All in 12 Days of Christmas
This festive Yule log combines coconut, almond and white chocolate flavors for a beautiful and delicious dessert. Almond sponge cake is rolled and covered in white chocolate coconut Swiss meringue buttercream. Topped with almond slice pinecones and white chocolate holly leaves and then sprinkled with coconut flakes and powdered sugar. This winter wonderland is sure to be the star of your Christmas dessert table.
These mini cupcakes combine spice, tart and sweetness. Spicy gingerbread cupcakes are filled with luscious Meyer lemon curd and topped with sweet and tart raspberry buttercream. A sprinkling of freeze dried raspberry pieces adds a festive colorful touch. These are perfect to have on hand for company over Christmas and their popable size is great for snacking ;)
These two bite mint chocolate marshmallow cookies aren’t only adorable they are delicious. Fluffy mint marshmallow is piped on top of mint chocolate ganache dip dark chocolate cookies. They have the perfect cooling mint flavor without overpowering the chocolate or tasting like toothpaste. Even if you aren’t a mint chocolate fan these petite cookies might be worth trying.
These crispy spice cookies are addictive to say the least. Rolling the dough out super thin gives them a wonderful snap and the combination of spices and sweet molasses makes them the perfect holiday treat to share with friends and family.
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.
Pecans, orange zest, and sugar are layered between crispy phyllo layers all soaked in a spiced wine syrup. What this baklava lacks in traditional flavors it makes up for in presentation and deliciousness.
These little cakelette are bursting with holiday flavor. They are both tart and sweet from the fresh cranberries and the mini size make them perfect for entertaining.
Instead of purchasing a "cookie cutter" gingerbread cutter set, draw out your design on cardstock. Cut out the shapes from the card stock and place them on your rolled dough. Then, use a sharp knife cut out the shapes from the dough. That way, you have a gingerbread house unique to you
This layer cake includes a rich buttered rum soaked sponge cake and nutmeg spice swiss meringue buttercream. Decorated with fresh cranberries, almond slice pine cones, and a sprinkling of fresh powdered sugar "snow" this boozy cake version of Eggnog is perfect for your holiday table.
One of my favorite holiday treats is peppermint bark. So, I decided to turn the sweet snack into a more decadent version with dark chocolate cake and white chocolate peppermint crunch swiss meringue buttercream all topped with homemade peppermint bark and dark chocolate drip.
