Candy Cane Macarons

This week I made a variation of the Candy Cane Bark but in a macaron.

The macarons have a cookie shell that are peppermint flavour, with a Lindt chocolate ganache filling infused with fresh mint leaves, and rimmed in crushed candy canes. Yummy!

What could be more perfect for Christmas than that?! 😉

A Birthday Cake For My Husband! :)

I must admit, I was a little late creating a birthday cake for my husband this year. Now I did have a good reason.. we were in Peru on vacation at the time, so I am allowed a little slack. When the time did come to create something special, I wanted it to be fun.. something unexpected.. something he would get a kick out of.. So I made sure to include some of his favourite things: Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Bars, and Candy! 🙂

The final result: A Lindt Chocolate Brownie Cake with Chocolate Cream Mousse Filling and decorated with colourful Chocolate M&Ms and Kit Kat Chocolate Bars! Yum!

Not only was it super fun to look at.. it was so unbelievably delicious and decadent!
