Lemon Desserts – Farewell to Summer

Sep 28, 2017

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!

  2. This is the most gorgeous spread I’ve ever seen! I’d love to try each and everything you’ve got there. I’m so exited for fall, but all these lemon ideas definitely make me miss summer as well 🙂

  3. The pictures are gorgeous! I love the idea of having a ton of different lemon desserts because things will taste different and someone may like one but not the other. Great idea!

  4. I love everything lemon, so I’m totally in for all of this! YUM!
