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!


  1. Emily, this is BEAUTIFUL! Everything... the fabulous desserts, the setting, the photos. How long have you been doing this?


  2. Okay...I want YOU to cater a party for me sometime! Both events I have seen on here have been so inviting and beautiful!

  3. I love this/want to try one right now!
