Oh Sugar Sugar

Boy do I love to bake!! And honestly one of the best parts for me is that I don't eat much of it =) I like to bake for others. I've been sending Josh to work with yummy things almost everyday for the last 2 weeks. From what I hear the shop boys are LOVING it all!!

Well onto the creations... Yesterday I had to opportunity to bake a yummy cake for my decorating class that I'm taking. My favorite part of the cake is actually the cake and not the icing like many others I know, so I put some extra thought into the batter. So my flavor yesterday was a strawberry & pineapple cake with a coconut & cream filling. From what I hear it was delightful!! In class our assignment was a rainbow =) so I had to prepare a 5 different colors of icing to create the design. I was actually really happy with the way the colors came out (especially compared to some of my other classmates). I feel like I've got the "starring" technique down pretty well. One thing I learned in glass was how to transfer a design from paper ontop the cake using wax paper and piping gel- and it was really easy. I'm looking forward to trying out some other designs in the near future.

Now onto the yummy goodness that I'm most excited about. Josh had found a recipe at his parents house the other day and he snatched it and asked me to make it. Best part is... It's made with box mix. They are called Black&White Brownie Cupcakes. They are made by using the Dark Chocolate Ghiradelli Brownie Mix and baking them as cupcakes & then putting a cream cheese mixture ontop before cooking. Anyways... here are these delish treats!!

Well that's all the sweets I've got for now. But I'll be sure to share more as I make them!
