Happy Wednesday!! I have an extra sweet feature post and bow-to for you today with Tiffany from Baking with Best. Tiffany is the talented baker and cookie designer sharing her darling character creations, and those 15 second how-to video clips that we all love to watch over and over again! I recently connected with her over on Instagram and have loved seeing her designs shaped with cookie cutters from the posh shop.
Hope you’re all having a great Thursday!! I have a few fabulous collaborations in the works that I can’t wait to tell you about, and I’m also happy to announce that I’ll be starting a new baking and party themed series here on posh.
As most of you know, my shop makes up a huge part of my company and I’m excited to bring more of that side of the business to the blog! With the new series I’ll be sharing some of the stylish products just in, chic baking & party inspo, features and more!

Add some festive flavor and color to your holiday treat lineup, with these bite sized and baked mini donuts. They’re dressed in a seasonal tart cranberry glaze and topped with a little unsweetened coconut for crunch and wintry appeal.
After traveling to NY last month and visiting Ladurée, I’ve become a little more obsessed with french macarons. Not gonna lie, I’ve been thinking about them quite often and regretting not bringing home more from the city. More than anything I think visiting Ladurée has inspired me to become better at making macarons. My mom’s birthday last weekend seemed like the perfect opportunity to try my hand at making them again, this time flavored like german chocolate cake, since that’s her favorite dessert.
Red Velvet. A classic decadence, that’s incredibly delicious when added to all things sweet! From cakes and cupcakes, to hot cocoa mix (from last year) and cookies, you can never go wrong with this flavor. I discovered this truth a few days back after adding it to my favorite treat, the no-bake! The idea came about after having success with the Maple pecan no-bakes I made around thanksgiving and here we go again! Let’s just say the result is dairy free, vegan deliciousness mixed with happy holiday cheer. They are that good! I mean, so good, you should really whip up a quick batch and share them with your loved ones, bring them to a Christmas Party, or, make more and throw them in the freezer, because have I mentioned yet how good they are frozen? Ok, enough rambling from me…you get the idea.
Happy Friday everyone and happy Summer Solstice!
To kick off the very first day of my favorite season, I’ve put together a collection of some of the summer worthy baking accessories available now in the Posh Etsy Boutique.
Why cookie cutters you might ask? Well they’re perfect for creating memorable party treats and come in variety of shapes and styles so you can tie in your themes and concepts. My favorite treat to make with the cutters is the sugar cookie, which has become a signature posh goodie that I serve at all my celebrations.
It’s Wednesday today and that means we have just a few days before the weekend. I’m looking forward to it because Cinco de Mayo is coming up this Sunday! How will you be celebrating? There’s supposed to be 70 degree temps this week in the NW, so we’ll take full advantage of the holiday and the sunshine, with an afternoon outdoors and a margarita or two. Margaritas just happen to be one of my favorite summer drinks and with the upcoming arrival of the holiday, I thought of a fun way to transform this refreshing beverage into treat form. Oh yes, I’ve taken my favorite sugar cookie recipe and jazzed it up with some fresh lime juice, sea salt and a dash of Patron. I also made the cookies using a dairy free butter, which was not the greatest idea because I ended up eating more of these cookies than I probably should have. They really are that good!
If ever there were a treat to represent posh, the macaron would be it. I just obsess over them! Not only for their delicious taste and texture, but also for the array of gorgeous hues they are available in. I seriously can’t think of a prettier dessert to serve for a special occasion and since my baby girls Spring in Paris themed 1st Birthday is coming up in a months time, adding them to the menu seemed like a no-brainer.
Superbowl Sunday is a week away and even though neither of the teams I was rooting for made it (Seahawks…sigh) I’m still looking forward to tuning in and enjoying a good game and some good food. How many of you plan to serve beer at your Superbowl party? Well after having such success with the Mini Champagne Cupcakes for NYE, I thought of an alternative way to serve beer at your Superbowl celebration…in the form of a cupcake. This probably doesn’t sound very appetizing to those of you who dislike beer but if you had one of these cupcakes in front of you perhaps you’d be intrigued enough to try it. I actually really enjoyed the cupcake myself and this is coming from a girl who doesn’t drink beer. My hubby however, that’s a different story. Like most men he loves beer which is where I got the inspiration to make the cupcake in the first place.
2012 is coming to a close and as it does, I take the time today to reflect and be grateful. What a posh year it has been, full of special moments like my first year of blogging, the welcoming of my 2nd daughter, sweet milestones, delicious treats, new friends and fabulous celebrations.
And as I think back and bid farewell, I do so with a toast in the form of a mini cupcake! A champagne cupcake with champagne swiss meringue buttercream that is.
