Christmas Time @ Sweet & Saucy Shop

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Well time sure does fly when you are busy with two shops and have a new baby!  I really can’t believe it is Christmas time already, but I have to say that I am thrilled!  I absolutely love this time of year for so many reasons and I am thrilled to share it with my little Blake this year! Our team at Sweet & Saucy Shop have had some fun coming up with some new (and of course some tried and true) holiday desserts and we hope you love them as much as we do!  All prices will be up on the website and of course you can always call, email, pop into the shop to place your order for holiday treats! First up my favorite…gold sugar and mini gingerbread men!

I always love me some good character pops!

I am definitely into washi tape this year and love adding it to anything for an extra pop of color!

Christmas sugar cookies and mason jar desserts are always popular among our clients!

We love our new macaron boxes!  We have both sizes in kraft and red and you pick what kind of washi tape you want to add to it!  The large fits 8-9 macarons and the same 4-5 macarons.

Some new delicious macaron flavors have been coming out of Sweet & Saucy thanks to Jess!  The flavors we have daily (until they get sold out) are Mexian Hot Chocolate, Pistachio, Salted Caramel, Eggnog, and White Chocolate Peppermint!

We can add these cute fondant accents to the mini or regular size cupcakes for you!

We also have gift baskets we can fill macarons, peppermint brownies, sugar cookies, cake pops, and everything else you love of ours!  We can ship baskets too

We are so excited to also be a part of a fun pop up shop this weekend in Santa Ana so if you are in the area definitely stop by as some of the top socal wedding vendors will be making and selling Christmas stuff!  Here is a sneak peek at an adorable new product we will be selling at both bakeries and the pop up shop…Santa & his sleigh of cake pops!

**All pricing is on the website…check it out here!

Last Batch of Christmas Sugar Cookies

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I would love to hear which one you like the best!

 

Christmas Sugar Cookies & Cupcakes…Plus a Recipe

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Well, the holidays have definitely kept me busy, so sorry for the lack of posts this last week!  Thank you all for your sweet comments about the cookies.  To answer many of your questions…I achieved the shimmered look by mixing a small amount of lemon extract and luster dust (whatever color you want) and then painted it on my cookie that was already iced with dried royal icing.  The luster dust is edible of course and gives the cookies such a dramatic and rich look.  Hope that helps! 

So this post is going to be a mix of many recent orders and events that I have done…I hope you enjoy the photos!  First up are adorable little snowmen made out of fondant.  I used them as a topper for a Christmas cupcake order that I had. There were 78 of these little snowmen and it took quite a while to finish them all up, not to mention baking the cupcakes, frosting, and individually packaging them…

The photos from the event didn’t turn out too good, so sorry for the lack of photos of the finished product. Next up are some more photos of Christmas sugar cookies that my sister designed, plus a present cake I did for a recent birthday order.

Last, but not least are some photos of a recent kid’s cooking class I taught at Prep Kitchen Essentials.  The theme was Christmas cookies and as you can see from the photos, the kids had a great time baking and decorating them!

So if you have never made Cinnamon & Sugar Palmiers before you have to try them out.  They are so easy and soooo delicious!  Hope you enjoy the recipe!  Merry Christmas!

 

Cinnamon Sugar Palmiers
Makes 30-36 cookies

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 (17 1/4 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease two baking sheets. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Unfold one of the puff pastry sheets on a clean surface. Sprinkle evenly with a quarter of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Gently press the cinnamon sugar into the pastry. Flip the pastry over and repeat. Roll up each long side of the puff pastry jellyroll fashion to meet in the middle, forming the V shaped Palmiers. Tightly wrap and place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Repeat with the other sheet of dough. Remove the first sheet from the freezer and slice the log into 18 1/2-inch thick slices. Place each slice two inches apart on one of the cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the other log. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Flip each of the pastries over and continue to bake for 7-8 minutes, or until crisp and pale golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
