OMG. I can’t believe that I waited so long to try this technique out. Maybe it’s a good thing I did because left to my own devices I may have eaten every single one of these rolls.
No I’m not expecting another PhD Baby!! Our little girl is only 10 months old so no rush to add to the family just yet. However one of my best friends and her husband are expecting their first baby and they live on the other side of the world. Not being able to celebrate with them I decided I would just have to do something here.
I would never say that left over lemon curd is a problem. After making a wedding cake last week we have used the left overs on pancakes, I have eaten some directly off the spoon and I made this cake.
Sometimes you just need to stop and bake something just because. After weeks full of commissioned baking projects I took to facebook and asked for suggestions of something fun that I could make. I have great friends and one of my fellow baking buddies was quick to suggest these baked doughnuts by Joy the Baker.
Sorry that it’s been so long between posts. Thankfully no medical emergencies this time 🙂
I have been quite busy with baking orders for various weddings, baby showers, lots of pre Christmas functions and fundraisers for my daughters school. Needless to say the time for recreational baking has been limited. I am hoping to share my first spot of recreational baking in the next few days but in the mean time I thought I would share a photo of one of the wedding cakes I made recently.
It is a chocolate mud cake, filled with dark chocolate ganache and frosted with a vanilla bean buttercream.
Tiered cakes make me happy, hopefully puts a little smile on your face too.
Will be back with recipes soon! Thanks for being patient.
“Why is EVERYTHING pumpkin spice in North America?” asked our daughter during our recent trip to Canada and the States. She isn’t wrong. It was the beginning of fall, the leaves were changing, the days were getting colder and everywhere you went you could find pumpkin spice something.
In fact we brought home two varieties of pumpkin spice hand soap and pumpkin spice M&Ms (I even managed to drink a pumpkin spice latte, something I thought I would never do 😛 )
Fast forward a few weeks and here we are back at home in New Zealand and I am craving the flavours of fall. So a pumpkin was bought and roasted and now you will be subjected to a few pumpkin recipes.
I added chickpeas to cookies and it wasn’t weird!
We are back! Sorry that it has been so long between posts but we have been in Canada 🙂 Enjoying time with family, celebrating a friends wedding and taking in all the beautiful fall weather that Ontario has to offer.
Boiling sugar is scary. So is boiling oil. However both of these things can lead to some pretty delicious things. Take this for example.
