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!

Just Baked

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!).

Happy Baking everyone!

 

 

Minions and Hockey

Created a Despicable Me Minion cake for a Minion & hockey lover, a Montreal Habs hockey lover at that!  At least she has good taste lol!  First time making a minion, hopefully won’t be the last.  They are so adorable, I just wanted to hug him, but I guess that would not be such a good idea, so I guess you could say I just wanted to EAT him!

Decadent Yuletide Cakes

Yuletide logs or here in Québec, “Bûche de Noël” are an absolute tradition in my family.  I have made them every year now for quite some time.  I am most fond of the Vanilla cake with Mocha filling and a deep Chocolate frosting.  I think it’s really my favorite, especially if you like coffee.  I now bake a delicious Vanilla cake with a “Tutti-Frutti” filling (cherries and peaches, yummm!) with a Vanilla-Almond frosting and delectable White-Coconut Chocolate bark, oh my I can’t wait to eat it!!  

Village Sweets has our Specialty Yuletide Logs (Bûche de Noël) on our Menu for ordering in case anyone is interested…
