Lemon Tartlets

These lemon tartlets are light and refreshing, yet contain over a pound and a half of butter. I was quite impressed that I was able to fit so much butter into such a seemingly light dessert. Less impressive, however, was the plate that I was able to smash to pieces while making these.

Lemon tart with sweet and crumbly pâte sucrée, white chocolate ganache, lemon cream, and candied lemon. Simply amazing, and EASY! Click to get the recipe.

I had grabbed some butter out of the freezer and placed it on a flowery porcelain plate.  I use the flowery porcelain plates since I can just throw them in the dishwasher, unlike most bowls. Also, they’re flowery.  That is a big plus.

Strawberry Curd Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

July 1st is Canada Day.

It’s kind of like Independence Day, but for Canada.

On a side note, did you know Canada came from the First Nations word “kananta” which means land?

We’re a creative bunch.

Well you know how lots of people have Independence Day parties? Where everything is red, white, and has blue sprinkles?

Well, Canadians can be patriotic too.

We use red sprinkles.

Canada Day cupcake: a lemon cupcake with strawberry curd and toasted meringue

Or fire. Fire is so much cooler than red sprinkles anyway. Yeah.

These cupcakes are perfect for Canada Day parties. A delicate, moist lemon cake with a balsamic strawberry curd and toasted meringue. Toasted with fire.
