Easy Tiramisu & Truffles

I’m a huge fan of Tiramisu by Tasty Pastry here in Alpharetta and I’ve always wanted to perfect the authentic Tiramisu recipe with the chiffon cake at the bottom, not the lady fingers kind (yuck). Unfortuntely, I’ve tried once and failed miserably and I haven’t had time to try again! I was thinking of ways to incorporate coffee into the cakeballs and I guess it really wasn’t that hard to come up with the solution! Butter cake moistened with coffee!! I used vanilla frosting to bring the dough together and wa-la! Tiramisu Cake Pops/balls. The butter cake is perfect with the coffee(black) and with vanilla frosting, it comes together perfectly. I used dark chocolate candy melts and white chocolate candy bark for dipping.


 I also had some left over butter cake so I figured I could try soaking them in coffee and sprinkling cocoa powder on top to make mini tiramisus!!

Gobble Gobble Pops

Belated Happy Turkey Day!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of turkey and yummy comfort food!! I love the holidays!! I have such a huge family, and a lot of us have birthdays before,during, and after the holidays, so it’s non stop feasting from halloween to the new year!! I told everyone at this time of the year I get ready for hibernation with the bears because we just keep eating!!

For thanksgiving I made 45 of these turkey cake pops for my little brother’s kindergarten class. Need less to say, I was pooped after the 20th but these cute little gobblers are so worth it after seeing the look on those kiddies faces!! It wouldn’t have been pretty if I didn’t make one cake pop for each little boy or girl. The parents definitely loved them even though at first glance I’m sure all they could think was,”oh my hyper 5 year old..”

The cake pops were oreo and red velvet.
Candy corn for the feathers.
Chocolate covered coffee bean for the face
Sprinkles dotted with edible pen for eyes
coated chocolate chip sprinkles for nose.

All Pink Bridal Shower Dessert Table!

 Here’s the first of many long long overdue posts. I’ve been baking a ton lately but I have the worst habit of baking and then forgetting to take, and post pictures of my creations!! Here’s a couple of pictures from the dessert table I was in charge of for my cousins bridal shower yesterday. Can you guess what her wedding theme was? =]

All the cake pops and cake balls were tiramisu and oreo. (recipe for tiramisu to follow)

 

The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were made from scratch along with swiss meringue buttercream. I made a huge batch of smbc on accident, and ended up with a
perfect rendition of Publix buttercream icing!! I still have to work with it a little bit and  record the recipe so I can share with you!!
