Lemonade & Sunshine

Today I had the time, energy and sunshine needed to have an impromptu photo shoot of a new-to-me dessert I had been wanting for weeks to make. Berry Charlottes! Haven't you heard of them? A Charlotte is a French dessert made in a mold with ladyfingers filled with mousse or fruit (in this case both) and then chilled. Once chilled, you take it out of the mold for immediate serving. I've seen them served with or without ribbons but I think they just look so beautiful with a ribbon.
White chocolate mousse filling topped with blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.
They are as delicious as they look!

The antique secretary desk was mine as a little girl and I love that it's still around.

A perfect afternoon treat to share with friends on a hot summer day!

Sweetest Baby Shower

I just got back from setting up a dessert bar for a baby shower at a beautiful home in Great Falls! Here are some of the pictures:

The parents-to-be are not finding out the gender so the hosts chose a green/neutral color scheme
Chocolate cake pops
I love how these cookies turned out!  Carriages, baby bottles and teddy bears wearing bibs!

Baked apple pies! My friend Meghan at The Hospitality Sweet makes these in a FRIED version. Yum.
I was so excited to make this buttercream ruffle cake
