Cream Puff Towers

Macaron towers are so last year, and croquembouches are so old school! I needed something modern for my dessert tables, and we can’t deny the elegance and fun of a good old macaron tower. To be honest, a macarons would’ve sufficed, but macarons and I have a history, and I do everything I can do stay away from them. It […]

Chocolate Caramel Baby Shower Cake

So turns out, this whole nesting thing is real.  Or maybe I was just a little too happy to make pastries again. Or as my husband calls it, “just pregnant.” Either way, it’s been go time since my last post. Between painting the nursery and prepping for the baby shower, there’s been so much to do! But I love staying […]

Strawberry Champagne Macarons


Wow I can’t believe this year is already over (ugh I sound like literally every other person on this planet right now). I guess it’s true what they say, your 20s go by faster than you can blink. Wasn’t it my 21st birthday like last week?? Well either way, 2016 has come and gone, and what better way to celebrate […]

Apple Pie Churros

Before we start, can we just take a moment of silence for all the moisture that has decided to leave my hands?  “Moisturize me.”  I know some of you probably wouldn’t have noticed if I didn’t point it out. But for those of you who did notice, it would just be like a “I’m embarrassed for you, and you haven’t […]

Leftover Candy Mousse

This is the first time this has happened to me. I know it happens to other people all the time but me?? I thought it would never happen to me. But it did. I am officially sick of eating candy, but I have SO much leftover from halloween. Normally, this wouldn’t be an issue. Normally, I can eat candy all […]

Blackberry Jasmine Jam


I’ve never had a good blackberry before. It just doesn’t seem like the type of fruit that you would sit there and eat a bowl of. They’re like the black sheep of the berry family…they literally look like black sheep.  LOL – I had to. I’m sorry. Blackberries though, are really good when they’re made into something. Like a fizzy cocktail or jam. […]

Firecracker (Pop Rocks) Macarons

3…2…1… Cue the 4th of July themed foods. I’m going to go ahead and jump on the bandwagon with my red (or maybe pink), white, and blue macarons filled with a vanilla buttercream and pop rocks. I was patting myself on the back for being such a freakin’ genius for putting pop rocks and Independence Day together…until I had to go to […]

Mint Chocolate Mousse

St Patricks Day is almost here! Up until this year, I have always associated this holiday with binge drinking, irish car bombs, shots of jameson, and a hangover from hell. Well you can say I have finally learned my lesson, because this year, staying home and taking shots of chocolate mousse sound more than fine to me. We all have […]
