Sweets, wine, and a good cause, what else do you need?

Spiced Roasted Plum Macarons

These macarons combine fall spices and summer stone fruit. Fresh plums are roasted with brown sugar, cinnamon, clove and star anise to warm up and deepen their sweet flavor. Then, they are mixed into Swiss meringue buttercream before being sandwiched between two fresh macaron shells. A taste of summer with the spice of upcoming fall.

Bananas Foster Tiramisu

This easy no bake dessert combines vanilla bean mascarpone filling with layers of cinnamon spiced buttered rum soaked Nilla Wafers, banana slices, and candied walnuts. It's little bit of banana pudding, tiramisu, bananas foster and a whole lot of delicious all rolled into one no bake dessert.

Angel Food Cupcakes

These Red, White and Blue cupcakes are perfect for your 4th of July BBQ but are a great dessert anytime. The light fluffy angel food cake is topped with sweetened vanilla bean whipped cream, fresh berries and crunch meringue kisses. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a special touch.

Mini Brown Butter Sweet Cherry Pie Cupcakes

These cupcakes might be mini but they are big on flavor! Brown butter cake is filled with sweet cherry filling, swirled with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream, and topped with an almond brown butter crumb. Mixing in some Luxardo cherry liqueur into the filling help to bring out the bitter almond and tart flavors of the cherries and the warmth and spice of the crumb brings it all together.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Pie with Salted Peanut Butter Caramel

One of my favorite summer treats is a Drumstick ice cream cone, the salty peanuts, the chocolate shell, the caramel middle surprise checks all the boxes for me. This ice cream pie is inspired by all of those flavors. The pie starts with a crunchy waffle cone crust, then a layer of vanilla ice cream swirled with a decedent salted peanut butter caramel, then, it is all topped with hot fudge and salted peanuts. Finish it off with a few swirls of whipped cream and a healthy drizzle of the caramel and you have one show-stopping no bake dessert.
