French Macarons

Today I made 3 varieties of french macarons. The first, vanilla w. rhubarb creme turned out just ok. But the 2nd (chocolate w.nutella creme) and 3rd (lavender w/lemon creme) turned out perfectly. I have idea what happened the first time.

Definitely an easy dessert that looks difficult!

I used the recipe from David Lebovitz and subbed in different flavor combinations.

Yummy Deserts

This weekend was a busy weekend. First I made these tasty s'mores cupcakes for a camp out birthday party .. Graham cake w/chocolate center and toasted marshmallow topping. Then I made Fresh Strawberry Basil cupcakes with strawberry buttercream for a baby shower. These are definitely a favorite!

Easter Chick Cake Pops

I finally had the courage to try making these cake pops after seeing bakerella's blog. They didn't look as perfect as hers but for my first try.. they came out pretty cute. I dropped them at my daughters school for an Easter party and the kids & teachers loved them.

I'm sure I will get requests next year!

I made my own carrot cake & combined it w/a homemade cream cheese frosting. The cakes were still moist after 5 days! Good to know since the decorating can take some time!
