A week's worth of sweets

Friday, June 26, 2009

I blame the nice weather… Red Velvet Cupcakes



Buried somewhere beneath the blueberries, cheesecake squares, lychee, mochi and kiwi is the frozen yogurt:



Strawberry, kiwi and mandarin fruit tarts:



We Green Tea Boba’s.





Pretty Wagashi from Fugetsu-do, a confectionery store in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles since 1903:





Lastly, not sweet but sweet to look at maybe is a stolen Magnolia. Isn't it gorgeous?



Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Oh sweet and I do mean sweet gabbi, what lovely treats you have posted for us! I will certainly be on the lookout for some eats here on St. John all for your darling:) The marie antoinette scene is the best. I loved that movie, talk about eye candy all the way through, the costumes, jewels and candy!

Love all the layout changes you are using with your blog, but I must say I do miss seeing dear George. He was a great greeter to Felino Felice.

Have a great saturday dear gabbi.

Rebecca said...

Oh yum!! I love that clip from Marie Antoinette - that movie was so pretty. :)

Gabby said...

This made me happy! There is a Yogurtland walking distance from my house...thanks for reminding me! xo

LiLu said...

I love the delicate pastels of the Japanese sweeties! The fruit salad is my favourite I think though - the lychees look plump and gorgeous! The magnolias are incredible too - I always think they look like really gigantic gardenias without the scent...!! A super pretty post Gabbi - thank you and hope your having a great weekend! I'm glad you never forget to take your camera out with you!

ana b. said...

Gahhhhhh! I think I just drooled all over myself. I've just baked a cake too and now feel as if I'll spend the rest of the night dreaming of eating the entire thing. This must be my favourite bit in Marie Antoinette. Stuff the history. Look at the cakes and clothes!!!

Lovely, I have given you some awards! I fear you already have them but then that doesn't stop me giving them to you ;)

muchlove said...

yummmmmmmy!!
cupcakes, fruit tarts, bubble tea, and *that* marie antoinette clip = yes please!
I actually had a couple of delicious fruit tarts this week. It was such a treat.

Hope you have/had a sweet weekend too :)

Couture Carrie said...

down and out chic said...

...love Maegan said...

your photos are gorgeous!

kirstyb said...

Yeah the movie was good. It really made me laugh xoxoxo

Gabbi said...

~ Thank you Sam♥… it’s not a fruit salad though :) it’s just toppings on my frozen yogurt. It was a crazy week, not sure why but sweets were everywhere this time. They are such similar looking flowers aren’t they? I would always get magnolias and gardenias mixed up until I planted my little gardenias in the garden. But yeah, they are huge and yes, they do smell not as much... I loved your blog themed comics and those adorable little mice of yours! Hope your weekend has been lovely.xo

~ Thank you Luna! :)

~ Thank you so much Fashion, those scalloped dresses on your most recent post are gorgeous!

~ What a great giveaway Carlotta and your jewelry creations are very pretty… thank you! ♥

~ I love your sound effects dear Ana… isn’t Sofia a genius? :) Her 21st century take on the 18th Century completely blew me away and always such amazing soundtracks. Thank you so much for the lovely awards Ana, really touched and honored! Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday.xo

~ Thank you dear Anna, I’d never heard it called bubble tea before but it suits it perfectly doesn’t it? I love fruit tarts; I pretend I’m eating healthy since it’s covered with fruit…♥ :)

~ Thank you dearest CC, I love♥Love♥Love your newst pop-up boutique post! Such amazing vintage finds. I’m still thinking of that bow belt. It’s a little small for me though… I even busted out the measuring tape to check!

~ Love cupcakes :) Thank you Natalie!

~ Thank you Kristy and Esthète!♥♥♥

~ It’s one of my favorite treats Christina… :) By the way, that muffin video of yours is hilarious! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend…

~ Thank you so much Maegan and Kirsty!xo♥

I'm dying. I'm actually about to make some really easy brownie from trader joe's where all u do is add yogurt and bake!

The Clothes Horse said...

Gabbi said...

~ I’d never heard of the brownie mix before, but it sounds perfect Yvonne! It’s too hot to turn on the oven around here right now, but as soon as things cool down I’m getting it… Hope the move is going well!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Deliciousss...
I'm in love with mochi! Gabbi, you can get mochi with ice cream filling in Japanese supermarket (fozen dept-it's in a box)...try them! Yum!!
~XO*

Pen Pen said...

HOLY gumdrops!! That's my FAVORITE CLIP from 'Marie Antoinette'!!! You know-'Laduree' provided many of the actual desserts they had on the set :)!! YAY!!

I LOVE all of these! I thought they desserts might be Tokyo inspired before reading anything--I have a small Tokyo obsession. It just seems like a wonderous place and I check the blogs of people in Japan A LOT! ...and my favorite episode of 'House Hunters International' is the one where this girl looks for an apartment in Tokyo-I'm gonna see if I can find that online :)

I do LOVE those paper chandeliers in Fugetsu-do! AND the chairs!! SO CUTE!!!!

_nina_malvada_ said...

~ We ♥ Boba’s… :) Thank you Diana!

~ I love fruit tarts too Emily… I pretend it’s healthy. :)

~ Yeah, so wicked. Thank you Andrea! ♥

~ Thank you Lenore, I love those! My favorite is the green tea… I adore green tea ice cream. :)

~ They are very Japanese looking and sounding aren’t they? I’m off to google ‘Laduree’ now… thank you Penny.xo

~ Thank you Nina, your blogger group sounds like such fun. I love the idea. ♥
