Sweets and Treats In New York City

A family wedding this past weekend, lots of walking, being a tourist and having crazy fun. Of course I had to check out so many sweets and treats!  From Gorgeous French Macaroons to all of the delicious little Cupcake Shops-you could just sample all day long.  We arrived at the hotel and were met by my brother in law, with this tiny, fancy little bag which was holding these beautiful French Macaroons.  Delicious! Pink and green, filled with raspberry and chocolate - they were delicious! It also renewed my quest for making my own.  I have the recipes, just need to keep trying! Here is a cookbook I have which I will use when I get home!
The first event was a family dinner - not small as my husband is one of 9.  So just imagine husbands, wives and children.  My beautiful niece's father is from France so the dessert was a magnificent chocolate soufflé.
 All at the same time, each table received this delicious dessert dusted with Powdered sugar.  I have not attempted this treat but was very impressed at the 10 perfect soufflés that emerged from this tiny kitchen!

We had the day to explore on Saturday as the wedding was in the evening.  Our first stop - breakfast. I sampled each of my relatives choices but my favorite was a spelt cranberry scone.

We didn't stop at each treat store but I did take pictures - trust me- I'm going back! Love these little minis from Baked by Melissa.  They are delicious and check out all of her flavors on her                                                                                                                                             

Didn't get to stop but these doughnut flavors....yum                                                                             
Had to try this pretzel while we visited Christmas Village in Bryant Park.  I did share this.  I opted for the salted but oh so many kinds

Our final event - the wedding.  Another first for me - croquembouche which is alternative French wedding cake, a tower of profiteroles. 
  This was just amazing to see and delicious.  Next trays of French Pastries were passed on trays and I tried many of them!  All good!
A wonderful weekend, with family, a beautiful new marriage and good desserts!
I'll let you know how the macaroons turn out.
