About this Cook
I am a professional cake decorator and love to read about new recipes and techniques! I have three children and a DH who love my edible creations! I suppose my true love of baking forces me to balance things when cooking "real food" as I tend to go out of my way to create and convert yummy meals to "healthy"(lo-fat) versions.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all sweets and baked goods...especially the labor intensive types that my grandmother and great aunts make (i.e. I make my own phyllo dough and stretch it paper thin when making streudels).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have no real traditions as I am always trying new things to impress!
My cooking triumphs
Any tiered or 3-D sculpted cake...especially ones that are "interactive" (a huge fire station with towers that had dry ice "smoke" billowing out or a 3-D police car what was wired to have working lights and siren).

White Chocolate Grapes
Wonderful and refreshing...I tried dipping them 1/2 way in caramel first, then after that set up, I dipped it in the white chocolate...the BEST touch was instead of nuts, I rolled in crushed Golden Graham cereal...My next feat is to somehow make these less messy...perhaps dipping in the chocolate, rolling in cereal and then drizzling the caramel ontop...

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn
This recipe is a cinch and extremely devine. I made it to fill my baby shower favor bags which contained a neat little saying about "she's going to pop". Everyone loved this and wanted the recipe!!!

Sugar Cookie Icing
Absolutely fabulous!!! I colored my icing and had the different colors in pastry bags and with a tip #5 (which could vary depending on how big the cookie is) I piped the icing onto each long as your consistency is tacky-like, you can pipe just near the edges without it overflowing down the sides. Produces very professional looking cut-outs. You do need a good few hours for it to set up enough to stack cookies.
