Treat Petite April - Round Up
The theme for this month's Treat Petite was 'Hello Spring!' And Spring has certainly sprung with lots of delicious bakes and desserts. Easter was a big theme, as was chocolate, get ready to work up an appetite...
Fuss Free Flavours made these adorable Toffee Caramel Carob Mini Easter Cakes. I love the pretty pastel sugar butterflies that are nestled in the caramelised biscuit topping.
The More Than Occassional Baker made these very clever Passionfruit & Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate Eggs. A delicious no bake dessert for Easter.
The Gluten Free Alchemist made Apple, Cherry & Sultana Hot Cross Buns (Gluten Free). I love the flavour combination, it sounds divine and they are beautifully baked.
The Dream Baker made Easter Cupcakes, a unusual mixture of a lemon sponge a chocolate cream cheese icing - but Kerene confirms they were delicious!
My entry was Rhubarb & Ginger Meringue Tartlets, they were deliciously tangy and sweet and best of all I got to use my blowtorch on the meringues - great fun!
The More Than Occassional Baker's second entry were these super cute Cinnabunnies! Made with delicious cinnamon rolls shaped into Easter bunnies - so cute!
Made With Pink made these gorgeous Easter Egg Surprise Cakes. A little time consuming to make, but certainly worthwhile for such a pretty and surprising effect!
Tin & Thyme made these delightful Easter Nest Cupcakes, she put a twist on a Stork recipe and used cardamom sugar which sounds like an amazing flavour boost.
I'd Much Rather Bake Than... made Mini Galaxy Caramel Egg Brownies. Wow! Sheer chocolate indulgence!
Foodie Quine made this Leftover Easter Chocolate Fridge Cake, the perfect way to use up all that easter chocolate your house no doubt got over whelmed with. I know mine certainly did!
Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary made these stunning Lime Cupcakes with Lime Buttercream Frosting. Made all natural with lime juice and zest, they sound delicious!
Green Gourmet Giraffe made these very clever Chocolate Carrots. Made by dipping wafers into coloured chocolate and placing them in a bowl of biscuit 'dirt' for that authentic look!
Family Friends Food made these Pesach Pop Tarts, which are grain, gluten, egg and refined sugar free. Pesach is Passover, a Jewish festival when leavened foods such as flour are forbidden.
The More Then Occassional Baker also made these fruity Banana & Berry Lemon Muffins. They were made using a lemon extract paste - something I've not heard of before.
United Cakedom made these gorgeous Double Chocolate Strawberry Mini Tarts. Chocolate pastry filled with white chocolate ganache and topped with a strawberry - sounds divine!
My Treat Petite co-host Cakeyboi made Cheese & Spring O Muffins with a Sundried Tomato Swirl. Savoury muffins are so moreish, and I love the flavours used. I could eat several of these in one sitting!
The Dream Baker made these super cute Mini Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote. Fruit and cheesecake is such a delicious combination and they are beautifully presented!
Belleau Kitchen made these stunning Baileys Chocolate Luxe Rice Krispie Squares. I am a huge fan of Baileys and these are some tasty looking grown up Easter treats!
Speaking of things I'm a big fan of... Nutella is also on that list! The Gluten Free Alchemist made these gorgeous Nutella Trifles.
The More Then Occassional Baker made these fab Hot Cross Buns. It was her first time making them and they turned out great!
Herbs Spices and Tradition entered a recipe originally for Valentine's Day, but with it's pastel pink colours this Coconut Strawberry Pinwheel is perfect for spring too!
Family Friends Food made this vibrant Rhubarb, Ginger & Raspberry Jelly that I bet is so tangy and delicious! It's also vegan and sounds like a refreshing treat.
Kerry Cooks made these yummy looking Blueberry Scones. Perfectly baked - just look at how tall they are, and definitely crying out for some jam and cream!
A Pinch Of Salt made a Yoghurt Mango Smoothie, a taste of the exotic from India!
Caroline Makes... made Asparagus & Red Pepper Muffins. They are a Slimming World recipe and made with eggs, almost like a mini quiche without the pastry! They sound delicious!
