at a wedding, i go straight to the cake to see(critique)it.
at the magazine rack i go straight for the wedding books to look at the cakes.
at a restaurant, i find the dessert menu to see if i need to leave room.
basically i love baking and trying new things! i live for baked goods! i have worked in two bakeries doing production. i also worked at a chocolatier with my best friend...it was exactly like that scene in i love lucy...
also just got a job as an assistant pastry chef!!!
My favorite things to cook
bake to live, live to bake!
i cook because i have to eat...
My favorite family cooking traditions
we have family recipes for sugar cookies that everybody looks forward to every christmas.
we also have an annual chocolate covered cherry party every november...
everyone brings a jar of cherries and we all dip and decorate and drink wine! top that off with watching a christmas story and you are on your way to the holidays feeling festive!
My cooking triumphs
a three tiered wedding cake...see below (sigh)
My cooking tragedies
i made a three tiered wedding cake that was gorgeous! exactly like the photo the bride gave me... her mother was delivering the cake as the wedding was a bit of a drive and lets just say the cake never made it...
