Pink Velvet & Berry Parfait

My husband rocks. He is so passionate about cooking & even though he's not a professional chef, his meals really impress me. 

I'm always posting them on my instagram, so if you follow me there, you'll see what I mean. He made these amazing parfaits for the LOVE LETTERS/Cartas De Amor digital Mag we put together, they were delicious! Below he'll add the recipe in case you want to impress your significant other! You can view the entire Love Letters magazine here. 


Also a quick shout out to Holly of Decor8 for sharing the 'Love Letter' mag on her blog! Thank you!

 


Here he is prepping...




Parfaits:

Cake (any kind of sponge or regular cake like the pink velvet)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar (powdered)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Berries - cut strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries

In a chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream with a whisk attachment until it begins to peak. Add the sugar and vanilla and finish whipping - should be light, soft peaks.


Cut small cubes of the cake and place in the bottom of a parfait or tall shooter glass (if you don't have those, champagne or wine glasses also work well). Carefully spoon about 2 tsp of cream on top then gently knock the bottom of the glass to force it down. Add a layer of berries, then another layer of cream. Top with an exceptional berry, or even a nice bing cherry!



Stay tuned for a few more sweeeeeeet Valentine's Day recipes this week!

I saw this in your book (which is stunners by the way) and I'm making it for my husband for Valentines Day.

I think Matt is amazing. As are you. And it's beautiful to me to see such a gorgeous, happy, stunning couple constantly demonstrating their love in all these sweet little ways.
