Welcome to my small little world of sweet treats. Passionate about baking cakes, cupcakes, truffles and eating them too! Having being exposed to such wonderful home-made treats from a very young age, I hope to bring across my passion and love for baking and creating new recipes through this site. All in all, this will focus on fun as well as healthy baking, decorating and everything else creative (could include my love for painting/sketching as well, so I could divert a little from my blog's title :)). Thanks for visiting!

Salted Caramel Ice cream at Marseille restaurant

Yes that's exactly what I remember enjoying the most at Marseille ( http://www.marseillenyc.com/ ) in NYC in addition to the Moroccan Lamb.

I wouldn't say that I'm a big fan of French cuisine, but I have to admit the food here really made me rethink. Alright the STINKY CHEESE festival was on and the taste of this cheese has left a real bad taste in my mouth. I had it in Portugal. No offence to the stinky cheese lovers out there, some people really enjoy it!

Coming back to the point, the potato leek soup was good. Another appetizer that I tried was the Gorgonzola Rissoto, I was a little scared to try it out because by then I was slightly overwhelmed with the cheese smell from the adjoining table. Little mental, you see! Still wanting to give it a try and I enjoyed the appetizer. The cheese wasn't so over powering, but the dish was almost good enough to be an entree. Quite filling and yummy!

 My MS Paint skills need some work!

What I really want to share with all of you is the Moroccan lamb, which was extremely tender and juicy and the oh so yummy dark chocolate tart with Salted Caramel Icecream. The tart was good but what blew me away was the ice cream that accompanied it. It was to die for. So much so that I have been inspired by this dish to come up with my very own creation of a salted caramel cake/cupcake recipe. Yum.
