Festive Javanais

Hi guys!

One of my absolute favorite things is Javanais. If you would present me a plate of lovely patisserie and there is a Javanais amongst them, I’d definitely pick him. Over and over again. Even is you ask me day after day. It’s my all-time favorite!

This Christmas won’t be all about typical Christmas desserts. I’d like to make some yummy festive desserts as well. This Javanais is no exception. I’ve added some gold to make it look festive enough for the Christmas dinner. What do you guys think?

Hi guys!

Santa is coming… I was so busy planning for Christmas I almost forgot my favorite part of St. Nicholas: Marzipan! How could I forget? Sure, my Christmas Desserts are important.

But I do want to take a day or two off to enjoy some homemade Marzipan Potatoes πŸ˜‰ It’s so easy to make you really don’t have a proper excuse.

Homemade Christmas Speculoos Cookies

Hi guys!

We’re getting closer and closer to Christmas and I promised you some Christmas recipes. This Homemade Speculoos recipe might be one of the best cookie recipes I’ve ever made. It’s the family recipe from my boyfriend. Now you know what they say, right? Whatever she makes, a grandma makes best! It’s the absolute truth ^^

If you can get your hands on some Christmas cookie cutters, you’ll have the cutest Christmas cookies ever! The Boyfriend made the Speculoos and I made them into Christmas ones πŸ˜‰ He said I could choose which cookie cutters I wanted to use so it was pretty obvious I went for the whole “cute Christmas” look πŸ˜‰

Raspberry Cheesecake Bites

Hi guys!

Dessert comes in all possible sizes. These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites might be the smallest ones I’ve ever made. But small desserts can be as yummy as large ones. In fact, these little cuties are like a kiss from an angel. Heaven on your tongue. Especially if you cover them in chocolate. Yummmm.

These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites could make the perfect dessert after a BBQ, whereΒ you’ve possibly ate too much to handle a ‘normal size’ cheesecake πŸ˜‰

Apple Cinnamon & Honey Cake

Hi guys!

I know the combination of apple and cinnamon does make us think of Autumn. But I don’t really care. I just love apples and cinnamon and I can eat it in any season I want. Right? πŸ™‚ Or is it really not done to make these kind of recipes in Summer?

Anyway, the boyfriend absolutely loved these little cakes filled with love πŸ˜‰ Now isn’t that the most important?

Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Okay, Belgium didn’t play very well last game against Italy. Let’s admit it: it was painful to watch. I know they tried, but they just weren’t good enough. Our Belgian Red Devils need to step up their game and I’m convinced these Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes will help them win tomorrow!

I shared these babies with you before, when Belgium played at the World Championship. I believe they’ll bring our team good luck since they did great then. So now they’ll have to be great tomorrow as well! These cupcakes are perfect to make with the kids. So let’s all bake and cheer for Belgium!
