Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes | Domestic Batch

8.3.16

I love a good double take.  Baking something that warrants one (while also being tasty) is a great feeling.  Same goes for dress shopping.  Finding something you like is one thing, finding something you just keep coming back to and can’t NOT buy it, is another.  Whether it’s a beautiful dessert, or a killer maxi dress, there’s something about indulging in that pleasure that is so satisfying. There is such a striking quality about using blueberries in frosting, the natural color it brings is so bold it looks artificial. But it’s not! It’s beautiful, and after you bite into that cupcake and get that tart lemon curd, there’s no going back. I bought a maxi dress earlier this summer that I couldn’t stop thinking about. It hid in my closet for weeks.  I finally pulled it out when my husband and I saw Hamilton on Broadway last Wednesday.  As the first year of marriage is themed ‘Paper’ for gift inspiration, I gave Phil tickets to the show back in March, even though we actually wouldn’t be attending the show until July. (Tickets have been impossible to get. I bought them close to a year ago in preparation.) But in my defense I bought them for the day he proposed. The cupcakes and this dress both got me really excited, of course for totally different reasons.

Final Pistachio Cake 2

10.20.15

It’s still Monday somewhere, right? Like on the other side of the world it is still Monday and I am not behind in creating this post for the week.  I’m sure that is completely incorrect, but the truth is I am behind. Life. It’s really there and sometimes it just doesn’t create enough hours in the day to accomplish all you want to get done. But let’s move on, because I really made something great this past week and it was beautiful and delicious.  A cake! A pistachio cake no less!

It’s hot out. And I decided to experiment and create a summer tart. Something that makes you think of sunny skies when you eat it. I wanted to challenge myself to make white chocolate ganache, and I’m a huge fan of lemon. Pairing these things together made a dessert a sweet tooth can only dream of.

Things I learned: white chocolate ganache is very hard to make, I own many yellow pieces of clothing, and there are a lot of angles with a camera that can make you look pretty special. Luckily for you, none of those will show up here.

You’ll also receive double trouble this week.  Juxtaposed with this daytime sunshine tart, I also made a salted chocolate and caramel tart which I’ll post in a few days. Dark and sexy.

My White Chocolate Tart with Lemon Curd. Three separate elements combined into dessert-dom.
