Newest Masterpiece

It's becoming a bit of a weekend tradition. In fact, I dunno what I'd do with a weekend without making a cake! This one is the first one I'm accepting a bit of moola for, as I've realized it takes me a bit of time to produce these edible pieces of art (and not *just* because I have perfectionist tendencies!). I may not have anything on the pros down south, but up here, I get to be the creative genious! I usually get just a brief outline of what they'd like to see, and then I run wild. Thank goodness for the stand mixer; I can just dump ingredients in!

On top of baby cakes, we created an amazing brunch with our friends this weekend. We all brought something, and ate like kings. The Arden Park had nothing on us. We had:

  • Breakfast skillet, featuring eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns baked to a yummy-goodness.

  • Chocolate Chip Pancakes, smothered in bananas and strawberries and walnuts, with a butter-maple syrup sauce.

  • Blueberry Crumble topped with cinammon granola with yogurt on the side.

  • Breakfast sausages.

  • French french baguettes.

  • Fresh oranges and nectarines.

  • Homemade strawberry and raspberry pop tarts.

  • Choice of orange or cranberry juice, and coffee or tea.
