So far…

19 Jul

I’m bad at blogging.. coz I forget to take photos, when I do I’m too lazy to upload and when I have it’s already too late. Then there’s the case of actually turning the computer on.. hehe! Yes, I’m so lazy that I can’t be bothered to literally turn the laptop on.

So what have I been up to so far?

Well… a few weeks ago  I went to a fondant decorating course. I’ve never used fondant and thought a short course could teach me the basics and I can take off from there. Here’s a photo of my finished cupcakes :

We just celebrated my little girl’s 10th month.. time surely flies.  So I made some triple choc cake pops (choc cake covered in white choc and then drizzled with dark choc).

So they’re not photogenic.. (I didn’t wait for it to set coz patience is something that I still need to develop) but damn were they yummy! Head over to this website for more awesome ideas http://www.bakerella.com/category/pops-bites/cake-pops/.

New Toy

8 Jul

I’ve been eyeing this baby for a while now and because I’ve always wanted a KitchenAid thought I’ll hold off as you can buy an ice cream maker attachment for it.. but then lo and behold it went on sale!!! Couldn’t resist… (eventhough it’s freezing winter here in Melbourne)

Bought the boring white one as I want it to match with our little b&w kitchen.. okay I’m safe and dull! The red did look good but I was too chicken to buy something so loud. Blah!

I’ve washed the tub immediately after opening the box and is now “chillin'” in the freezer. I’ve scoured the web for recipes for my first go… I’m so excited!!!
