My daughter is having a Heritage day Party in class today, and she volunteered cupcakes! I was happy to hear that, I wasn’t really in the mood to make baklava or anything that took a lot of time or effort. I was happy about the cupcakes, because unlike making traditional foods or treats, you can be creative and design it in any way you want!
I made this cake for a small wedding yesterday! My inspiration was the berries! Instead of making the same old flowers and roses, I decided on fresh summer berries….after all it is summer time! I only wish I had my hands on some red currants… unfortunately they don’t come in Ontario till mid July! That is where the cherries came in to play!
A friend of mine asked me to make some ‘math’ cupcakes for a surprise party she was having for her math loving friend! She requested what she wanted on them, good thing too cause I wouldn’t know where to start!
In High School I had a math teacher who made me understand and look at numbers in a different way, I was no longer scared of them…..I actually began to love math!
I now know why that is, its because he loved math! He understood it and wanted everyone to understand, he had a passion and you can tell by the way he taught!
I may have made these cupcakes for her, but I dedicate these cupcakes to all the math teachers out there! The ones that encourage their students, and help them understand and fall in love with math!
I made this engagement cake Friday, it took me 2 days to make! The bride asked for Navy blue and white, so I cannot take credit for the colour choice! I have to admit she sure has good taste!
The bottom layer is a 12 inch chocolate cake with custard filling, and the top is 8 inch vanilla cake with custard.
I really appreciate bakers hard work on chocolate cakes, they’re not the easiest cakes to work with! The crumb coating itself takes time and patience! I think I did a good job covering it up. If I had the talent working with fondant I would have covered it, but I dont! I love the look of fondant cakes, but not the ones with bubbles, and that’s exactly what would happen if I tried…so there was no going there!
I made this cake for a friend of mine, its a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, custard filling. I just decorated it freestyle. I really don’t like my writing with icing….especially on a small cake like this, I think I need to get a stencil for cursive writing if there is such a thing!
Its a beautiful day today, and I just felt like baking something…..the thought of strawberry and vanilla just made me happy! My girls and I made these treats and set up our backyard for tea time!
My kids wanted cupcakes after seeing the ones I iced! I told them forget about it, as I was cupcaked out!
A friend of mine, asked if I could decorate her cupcakes for her, they’re for her brothers engagement party….the colours were white and silver.
I made these double fudge homemade cupcakes for a friend of mine….I made them two toned but for some reason when I took the pictures they look blue! Does anyone know why or how that could happen?
My mom loves lilacs, I wanted to make her a cake with lilacs on it. I was not sure how to make them, as I did know which tip I would need to make them. I just used the tip I use for swirls and pipped them out and shaped them as if it were lilacs. I think it turned out good! I made a classic yellow cake, recipe is in the ‘Cake bible’ by Rose Levy Beranbaum
