Food Fit For a King!

There were so many things I said I would never do as a parent and then I became one. I swore my baby would be on a schedule, I would not give him a soother, I would never have him in our bed, the list goes on and on. However, there was one thing I said I would do and have so far stuck to it and that’s making my own baby food. This way I know what’s going into his little tummy and since he’s well into solids now it’s actually pretty fun concocting new recipes and experimenting with all the purees!

All Things Mini

Not only will we be offering making minis this year, we’ll also be offering making mini cakes too! If you sign up for our adult baking class you can learn how to make these fantastic, little mini cakes.

One cake’s flowers were made with gumpaste and the other with modelling chocolate. Each has its own benefits however. Gumpaste tends to dry out extremely quickly and will sometimes crack. Gumpaste is often used to make flowers and decorative pieces as it can be rolled out very thin. Modelling chocolate is similar to a clay like substance and is easier to smooth out your seems with. Both are very pliable materials and are fantastic to use for decorating cakes.
