Drum Roll, Drum Roll Please......

Cappuccino Mousse Trifle
If anyone is interested in making this, it's super easy & no baking.
You can find the recipe here.
I used milk chocolate chips because it is difficult to grate the chocolate!!!!

I made these lovely deserts for a bbq/party at Chuck's sister's house.
She is my sister-in-love!!!
We are saying goodbye to Chuck's brother Patrick.
He is in the Coast Guard and leaving for Kuwait on Friday.

Here's The Family......
So many of us are missing but seeing these guys is always wonderful!!!
Pat's the handsome one......back row, blue shirt, by the window!!!!

Patrick, on the left......
Pat, we love you and are so very proud of you.
It was amazing to see you last night.
Thank you so much for all your very kind and tender words.

I gave Pat a beautiful red, white and blue quilt that my new friend Nancy made,
he loved it!!! 


  1. WHAT A baker you are!! They look amazing.... And for such a wonderful get together...

  2. Everything looks yummy. Love the chocolate cupcakes. Sound like you gave Patrick a "sweet" send off. I am so grateful to our young men and women for the jobs they tackling. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.

  3. Oooh-la-la!!!! Im still drum rolling!:)
    Can you come to my house? I will let you use my oven;))

  4. oh, you are the dessert queen! good golly! but with that big bunch of family to feed, i bet they didn't last long. good luck to pat!

  5. Oh yum, can I come to your house lol. Looks very tasty. You have a lovely big family. Hope you all had a great time and good luck to Pat!
    Oh, and thanks for the lovely comments on my pictures. Much appreciated.

  6. Oh mercy! I am day dreaming about your goodies! (But, I'll try to contain myself and stick with my diet!) :)

    That's a good looking bunch. Be safe, Patrick. God bless you!

  7. Oh my! I believe you should own a bakery. Your goods would sell very quickly. Look at those gorgeous dessert creations! Absolutely mouth watering. I see you are a master with the frosting decorating bag. Thanks for sharing a few of your decadent recipes! Marvelous!

    Beautiful family!

  8. I just gained 10 pounds! Amazing!

    Your family is lovely!

  9. It definitely was not a good idea to look at this when I'm hungry.Now i want all of it,or at least taste all of it.

  10. Everything looks delicious, Debbie. I wish Patrick well and that he returns soon.

  11. Looks like they put the right person in charge of dessert!

  12. Insert iPhone into mouth.... Yup still tastes like I phone. Darn. Though it would be chocolate or buttery goodness. These look delish!

  13. Oh my goodness, everything looks so yummy Debbie!

    Wishing Patrick the best, and saying thank you.

  14. LOL, at first as I started to read your post I was thinking "oh what a temptress you are - all that lovely food... don't look, remember I'm dieting - blah blah".
    Then I continued reading. The occasion absolutely deserved all the sweet home-cooked lovingly served dishes you could muster.
    Well done Debbie :D)

    I am sorry I have to leave now I have a very bad craving for something sweet. B

  18. God Bless Our Troops! Please tell Patrick thank you from South Dakota for his sacrifice!

  19. He deserved them all....and I read the recipes to the first and the gooey butter cake...I need to remember that I saw them here...I am sure my hubby would love that first. And I would love the second.
