~Pumpkin Ginger Creme Brulee~

~Two Chocolate Sandwich~
Milk Chocolate Mousse Layered Between
Dark Chocolate Puff Pastry

Sundried Cherry Chocolate…kirsch ganache
Ginger Squash… vanilla bean whip
Brown Butter Pecan…salted caramel

I had to try the cupcake flight last week instead of my usual tasting. I am glad I made the sacrifice, the ginger squash was really good. Luckily, Nick shared a bite of his tasting dishes with me. I’m a sucker for creme brulee, but the chocolate puff pastry was excellent! Though, nothing beats a nice warm treat like apple crisp on a fall night, cheesy, I know. But you know you love it.

Big iphone cupcakes

As you all remember, Nick and I had made mini iphone cupcakes a few weeks back. This time I was commissioned to make normal sized iphone cupcakes for an iphone fanatic’s birthday. So here they are. Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful posts and all your interest.

~Scarlett Poached Pears~
with Chocolate Earl Gray Ice Cream &
a Ginger Lemon Lace Cookie

~French Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwich Duet~
One Filled with Grapefruit Sorbet,
the Other with Tarragon Ice Cream

This past weeks one girl had a romantic feel to it. With the, scarlett poached pears and french macaroons, they also had a ~Maple Pecan Tart~ in espresso graham crust served with butternut squash creme fraiche ice cream. Nick and I made a big dinner, so we were too stuffed to order the tart. I love french macarons so I had to go for the full sized dessert instead of my usual tasting.

I also have a couple of photos from 2 weeks ago’s Confection, but I forgot the name of the desserts. I do remember Francina made deliscious brioche with concord grape jam!

Also, they had a really cute display of various french macarons:

Coming Soon….

So sorry my fellow Tuesday With Dorie-ers (?). I have been so busy lately with everything. I will have a NEW post up tomorrow. I will actually have a few posts. I have to catch up on my CONFECTION posts as well from One Girl Cookies. Thank you for your patience. xx

Here’s what I’ve been up to:

Every year all of our friends and I go beach/car camping in Montauk. And every year, we make a shrimp boil for lunch and chili for dinner by the camp fire.

Jaime & Co. manning the boil.

…..time to attack!
