The stuff dreams are made of…

4 Apr

I’ve noticed that alot of people tend to brag that they dream in color. So what about those of us that dream in cupcakes? Or cheesecakes? I had a dream the other night that consisted of the usual: people I recognized and some I didn’t, scenery I’d visited before and places I could only draft up in my imagination, conversations, interactions, so on and so forth. But oddly enough, the only part of that dream that stuck out was a slice of cheesecake on a table in the foreground of one of that dreams’ scenes. When I woke up and found that cheesecake was no where to be found, I made it. Yup. That’s just what NelleBelle does.

…and yes, they’re on the menu 🙂 .

These are mini cheesecakes ( or mini cheese(cup)cakes as I like to call them) topped with glazed cherries and baked atop a graham cracker crust. Don’t like cherries? How about glazed strawberries? Or blueberries? Or peaches? Or apples? Don’t like graham cracker crust? How about an Oreo cookie bottom? NelleBelle’s Confections can do all that for you! Just trying to help your dreams come true, too 🙂

Until next time, have a delicious day!

A new spin!

26 Mar

Classic (noun): a thing of simple, elegant, and long-lasting style

‘Classic’ is a word used very frequently around NelleBelle’s Confections. It’s used to described the standards set before and the standards that currently are (and always will be) upheld. Many cakes, cupcakes, cookies, etc. keep in line with these standards laid out before us by the cake gods (yes, they exist) as far as appearance and taste. But how bad could a spin on a classic really be?

Pineapple upside-down cake: a classic dessert (There goes that word of the moment, again). Usually done in a bundt pan and flipped over upon presentation, pineapple upside down cake is long-lived and loved by many. It’s drenched in a wonderous sticky glaze that not only enhances the flavor of each slice but adds to its delicious appearance…but appearances can be deceiving.

What if pineapple upside-down cake wasn’t upside down?

What is the pineapple never came right-side up?

What if had fluffy frosting instead of a thick coat of glaze?

What if the bundt pan got tossed out a window and replaced with a cupcake pan?

NelleBelle’s been thinking (and thereby creating 🙂 ). I do believe a spin on this classic is in order.

Isn’t she lovely? A sweet, moist, pineapple-adorned cake topped with whipped pineapple frosting served conveniently in a  danty cupcake liner. Oh wait, how is that pineapple upside down cake? This doesn’t seem to be enough. Why, whatever shall I do? *swoons*

Yay! You saw that one coming, didn’t you? A brown sugar and sweet cream glazed pineapple slice lays the foundation for this heavenly delight. Couldn’t put a spin on such a marvelous creation that it loses the essence of itself. That’s just confectionary treason and unacceptable behavior here at NelleBelle’s Confections. This bakery has got standards, you know 🙂 .

Until next time, have a delicious day!
