Almond Tea Cakes
— These little cakes are precious with varied shades of the same color. Try pink
for Valentine’s Day or a girl’s baby shower, or purple for Easter. The sky’s the
limit for this delicious Odense Almond Paste tea cake. There are a lot of steps
but well worth the effort!
— True Italian cannoli, with deep fried shells of dough and creamy ricotta or mascarpone
filling just can't be beat, when you have the time or a great bakery nearby. For
those times when you can't fry but the cannoli craving hits, try this recipe for
Cannoli Cakes. In less than an hour, you can have 12 small tender vanilla pound
cakes topped with a sweet, rich, creamy ricotta filling that is chock full of chocolate
chips and tasty salty pistachios. Believe me when I say "leave the fryer, take the
cannoli" Cannoli cake that is!
Cherry Baby Cakes — If you make the mini cakes, you'll have plenty to stash - unfrosted - in
the freezer in tightly covered containers for up to three months. Thaw and frost
when ready to eat more. Or use the batter to make about 16 full-size cupcakes.
Chocolate Cheesecake "Petit
Fours" — While many chocolate desserts are rich, this one is so rich that some years ago
we devised a special way of serving small portions; bake the cheesecake in rectangular
pans, then cut it into 1 1/2 inch squares (“Petit Fours”), topping each with a chocolate
coffee bean. Serve the “Petit Fours” on a large platter and let people help themselves
to as many as they want.
Chocolate Raspberry Cakes with
Raspberry Crème Icing
— Chocolate and raspberries are a perfect combination for Valentine’s Day. Canola
oil reduces the amount of saturated fat in this dessert and, along with buttermilk,
helps produce a cake crumb that’s tender and rich – like your love!
Mini Raspberry Cakes
— Chocolate Treasure Mini Raspberry Cakes have a perfect combination of flavors,
and you'll love the secret hidden delight inside these mini cakes. Perfect for entertaining.
