Chocolate mousse birthday cake :)
Fresh right out of the oven baguette. These 2 loaves of bread took a good 20 hours to make. I started the starter last night at 10 pm and I just pulled them out of the oven 30 mins ago. Oh man but it was totally worth it. They are delicious I already started munching on them. hehe =]
I’m going to make them into sandwiches for my boyfriends lunch for work tomorrow I hope he enjoys all my hard work.
These days I have a huge obsession with cake stands they are oh so cute I just want them all. While I was going through random blogs the other day I found this amazing post on how to make them on your own and I knew right away I had to make them. I think now I’m gonna be obsessed on making them and also you can save a lot of money making them yourself. It’s very simple and you don’t need a lot of supplies for this project (which is always the best).
Step 1. Go out and get supplies.
- Candle Holder or any other base you like
- Super Glue
- Spray Paint (optional)
I found this cute plate and candle holder at a local thrift store I absolutely loved the holes on the plate. The plate was $2.99 and the candle holder was $1.99 isn’t that a steal.
Step 2. Clean and spray paint the plate and base if you want. I would recommend you giving it at least 2 coats but make sure it dries completely before painting on another coat.
Step 3. Glue the base to the plate your done. Whoo Hoo wasn’t that easy =] I’m absolutely in love with my new cake stand. I can’t wait to bake something to display on it soon.
Food Safety Warning: DO not place any food directly onto the cake stand. Make sure to use some sort of liner.
With Valentines day around the corner I decided to make some cute simple heart cookies for my bf. Even though I’m pretty sure it’ll be all eaten way before Valentine’s day haha =] I absolutely love the little gift box I found at a local dollar store. The way you package your goods make a huge difference in your presentation I think. I hope he enjoys the cookies I baked for him <3
So glad to have my kitchen aid back. There has been a huge change in my life. I recently moved from LA to Seattle. I had to ship my mixer and it has finally arrived so I had to check if it was in good condition so I decided to bake up a batch of oh so yummy brownies. My mixer seems to be perfectly fine =]
Lady Finger Cake
Happy New Years everyone. Sorry my blogs been pretty dead for a couple of weeks so many things have been going on these days I haven’t had time to bake or update. =[ I can’t wait to start baking again soon.
Wedding Cake - Final
I can’t believe I’m almost done with school it seems so surreal to me hehe =] This was my last project all I have left is to turn in my portfolio on Monday.
Coconut Macaroons dipped in Chocolate. We used to make these at school all the time and I love them. But I can’t make them at home because it is so hard to find macaroon coconut since its different from the shredded coconut they sell at the stores =[
My first ever Chocolate Show Piece!! Chocolate frames painted with cocoa butter with a chocolate flower. Hmmm now what do I do with it? It’s just sitting here in my room right now. I’m just glad it’s not summertime or else it would’ve melted by now haha
