Jelly-Roll Heaven

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!

Iron Throne Cake

Have you heard of “Game of Thrones”, okay I know….WHO the heck hasn’t.  I must admit, I am an absolute fan of the tv series.  I cannot wait for Sunday (April 6, 2014) to get here so I can just sit and watch the must anticipated season 4 Game of Thrones.  Everywhere I look is Game of Thrones paraphenalia, and I LUVVV it!  So I was more then eager to start this next project in the baking studio…  A Game of Thrones “Iron Throne” cake, of course I added a little extra, like the RED leaves from the Weirwood tree and three Dragon Eggs. This cake better get eaten quickly before those eggs hatch!

Easter Garden Cupcakes

Easter will soon be hopping upon us, so I have been thinking up what I want my cupcakes to look like on my Easter table.  Hmmm, sooooo I have come up with a garden trellis with little roses!  I made up some Royal Icing roses and decorated my cupcakes garden style.  I think all the pastel colors made it look so springy!

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?
