Whimsy & Spice

01 September 2009

I don't even remember how I found the blog Sweet Fine Day...probably from clicking through from other blogs. This was how I discovered that they are actually confectioners in Brooklyn who have an Etsy store named Whimsy and Spice. Every single photo and description made me want to click the purchase button as they were positively drool-worthy and crave-inducing. I couldn't resist. I had to order some to try! Here is what arrived in the mail today (and I only placed the order last Saturday!):

Package from Whimsy and Spice

And to think I didn't even open it immediately because I thought it was something else I was expecting! Look how pretty the card is. Yes, I know you can't really see the contentsclearly so here's a better look at what was inside:

Goodies from Whimsy and Spice

Still not clear enough? Here's a better close-up.

Homemade marshmallows @ Whimsy and Spice

It sounds like marshmallows are what they're famous for since it mentions in their shop blurb that they're featured in the summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. I picked their trio sampler of caramel, maple, and cardamom marshmallows. I haven't opened any yet since I have guests arriving tomorrow and I want to share everything with them. If I were to open any of the packages, there might be nothing left to share tomorrow!

Espresso brownies with dulce de leche @ Whimsy & Spice

I also love anything made with coffee, so when I saw the "espresso" brownie with dulce de leche, I knew I would definitely order them. And yes, they are all still unopened. :(

Earl Grey Sandwich Cookies @ Whimsy & Spice

Earl grey sandwich cookies! Their shop description says "The exquisite scent and flavor of bergamot and the sweet creaminess of white chocolate in the filling combine to make a delicately scrumptious sandwich cookie. Each bite-sized earl grey sandwich is 1.75", perfect with a spot of tea." How could I resist? Plus, H is a fan of Earl Grey, so this is something I can share with the non-sweets lover in the family.

I can't wait to open them all tomorrow when the guests arrive. Yum! And because I like the postcard that came in the package so much, here's another shot:

  1. Those look so delicious! What a tease :)

  2. Yum...I was just craving chocolate, and I think those photos may have just put me over the edge! I had to pop over and drool at their etsy shop...the chocolate and butterscotch bars look like absolute heaven!

    And by the way-you have some seriously commendable self control. I would have opened every little package on the spot!! :)

  3. Self-control equals me opening a pack of marshmallows and scarfing them all down in one sitting. Seriously good!

  4. they catered our art show with charles nolan- everything was amazing

  5. Lucky! And thanks for dropping by. Love your blog as well!

  6. Oh my! So much goodness! Loving your blog, by the way.
