Summertime Sweetness

A feast for the eyes today! I highly recommend you have something next to your keyboard to indulge in while you peruse these pastries or you might be tempted to steal someone else's cake! Proceed with caution:

Frosted Cut-Out Cookies
This combo was chosen for it's summery goodness. As always: scratch made butter cookie & frosting scented with pure Vanilla essence. After 15+ years of making these they are still one of my favourites!

Beautiful Cupcakes
A moist velvety Devil's Food Cupcake is dipped in a dark Belgian chocolate glaze & piped with a sweet buttery flower. I have personally consumed a jindescribable amount of these recently. They are what keeps me slim. Heehee!

Pineapple Upside-down Cakes
Ohhh...these are sooo yummy! A moist rich yellow cake is baked with a ring of pineapple, a dark sweet cherry & lots of my very own caramel sauce. Bet you can't eat just one! (I know I can't. *blush*)

More 'jinormous' Cut-Out Cookies
I'm working on a new technique that will allow me to physically hand you this cookie through your monitor. You need to let me know if it's working properly. *jin passes one cookie to each & every blogfan reading this.* Ok...did it work? How did it taste? (One of you has really cold hands!!!)

Yeah, sorry about the cold hands. It's Winter here. And I'd appreciate it if you'd stop harping on about it being summer over there thank you very much! Well... OK, but only cause you posted those delicious looking pineapple creations.

PS. Thanks for the links to the 'out-dated art' of sugar casting. The sugar skulls link was particularly useful.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm! I've tasted Jinny's cookies, and they're To. Die. For! Um, how do those mini cupcakes travel? Think they'd make it to Canada? Eh? ;)

K. Gotta get back to my movie. It's a secret... get it? :)

Jewels said...

Fu&k! After watching the piccies again, I've hankering for a cookie, and all I can come up with is this bag of snack sized Coffee Crisp bars that are destined for Manitowoc... Hhhhhhhh, guess I'll have to do without; can't be sending the bag with a mini bar pilfered out of it... ;)

It didn't come through.

*wipes away crumbs*

You should try again.

The cold hands I can's the guy that reached past the cookie & grabbed somethin' else that must suffer the jinwrath!

Yes...I know you aren't fond of chocolate & abhor cookies so I threw the pineapple cakes in there just for you!

Glad I could help! A jin needs to be useful every once in a while. ;-)

jin said...



Don't eat mine!!!!!!
Jooooooolie! Please don't eat my coffee crisps. *pout*

I will send you cupcakes! :-D
Yes...they would ship to Canada easy!

p.s. Yes...I get your 'secret'. HA! Now I need to go care for my non-existant adopted child. What'll they think up next, hmmm?!

jin said...



Nice try smarty-tin-pants!


OOOOhhhh....Morse Code!

Dino aka Katy said...

cookie didn't come through. try again please? PS I shoudl get my german candy stuff I ordered Saturday - its a bit pricey but I cant wait.

uuuuaaaaahhhhhh ... I didn't get one!!! All the cookies was taken when I came ...

Heh, heh, heh, she said "moist"

jin said...


OH! You better post pics of what you get & describe each and every bite!!!

jin said...


I bet Phos ate them all!
Let's sit on him & put worms inside his gas mask!!!

jin said...


Just when I think that I should start respecting my elders is when you come up with a comment like that!!

Haha!! :-)

Rich said...

See, now that's just not true. If the chocolate is really high quality and is turned into a SUPER rich cake or slice or something soft and chewy then I'll wrestle you for it; and if the cookie is something small, thin, crisp, and with savoury qualities then I'm all for that too. But if it's a giant cookie with some sort of yellow sugar and coloured meringue/icing stuff then I'd rather eat a bucket of eyeballs.

Yummmmyyy...I love Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

How is JinChild or JinBaby? LOL!

angel said...

oh my word how could you tease a sweet tooth like that jin!!! now all i can think of is iced zoo biscuits!!! do you know what they are? i love them... though they used to have more icing on- and a picture on the back of the cookie!
wait- lemme see if i can find a link...

angel said...


angel said...

for the life of me i can't find a site for them...

jin said...


Ok. Lets wrestle. But I warn you...I possess secrets to winning when I wrestle a dude!

jin said...


Aha! I thought you might!
But the question is...would you rather have pineapple upside down cake or lemon pound cake???

Junior fell down a well. HA! :-P

jin said...


I think I know just what you mean...we called them animal crackers when I was a kid & I adored them!!!

OOoo....I could eat some right now!
Hmmm...might have to work on a jintastic recipe for those!

Not Ashley said...

Tough choice...hmmmm.

Thinking, thinking, thinking.

Must I only pick one????

If I must, then it would be the pineapple upside down cakes.

No Wait, maybe the lemon pound cake.

No Wait, maybe the pineapple.

No Wait, maybe both.

jin said...

Ahhh! A woman after my own heart.

At jintrinsique, you need not ever choose.

Here, you can ALWAYS have BOTH!!!

Snow White said...

You can't beat a frosted sugar cooke... it just can't be beat! And these look DEVINE!!!

jin said...

Thanks snow white & WELCOME to my blog!! :-D

I have seriously made tens of thousands of these babies and I still love eating them! LOL!

Hope to see you back again. :-)
