For my sisters birthday , I had to get creative with her birthday cake. She’s not a huge fan of cake or chocolate, but she LOVES cookies. I found this amazing cookie recipe. I modified the recipe by cutting the sugar down by 1/4 cup and adding white chocolate chips. I used three cookies and fondant to create this little cookie cupcake for my sister :)
Today, some friends, my mom, sister and I went to a cupcake class at Bakersville in Mississauga. Groupon had accidentally booked us for the wrong class, so I had yet another encounter with fondant. Though we were looking forward to working with icing, we had a great time, and thanks to Groupon, the deal was absolutely fantastic! Here are some of the cupcakes we made :)
For our New Years Eve party, my sister and I baked and decorated a simple vanilla cake with icing and fondant. We modified the recipe slightly by adding a pinch of salt and increasing the milk to 3/4 cup. The cake was a huge hit, and the party was awesome after a week of sickness :)
I wish all of you a very very happy 2013, filled with family, friends, and fortune :)
A coworker found a great Groupon for a cake decorating lesson at Sugar Tiers in Markham. We had a great time cutting the cake, icing it, and decorating with Fondant :) My friends and I also had a great time eating the cake ;). These workshops book very fast, so if you do find a free spot for their workshop, you should all try it out!
