This week we've been piling on layers and the warmest wool socks. It's darn chilly here! We're scheduled to get more icy weather this weekend, so businesses will close and the world will slow temporarily. What better opportunity to whip marshmallows into mousse while wearing flannel PJ's, right?
I consider these snowy verrines with garnet red berries my ode to January. I can't believe we're nearing the month's end.
The sky is low.
The wind is gray.
Purrs all day.

One thing that I've been loving lately - dresden trim. Little foil stars and snowflakes... I just can't keep them off my confections. I use them for cupcake toppers and I like to tie them onto cookie-filled treat bags. They make everything so pretty. These were found at D. Blumchen and Co. if you're interested in getting some for yourself.
