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.
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.

~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:
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!
