How to ship cupcakes Two weeks ago I was on the phone with my mom and she said, “You need to send cupcakes for your dad’s 75th birthday!” My thought was, “Yeah, right mom, how on earth am I going to do that?” Then, one morning while I was in the shower (I get all my bright ideas in the shower) I came up with an idea, and it worked. Materials: 1 dozen baked cupcakes about 2 cups of butter cream icing ready made dried fondant decorations zip lock bags pastry bag...
I love my job and would happily do it for free. Well actually there have been many times over the last few years when it almost has been but knowing it was a for a higher purpose, made it a no brainer. Should I make these 400 macarons for a new up and coming designer for her after party at the Spring/Summer Fashion Show?. Should I make them for free in return for advertising and inclusion in the “Goody Bags”?? Sure why not…...I have nothing better to do with my time, whilst ...
HOW TO MAKE AN ALL EDIBLE CASTLE CAKE The whole design is actually NOT my original. I have seen several versions of Castle Cakes online which I used as inspiration for this cake. I cannot specify one particular artist as this is not a copy of any actual cake design. As an example: I saw the carriage in a magazine – got the idea from that. The carriage is not an actually copy on the magazine and the maker of the cake was not specified. It was an ad for a fondant. So I improvised. Tow...

I got an email about a little girl who will turn 4 yo next week. If my The Heart Of A Cake Foundation could make a castle/princess cake for this poor little girl (sorry I can’t give any detailed information about her situation).

I was showing Sydney a two tone royal icing brush embroidery (that is a mouthful), and she thought the cookies would be a wonderful dessert to create for Mother’s Day. I must say I agree, the cookies would look exquisite in a clear top box with a blush pink ribbon. In fact I am planning on remaking the exact cookies for my 99 year old grandmother, she taught me my early culinary skills. I can remember when I was in college my grandma would send me care…Read the whole story » ...

Shoes are the number one accessory; women brag about how many pairs of shoes they have in their closet. Mariah Carey had Mario Buatta designed an elegant space with gold-leaf and bleached-wood floors for her stilettos. Although my husband has to share his closet with my left over shoes I do not have a special built room just for my shoes, I would not object to one! I admit I adore shoes, wearing them, looking at them, and shopping for them, so it only seems..Read the whole story » !htt...
