There is a seriously chic ice cream sandwich waiting for you at Francois Payard Patisserie. Glorious sorbet is wedged between two french macaron layers… uh-mazing. The coconut mango was my favorite. If you’re in need of a sophisticated treat on a hot summer day, Payard does not disappoint!
Happy Saturday! I’ve decided to start drawing a collection of my favorite things and what better way to begin than with my favorite cake. Behold the Icebox Cake from Billy’s Bakery. This thing is absolutely perfect… it’s not too heavy, not too sweet, and has just the right amount of chocolate-y goodness. Stay tuned for more favorite things… and an exciting surprise to be unveiled at the end of this month!
This past weekend was completely consumed by wedding planning… the DF and I met my mom for a full wedding weekend complete with florist meetings, cake tastings, and a second walk through of our venue!
There are so many little details that still need to be finalized, but we’re slowly working through all the big decisions. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, we’re doing a bunch of specialty cakes. After trying about eight different flavors and eating way too much of each, I felt sick to my stomach! But all of them were amazingly delicious =) The wedding is coming together before my eyes and December will be here before we know it!
Here’s to a sweet Tuesday… and lots and lots of wedding cake =)
P.S. – and a happy, happy birthday to the best DAD there is! I love you, Dad =)
