang Puck, including perhaps the best course of all--- dessert!
This is the master chef's 21st consecutive year feeding the hungry stars at the Governors Ball. He gave us a sneak peek at two of the swoon-worthy desserts that his team is hard at work creating.
Puck's team envisioned a menu that fuses vintage inspirations with contemporary tastes. Here, the classic chocolate cupcake is transformed with a decadent dollop of marshmallow frosting which is delicately toasted with a handheld torch.
Each strawberry marshmallow rocher is hand-dipped by artists from Puck's pastry team, including Kamel Guechida, Jason Lemonnier, and Della Gossett. In the process, they will use up 2,450 lollipop sticks and 350 pounds of sugar. All that hard work will certainly make for a sweet after-party!
