We Should Cocoa - The Rose Round-up
So with this 12th challenge round-up, we've come to the end of our first year of We Should Cocoa. Don't forget to take a look at the Chocolate Teapot on 1 September to find out what we will be kicking off the next We Should Cocoa year with.
White Chocolate and Rose Loaf Cake. This is rather like a rose version of the classic lemon drizzle cake but sounds even better. I now really want some of the raspberry and rose cordial that she used, raspberries and rose are such a delicious combination.
Chocolate Profiteroles with Rose Cream were next up. This was the first time Selina of Yummy Choo Eats had made profiteroles - well I can't think of a better flavour to start with and being a rose fan herself, neither could she.
Victoria Sponge Cake with Cardamom, Rose Cream and Rhubarb - sounds like a big bit of heaven on a plate to me.
Rose, Pistachio and Apricot Tiffin.
Rose and Pistachio Blondies using cocoa nibs to give the additional texture and colour.
Chocolate Rose Fairy Cakes - note: NOT cupcakes.
Chocolate and Rose Baumtorte.
Rosewater, Rice and Chocolate Tarts.
White Chocolate Raspberry Rose Cake - now what was that I was saying about raspberry and rose?
Rose Scented Indulgent Chocolate Cake for a friend's birthday - very much liking the sound of indulgent!
Giant Rosewater and Chocolate Meringues.
Rosewater and Polenta Mini Bundt Cakes was the entry from Snowy of Cookbooks Galore. I'd never have thought to pair polenta with rose water and now I'm intrigued to try it.
Fennel and Rose Chocolate Brownies long before he posted them. The reality had me swooning of course. And the fact that the Belleau Kitchen didn't exist when he made them makes them even more remarkable.
Chocolate Stuffed Cupcakes with a Rose Frosting.
Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Barbies.
flat bread with roses and chocolate.
Rose Chocolate Truffles.
Chocolate Rose Cake instead. No wonder it was a crowd pleaser, it uses my all time favourite combination of milk chocolate and rose.
Plum and Rose Chocolate Cheesecake Bake, just in case I hadn't time to follow through with my original plan.
Imaginatively entitled rose cupcakes, these were all that I could have wished for when setting out on my rose and chocolate quest.
Chocolate Rose Cupcakes with Pistachios. Beautifully presented and photographed, I am lost in admiration.
Chocolate Rose Rice Pudding.
Chocolate Macarons with Rose Infused Cream Filling.
