Caterina “Kitty Cat” Borg doesn’t like to waste anything during holiday-entertaining season—not even her centerpieces. “We always wanna do something that’s going to be the highlight of your table.  Of course we don’t want to always do artificial things—as great as it is to put out a bouquet of flowers. But how cool is it to make something that people can eat off of, and you can reuse it at a Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year’s party?” the pastery chef tells Brilliant Ideas Radio host Hank Bob. “Have you ever made rock sugar? Well, it makes for beautiful centerpieces. A few years back, it became very chic, and you’d see it served in high-end hotels on the side of coffee and tea. And the rock-sugar centerpiece is a good one because it requires no baking. If you do like to bake, I’ve got another one that’s made of red-velvet cupcakes and with white-chocolate stars that’s just as easy and doesn’t take much time at all.”
