Yard Work






http://www.cakestudio.ca/wedding-cakes1.htmlGrowing Cupcakes -- my boss are learning about trees and plants, wish I could make these for them to take to school!:


Very cute Garden Birthday cake by Wild Orchid Baking Co., via Flickr. Looks fairly simple--a good cake for a beginning cake decorator!:


Spring calls for lots of planning and baking and I’ve been busy getting my yard work done this spring and that’s why you haven’t seen me too often here, sorry.

Place the dark chocolate with the (unbeaten) cream, butter and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat and stir well with a wooden spoon. When the chocolate has melted, pour the mixture into a bowl. Cover the bowl with a layer of plastic wrap and let the masses in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to harden.

Remove the chocolate mixture from the refrigerator and mix well with a mixer at medium speed. Now with a spoon scoop small balls on a baking tray with a sheet of parchment paper. Let the balls are just 10 minutes in the fridge (they are not tough enough, let them stand a little longer in the refrigerator).

Then make small balls of your chocolate. This is done by a little chocolate in your hands to roll into a ball. (Use disposable gloves). Insert the lollipop sticks in the balls and put them in a piece of styrofoam or something. Put the lollipops then for about 45 minutes in the freezer.
Keep up made all lollipops and let them have a total of 30 minutes in the freezer. Melt the chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. When the chocolate has melted you dip the lollipops in the melted chocolate.
Now you can immediately apply the decorations on the lollipops. Dip them into tasty sprinkles and then insert them into a special lollipop holder or design a holder of a nice glass for example nuts as padding.

Pack the lollipops in cellophane nice as nice little presents!

Baked Alaska Chocolate Cake & Chocolate Ice Cream

I’ve not been feeling well lately but as I started looking for a new recipe for my blog I realised something, no matter how bad I feel be it sick or just kinda in a funk, chocolate cakes or puddings, or candies, just looking at them I start to feel a little bit better.
