This swiss roll Yule log is both beautiful and delicious. Mocha swiss meringue buttercream is spiraled with espresso sponge cake, all covered in chocolate ganache and adorned with truffles, macarons, and chocolate leaves. ...and of course a little powdered sugar makes everything look like a festive winter wonderland.
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.
