Currants are perfect for a midday tart. Not too sweet, not too tart, not too heavy. I could go for a slice and a spot of tea right now to be honest.
Nothing says love like a heart shaped dessert delicately dusted with cocoa powder. Sadly, I fear cocoa powder as it seems inevitable that I will accidentally breathe some of it in when I take the first bite and then I'll cough all crazy and destroy everything. How I wish I could enjoy a dusted treat.
The one super ridiculous indulgence I allowed myself on my recent trip to Paris was a visit to Ladurée on the Champs-Élysées. It's spendy and extravagant and silly but how can I, in good conscience, run this site about cute foods and not eat at the mecca of cute food-dom? I only had a few macarons, and they were exquisite! I wish I could have packed my suitcase full of pink meringue goodies like this one but it wasn't to be.
Jelly shots aren't always super classy, and little cakes aren't always exciting. But when you can combine the two and get a little boozy jolt from your mini Boston cream pie cake, you've hit the snack jackpot! The snackpot?
Have you ever seen a cannoli so wee or so precious? I can get full heartedly behind this trend of micro desserts. Usually I only want one or two bites of a dessert and this way you can try a whole bunch of different nibbles and not feel all guilty about it.
