CakePoPs and Mini Cupcakes seem to be the favorite the last few weeks. And why not? They are simple to make (maybe those decorations can take a little time, un hunhhhhh :0 right?) and they are simple to eat, no messiness, just pop ’em into your mouth e-a-s-y.
Here are a few pics I’m posting, cuz I have yet another cakepop ad mini cupcake order to get started on lol!
Awww Jelly-Rolls… don’t you just love them? They are such a versatile dessert in my opinion. The ingredients can be so simple or slightly complicated, but whatever you choose, however you decorate them, they can be quite awesome. I have made many a jelly-rolls and they are one of my favorites because you can just about make any flavor and fill them with whatever you want. Possibilities are endless and they are the perfect treat for your holiday (or any day) dessert table. Just saying….
My Black Forest Jelly Roulé complete with Kirsch soaked sour cherries and dark chocolate fans (or my attempt at making fans, hahaha) …Magnifique!
A long time favorite, Rice Krispy Treats with a twist. I added peanut butter and drizzled dark chocolate over top of bars once they cooled. Easy and fast to make. Sliced them up, wrapped them each tightly with plastic wrap. Makes a quick snack on the go.
My first attempt at Pavlova was a success! Usually made as one mound of meringue that is baked, crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. I piped out heart shaped forms for individual desserts. Topped with whipped cream and an assortment of fresh fruit and just a drizzle of passion fruit. Next time I will tint the meringue. They turned out great! Pavlova hearts were just perfect for my elegant dessert table.
Tried out a few new things… posting them here and on my instagram (LINDA.VS) and as always my facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/Village-Sweets-464749556939290/)
The pudding cups would be sooo cool for your Easter Dessert table 😀 My pudding cups had bits of Angel food cake. Flavors consisted of: 1) Chocolate with a toasted marshmallow cap. 2) Coconut cream with a meringue cap (lightly toasted). 3) Banana cream with a whipped cream topping and sliced bananas. 4) Custard and whipped topping (in pretty pastel cups and saucers). I think the possibilities are endless…
I also baked a delicious Applesauce Cake drizzled with caramel sauce (My applesauce and caramel sauce will soon be available for purchase at my Etsy shop village sweets, woohoo!).
Haven’t had much time for posting my cakes and sweets adventures, as my desserts will soon be available at a new restaurant opening here in my hometown. I will blog about that as it gets closer to its opening (we’re hoping for Mother’s Day). Been a busy baking bee. I will try to catch up when I have a free moment. These are my new “Hibiscus” flowers for my Etsy shop. I pretty much do them in any color possible and quite a few sizes.
Easter will be coming in a few short weeks, so I need to start thinking up what I will be doing for that weekend 🙂
