Father's Day Boxes and Now Accepting Credit Cards...

I've finally decided to enter the modern age! Drum roll please...... Très Sucré is now accepting Credit Cards. I have gotten a lot of requests from customers, so there you have it. Voilà! And now on to the fun stuff.

I had so much fun making these little boxes. Especially since I was making all of hubby's favorites. He was hovering over my shoulder the entire time, drooling. He loved all of the treats and I hope all of your dads did too! Thank you!

Inside the boxes: Moravian Kolache, Dad Cupcakes, Little Lemon Delights, Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

Pink Flamingos and I'm Going Coconuts.

A friend of mine called and asked me to make her some Pink Flamingo themed cupcakes. I thought it sounded easy enough. I figured I would find some cute mini flamingo cookie cutter and make some little sugar cookies to go on top. After about 5 hours of searching on the Internet and calling various stores, I realized that mini flamingo cookie cutters do not exist. I found mini hot dog cutters, and mini lighthouse cutters, and basically any and everything else mini - but NO flamingos. Then I had a stroke of inspiration and decided to make them out of chocolate. They turned out so cute (in my opinion:). The beaks are made out of licorice, and the bodies out of pink chocolate. The cupcakes were dark chocolate with cream filling. The pink and green cakes were carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and vanilla with fresh strawberry frosting. Mmm mmm good! And I do need to note that until this week carrot cupcakes were my nemesis. The last time I tried to make them, which was well over a year ago, they sank into a soggy mess. But alas, I got my mom's recipe and they turned out really good. Nemesis - Conquered! Merci, mom!

This same friend also asked for something chocolaty and gooey. So I made her some chocolate dipped coconut macaroons.

Sufficeth to say, I am not the most computer savvy woman on the block. We purchased a new camera about 4 months ago, and I have just today figured out how to download pictures from it. So here are some photos from a couple of recent events. Still waiting on some pictures from the Domestic Goddess event I recently did (those will be professional photos:). Can't wait for you guys to see those. But in the meantime, these will have to do!

Father's Day.

In honor of my hubby I have decided to offer a father's day treat box filled with his favorite desserts. If you would like to order one, please let me know ASAP so I can plan accordingly. The boxes will be available for pick-up on Saturday June 20th. They will contain:

2 Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons
2 Moravian Kolache with Cream Cheese Filling
2 Chocolate Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Filling and Chocolate Ganache Glaze, and they will say "Dad" on them.

The cost will be $8 per box. If you can get your orders in to by June 17th that would be ideal. Happy June!
