I think it’s time for me to admit that I’m not very good at posting updates on what I’ve been recently working on. I managed to snap a picture of this project that I made for my own daughter. She asked for a mermaid cake and decided to take a slightly different approach decorating it. Instead of scales or tons of fishtails, I hoped for it to be reminiscent of shells, coral and the light dancing through the reef. Of course, I forgot to take a photo of the cake inside. Strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and a layer of strawberry reduction, and a lemon cake with lemon curd and whipped frosting.

This cake was a flashback to the 90’s for me. Yes, I’m a Barbie girl, through and through.

I love making these six inch cakes. They are tall and make a big impact in a smaller more manageable size. People always ask about the frosting when they taste how buttery and smooth it is! This cake is covered in Swiss meringue buttercream which is significantly creamier and less sweet than typical American buttercream which is what you’ll normally find on cakes.

Some cute pink macarons I made for a baby shower. My only instructions for this order were to make them pink! I chose to make strawberry Macarons made with real strawberries filled with strawberry jam decorated with Ghirardelli white chocolate drizzle, and cherry almond macarons made with the most delicious French buttercream. I covered these in luster dust for a subtle hint of shimmer.

Coffee is not my favorite “flavor.” I’m more of a tea girl, myself and when I do drink coffee, I doctor it up with lots of cream, milk, vanilla and sweetener. With Saint Patrick’s Day around the corner and the gears in my brain churning out an endless stream of ideas, one that struck me as being worthy of exploration was a spiked coffee macaron. Baileys and Jameson whiskey was a fun taste testing experience and even more fun was combining them with this macaron that is packed with the intense flavor of real coffee.

How to: keep your macarons fresh.

I’ve had a few big batch orders lately so here are 3 ways to store any leftover macarons after your event to keep them tasting as fresh as they day you received them.

1. ROOM TEMPERATURE
Macarons are best served at room temperature and will keep out for 2-3 days. Ideal if you only have a few cookies left and plan to eat them right away.

2. REFRIGERATE
You can extend the freshness for up to a week by placing the cookies into the fridge in an airtight container. A great way to enjoy the last few cookies over a few days.

3. FREEZE
Macarons will keep in the freezer for up to a month. If you aren’t sure how long it will take you to go through any leftovers, this would be the best method for storing. Be sure to place them in an airtight container preferably made of glass. Grab a cookie or few at a time and allow to thaw for 5 minutes at room temperature while you prepare some hot tea to go with it. 😋

Let’s set the record straight so you too can sound like a sophisticated connoisseur of food 😉. Macaron is pronounced “mack-ah-ron” NOT “mack-a-roon”. Macaroons are those little coconut mound cookies, macarons are the little French cookies available soon at Upper Crust! If you’ve never had one, they are meringue cookies with almond flour folded into the batter and piped into shapes. They’re notoriously finicky but when prepared well have the distinct mark of spongy looking bottoms (known as feet) and smooth tops.

Why do I choose to make certain things and not others? I don’t have an arsenal of recipes that have been handed down to me nor do I like to make just any old recipe. If it involves premade mixes or is not a tried and true recipe that has been tested in my kitchen to the nth degree, it is not something I would be proud enough to present to you all. As the name of my business implies, I serve only the best! Coming soon, I will be introducing macarons. These little cookies are near and dear to me because there is nothing that says Upper Crust quite like these French delights.
