I love flowers, so I always look forward to creating the Shvuos tablescape.

When I visited Tali's new Global Flower Shop in Lakewood, I was taken by it's spacious, bright, and  airy garden-like decor. I knew then that I wanted to share that experience with you by setting up this table in the shop  in honor of Shvuos

Chocolate Cheese Trifles

choc cheese trifles

I made these cheese trifles in square acrylic boxes with lids made by Simcha Collection.  BP Print Group made a 1.75” label which was a perfect fit for the top of the box. The chocolate cream cheese nestled between the chocolate cake make these trifles go from delicious to decadent!!

Monogram Frozen Layer Cake

frozen layered cake

Light and refreshing, the perfect summer dessert.

It always amazes me how, with  a little creativity, the ordinary can be transformed into extraordinary.

In an article I wrote for Family First Magazine in the Fall of 2015, I featured this recipe as a log cake. It's a popular recipe that I have seen served at many parties since. I recently attended a party, hosted by a close friend of mine. Each course was a masterpiece. When I complimented her she said, "wait till you see what I made for dessert-even you will be impressed."

 Impressed I was! She had used a Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop and Stack to cut out individual portions of the ice cream log and placed them on plates garnished with dessert sauce. But the best is yet to come. She had personalized each portion with the initial of the new couple's last name by cutting it out of fruit strips. The results were so outstanding that I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Enjoy!
