Bake-Off Entry

My work is having its annual bake-off competition next Tuesday and I need all the help I can get!  Last year I made Black Tie Mousse Cake...and didn't even place!!  It got a lot of compliments for its look...and it did taste good.  But it wasn't crowd serving friendly.
I need to be a lot more aggressive this year!!!
Here are some of the recipes I've finalized on so far.  Please vote on what sounds/looks the best for you.  Or... better yet, if you have a recipe I should add... please share!!

1) Orange Cream-Macadamia Torte 
I would attempt to make this in muffin tins so that I could serve it individually.

2) Mini Carrot-Spiced Cupcakes with Molasses Buttercream

3) Peanut Butter Truffle Tart

Let the voting begin!!


  1. CUPCAKES hands down - easy for serving, and the perfect size for NOM NOM NOMing

  2. you didn't place?! how rude! hehe.

    and i agree, cupcakes are always a winner ... like a stuffed cupcake of some sort! yummy :)

  3. Didn't know this blog was about torturing us with pictures of delicious deserts. :) I would vote for the tart and the cupcakes would be my 2nd choice.

  4. Mini carrot cake!

  5. Hey I'm on Weight Watchers....that being said, go with the cupcakes.

  6. I would have to say the cup cakes as well coz it's "crowd serving friendly"!!

  7. anything in a muffin tin. easy to walk around with at big functions :)
