Weekly Sweet


As you know, I am back in the craziness of school…my senior year of college, actually! I’ve been trying to stay strong with my blogging, and one thing that is helping a lot is establishing more of a posting routine. Thursday Love Lists have been going on for THIRTY weeks now, and I think it’s time to introduce some more weekly features–so today is the first delicious day of Weekly Sweet!

I worked in a wonderful cupcake bakery over the summer that sparked my love of desserts that are equally tasty and beautiful, and I’m a longtime fan of thinking outside the box when it comes to sweet wedding treats. So once a week (not necessarily on Fridays), I’m going to post a pretty dessert, along with an idea for a wedding theme that I think would go with it. Sound fun? Here we go! :)

{Apple Cider Float}

Enjoy it at: A romantic and cozy autumn wedding, like the one from Wednesday’s inspiration board, or the inspiration board I posted on Hey Gorgeous yesterday! Can you even imagine how delicious this would be? I’m addicted to apple cider in the fall, so I know I’ll be trying this! Find the recipe on Every Day with Rachael Ray.

Have a sweet weekend!



P.S. Please feel free to share your favorite baking blogs with me! :)
