I’m a little late to posting this, but my sister Jennifer Nordine aka Freckles on Fillmore hosted the CUTEST farewell to summer dinner party with her girlfriends! It was featured on Glitter Guide, feel free to check out the post here: Farewell Summer Party.
This shindig was completely lemon themed. Anything lemon you could possibly imagine it was there and it was styled to perfection! While I unfortunately wasn’t able to attend the lovely event I did get to make all of the sweets for it…and believe it or not they were gluten free! I love my sweets and I love gluten, but Jen and her friends are all very health conscious so gluten free was the way to go. Trust me when I say that these lemon desserts did NOT taste gluten free.
The Dessert Menu:
-Lemon Almond Cake with lemon curd filling, topped with lemon whipped cream frosting
-Coconut Lemon Tarts topped with meringue
-Vanilla Bean Macarons, with vanilla frosting. I added lemon curd to a few of these of course, but they are just as good as plain vanilla bean.
My absolute favorite was the lemon almond cake, because yes I did make myself a tiny separate one to try since I couldn’t attend. I had to taste test people! Apparently the macarons were gone within the first ten minutes so if you’re looking for a tasty macaron recipe. This is the one for you!
Nothing Sour About These Lemon Desserts

If you guys want me to post all of the recipes for these lemon desserts I can, they are just fairly lengthy so I figured I could split them up into separate posts. I hope you enjoyed this one though 🙂 Let me know your favorite lemon dessert in the comments below!
