You never need an excuse to bake something delicious…but celebrating monthly milestones is good enough for me!
We welcomed Elena Belle into our lives this February. This tiny but mighty spark of joy has changed our lives for the better. It is so exciting to see her grow, learn, and explore. Everyday there is something new to cherish.
To celebrate Elena, I’ve challenged myself to bake something new each month to reflect her monthly milestones. Be sure to check back each month to see what delicious treat is next!
(One) Chocolate Cookie Dough Mousse Bombe
Inspired by an episode from The Great British Bake Off, this decadent dessert is a chocolate lover’s dream! A center layer of light chocolate mousse surrounded by cookie dough and a bottom layer made of gooey brownie all topped with a generous layer of chocolate ganache…drool!
Recipe: Sprinkle Bakes (Bombe), Cooking Classy (Mousse)
(Two) Chocolate Frosted Donuts
Incredibly light with a dark chocolate frosting (and sprinkles of course) this classic pastry was quite a hit. Because they were so light you can’t even feel guilty knowing they were fried. Delicious on their own, but these donuts make a great addition to your morning cup of coffee.
Recipe: Life Made Sweeter
(Three) Cinnamon Rolls
A delicious classic that fills your kitchen with such an enticing smell. Soft pastry spiraled with gooey brown sugar and cinnamon filling is a great way to start (or end) the day. They only get better when smothered with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting.
