This lemon and white chocolate mousse is so delicious, light and refreshing, not to mention super pretty due to its charming lemon shape. Therefore, I'm naming it "best dessert of the summer"! 😊

Lately I've been hooked on baking cakes. Layered cakes to be precise. I think it's the influence of all those amazing cake-decorating videos and accounts on Instagram ! 💁 Hence, my latest creation - this delicious, super pretty and oh-so easy to bake and decorate lemon and berries cake with Mascarpone frosting.  We served this cake at our mothers' day tea party a couple weeks ago, but it would be perfect to serve at a baby or bridal shower, or any other spring or summer party!

Honey & Lemon Floral Lollipops

Honey & Lemon Floral Lollipops

I first made these sugar lollipops for my kids garden party some years ago (read it here ) . Back then, I didn't have a lollipop mold or a candy thermometer, but they turned out great nonetheless! Fast forward six years, and  now that I own a proper mold, the possibilities are endless, my friends!  Like adding edible flowers and Spring bloom to make it into a more grown-up version ;)

Pineapple Cookie Cake

Pineapple Cookie Cake

Have you seen these amazing, trendy cream tarts in shapes of numbers and letters, taking over Instagram and Pinterest ?  Well, I personally like to call them "cookie cakes" instead because, well, they look like layered cake to me! They're basically two giant sugar cookies sandwiched together with some sort of frosting in the middle, and decorated on top with tons (and I mean tons) of candy, fruit, macarons, chocolate, edible flowers...you're only limited to your imagination when it comes to the decor of these cookie cakes!

Summer Berries Cheesecake Bars

Summer Berries Cheesecake Bars

This recipe came about by accident, sort of. I was looking for a recipe online that I could make to use up all the blackberries I have growing in my garden. Eventually I found a simple enough cheesecake recipe and bought all the ingredients to make it, but on the day I decided to make it, the blackberries were not ripe yet! So, I swapped the blackberries for frozen summer berries (which I always have in the freezer), and it was a hit!

St. Patrick's Day is 'round the corner, and what better appetizer than a creamy houmous, to soak up the lashings of Guinness ?!  This is a favorite dip in our house, and makes a welcome appearance on many cocktail parties because it's super easy and quick to make, quite healthy, you can make it a day in advance, and tastes DIVINE!  My husband has been know to "drink" the stuff. Neat! So I always make sure I make plenty. And I have a little secret for making it super creamy too!

Cherries are in season and I couldn't pass up the chance of making a delicious dessert with them, hence this NO-Bake cherry cheesecake that comes together in a flash and tastes SO delicious! We're so lucky to live in cherry country and have some wild cherries growing on our land, so my kids and I always love to go cherry picking this time of year (before the birds eat them all), and making  dessert using cherries at the end of the day, is just the cherry on the "cake" so to speak! 😄
