I can FLY!

April 15, 2008

Some parts of cake decorating I love just for the simple joy of the quiet I can experience while working on it…(aka, I do this when the kids are in bed or else suffer major stress!)

take for example, working with chocolate to make ‘decorations’ like hmmm Snitch Wings..

First you draw your pattern on paper

Tape it to the counter, and then tape a piece of waxed paper over it.

Next, melt your chocolate

follow your instructions carefully of course so as not to burn your chocolate or yourself…

Then Pipe the chocolate over your pattern.

I have done a MUCH better job in my piping in the past… two problems last night, first, I couldn’t find my usual chocolate piping containers… so the lid had a much larger hole (more for making filled chocolates or lollipops, than piping designs)…  these may have to do if I can’t find the containers today for a do-over…

Finally, for a fun added touch, paint on edible ‘pearl dust’

    You are so talented! Maybe I should hire YOU to make my wedding cupcakes! 🙂 J/K. I wouldn’t want to put that stress on a friend. I can’t wait to see what you got today!

    Lovely! Don’t be so critical of something that will be devoured much faster than you created it. 😉
