If you want to incorporate some fruit or another type of sweet spread, these presentations are ideal. Remember to rock the candy a bit.

That is, you can place sweet with cakes or layers of cream cheese, cream or other spreads that allow you to lower the sugaryness of the preparation a bit.

You can make like the tres leches shots and put a layer of sponge cake to nuance. Keep in mind that the other ingredients should be fluffier.

Even a touch of liquor can be included according to the people you are going to entertain. Go up a level in the presentation of your desserts with these delicious sweet shots.
