Busy busy! Hey there, I haven't been able to do too much baking lately besides work-related stuff, but here's a picture of my first gumpaste flowers:
I think they're cute, but I don't like the shading of pink in the middle! But thanks to some research on a VERY cute flickr site, I figured out I should be using powder color instead of shimmer dust to achieve the shading I want.
While I have time, I have to mention my top 10 favorite baking blogs to read. These blogs provide me with daily inspiration, and you should read them when you get a chance!
1. Building A Bakery
3. Bakerella (recently on Martha Stewart!)
5. David Lebovitz
6. Business of Cake
8. How to Eat A Cupcake
9. Gigi Cakes
10. Pink Cake Box
AND...since I spend hours on the wilton.com discussion forum looking at cakes, I have to mention a cake I am absolutely in love with. It's a tie-dye cake!
What I love about it is that even the cake part is tie-dye. I'm going to have to make this one soon for sure! I'll post again soon - I'm making french macarons on Thursday at work!
P.S. I dropped 30 croissants worth of dough on the ground last night at work - oops. lol
