Strawberry Mint Puff Pastry Cream Horns


The last few strawberries were left in my garden, so I need to make something with only a small amount of strawberries/filling.

Oreo Cupcakes with Mascarpone Icing


Cupcakes represent various possibilities of batter and icing combinations. If you add oreo cookies, I bet no one will say “no” to them. These Oreo Cupcakes with Mascarpone Icing were a huge hit.

Spinach and Cheese Pinwheels


I guess you don´t want any more cakes and you´re looking for something savory and small to make for New Year´s Eve.
