I have the best friends ever and it is even better that they are photographers!
I dropped off some golden goodies to my friend Melena from MSD Photography and she did what she always does and dressed up my edible creations.
Here are more pics from her photoshoot today.
One of my best friends asked me to make scandalicious cake pops for her scandal party. We came up with this great idea to bling them out just like the ones she saw at an event...so of course I obliged because she is a gem herself so here we go.
First, I had her send me a picture of what she wanted. Then I researched bling cake pop sticks and saw so many options. Who knew? I took my cake decorating material and got to work.
2. I took the cake pop stick and wrapped the bling around it to ensure I had enough to wrap. FYI it took me 2 tries but I finally got it.

I am currently working on a baby shower for a good friend of mine for this weekend. I am so excited for her and baby Carson :) she is the cutest little thing and I know he will be too!
Today I will be making her cake pop stand for the shower so I am off to get the materials. Stay tuned for the How to Make a Cake Pop stand post.
Photo below is just the cake pops in a vase filled with water gems but mommy-to-be wanted a stand and she's a hard bargainer so you must obey lol.

So I have a client who wanted to serve mini apple pies for her daughter's birthday so I made it happen. But boy was it some work lol. I got the best workout rolling out the dough with my rolling pin. They loved them so I am happy :)
Mini apple pies and vanilla ice cream with a cherry on top...so worth it!!

My first test included a basic vanilla recipe in which I substituted frozen strawberries that I let thaw. It was a disaster. The strawberries had thawed but were not room temp so the cupcakes looked great but tasted horrible and had a horrible watery consistency. Now on to the second test that I used fresh strawberries and puréed them and added them to the recipe which worked out perfectly.
So what did I learn, I need to test the idea of strawberry chunk cupcakes with letting the strawberries thaw to room temp, dry them with a paper towel, and chop them up. Then add to the recipe and go from there which I am going to do but until then I am satisfied with my fresh strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing. I am still working on the icing consistency since the fresh puréed strawberries made it very watery as you can see in the photos. Testing will continue and I will make sure I post the icing when I figure out the perfect formula.
