OK, here is the a pic, I was just playing....sooo needs some work.  I am just dead tired and the mousse is way to soft still.  Not sure about the strawberry will try something else or not split it up.

We will see what I come up with at the crack of dawn! **YAWN**

I often get impatient and I try to bake and make things when I am tried, late at night. Sometimes I can't wait for my icing to firm up and the same things happen to me sometimes. I saw your other photos and they turned out great.

About Me
I am native Texan (born & raised). who loves to cook. Fancy to simple, it matters not, I simply love to cook. I have a stressful job and I find cooking is the best stress reliever and truly a relaxing for me rather than a chore. I have been cooking since I was about 7 and always had a natural affinity and curiosity for it. I often experimented. Both my parents worked and my sister and I oftened fended for ourselves. So, I guess a great deal of it came from necessity at times, but once I started I couldn't stop.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes and do not stick to one thing. My favorite is probably desserts. I love to experiment!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tamales! Every Christmas, we all get together and make tamales. If you don't help, you don't get any.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of mexican cuisine. I am of hispanic descent, but very americanized. We definetly DO NOT eat mexican food every day in our house.
My cooking tragedies
Rolls! I used to make them so well and the last couple of times they have been "Ellie Mae" type rolls....I am still trying to get over it. ****UPDATE***finally got my roll groove back and found the best recipe...I have redeemed myself! HA!
