Christmas Danish Puff

Sharing our families favorite Christmas morning breakfast. This has been our tradition for as long as I can remember and we look forward to it every year!

Danish Puff 
(recipe adapted from Betty Crocker 1969)

1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup all purpose flour
3 eggs
Sliced Almonds

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the 1/2 cup butter into 1 cup flour.  Sprinkle 2 T water over mixture and mix. Round into ball and divide in half.  On an ungreased baking sheet, pat each half into a strip 12x3 inches.  They should be about 3 inches apart.

Heat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup water to a rolling boil in a medium saucepan.  Remove from heat and quickly stir in almond extract and 1 cup flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Beat in eggs, all at once, until smooth and glossy.

Divide in half, spread each half evenly over each strip.  Bake about 60 minutes or until topping is crisp and brown. Cool.  Frost with glaze (below) and sprinkle generously with nuts.

Mix 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons butter (softened), 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1-2 tablespoons warm water until smooth.

A Merry Little Christmas Photo Shoot

This past week we did a fun little Holiday Photo shoot with my dad's '53 Ford red pick up truck and my good friend Kelly of Kelamelia Photography.  For the sweets we had chocolate sugar cookie sandwich cookies filled with buttercream and chocolate cupcakes with candied cranberries.  The cake was a tall tiered rustic cake with gold embellishment. 

We hope you all had a very blessed Christmas with your loved ones.  
Merry Christmas from Delicately Sweet Confections!

An Intimate Boat House Wedding

We had the privilege of creating the Cupcake Tower for Katie and Joe's intimate wedding on Lake Union this past August.  What a beautiful setting it was!  From the very beginning, Katie and Joe were so sweet to work with.  After our initial tasting, they stopped by our markets to try out more of our cupcake flavors.  In the end, they went with Red Velvet, Black and White, Coconut, Chocolate Peanut butter, Hummingbird and German Chocolate.  Below are photos of their beautiful day documented by the talented Sasha of Sasha Reiko Photography.

Congratulations to you both!

A Summer of Weddings

We had the privilege of creating cakes for some very special couples this summer. Each and everyone of them represented the couples in very unique ways.
.     .     .

Katie and Joe love the outdoors so, their venue was perfect for them. The College Club Boathouse on Lake Union. They wanted a variety of flavors for their guests to choose from, so they went with a cupcake tower with cake flavors of Red Velvet, Hummingbird, Chocolate Peanut butter, German Chocolate and Coconut.

For Skylar and Jaren's backyard wedding they went with a Rustic buttercream cake with our Hummingbird, Pina Colada and Lemon Blueberry flavors.  Along with the wedding cake we also created a dessert table display that had Mini Cupcakes, Leaf Sugar Cookies, Salted Caramel and Chocolate Oat Bars and our Mason Jar Fruit Crisps in Peach, Apple and Triple berry. 

The cake table for Antoinette and Ryan's wedding was atop an antique dresser complete with vintage bridal ware and pictures of the bride and groom.
