Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts

First things first: Up there, that’s a photo of my entirely-too-cute goddaughter eating freshly made marshmallow straight from the spatula. We’re pretty brave (some might say stupid), sugaring up a 4-year-old like that. But how can you deny a child such a sweet, sweet gift?

I’m thrilled that I get to host Sugar High Friday again this month. Sugar High Friday is a traveling event that was originally created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess. Last month, Rachel of Vampituity hosted Sugar High Friday #40: Pies That Evoke Your Dreams (follow the link for the round-up). It’s a hard act to follow, but I’ll try.

The theme for March is: Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts.

In order to participate, please post the recipe for a dessert you made (or want to make) for someone else. Any sweet will do, as long as you also share the story of why you made (or want to make) that particular dessert for that particular person! The emphasis here is on the story more than the dessert, but I’m sure you make your best desserts when they’re meant to be gifts (unless you intentionally made a gross dessert as a prank gift, which would also count for this theme).

Now, the rules:

You must post your entry and email me to notify me of it by Monday, March 24, 2008 . I don’t really have the time to scour the internet searching for your entries, so if you don’t send me an email with the info listed below, it may not be included in the round-up. It’s just a matter of practicality, really.

Don’t forget to mention and link to this announcement in your post and if you can, also include a link to the round-up once it is up.

Send an email with the following information to habeasbrulee-AT-gmail-DOT-com:
Your name
Your blog’s name
Your blog’s URL (homepage)
The title of your entry
Your entry’s permalink (individual URL)
A 200×200 image (please give the file the same name as your blog)

If you don’t have a blog, you can post your write-up and picture (if any) on any website, or in the comments to this post, and I will still include it in the round-up.

The round-up will be posted on Friday, March 28, 2008.

  3. Alanna says:

    Great theme, Danielle!

  4. Jennifer says:

    What a gorgeous photo!

    I love this SHF theme – I can’t wait to see what everyone does!

  5. brilynn says:

    There are SO many things I could potentially post for this event… I may have to do more than one.

  6. Danielle says:

    Thank you, everyone! I can’t wait to see what sweets and stories you have to share!

    Brilynn – Please do! Enter as many times as you like!

  7. Tartelette says:

    Your goddaughter is just adorable!! The hard part will be to decide what to make, the possibilities are endless! Great choice of theme!

  8. She is soo cute!!
    Hmmm….we’ll have to think of a dessert dish. Thank goodness we still have some time. Don’t start the party without us!

  9. MissGinsu says:

    The cocked head… the marshmallow on the face… those eyes…

    This is definitely material for cuteoverload.com, except that I think they only do animals. But there must be something similar for shamelessly cute children.

  10. Aran says:

    That’s too cute! I have a 19-month old son and I have the same dilemma. He wants everythign I make and sometimes I feel guilty but how could I say no right?… She’s adorable!

    SHF sounds fantastic. Hopefully I will be able to take part!

  11. Danielle says:

    Tartelette – Thanks! I can’t wait to see what you decide on!

    White on Rice Couple – I sure won’t!

    MissGinsu – There surely must be a little kid version of cuteoverload. Or maybe I can sneak her in if I post that photo I have of her wuzzling my cat.

    Aran – Please do join in! And oh yes, kids are hard to refuse. By the way, I’m so glad you commented, since I’ve never seen your blog before and I just love it!

  12. Holly says:

    She looks darling. My son has started a “new” tradition that we make and give homemade marshmallows for gifts every Christmas (he is a marshmallow fanatic since it is a treat with no dairy that he can have – what can you do?). Anyway, great theme this month. I’ll definately dream something up, I really want to think about it and think back. Thanks for hosting!

  13. Zlamushka says:

    Your daughter looks so cute :-) Wow, you guys make marshmallows at home? Sweeet! Where is the recipe?

  14. Mansi says:

    That’s a wonderful theme, but not half as good as the thought behind it:) Count me in!!

  15. chriesi says:

    Your goddaughter is sweeter than sugar. :o)What a great theme, I hope to participate for the first time this month.

  16. novalis says:

    I was making a version of these replacing the cinnamon extract with cinnamon, and replacing the chili with chipotle, but I gave her the spatula before I added in any of the spicy stuff.

  17. LyB says:

    I’ve never participated in SHF before, this is a great theme, I’ve got so many ideas! Hopefully I’ll have time to make something before the deadline! :)

  18. Malinda says:

    Love the theme. My husband has been asking for this special dessert for months now. Here’s my excuse to make it :-). Your granddaughter is so beautiful. What great memories she’ll share with you.

  19. saralynn says:

    I can’t wait to participate! Sounds so fun!

  20. Deeba says:

    OMG…she’s actually entirely-too-cute & too precious too!! What a lovely picture. I’ve never sent something in for SHF…maybe this is gonna be a first from me! I got here from Cakelaws! Cheers!

  21. chriesi says:
