Lolipop Pie! It's True!
Wednesday, July 29, 2009
I know someone (to remain nameless) who grew up on the plains of Saskatchewan . He grew up eating pie every day. His Grandmother would make ten pies every morning to feed the farm hands! This person can eat a whole pie in one sitting....if you let him! This person married someone who for the life of her can not make a decent pie crust to save her life! She does make good crisps however.
When the excellent crisp maker saw these pie lolipops on Luxirare's
Blog. She thought fantastic, I can make these! I can cheat and buy premade pie dough and impress said pie loving man with my ingenuity . It may stop him eating a whole pie in one sitting as he can just pop one of these in his mouth and trick his mind into believing it was huge.
Then the excellent crisp maker had another idea. These would make fabulous wedding favors for a chic country wedding! " Oh, yes," she thought,"Tres Original!" because everything sounds better in French and Italian.
The bride could premake her favorite fillings and store them in cute jars with lables....or cheat and buy premade pie fillings. Although, the excellent crisp maker would NEVER condone cheating.
Just gather up your favorite pie ingredients.
Cut out your pie dough with cookie cutters.
Place a teaspoon of your favorite pie filling.
Add lolipop stick
Press the edges down fancy like. "Tres Bella!" combining two foreign languages together makes one sound even more cosmopolitan! The trick apparently for a really nice flaky crust is lots, LOTS of egg wash.
Pumkin pie lolipop!
Blackberry! Personal favorite.
Apple for the purist.
So cutely wrapped and sealed. I would just add ribbon and a personalized tag for a wedding favor. Your guests could choose the pie flavour they prefer. They freeze and refrigerate well so can be made in advance of your wedding. Luxirare
carries them around in her purse when she wants a little something sweet!
Excellent crisp maker LOVES them and is making them for her kids lunches in the fall but shhh may cheat! So excellent for a wedding favor idea. Don't you think?

Wedding Favors: Cocoa Mosaic
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
I love chocolate! Especially gourmet chocolates with unique flavors. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Cocoa Mosaic
an artisan chocolate and truffle company from Toronto. Jackie the owner trained in Switzerland to make truffles and chocolate creations by hand using blends of Belgian chocolate and other natural ingredients.Her chocolates contain no preservatives. She also makes custom chocolates that I think make great wedding favors. She can customize the chocolates with your monogram, design or picture. Custom orders should be placed as early as possible, a minimum of one month in advance. Edible favors are so much more enjoyable than salt and pepper shakers! These favors won't be left on the table....they are that delicious !
Sweet little boxed chocolates with exotic flavors like matcha
green tea, Italian espresso or vanilla bean. There are many more flavors. Jackie
is also working on a line of single origin chocolates that I look forward to trying in the future.
Here is an example of one of Cocoa Mosaic's
custom wedding favor orders. Aren't they beautiful and elegant!
Remember the movie Chocolat
with Johnny Depp
and Juliette Binoche
.....one of my favorite movies by the way....remember that big vat of melting chocolate ? I had dreams I was swimming in that vat of chocolate for weeks after watching
that movie! I have a feeling I will be dreaming Cocoa Mosaic
