Black Rose Entremet

It’s been a minute since I’ve last tackled an entremet, so I wanted to do another one, as I had a bunch of random components here and there that I knew I could use. I was making Turkish delight for Pinktober and realized that I had an entire piping bag of leftover ruby chocolate mousse…

Pineapple Cake Madeleines 2.0

I did attempt to make pineapple cake madeleines before, and while I was relatively happy with the batter portion, I felt like the pineapple was not where I wanted it to be. While whole chunks of pineapple reinforce the flavor of the fruit in the end product, it was not quite enough like the jammy…

Pretty in pink olive and rose cake

This was my 2nd/3rd take on the “Bomb-ass” Poosh cake. For those who were unaware, Poosh is Kourtney Kardashian’s company, and they did a collaboration with an olive oil cake bakery called Little House of Confections to bring to life this cute little pink olive oil cake, which they called the Poosh cake. The original…

Amethyst: lavender-honey gemstone cookies

It has been a minute since I made any of my gemstone cookies, so I felt like I needed to bring out a new flavor! I still have a lot of lavender from the last time I used it(yes, that was over a year ago), so I wanted to use some of it in this…

Chocolate-raspberry-rose tarts

I literally only came up with these because I had a coworker who was putting in her two-weeks, and I wanted to thank her properly for all of the hard work she had done! She specifically requested chocolate and raspberry, and I just happened to have made a batch of raspberry-rose jam, so I wanted…

Heigh-ho!: gemstone cookies

When I was coming up with these cookies, I wanted to do another take on the crystal cookies I did a while ago, but this time, doing a variety of colors inside of a singular cookie. I thought about the gem mines from Snow White, and I wanted to incorporate that element as well. My…

Gyakkou: a plated dessert

With this dessert, my aim was to create something that was delicate and light, while at the same time, having a pronounced flavor. So I opted for rose and almond for the flavor combination, being inspired by Persian baking, and me wanting to use Turkish delight and almond cake in some way or form. So…

Strawberries and cream Mont Blanc

I really wanted to make this Mont Blanc after seeing so many different kinds of them on my discover feed on Instagram. Traditionally, Mont Blanc is made with chestnuts, but I opted for a fresher, strawberry version instead, just to make it appropriate for the summer. So I went with a strawberry chiffon cake, a…

Citrine: lemon-poppyseed cookies with elderflower-lemon crystals

Continuing on with my crystal cookies, I wanted to do a lemon-poppyseed cookie, a flavor combination I love, and I also wanted to do lemon crystals, which will be similarly made to Turkish delight. Since Turkish delight does traditionally use a flower to flavor it, being rose, I wanted to use elderflower instead, and use…

Rose quartz: chocolate-Turkish delight cookies

Chocolate-Turkish delight ice cream is one of my absolute favorites. That and I love to make Turkish delight. I don’t know why. There’s something about how pretty they look that really appeals to me. That gem-like aesthetic. But since I know for a fact that this flavor combination works, I decided to take it from…

Andante: a chocolate and rose plated dessert

The word andante refers to a slow tempo, while the inspiration for the dessert came from the concept of falling in love. It should not be something to rush into, but rather, something you can take your time enjoying. For the dessert itself, we have a chocolate-coffee panna cotta, a rose-goat milk fluid gel, black…

Yogurt-peach-Turkish delight cake

This dessert came about because we had a fuck-ton of peaches in my fridge that we needed to get rid of. I love yogurt-semolina cake and I knew that it would have the perfect dryness in the crumb to hold up to the moisture in the peaches, so I went that route with baking them…

Blue skies, blue water mirror glaze cake

The inspiration for this cake was from a song by the same name. Go figure, that’s like half the shit I post here, and I love it because my music is so “out there” and not mainstream that you all would not know that unless I told you in the first place. Bitches. As you…

Semolina cake with chocolate-Turkish delight ice cream

Truth be told, this recipe was directly inspired by controversial MKR contestants, Sonya and Hadil, and a dish that they prepared during the Cole’s ice cream challenge, where they made chocolate-Turkish delight ice cream with semolina cake and pistachio biscuit. I know that several people hate them because they got ejected from the show for…
