Watermelon Cupcakes For Summer!

Watermelon Cupcakes for Summer |

It rained last night. No, it poured, and I was delighted. I went outside to smell the smells and soak it all in. I didn't care how wet I got.

I'm on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. We're visiting my family who live in the middle of the woods.

Trend: Decorated Stacked Cookies

by Jillian Leslie on

Stacked decorated cookies are a new dessert trend we're seeing on

When I see a new trend showing up on our site, especially one that's so beautiful, I have to share it right away. So here's my first trend spotting for 2015. Introducing... decorated stacked cookies. Aren't they gorgeous?!

Most of the ones we're seeing are simple sugar cookies or shortbread cookies, and sandwiched between them is pretty frosting. Plus there seems to be a definite flower theme, lots of piped rosettes and added gumpaste flowers. And don't forget the sparkle. To really make these decorated stacked cookies stand out, we're seeing glittered detail on the edges of the cookies, or completely covering the cookies.

Cornflake marshmallow chocolate chip cookie recipe!

If you're looking for a decadent and delicious cookie, then definitely check out our cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookie recipe.

We based this on the famous recipe found in Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, but we made some tweaks to ours that we think make them a little easier to make, and give you a little thicker and chewier cookie.

{RECIPE} Tips for Making French Macarons

by Jillian Leslie on

I know, French macarons. We've all heard the horror stories of how hard they are to make. But they are also absolutely gorgeous, look great on a dessert table, and where I come from, cost about $3.50 per macaron. So maybe I need to rethink my fear of trying. :)

To help me, I asked macaron expert and professional baker, Chris Roberson of Frostine Bakery. She makes hundreds of macarons, so if anyone knows how to do it, she does. She's shared not only her recipe but her trade secrets. Thank you, Chris, our lips are sealed (except for the fact that I'm posting it)!
