6 Ghoulish Treats from PSNT

Hey guys! Happy Second Day of Halloween! Who would love to get cupcakes in your treat bag for Halloween? I’d like to point out how messy and impractical that would be before announcing that I kind of did just that! Sans the bag of course.  Petite Sweets n Treats came through!

     I talked to the lovely Francine over at Petite Sweets N Treats to make us some JNJ approved Halloween treats! I didn’t give her any specifications, other than “We need Halloween cupcakes- have fun!”. This post really is a surprise for me too, I had no idea what I was getting into by asking a baker to whip us up this batch of cakes!

    I’m not sure how much commentary these need, since they’re delicious and just the right amount of creepy. If you want to use these amazing cakes as a springboard for your own creepy cakes, be sure to share it with us and tag @java_and_jeans on instagram so we can drool too!     

     I threw these into a gallery to inspire you, and maybe tempt you to try your hand at cake decorating. Just looking at these when I picked these up made me want to see what I could do if I make my own treats. 

 

   Guys, in true Petite Sweets n Treats Fashion, these are delicious! Pardon the lack of cutting pictures of Pennywise. That’s a surprise for someone at work and I wanted to wait to dig in. I hope these are able to inspire you this Halloween to try something new and adventurous with your desserts.

      Who knows, maybe you can make them for the movie night coming up! Just a quick reminder, I’ll be hosting two movies on October 30th at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM EST. Showtime will end at about 11:00 PM EST. The link is here!

Branded; Petite Sweets n Sweets worked some magic!

 Guys, I have to admit, I’m more than a little hyped up and this amazing little bakery may or may not be to blame. I found the lovely ladies over at Petite Sweets n Treats by complete chance, and as luck would have it that fell in line with our big move! Cake is always welcome, but more so in times of stress!

     We haven’t had a shortage of treats since discovering them, and for good reason- it’s delicious. I’ve been trying to push her some new customers since tasting her delectable lemon cupcakes… and the vanilla unicorn cupcake… and the cookie one…

   I need to get to point- I’m starting to ignite my sweet tooth with all this talk of goodies. I’ll be giving a tour of the new digs soon, since I’ve mentioned it all over instagram and facebook. It’s kind of a huge point of pride at this point, and will mark the start of my forray into the marvelous world of beauty blogging. I just bought my first Coloupop Palette and I’m so excited to play with it, and my Naked Palette! (once they get here!) 

    Wow- all this caffeine is bad for my concentration. 

     The lovely ladies over at my new favorite treats place, are a family. The two entrepreneurs are Elyssa and Makena, who infected their talented Mom with the cooking bug. These three really work some magic together! They make some of the most unique flavors I’ve ever seen, and are always experimenting with new sorts of tastes. I feel privileged to be a proud Guinea pig, and I can’t wait for the next adventure in flavor.

    I commissioned her to make us a cake for the blog, and the upcoming [redacted] that I’m working on. I’m a little worried to say too much about that, honestly. Suffice to say it’s been a lot of work to plan for. The cake in question, comes in two attempts. This one, which I adore, was not quite up to their vision, and so she’ll be making a second attempt, which I’ll reveal a little later.

    This cake is pure magic, I kid you not. It’s two layers of chocolate cake with coffee replacing the water in the recipe. I was incredibly antsy to taste it. But, I was made to wait. She modeled the cake after a mug of coffee, and adorned with our logo.

     We held a Cake Party the say after we got this delicious creation home. We invited our new neighbor and a couple of our friends to enjoy it with us! The neighbor and I didn’t taste the coffee, possibly due to being acclimated to the taste. A few moments after finishing our cake, I started getting jittery. There was at least a cup of Cold Brew in it, and it finally hit me.

     Just take a look at this delicious thing. I have a new favorite cake!
