Late St. Patrick's Day Brazilian Truffles...

Those I made for that day, just I'm posting very late. It's brigadeiro inside :) but a sweeter one, I got to make a recipe less sweet which is much better and tasteful.
And I am really really trying to learn more about photography because my pictures suck :P I just need to get buy the right supplies and my husband will teach me some techniques and I will try to remember what I learned about photo in college. What a shame! :( well, I didn't need to take good pictures before, my little digital was enough for travel pics. :P

Brazilian Candies for Baby Shower...

I made those for Stephen and Michelle's baby shower. The ones with chocolate jimmies are brigadeiros (let's say Brazilian chocolate truffles) and the ones with white nonpareils are beijinho (made with coconut), humm I read somewhere they translated as coconut kisses.

A little close up of the inside of the brigadeiro, yummy!:

And here the beijinho:

Ready to go:

St. Patrick's Mini Cake...

I made this last week. It is a chocolate cake with a strawberry mousse filling and decorated with MMF. And like the previous cake, no pictures of the inside :( It was a really nice contrast. It also looks like a hat :P

Flowers Mini Cake...

This is a chocolate cake with strawberry mousse filling. Unfortunately, they didn't get a picture of the inside for me :( lol but it's ok. It almost looks like a hat :P and it would make a pretty hat, in fact.
