Testing Flavors

Ok so tried out two new flavors today.  Vanilla Chai and Pomegranate.  Well the Vanilla Chai is very tasty and is topped with a Chai flavored Whipped Cream.  Yummy.  The Pomegranate ones not such good luck considering I have never had a Pomegranate I put some seeds into the batter(not realizing their were hard seeds inside the Juice seeds).  Crunchy cupcakes no bueno!  But the Fresh Organic Pomegranate Juice flavored Frosting very Delish!!!  I will retry the cupcakes with the juice no seeds and maybe some chocolate.

Pink Lemonade


So here is my new flavor........... PINK LEMONADE! 
These bake up so fluffy yet dense and are sweet without being to sweet and have a nice level of tartness.



The two colored swirl Frosting is my favorite.  Super cute and yummy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter

So this past weekend we went to my Brother and Sister -in-Law's house for Some good food, Swimming and Dessert.  I decided to try out a new recipe Chocolate Cupcakes with a Peanut Butter Filling. :-P.   How can you go wrong with these right.....Well you can't they were a total hit.  My Niece who is 9 said she wished that there was one big enough for her to marry she "LOVED" them so much.  (I think she had 3.)  These are definitely a keeper.  She has requested them for her Birthday!!  Sorry no pics.  I promise next time.

Super Yummy!

Made a new Marshmallow Fondant Recipe it's fab.  (I do not like fondant but this is good stuff.) This recipe adds some color and a ton of flavor.  Making your own Fondant is a mess but if all goes well and this holds up it will be well worth the work.  I look a bit like a powdered sugar doughnut (Powder sugar everywhere in the Kitchen and on me).  Working on a fun cake for a 50th party this weekend.  Pics to come as soon as it's all assembled.

Class Last Night


So here is the latest cake from my Fondant Class.  I was talking with my friend while we were at class last night and I think that we decided that this particular class wasn't worth the $$$.  I feel you should walk out of a class feeling like you have just conquered something by learning a new skill set.  We both are feeling the same way.  Maybe we will try somewhere else the next time we take a class and see how that goes.  I am not saying that I am a pro but ...... I didn't get anything out of this one.  Kind of bummed!!!!  :-{

80's Zebra (Cake Class)


This was the cake that we were taught how to make in Cake Class this evening.  You could do any color you wanted or the standard black and white.  It is supposed to have a bow on top but I got called away from class to rescue the rest of my family who were locked out of the house.  :-}  I still had a great time though learned a few things and got to catch up with a good friend.

Don't let your imagination limit you to just  a gift box with a nightie in it this box could have anything From a ring to flowers to a new baby announcement.

Oh My


So after great success with the Chardonnay Cake and frosting I was ready to jump into some more Vino inspired batters.  Well.... Not nearly the success that I was hoping for.  I tried to make a chocolate based Merlot cake and frosting.  In the baking cups the cake smelled wonderful but once out there was no taste of the Merlot.  Then came the frosting  I tried to mix in fresh raspberries to Chocolate Buttercream.  Smelled great and the taste was wonderful.  The fresh fruit acid broke the frosting.  Bummed but will try again.

Preggy Belly


This is a great Baby Shower Cake.  Check out the little foot.

Wedding Cake Pop's

These are great Wedding Favors.  Super cute and super yummy!
