YUMmy Baby Shower Treats. Congratulations, Sea!
Posted By Heather On June 8, 2009 @ 4:13 am In Desserts,Special Occasion | 17 Comments
Today I’m posting a couple recipes perfect for a gluten-free baby shower. When I read that Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness  was hosting a virtual baby shower  for Sea at Book of Yum , I immediately signed up. What a fun idea to celebrate the impending birth of Baby Yum! Sea and her website have not only been providing hundreds of gluten-free and vegetarian recipes to others trying to live a happy and healthy gluten-free life, but have also inspired and encouraged others to do the same.
So, keeping this in mind, what recipes could I possibly offer her for this special event? She already has such a library of wonderful recipes. And, I have no doubt she will create many new ones suitable for Baby Yum. So I decided to create something new and fun that you might offer at a baby shower.
First, I made Raspberry Divinity Tarts. They aren’t made with the traditional divinity candy, but these are truly divine. The tart shell is a simple meringue to which I added a little almond flavor. I love working with meringue for so many reasons: it’s quick and easy to make, fun to work with, yummy to eat, and naturally gluten-free (vegetarian, soy-free, and dairy-free, too!). With berries being in season, I thought it seemed like the perfect thing to pair with with the meringue. Even better, raspberries sitting in a pool of chocolate ganache on top of clouds of meringue. YUM-y!
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
1/2 Cup superfine white sugar
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, either chips or cut up into small chunks
1/4 Cup heavy cream
1 pint raspberries
After I made the tarts, I decided to make another batch of meringue and play with it a little. I added some yellow food coloring and tried making rubber duckies. It took several attempts, but I think I managed to create cute little ducks that would be a great addition to a Little Duck Baby Shower .
2 large egg whites (at room temperature)
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp almond extract
yellow food coloring
1/2 Cup superfine sugar
handful of mini chocolate chips (or other small round candy)
orange candy for beaks (I used Wilton Confetti Jumbo Sprinkles .)
