Baking photos

It’s been awhile since I posted, but that doesn’t mean I’m not crafting in some way…. just super busy!!  So, I am just adding a few photos of some baking that was done recently.

French Macarons

I tried my hand and baking French Macarons, and I was pleasantly surprised that it actually worked!! Now, they aren’t perfect, but I was pleased at how well my first attempt turned out!. I used this video and recipe “Beth’s Foolproof French Macaron” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ636Y8N6E8

Now to practice a bit more, before I make them for an upcoming baby shower!!

Summer baking and decorating

Busy summer here, with kids, projects and activities. I have made a few cakes this summer, so instead of posting each individually, I am going to post photos with a brief description.

Cookie decorating for a Contest!

I decided to enter LilaLoa’s Cookie Contest.  I’m pretty new to decorating cookies, and I really loved her idea for thinking outside the “box”, or “present!  These were the contest rules:

Bake a cookie using the present cookie cutter or template provided and then decorate that cookie to look like anything except a present. So I got out my paper and pencil, and sketched (scribbled)  a few designs, then started baking and coloring icing.  Here is what I came up with.

Thanks for looking 🙂
