Winter Wonderland Turning One Cake

Mikael Sara is turning one! A Winter Wonderland was the theme and a cake, donuts and cookies were the confections. I added various colours of blue to decorate the snowflake shaped cookies. The donuts were a light shade of blue and simple sprinkles. The cake, a chocolate cake filled with cream and frosted with buttercream tinted a blue green topped with a fondant penguin.

CakePoPs and Mini Cupcake Heaven

CakePoPs and Mini Cupcakes seem to be the favorite the last few weeks.  And why not?  They are simple to make (maybe those decorations can take a little time, un hunhhhhh  :0  right?)  and they are simple to eat, no messiness, just pop ’em into your mouth e-a-s-y.

Here are a few pics I’m posting, cuz I have yet another cakepop ad mini cupcake order to get started on lol!

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!  

Vanilla cake with a Mocha Cream Filling and a Mocha Cream Frosting, entirely covered in fondant.

Go Habs Go!
