This picture was shot by my Aunt- a fabulous photographer-
The picture was from my 30th birthday celebration. Grandmother's Chocolate Cupcakes, Aunt Christy's Banana Pudding, Lemon Tartlettes and Mini Pecan Pies. The Lemon Tartlettes were an easy choice- individual puff pastries stuffed with lemon curd and then meringue piped on top. I think I may have used my Dad's pecan pie filling recipe and just placed it in phyllo cups.
There is an ongoing discussion with my family to decide whether the chocolate icing we make should include fresh lemon juice, or a small amount of coffee. I am partial to coffee- it is delicious- but my mom prefers lemon juice.
