Mini Watermelon Cakes

If you are looking for a healthier alternative to a birthday dessert, make some 
Mini Watermelon Cakes.

Mini Watermelon Cakes filled with a light Tropical Fruit Whip are a healthier treat for a birthday party and are quick and easy to make.

Stack layers of watermelon and pineapple together with a light tropical fruit whip in between each to create festive little birthday desserts that wont ruin your diet. 

That's rather funny for me to say on this blog where practically every thing I make is indulgently rich and luxuriously high in calorie. Don't get me wrong, I love making and eating desserts, I just have to balance all that indulgence with some healthier options and these little cakes make a wonderful treat.

Rainbow Petit Fours

Bring some color to your next tea by serving these pretty raspberry and apricot filled pound cake 

Rainbow Petit Fours

My friends love to go to tea to spend an afternoon talking over a tower of little cakes, clotted cream and scones. I myself am not a fan of drinking tea, but do love indulging in little tea cakes.

These tiny cakes would really brighten up any table at tea time. They are colorful inside and out with a rainbow of sugary glaze running down the sides of the cakes and bright red raspberry jam and orange apricot jam in between layers of almond pound cake.

Ladies' Hat Piñata Cookies

Wearing ladies hats may have gone out of fashion, but these festively decorated 
Ladies' Hat Piñata Cookies will still be fun treats to serve on Mother's Day.

These Ladies' Hat Piñata Cookies will make a lovely dessert for Mother's Day, a Kentucky Derby Party, or even a bridal shower.

I wish I would have gotten this recipe posted last week before the Kentucky Derby. It is still quite fashionable for women to wear elaborate hats to the horse race and these brightly colored candy filled hat cookies would have made perfect party favors or desserts for the event. 

But, alas, my crazy schedule kept me from writing the post even though I made these cookies 2 weeks ago.

Rainbow Reveal Semifreddo

There's a rainbow hiding inside this lemon semifreddo.
How'd that get in there?

I'm glad you were curious to see how this is made.

This was a tricky recipe to figure out, but once I did it, I found that it really is a pretty simple dessert to create. Making the half moon shaped rainbow cakes takes a bit of time and patience, but it's not difficult and the rainbows look so cool inside this frozen dessert.
