On Monday night, I watched a show called Cake Boss on TLC. They were making a white cake with a chocolate ganache and fresh strawberry filling. They iced the cake with buttercream and covered it with fondant. The show inspired me to try fondant for the first time and I also wanted to make the… MORE

This is my new Kitchen-Aid Artisan mixer in "Green Apple." I searched high and low for this specific color until I  found it. It is great being able to mix and walk away to get more or put away ingredients. I can't believe I have gone so long without one of these, what was I waiting… MORE

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua: http://www.youtube.com/user/HouseOfAqua/videos?sort=dd&flow=list&page=1&view=0
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
