Mini New York Cheesecake

With this, I'm finally done with our mini dessert menu.  It's been a long time of testing not only recipes but bakeware.  A lot of buying and returning bakeware in order to find some that would work for our desserts.  I'll have our official menu up in a couple of days after The Pen takes my Word document menu and transforms it into a masterpiece. 

In the meantime, here are my Mini New York Cheesecakes.  They are perfect for one or two bites.   You can share them if you want but I'm going to bet that you won't want to. 
These little cheesecakes are good.  In fact, I'm eating one as I write this.  Of course, I just shove it all in my mouth in one big bite and let all the creamy goodness just swirl all over my tasetbuds. 

I'm going to need another.

Audrey's First Birthday

Imaginate is very close to fully launching.  When the three of us first sat down and came up with the idea for Imaginate, we were shooting to fully launch our company on Audrey's first birthday because we'd be able to fully showcase all the services we were capable of providing.  Audrey's birthday party was last Saturday.  Although, we aren't exactly ready to launch just yet, we are very close to it.  Meanwhile, here are some pictures from the birthday.

We had a great time at the event.  I made mini vanilla bean cupcakes with a light pink buttercream frosting, mini cake donuts dunked in both a white and pink icing and sprinkled with rainbow sprinkles, mini cake cones, and mini fruit tarts.  Everything turned out great.  People seemed to really enjoy the desserts as well as the picket fences, which we are making available for rental if you'd like to use them in your event.

Just want to thank Mimi and Andrew Ahn for letting us use their firstborn's birthday to showcase our products.

Our First Dessert Order

So we got our first dessert order from Trini for her father's birthday.  I hope her family enjoys it. 

I made some Mini Cheesecake Brownie Bites as well as some Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting. 

The Mini Cheesecake Brownies came out a lot better this time thanks to a new mold I purchased. 
I'm a lot happier with the look of them now.

Just wanted to say "Thank you" to Trini for allowing us to provide her family with some desserts and for being our first customer for the dessert portion of our company.

Mini Lemon Madeleines

Today, I made some Mini Lemon Madeleines.  Whipping egg yolks by hand until ribbon stage in a hot kitchen was not fun by any stretch of the imagination.  But all that matters is the end result.  I also took about half of them and dipped them in some dark chocolate.  I personally prefer the chocolate dipped madeleines but some like it plain or with just a touch of powdered sugar dusted on top.

Mini Donuts

These mini donuts came about because I tried making some black and white cookies earlier but wasn't happy with the presentation of the product.  However, the taste was great so I decided to use the same recipe but in a different format.  Long story short, mini donuts.  They came out great.  I'm really happy with the taste, look and portability of these.

Mini Caramel Apples

Took another classic treat and miniaturized it.  They are a perfect bite-sized dessert for when you room for just one more bite.  The crunchy texture of the apple goes well with the rich sweet flavor of the caramel.  The great thing about these is that you can put whatever toppings you want.

Hope you get a chance to taste them.
