Woah. My final little cake class resulted in learning how to make those roses. You know the ones- the ones that you would want on your slice of cake as a kid, but then when you grow up they are a little” too much”.
That’s why it’s good to have kids or dogs around when there’s cake.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love butter-cream.
Just not big blobs of it.
Now, before we get to flowery cakes, let me tell y’all what I have planned this week- (hint: a giveaway!)
Truffles. Not just chocolate, but fancy-holiday flavors…mmmm.
Cookies. My step-daughter requested soft sugar Christmas tree cookies. I just so happened to get three new tree cutters. Woohoo!
Rum balls. Last year, my hubby bought me a special snowman container just to store rum balls in. They’re his favorite holiday cookie ball. I can’t call it a cookie if it’s not baked, right?
Need something savory?
I make a Christmas morning casserole that’s mmmm. You can eat it on regular days, too. There’s no rules with food.
So, that a few things with a giveaway tossed in. Oh yeah! Giveaways are yummy.
Back to cake:
Yeah, I added some cookies. And practiced my flowers more. I was quite fond of this yellow one:
Wanna see my classmates’?
What a pretty cake.
The same day I made those, I made eyeballs for my upcoming gingerbread men and snowmen, Santa and reindeer cookies.
I have a bag of icing eyeballs in my pantry.
Hmmm, that just may be my quote of the day.
