Eat Dessert First!

I am currently working on a 40th birthday celebration
for my sweet husband!
I have been looking at cake designs and although
I have seen some nice cakes, I just haven't found that one yet!
In the mean time I have decided to have mini desserts!
As in these very tasty Dessert Shooters!
These are so fun and you can make so many flavors
that there should be something for everyone!
I found some great ones at a sweet little bakery
called Buttercream!

I really need your help!
I know my tastes but,
I would love to get your opinions!
So leave a comment and tell
me your favorite!
So here are the flavors:

Raspberry Marble Chambord
Layers of Chocolate and White Cake infused with Chambord
Raspberry Mousse topped with a fresh Raspberry

White Cake infused with Amaretto Liquor
Amaretto filling and Toasted Almonds


Devils Food Cake, Creme De Menthe Chiffon and Crushed Cookies

Baileys Irish Cream

Dark Chocolate Cake soaked in Baileys, Baileys Mousse and Crushed Cookies

Fuzzy Navel

White Sponge Cake soaked in Peach Schnappes, Buttercream Mousse and Candied Lemon


Chocolate Cake, Marshmallow Filling and Graham Crackers

What's your Favorite?


  1. Raspberry Marble Chambord (something fruity and chocolate and white all in one)
    Baileys Irish Cream (something more "adult")
    Smores (something fun and the kids-friendly)

    I would probably add a "Cappucino" version with a coffee flavored or chocolate cake w/Kahlua buttercream and chocolate jimmies or a chocolate covered coffe bean on top :)

    Fun idea--which I'm forwarding to my hubby when "He" throws my 30th (which I'm planning) this year! :) hehe

  2. Every time I serve these, people LOVE them. I can't wait to try some of these new combinations! Thanks!!

  3. Forgot to add, I would love the Baileys I think, or the Amaretto, then Smores, Raspberry, and Peach; not a big fan of Mint dessert...does that help? ;D I like Myra's Cappucino idea also.

  4. I love dessert shooters! I think the Amaretto sounds wonderful!!

  5. I also like to do a cheesecake with either strawberry or raspberry, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and then something chocolate. All of your recipes look super yummy!

  6. The AMARETTO one sounds YUMMY!!!!!!!
