I've been dreading posting not because I have nothing to say, but because there is just too much! Where to begin?!? Well, my 22nd birthday came and went - I did not make myself a cake, but my parents did take me to Pix and I got macarons! I cannot for the life of me make them, but I can sure eat them! Their salty caramel macarons are soooooo good! Just look at all the tasty desserts!
Someday my macarons will be decent...sigh.
In other news, I've been baking it up at work and here's some pics (Sorry for the horrible quality...camera phone...again):
This is my first mini multi-tiered cake! I had leftover flowers, so I thought I'd give it a go. At first I hated the colors, but it has grown on me. The top has a hibiscus-type flower. I had a lot of fun making this!
Here are some cookies inspired by Cake Journal. The edges of the actual cookie are crap because I used a template and not a cutter, but I absolutely love Antonia's Royal Icing! It's really easy to use.
What else? Oh yeah, I've made about a million cupcakes...just experimenting, giving for birthdays, etc. etc. Here are some:
So many different kinds! The bottom two are the most recent: chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with almond vanilla buttercream (tasty!) and red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I love the color of red those turned out to be. I think I'm crazy for baking so much. Oh well, it's getting me closer to my goal! I'll be back soon with more pictures and stories - stay tuned!
