CakePoPs and Mini Cupcake Heaven

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!

Pavlova Hearts

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.

 

Hibiscus Flowers

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  🙂

Love doing Theme Cakes !!

Village Sweets created their first “Make-Up” cake…  woohoooo!  First the cake, a vanilla cake with a Dulce de Leche filling plus a whipped cream filling and I frosted the cake with a smooth Vanilla Butter Cream frosting and topped it all off with a Pretty Pink Fondant covering.  A quilted look with silver Dragées just made it gorgeous, some gum paste make up accessories and voilà this cake was ready to get eaten!

Sugar Shack Sweets

Here in Québec, we are celebrating Sugar Shack or “Cabane à Sucre” time.  My favorite is when hot maple syrup is poured on the snow and we roll it up on a popsicle stick.  Who hasn’t done that!  What a treat.  And the delicious sucre à la crème.  Wonderful time of year for these delicious sweets.  So, I just had to make a dessert that would honor our Cabane à sucre festivities.  I came up with Maple Gingerbread Cupcakes with an OMG sinful Sucre à la crème Frosting…one word about this frosting H-E-A-V-E-N !  I have to say, these are pretty darn tasty.  I added a pretty royal icing pansy for decoration since spring is just around the corner…or is it?
