It's officially fall y'all. The Autumnal Equinox may have started a few weeks ago but here in NC, this week has been the start of low temps, crisp nights and the continuous hankering for everything pumpkin spiced. So, for thirsty Thursday enter this Autumnal Pomegranate Fizz.
Store bought mini cruller donuts are used as the base of this easy no-bake strawberry shortcake. Slice some berries and whipped up a light sweetened mascarpone and dessert is ready in 5 minutes. Like the Barefoot Contessa taught us if you don’t have homemade “store bought is fine”.
These cupcakes combine tangy fresh blackberries with rich dark chocolate. Dark chocolate cake is filled with a creamy sweet whipped blackberry mascarpone and topped with rich blackberry dark chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Sprinkle the whole thing with chocolate curls and top with a fresh blackberry.
