Whimsy & Spice

Chocolate Orange Cardamom Shortbread

Whimsy & Spice was founded in Brooklyn in April 2008 by the husband and wife team of Mark Sopchak and Jenna Park, mixing up their skills in culinary arts and graphic design they produced one distinctive recipe for their line of handmade sweets. Mark, with his love of exotic spices, is the baker, and Jenna, art-director at large, is the "brander". Baking up luscious temptations such as Chocolate Orange Cardamom Shortbread, Hazelnut Chocolate Whisky Sandwich Cookies, Coconut Five Spice White Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate Chili Cashew Biscotti, and more, and more. We have no more excuses for putting our sugar coma on hold! But when they announced their homemade Cardamom Marshmallows for Fall...the seduction was complete! Sweet fancy Moses! Where's the hot chocolate!?

And let's not have that lame guilt-relieving banter of "you've taken out all the calories right?"...hardy, har, har. No they haven't...and that's why they're worth every single one! Bring it! A'ight? (See, I can be sweet and spicy at the same time...rowr.)

Visit their website for more information (like you need it)
or go directly to their Etsy store to peruse and purchase!
Or visit Mark & Jenna at their blog!
