Royal Icing Hibiscus Flowers

Busy working on my Royal Icing Hibiscus Flowers to decorate your Cakes and Cupcakes, the mini ones could easily be placed on your cake pops as well!

New to my shop are Stark White Hibiscus flowers with a pale soft green center and I have added just a little glitter to add sparkle to your special day or event  🙂

All my flowers are available at my Etsy shop Village Sweets.

If you need a special color or size, no worries, I can custom make your order with pleasure.

Thanx for looking at my page and have an amazing day!!

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  🙂

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?

Cookies…Cookies…Cookies

The weather has certainly been a downer here.  Our winter has been, well to put it midly SUCKY!  When the sun is out, it’s the darn deep freeze, when the temperatures are reasonable, it’s rain and ice, the damp makes you grumpy and you swear for dear life that you make it down your driveway (aka ice rink) safely.  Oh well, as I wait for a brighter day I am going to bake!  So this week at Village Sweets, cookies are what have been coming out of the oven.  So many cookies, Molasses Spice – Our delicious Scotch Shortbread – Chocolate Chip with White Chocolate and Caramel.  

All our cookies are available at our Etsy shop:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/VillageSweets

Valentines day is coming, our cookies come packaged or boxed with Valentines Flair!  Give your sweetie a delicious Village Sweets Cookies gift, they will adore you even more for it!!
