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!

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

When it come to Holiday entertaining, it's always a great idea to serve a big-batch punch or signature cocktail that your guests can get stuck into straight away. Something that involves little effort, and maximum satisfaction is my motto.  So for my Silver & Blue Cocktail and Appetizers party I shared earlier in the week, I did just that.  Serving up a batch cocktail like this means you can prep it in advance and just forget about it, which in turn leaves you free to mingle and enjoy the party! Something we tend to forget sometimes at parties we host ourselves (sound familiar?) 😉
