Apple Decorated Cookies

So I normally don’t decorate cookies with royal icing, but when I got an order from my school to make these adorable apple shaped cookies, I couldn’t resist. You see, my school hosts a “Staff Appreciation” day in which a luncheon is organized just for them. I was asked if I could make cookies that looked like apples. I thought that it would be super cute to have these cookies as a part of food buffet that was organized for my teachers, and plus I don’t do enough of decorated cookies, so I said of course!

Holiday Desserts and Treats

IMG_5807

I know, I know. I haven’t posted a blog-post in FOREVER. Well a month to be exact. But, I have a perfectly reasonable excuse for it.

I was sick. Really sick.

It was pretty terrible. I basically lived in my bed for a couple of weeks. And what’s worse is that I got sick during the Winter HOLIDAYS!

But that doesn’t mean I didn’t bake anything, cause everyone in my family knows that I’ll be the one making Holiday desserts for them to eat. Unfortunately, because I was asleep half the day, and I was exhausted or in a coughing fit for most of the other half of the day, I didn’t get to bake as much as I’d wanted to. But I couldn’t just not post a couple of holiday recipes for you guys. Right?

HALLOWEEN Treats {& Video Tutorial}

Last Friday was one of my favorite holidays- It was HALLOWEEN! I have always loved Halloween since I was a toddler. I love the costumes and the candy, but most of all the Halloween baking!

There are so many things that I would’ve made this year, but I settled on a couple of very simple and tasty treats that were really fun to make.

The first treat I made were these very cute mini candy corn themed cupcakes. These were SO easy to make. I basically took some vanilla cake batter and dyed half of the batter orange and the other half yellow with food coloring. Then I put a scoop of yellow cake batter in the cupcake liner and then on top, a scoop of orange cake batter. I let the cupcakes bake like usual and then piped on some white vanilla buttercream on top to complete the candy corn effect.

Cookies N Cream Popsicles

Since summer is coming to an end, I decided that this was my last opportunity to make a frozen treat to cool me off these last few summer days.

I recently made some healthy fruity popsicles, and even though these probably aren’t as healthy, they are equally delicious!

Today’s recipe is on how to make Cookies N Cream Popsicles!

These Popsicles are made of Oreos (or any cream filled cookie), cool whip, a bit of sugar, and homemade almond milk.

Cookies + Cute Packaging!

Today I’m going to share a bunch of cookies that I baked for my aunt who flew from overseas to stay with us for 4 weeks.

She was going to leave in few days, so of course I couldn’t let her leave empty handed!

I baked a few different types of cookies for her and my family in Pakistan to munch on.

French Macarons

Hi everyone! Today I will be sharing a dessert that has been on my baking bucket list for the longest time- French Macarons!

IMG_3350[1]

These are very pretty and delicate sugary treats.

Just to make it clear, Macarons are not the same as Macaroons. I know a lot of people are confused about what the difference is, and the difference is that Macarons are almond based while Macaroons are coconut based.
