I found these beautiful pink biscuits while shopping in a boutique chocolate shop and I had to get them. They're so pretty! I was told that French people dunk them in their champagne for a sweet treat. How wonderful is that? Although I haven't tried them with champagne yet, I was inspired to make a rose lychee tiramisu right when I saw these lovely pink biscuits.
Rose lychee is a flavor combination that I fell in love with when I tried Pierre Herme's Ispahan macarons. I was really excited to adapt it into a tiramisu version. I've never made tiramisu before and through my internet search, it doesn't look like anyone else have made a rose lychee tiramisu before either! IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I CAN BE THE FIRST ONE EVER? This thought alone was very exciting :) Even if I'm not, I'm really proud of how it turned out. I made changes to a matcha tiramisu recipe that I found and the result was amazing!
James also requested me to make the matcha tiramisu :) My family really enjoyed it at our New Year's celebration last weekend and that made me really happy. I can't wait to make it again and test out a few tweaks to my recipe. I will share it once I have the chance to test it out a few more times so stay tuned!

I finally did it! I started my own YouTube channel! I'm so excited with this new project. I've been wanting to do this for a while now. I love blogging and this channel is going to make it even more fun. I'll be able to show you my DIY projects and recipes in video format. They're going to be a lot easier to follow than a series of step-by-step photos.
I'm aiming to have a video up every Friday but I'm still finding my way around video editing and YouTube so please forgive me if it's not consistent at first :)
I hope to see you there and please subscribe to get my video updates. Thank you so much for inspiring me to be more creative! Happy Friday!

Hello all! I've missed you! James and I have been working hard renovating our new place for the past few months and we're so excited that we're finally moved in...just in time for the holidays :) Here's a little sneak peek of our labor of love. I can't wait to share more! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones. See you in 2014!

I piped small circles of macaron batter for the eyeballs once the macaron rounds have set. It gives it a nice raised texture once they are baked. I painted the outer edges with edible Pearl Dust mixed with a little lemon extract and filled them in with white chocolate. I then dotted each eyeball with milk chocolate. I drew the rest of the details with edible marker :)
The birthday girl loved her minion macarons so I was very happy!

Just wanted to pop in and share this fun birthday cake I made last week :) It's a rich devil's food cake topped with chocolate ganache and raspberry macarons. I love that each serving has it's own macaron!
Btw, these pictures were taken with my iPhone after a late night of baking so the lighting isn't ideal...hehe
