  • Tamarind Coffee Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Chocolate Frosting

    Dear Breakfast, I have tried. Really I have. I just can’t seem to get you. Or you aren’t that captivating enough to me. Not after that many years trying. I am willing to sacrifice more time getting to get you though. Really, I am. Even the little time I have left these days in the […]

  • Coffee Chicory Macarons

    The macarons: Hey Tartelette! Could you stop squeeezing us like sardines in that box? Me: You ain’t seen nothing yet fellas! Better get some cold rest before you go. The macarons: well, at least you did not forget the padding. It’s really cozy in here. Are we there yet? And off in the freezer they […]

    …more specifically Eclairs with Dark Chocolate-Espresso Mousse, Espresso-Dark Chocolate Pots de Creme and Frozen Mascarpone-Espresso Parfait on Deep Dark Chocolate Cake. Although this was work related, this is how I spend my Saturday. I am not getting fancy on you all of a sudden but it was either this post or more puddings, creams and […]

  • Buches De Noel – Looks Like Christmas Is Finally Here!

    Buches de Noel also known as Yule Logs were the challenge given by Lisa and Ivonne, founders and co-host this month of the Daring Bakers. I think they just had the perverted idea to see us buttered, creamed and rolled in light genoise, Swiss buttercream, decorated in meringue and flavorful Marzipan. You should not that […]

  • Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream and White Chocolate Cardamom Tartlets

    Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream and White Chocolate Cardamom Tartlets
