Dark Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy cupcake, you’ve come to the right place. Deep, dark chocolate cupcakes are the perfect vehicle for my whipped nutella frosting. I dare you to stop at just one. You’ll want to eat the frosting with a spoon. These are super simple to make. I threw the batter together while…

Amaretto Whipped Cream

Disaronno is my favorite alcohol of all time, so it’s an absolute wonder why I never talk about it here on The Rose Table. Amaretto is almond-flavored, which is the perfect complement to so many desserts. This would be delicious with a brownie, a chocolate tart, or so many different ice creams. I made this…

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Some sundaes are worth melting for! This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake…

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway Hot Fudge Sundae

Some desserts are worth melting for! You forget how great a hot fudge sundae can be. This is anything but ordinary. When I saw Ice Queen sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles, I knew I had to serve an ice cream sundae at my Frozen dinner party. I added slivered almonds and amaretto whipped cream as an…

Roasted Banana Popsicles

Get ready for The Year of the Pop. I got a Zoku popsicle mold as a birthday gift a couple of years ago and have madeΒ precious few pops but that’s about to change. I often crave things I’ve never had and this is one of them. Never in my life have I eaten a roasted…

Pumpkin Oreo Pie with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

I have a confession, one we’ve never discussed before. I don’t really care for pie. I’ve met plenty of pies that I like but it’s not my favorite. I’ll take cake any day of the week over a slice of pie. My problem is the crust. Everyone talks about how to get a flaky crust…

Tarte Noir

This dessert is dark, sexy, and packed with dark chocolate flavor. So dark in fact that I almost named this Heart of Darkness Tart, but that seemed a bit dramatic (even for me). Paired with a minty blackberry sauce and fluffy whipped cream, this tart is sure to be a hit at your next get…

Chambord Brownies

Can a dessert be sexy? If so, this is a sexy brownie. They’re rich, fudge-y, and have a deep, dark chocolate flavor. They also come together in an absolute snap since you don’t need softened butter. Not that I tried the batter, but it’s delicious too. (Yes, I’m that person. No I do not appear…

Lemon Blueberry Cake

This really might be one of the most special cakes I’ve ever made. Tart with freshly squeezed lemon juice and bursting with blueberries, this layer cake smells like pure heaven. You don’t have to frost this to be a “naked cake” like I did here but the frosting was gorgeous as-is and I didn’t want…

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cake

It might surprise some of my loyal readers that I love cookies ‘n’ cream, since I hardly promote processed cookies. What can I say? I’m a sucker for cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream! I decided to turn my love of cookies ‘n’ cream into a cake. Here’s what I came up with: This is a…

Diner en Blanc Cake

Looking for a snow-white cake to take to Le Diner en Blanc? You’ve come to the right place! This is a delicious white cake worthy of any gathering but is particularly appropriate for the glamorous pop-up picnic around the globe best known for the fact that its guests wear head-to-toe white ensembles. Attendees take their…

Stracciatella Ice Cream

I’ve hardly published any ice cream recipes here on The Rose Table, which is pretty shocking since almost anyone who frequents my house eats homemade ice cream all the time. I’ll tell you why: I always have the ingredients on hand and I keep my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer so it’s literally…
