Mia's Wedding Cake

Right now I am working on a dark chocolate wedding cake. I can't wait to see how it turns out. It is for a coworker of mine who wanted crows on her cake. I will be busy baking for the next few days, but check back because I should have photos up saturday or sunday at the latest.

I've also been making whipped truffles with Dana Lumby. Photos of the chocolate making session will be up as soon as I can get them off her camera. =)

Birthday Cupcakes

This weekend I made some extra special cupcakes for my friends Joy-loi and Nikolai. They had a double birthday party on Saturday and I must say it was a fantastic time! The guests were friendly, the atmosphere was electric, we ate cupcakes, drank and danced like crazy. It's Monday evening and I still feel worn out.

Royal Icing Flowers

I made these to warm up for cake class the other day. The Trumpet on the Daffodil is a bit large, but I think it's cool like that.

Interested in learning how to make these flowers? Come take a course at the Cookhouse, or if you want someone to make you something pretty and delicious give me a shout!

Chocolate Cactus Cookies with Lime Icing

Step 1: outline with a thick line of royal icing (I recommend tip #3).

step 2: thin your royal icing to a good consistency. Drop a spoonful back into the thinned icing, if it dissapears back into itself in about ten seconds it's good. Pipe or spread onto the cookies being careful not to smuck the outline. Let set to the touch, about 40 minutes or so.

Step 3 : pipe on any surface decoration in medium consistency icing.


For Easter Dana and I made some lemon sugar cookies!
