Vintage tea party

This year I hosted a vintage tea party for my birthday

I can't believe I don't have more pics to share of this lovely theme .... I made brownies, champagne glasses filled with fruit and cream, lemon and fudge bars, apple pie, egg muffins, red velvet cupcakes and little tartlets filled with white chocolate mousse and berries.

Freezing cakepops

Did you know you can freeze cakepops ? Before dipping them in candymelts that is.

The good thing about the freezing part is that whenever you have a get together with friends and want to bring something you can; thaw, dip and treat your hosts to some yummy cakepops.

Push Pops

Push Pops have to be the easiest treats for kids to share in school ever ! You can choose to make the cake & frosting yourself or be really lazy (read racing against time like any working mom).
Then just cut the cake, add frosting and sprinkles, fill the pushpop and repeat till you're done.

Dude #2 changed schools for the last 2 years so this was his goodbye treat for his classmates.

My all time favourite brownies

My all time favorite brownies (so far) come from the Hummingbird bakery book,

I'm not into chewy brownies but more the cakelike version and these fit the bill and are even better the day after ...

They also have a chocolate glaze recipy that i put extra mascarpone into and always double because it freezes and thaws like a dream (ready to serve from the ziploc) !

It's served up next to my dear friends green tea cupcakes (from the same book) that were also delicious, cupcakes and brownies make every creative get together more fun !
