Strawberries Please

Summer has arrived and it is a perfect time for a picnic! I worked with my talented sister Lindi of Love the Day to create this Strawberry Picnic. I have to say that my niece London is the cutest part of this party.

Strawberry Menu: churros with strawberry dipping sauce, strawberry cream cupcakes, strawberry cookie toppers, strawberry-lemon curd chiffon cake, and mini strawberry pies.

Cherry Party

A couple of weeks ago I worked with my sister Lindi of Love the Day to create this cherry themed party. For the menu I decided to make cherry shortbread hearts, chocolate covered cherries and vanilla cupcakes with marzipan cherry toppers. I had a wonderful time baking for this party and spending time with my sisters and nieces.

Blueberry Financier

A financier is a light, moist cake that is often mistaken for a pastry. Many say that the cake became popular in the financial district of Paris surrounding La Bourse du Commerce (the former name of the Paris stock exchange).

First of Many Cakes to Come

Gum Paste has been the theme of the last couple of weeks. I have been learning how to shape, sculpt, and pedal dust gum paste to create flowers for wedding cakes. Learning about constructing and decorating cakes has made me realize how much I enjoy creating cakes!
