My Wedding — Sweet Treats

26 Jan

I am a sweets junkie… Because of this, my wedding guests will be forced to endure several sweet treats at my wedding (but don’t worry, of course I’ll serve some savory items).

Our caterer will be providing cupcakes —
white cake with lemon filling and cream cheese frosting
chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse and chocolate ganache
white chocolate cake with raspberry mousse and white chocolate buttercream
carrot cake

But I want to put my fingerprint on the menu (or treats) as well.

I’d originally posted about making mini-madeleine cookies, and dipping them in chocolate (mmmm) for the guests. Then, about a month ago (perhaps I am just too antsy for our new kitchen and fancy Electrolux appliances), I decided that I’d also like to provide my guests with another surprising treat — macaron cookies. Not to be confused with coconuty-macaroon cookies, macarons are delicious, delicate little French cookies that sandwich a filling that can range from quasi-savory to sweet.

I plan to make my first batch as soon as our new double oven is installed and ready to run.

My first test will be to make 3 flavors — Macaron Caramel Fleur de Sel (salted caramel), lemon macarons and red berry macarons.

If these babies are 1/4 as tasty as they are gorgeous, they will be at the reception!macaron_hazelnutwithsaltedcaramelmacaron_lemon_dailydeliciousmacaron_redberries1macarons

    I think these are so beautiful for a wedding…and delicious too! I’m thinking of doing a dessert bar and including some of these as well.

    I have macaron fever, too! I’d love to have a cookie bar to go along with our cake.

    You’ll have to let me know how you’re attempts work out!
