Hello sweet and salty goodness! 

Where to Eat: Dominique Ansel Bakery, New York City

Thursday, 19 March 2015


It was a Monday evening and we were so thankful to make it to New York. We were due to fly in the same day Storm Juno was expected to hit. Flights were being cancelled left, right and centre but we were one of the last flights to make it through. Not only was it one of the smoothest flights ever but arriving in New York as a fresh blanket of snow was falling, with the streets uncharacteristically deserted, was a surprisingly magical moment.

Easter Egg Cookie Cake with Pink Buttercream

Is anyone else tempted by the oodles of Easter eggs out at the moment? Does chocolate taste better when it is in the shape of an egg? Either way, this is definitely chocolate season and I am certainly not complaining. Besides now I'm a food blogger I can buy lots of chocolate and call it work. Then I can eat it and call it research. It's win win! So here is the first Sweet Menu easter treat of the year - A giant Easter Egg Cookie Cake with Pink Buttercream. This chewy cookie is packed with chocolate chips and speckled Easter eggs and is topped with swirls of pink frosting. It is almost too pretty to eat but not quite. I know because I just ate a piece. Or two.

M&M Surprise Cupcakes with Rainbow Frosting

I think I am in love! These colourful M&M Surprise Cupcakes are just too cute with their bright rainbow frosting and sweet chocolate cake. Then there’s the outpouring of mini M&M’s that burst forth at the first bite. Have you seen those piñata cakes that have been flying around the internet at the moment? They’re the ones with candy hidden inside. Well, this is my special cupcake version. They are seriously delish and I just love that the hidden M&M’s really are a surprise. Just watch your friend’s faces when they bite into one of these beauties.
