When I began this hobby, it was all about cupcakes. I had been completely awed before these too cute to be true cakes. And you know there is this frenzy all over the web (or should I say all over the world) for these fairy cakes. Well I had been completely engulfed in this mania and I still love those cuties.
But here I am, ready to write this second post and yet I am not writing about cupcakes. I will have plenty of time to go back and talk to you of some of my experiences with them. But those days are not about cupcakes. On the way I have discover a lot of different types of dessert that I want to bake, and as you will see in my to do list, I am not currently running out of ideas!
Here is a recipe my mom used to do when I was young. My sister and I loved it (what’s not to love, it must be more than your daily portion of sugar in one day!). Chocolate, marsmallows, coconut, graham. This is just too good! We call them “Carrés rochers” in french.
