This rocks so hard! I love love love cinnamon rolls, but they always take SO long to make and I never have yeast just laying around...but these look so quick and simple. Yipee!

What a wonderful, fun idea! I can't wait until my little ones are old enough that we can make elf-spying wands and sweet dream wands and I Wish wands. I'll have to file this away as an awesome project for the future Smiley

5  COOKING / Dessert / Wedding Cake (image heavy) on: June 18, 2008 08:03:13 AM
So I made this wedding cake for a friend last February. It was tough...especially since I'm still scared to use fondant. But I think it turned out nice and she really loved it.

The top cake was three layers, with raspberry filling in between. I couldn't find a filling recipe I liked, so I made one up and it was SO good.

The bottom cake was four layers with the raspberry filling.

Here they are frosted all pretty. I love it that they look terrible without the frosting, but smooth and perfect once frosting is on. It took some work...

And then I stacked them. I'm pretty sure I held my breath the entire time I was stacking them. I've never done a stacked cake before, so I kinda just learned as I went. The bride wanted black ribbon around the bottoms, which worked nicely to hide the cake seams.

And the final product. She wanted these blue fake flowers all over it...which looks nice. I can make frosting flowers, but she opted for this instead. And, really, I'm fine with that. I think it took over 12 hours for me to put this cake together with the baking, frosting, chilling, etc. So I was a-ok with not making frosting flowers, too!

Hope you enjoyed!

I made a Yoda cake with tips from what average people have done to make amazing cakes.

Hope this helps!
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Pretzels! on: May 09, 2008 07:25:21 AM
I ran across this recipe a few weeks ago and HAD to try it. Last night was the night and, let me tell you, this is SUPER easy and so so so so good.

The recipe is very simple with ingredients that are usually on hand:

2-3 cups bread flour
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees, or about a minute in the micro)
1 tsp. salt

Mix all of these together until they form a ball. Start with 2 cups of flour and then add it a tablespoon at a time until it becomes workable with your hands.

Knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes. Let it relax for 5 more minutes

Meanwhile, get a pot of water and 4 tbsp. baking soda to a simmer.

Cut your dough into 6 pieces. Roll them into "snakes" and make the pretzel shape. Carefully, with a spatula, dunk the pretzels into the simmering water for 5 seconds. They should begin to float.

Take them out and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Kosher salt and bake for 12 to 14 minutes at 425 degrees.


I ate mine with cream cheese....so delicious.

By the way, the recipe I used is here: http://www.frontiernet.net/~albert1/crmpffs.html.

They would also be REALLY extra good with some chocolate melted on top. Yum!
