1st attempt at Cake Pops

Well i attempted to make my first cake pops. I've seen them done a ton of times on other sites but nobody does it better than Bakerella herself. I would say she is the Cake Pop Goddess! So here is my attempt. I have a lot to learn and I'll definitely try this again.
It's left over chocolate cake and i added a bit of vanilla frosted buttercream. This icing recipe is so good and when it gets whipped it's almost like a mouse.






Hoping Spring will come early

We were invited to a friends house for dinner on Saturday and of course i find any excuse to bake. :D I found the flowers left over from my Wilton Course 2 back from last year. Good thing they were sealed in a tupperware container in the back of the dark cupboard. The nice thing is, they lasted that long and it paid off keeping them.
This is a chocolate cake covered with chocolate buttercream frosting. I whipped it so much it came out to be a mouse like kind of icing. It actually complimented the cake pretty well. All the flowers and birds are made out of Royal Icing.

5-Minute Baked Goods??

This is deadly for those who ever need a chocolate fix under 5 mins. I've seen this before but i could never remember where i saw it. So i found it on this cool website this morning and i figured i would share with everyone!

My little helper

My daughter loves to bake and of course she is always wanting to help me whenever i need to bake something. :D

Trying to get Callie to smile for the camera is becoming so much harder.

She has to make sure that her cake dough is still in there. Plus i think she's also checking out how much longer it has so she can lick the bowl.

My cake pantry


So this is the most organized pantry (only because i cleaned it two days ago). I have a ton of stuff around the house but this is the main central area for all of my baking/cook books and pieces of paper with other recipes that i find when on the Internet.

I hope to have something baked on the weekend and hopefully can use my new camera. I went and bought myself a new Canon PowerShot SX120 IS. It is gorgeous and i'm having a lot of fun with it.
