Weekend starts now! As we kick off the unofficial start to summer, I wanted to share what we’ve been up to at Buttercream Blondie, and share a few of my go-to summer desserts!
Whether you’re looking to whip up some decadent sweets this weekend, or would rather have us do the baking for you, we’ve got you covered!
Before we dive into our summer lineup, I want to thank you for the incredible response to the new Cake & Cookie Party Pack! In case you missed it, this party in a box includes your favorite confetti tea cakes plus an assortment of our signature spirited cookies, that just happen to make the best ice cream sandwiches ever!
This collection has you covered whether you’re hosting, treating yourself, or looking for the ultimate gift!
The other cookie box that’s been flying out the virtual door is the Happy Hour Cookie Box!
I don’t like to be partial, but this sweet little cocktail inspired dozen has my heart! The Happy Hour Cookie Box is perfect when you find yourself in need of a cookie fix, and when you want to have your cookie and drink it too!
The current selection comes with the incredibly lush Mudslide and Old-Fashioned Kind of Love, which is how Buttercream Blondie does an oatmeal cookie!
For those of you looking to do some baking this weekend, I’ve put together a few of my favorite summer desserts to keep on hand throughout the summer!
So many of you have made these Margarita Bars that there’s no way I couldn’t include them! They are the dessert of summer, and in full disclosure, they’re on permanent rotation throughout the season in my house!
If you love margaritas and desserts that are both light and lush, these are for you!
Continuing on the bar train are these delightful strawberry rhubarb crisp bars! Whether you are all about rhubarb, or not quite sure about your relationship status just yet, trust me on these! The strawberries help balance out the bite of the rhubarb, and the addition of whiskey takes the classic crisp to a whole new level!
The story goes something like this: A classic fruit crisp met an old-fashioned cocktail and the rest is history!
Next up is how to get your cheesecake fix without turning the oven on! These Baileys Cheesecake Pops are everything you love about the classic without the work + Baileys + sprinkles.
You’re not going to believe how easy they are!
I’ve never been big on breakfast, but make it cake, and I’m in! Peach Bourbon Crumb Cake is one of my go-to summer bakes and whether you’re calling it brunch, a snack, or dessert, it’s a must for peach season. Just don’t skimp on the bourbon glaze!
Anyone else feel like they’re enjoying more boozy milkshakes than ever before?! While there are quite a few I love, the Pink Squirrel is the one I always go back to! It’s my spin on the retro cocktail and the roasted strawberries are what make it the ultimate summer shake.
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend! Thank you for continuing to make Buttercream Blondie part of your holidays and every day celebrations! Happy baking!
Please note, all orders placed this week and weekend will ship on Tuesday, June 1 due to the holiday. Thank you!
