Baked Mango Puff Pastry Squares

Super simple, minimalistic yet delicious dessert with baked mango slices on puffy pastry bottom, served on it’s own or with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The cinnamony sweet mango slices look almost like a maple leaf in fall and I think it makes an excellent dessert enjoyed warm on a chilly evening in October (well, I can only imagine it would while I still […]

Luau-Tiki Chocolate Cake

Luau-Tiki theme is a fun cake decorating project. I had the honour of making this cake to a Tiki themed birthday party last weekend and while I rarely do fondant covered cakes I truly had fun making this one! This cake is a 7 layer chocolate cake and quite a time consuming project, but you can cut the project into smaller parts to divide the time. You can bake […]

Lingonberry Pie
Pies & Tarts

Lingonberry Pie

For me lingonberry pie is a symbol of autumn just like pumpkin pie is in North America. Lingonberries are wild Northern berries that grow in green woody stems. I used to pick them yearly – lingonberry is the most common shrug in Finland, it flowers in June-July and is usually picked in late August to early October. Lingonberries have a slightly sweet and sour taste similar to cranberries. […]

Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Churn churn and we got a winner! Cookies and Cream is my new favourite homemade ice cream, it’s creamy and cookielicious. It’s also easily scoopable after freezing, our freezer tends to make all ice cream even store bought hard as ice but this one just needed a couple minutes on the counter and it was perfectly scoopable. Scoop into ice cream cones and top with half of […]

White Chocolate Cranberry Mousse

Sweet meets tangy in this delightful milky combination that makes a wonderful Midsummer dessert! Creamy white chocolate mousse with natural cranberry powder served in white chocolate cranberry cups.
