Coconut Macaroon Tart With Passion Fruit Cream

Coconut Macaroon Tart With Passion Fruit Cream | From SugarHero.com

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Coconut tarts filled with passion fruit creeaaam– these are a few of my faaaavorite things! Real talk: I like raindrops just fine, am neutral on roses, am allergic to cats, lust after copper kettles, and I’ve never owned a woolen mitten…

Malted Milk Chocolate Brownies

Malted Milk Chocolate Brownies | From SugarHero.com

So remember how just a few days ago, I was like, “We’re fancy people! We deserve classy desserts and gold-plated cutlery and our own butlers and small fluffy dogs wearing sweaters!” and then I said a lot of foolish things about elevating Easter desserts beyond just colorful kid’s stuff?

Faberge Egg Sugar Cookies | From SugarHero.com

Look, I’m not saying the Easter Bunny is doing a terrible job. It can’t be easy to hit all those houses and fill all those baskets without the help of any reindeer whatsoever. I’m sympathetic. But I do think he could try a little harder. Plastic eggs? Filled with cheap jelly beans? Hollow bunnies made…

Rainbow in the Clouds Cake | From SugarHero.com

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’ve done the green foods thing. We’ve done the other green foods thing. We don’t mess with corned beef, potatoes, or cabbage of any sort around here, so the only thing left to do to get us in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit must be a rainbow dessert! Okay, fine, if…

Pistachio Orange Cake

Pistachio Orange Cake | From SugarHero.com

Because it’s almost spring. Because St. Patrick’s Day is next week. Because we could all use a mid-week pick-me-up. Because I can’t stop buying bags of pistachios. Because you never really need a reason for a beautiful layer cake. For these and many more reasons, say hello to Pistachio Orange Cake! I know layer cakes…
