Tiramisu~ the ultimate “pick me up”!
And ~pick you up~ it will!
Once you taste this delicate mousse cake made from Italian soft mascarpone cheese, laced with Kahlua and Coffee dipped lady fingers and a hint of rum, this dessert is the ultimate classic of classics.
The Tiramisu Recipe has been prepared so many different ways by so many different chefs over so many years, with interchanges of the types of liquor or cake being used.
Marble Pound Cake is one of those recipes that everyone needs to have in their “tried and true” folder.
There are probably hundreds, if not thousands of recipes for pound cake swirling the internet not to mention all the baking books over decades!
As I played around with several different names for this cake; such as Green Tea Chai Roulade, Green Tea Spiced Chai Cream Roll, Green Chai Tea Cake etc etc … I decided to do some research on just exactly what is “chai” anyway.
I am glad I did thus settling on the name Green Tea Masala Cake Roll; only to change the name again back to Green Tea Chai Cream Cake.
Now you may be thinking what is she talking about and who really cares?
Why do it one way?
When you can make Strawberry Shortcakes Two Ways!?
This is an example of “I just can’t decide which way is best!”
But I think it’s not really a matter of “best” as much as it is a matter of which way suits your event better?
If velvet had a taste, it would be these cupcakes.
I almost have no words.
Yes I do…..
Key Lime Cupcakes with Strawberry Lime Icing!
Maybe it’s the Florida air that has been sparking me lately, or perhaps just the the clarity that this new chapter has brought for me.
Whatever to attribute it, all I know is we are WINNING!
Excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard!
But seriously!? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes??
I ate way too many of these! But how could I resist?
There is nothing better than a surprise Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup hidden in a cupcake to make you go back for one more just to make sure it was not a dream!
