Truffles!!

July 3, 2008 at 8:08 pm (Cooking, Holidays) (, , , )

Yay I found a pic of my truffles!! I can make any filling you can dream of but what I have done in the past are: caramel, rum, dark chocolate, vanilla, key lime, peanut butter, raspberry, strawberry, and blueberry.  The outside is made of milk, dark, or white chocolate.  THe ones pictured were for a Christmas party, hence the red and green!

Pac Man

This is a pull-apart cake, which means its a bunch of cupcakes put together and iced as one large cake and you can “pull it apart” instead of having to slice a cake. This was for an 80’s themed party.

My creation

July 1, 2008 at 6:04 pm (Cooking) (, )

I’ve always been sort of a closet cook. I love to do it, but it’s all self-taught. If I could do it all over again, I would have gone to culinary school instead of college. Anyway, since I’m a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) I really feel this is the right time to get started on a business of my own. Because who really likes working for someone else. So, I think I’m going to put some effort into marketing myself and selling my wares. Unfortunately, all these years that I’ve made chocolates and cookies for the holidays I’ve never taken a damn picture of them! So I don’t have pics to show. This is the only one I have for now, and I suppose I will have to start creating for the sole purpose of photographing what I can offer. For now, this is what I have. Vanilla cupcakes with gumpaste butterflies and flowers.
