If you put a good dessert down in front of me, you can pretty safely bet that only a few crumbs or sprinkles will be left behind by the time I’m done, but these chocolate mousse cups prove to be the one delicious exception. They were so rich, I couldn’t even finish mine! Although I do have to admit, I may have made the serving sizes a bit larger than necessary... πŸ˜†
*Almost* too adorable to eat πŸ˜†
Fun fact - having a family member with chickens is pretty fantastic. Fresh eggs galore! And just look at those hues 😍
I finally got the opportunity to make a unicorn cake! I have to admit, I had some misgivings about the color scheme here before I began to decorate, but it all worked out in the end. So proud of this one 😌✨
Not only was this cookie dough so easy to work with, it made some really delicious cookies! The dark and slightly bitter cookies balanced nicely with the sweet white chocolate filling and tasted better than real Oreos, IMHO. The white chocolate ganache gave me a decent amount of trouble (too thin at first, then super thick but broken πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ), but I managed to make it work and I'm so glad I did!

So I may have gotten a little carried away with the silver splatters here... maybe I should work on the art of subtlety? πŸ˜‚
Gold cake decor is always a yes πŸ˜†
My mom has been using this recipe for chocolate chip cookies for as long as I can remember, and for good reason! These are just the right amount of thick and chewy - exactly what chocolate chip cookies should be, in my humble opinion. 😌
Triple chocolate brownies. Enough said.
Three of my favorite things in one picture - chocolate, raspberry, and gold sprinkles 😊
Berries and buttercream - match made in heaven 😌
The semi naked cake trend is definitely one that needs to stay 😌
Hands down, my favorite cake filling... ganache for the win!
Cookie tartlets - noun. Definition: way less work than tarts made with pΓ’te sucrΓ©e, and just as tasty! Left to right: Chocolate raspberry, chocolate caramel, chocolate peanut butter

Sweet simplicity ✨
The amount of chocolate I packed into my little birthday cake is kind of incredible. You can see below for flavor details, but before you do that, I want to say a big thank you to YOU - all fifteen thousand of you! Especially because I hit 15k on my 15th birthday, which just seems too good to be true. Your support and interest in this passion of mine is so special to me. ❀️ - This is three layers of chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache, frosted with hazelnut chocolate chunk buttercream, covered in chocolate glaze, and adorned with chopped hazelnuts, hazelnut dark chocolate espresso macarons, and buttercream dollops. - Yes, it may be a *little* over the top, but since when is that a bad thing? It sure was tasty! πŸ˜‚ - Music from Bensound
What, did you expect me to let someone ELSE make my birthday cake?? Of course not! πŸ˜‚ This triple chocolate masterpiece is currently sitting in my refrigerator and I'm counting down the hours until we dig in! 🍽 I am totally in love with how this cake turned out and I'll be posting the video soon ✌🏼 (PS. If you've been watching my insta stories, you probably saw the trouble I was having with these macarons... after baking two semi-failed batches, I just decided to salvage a few of the best looking ones and use them πŸ˜†)
Definitely need to make these again soon...
Done with one cake and on to the next! My birthday is in two days and you can bet I'm planning a ridiculously chocolatey and slightly over-the-top birthday cake, so keep an eye out! πŸ˜†
