IMG_5157I love baking desserts and sweet treats and if you’re the same, why not finish your delicious creations with fun, handmade decorations.

The dessert I made is a traditional English recipe, using homemade meringues and fresh raspberry cream. It’s called Eton Mess and you can find the recipe here.IMG_5161

Spring treats

 

IMG_1088IMG_1110Today I’m sharing these little springtime treat boxes I made up using the Favor Wrap Large Design Set for the Fuse.
