So it’s been a looong time since I’ve posted a decorated cake (almost 5 months!!), and I’m so glad to be able to share this super cute garden themed cake that I made for a little girl’s 1st birthday.
What’s soft, fluffy, festive, and basically the best thing ever?? Peppermint marshmallows of course!
Homemade marshmallows are officially my favorite thing in the world. They taste so much better than regular store bought marshmallows and they have none of those nasty chemicals and preservatives either.
It’s time I show you how to make chocolate ganache! Chocolate ganache is one of my absolute favorites. This is partly because of how easy it is to make and partly because it’s delicious.
You only need a couple of ingredients. Chocolate, heavy cream, and optionally vanilla extract. That’s it.
Happy Halloween everyone! I don’t know about you, but Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays ever. Not just because of all the candy, but also because of the fun and festive desserts that I can make. I love making Halloween everything- cupcakes, rice krispy treats, cookies, and SO much more.
I’ll admit that I wanted to do so much more for Halloween this year, but unfortunately between school and family visiting, I didn’t have enough time to do that. But, I did manage to make these adorable sugar cookies!
I’ve always been a sucker for anything espresso/coffee flavored. Whether it be muffins, cookies, or ice cream.
And, I also love anything that has marshmallows in it (who doesn’t :)). I love them in my rice krispy treats, in hot chocolate, or in any of my s’mores themed treats.
So I thought, why not put the two of them together?
And that’s just what I did!
It’s summer, and here in California it can get pretty hot. In fact, some days are even too hot to use the oven. But that’s okay, cause I have a no bake summer treat that’s frozen, refined sugar free, and chocolatey! Did I mention the chocolatey part? It’s basically everything you could want in a popsicle.
Last weekend happened to be Father’s Day, so I had to of course make something for my wonderful dad.
As some of you know, my dad is gluten free, sugar free, and mostly vegan. Given these circumstances, coming up with something that he would really enjoy was a bit challenging. While searching for ideas on Pinterest, I came across a picture of a beautiful strawberry tart that came from a wonderful blogger- What Jessica Baked Next. This inspired me to make a tart like dessert.
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?
