It seems that just about anything is cuter when it is miniature. Take a pie, for example, that typically serves eight people. Now shrink the full-size pie down so that it’s small enough for guests to easily pop into their mouths in one or two bites. The same can be done with a variety of dishes such as burgers and French fries, tacos and even macaroni and cheese. Serving a miniature portion of a dish can turn something like a simple grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup into a fancy appetizer.
Miniature foods allow guests to sample an array of dishes, without spoiling their appetites. The bite-sized foods also mean less mess for guests and hosts. It is easy to see why the miniature food trend has caught on so quickly. Just make sure not to forget to downsize your desserts too.
