Many little bites of delight – the SHF #24 roundup


And now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the Sugar High Friday#24 roundup! I must say – I set a challenging theme and you certainly rose to the challenge. I have seldom seen such varied and creative entries for a SHF – not to mention so many exquisite and delicious-sounding ones! Some were amusing, some were elegant, some were very ambitious, but all were made with care and love. Thank you to everybody who gave up their leisure time and slaved through the night to get their petit fours made and their posts up – I’m sure you’ll agree it was worth it for that first heavenly bite. I have my favourites, and after you read the roundup I’m sure you will have yours ūüėČ And a big thank you to Jennifer for allowing me to host Sugar High Friday!

Just a few words before we get into the contributions… I have double checked my e-mails, trackbacks and comments to try and catch all participants, but I’m human – I may have missed somebody. If that somebody is you, a thousand apologies. Let me know ASAP and I will correct matters. I hope also that I have all your names and locations filled in correctly – if there is an error there, give me a shout (some of you are coyer than others on your blogs!!). And lastly, I have used one photo per entry, lifted shamelessly from your blogs. If this is a problem, let me know and I can remove it. And to the big wide world of readers out there, please note that the copyright to all these pictures belongs to the original author! Always ask before using.

    Mini fruit tartlets: SHF#24

    Thank God It’s Friday! And not just any, today is Sugar High Friday! Friday’s have become something special thanks to a fabulous idea spun up by the Domestic Goddess (Jennifer, that is, not Nigella) which is celebrating its 2nd anniversary

    Thank you for hosting! I felt like a kid on Christmas morning, (im)patiently awaiting for the round up!
    I have also discovered new blogs, the best thing about events like this one!

    Wow these look so decedent, just a pity that I am not a huge fan of deserts I really don’t have a sweet tooth at all, but give me any thing savory and I will be happy, but thanks for sharing all your hard work and those recipes will come in handy next time I am having the ladies over for tea.:)
