With cookie dough dyed that perfect shade of pale aqua, these little bonbons have surprises of their own—centers filled with your choice of chocolate, coconut, or toasty chopped nuts. And like that white satin ribbon that comes with every Tiffany box, these bonbons are finished with a glossy blue icing and and an elegant shower of white sprinkles. While no one needs any particular special occasion to give or receive a gift from Tiffany, we think that these cookies would be ideal engagement party nibbles.
'Jessie Oleson' on Serious Eats
CakeSpy, also known as Jessie Oleson, has a knack for sweet-ifying even the most savory—like this Grilled Cheesecake, where white bread is swapped out for pound cake and cheese comes in the form of cheesecake. And just like toasting bread with a little bit of butter makes for tasty toast, slices of pound cake crisped in butter make the cake that much better.
We've always suspected that CakeSpy aka Jessie Oleson had a little more than a thing for sweets, but after seeing her breakfast habits we can see that it's way bigger than we originally suspected. You see, this innocent looking Trompe L'oeil Bagel with Cream Cheese is, in fact, an illusion, a wolf in sheep's clothing, a doughnut sandwich masquerading as a healthy breakfast.
This book is brimming with the kind of stuff that makes Jessie's column so much fun: over-the-top sweets like Candy Salad and Cupcake Stuffed Cupcakes, and adorable illustrations of anthropomorphized treats, fluffy bunnies, and talking pineapples. Basically, it's everything we love about CakeSpy bound into a pint-sized pink package that's sure to inspire all sorts of baking adventures.
