Birthday Desserts

Vanilla Bean-Chocolate Ganache Macaroons

Desserts are one of my favorite foods to make & eat. I've been inspired lately by new pastry blogs that I have found. I tried a few new recipes and make birthday desserts for a few special people.

Spice Cupcakes with Molasses Cream Cheese Frosting and Walnuts was the dessert of choice for my dad. I tried a few different recipes to see which I liked the best and I am so happy with how they turned out. No one particular spice was overpowering and the frosting was heavenly!





For my husband I made these Espresso-Panna Cotta in individual shot glasses with Triple-Chocolate Cookies. It was so good! Vanilla flavored, creamy goodness with a little taste of espresso in each bite. And these small glasses provided the perfect amount of this rich dessert.





I'm looking forward to making some fun desserts for a friend's daughters 1st birthday party next month. She is going with a ballerina so I can't wait to see what we come up with!
