Beaker Cake Pops

Christmas is over but the celebrations haven't quite ceased at our house, Boxing Day is my husband's birthday!  I usually make him a cake but when I saw these done by Bakerella I couldn't resist trying them.  According to my hubby his nickname in high school was Beaker so I thought that these would be a great surprise for him.  He was definitely surprised and he loved them!  Bakerella did a much better job  than I could ever do so if you want to check hers out along with the tutorial click here.
Happy Boxing Day!

Christmas Cake Pops and Christmas Cake

I just wanted to share a few of the projects I worked on for the Christmas season.  I love being able to try new and fun ideas! I think my favourite is the Christmas Tree cake pop!

Pumpkin Muffins

Every year we host Christmas breakfast at our house for the family.  Usually we do a hot breakfast but this year I decided to make it a little bit simpler by making a cold breakfast instead.  We are having yogurt/fruit/granola parfaits, quiche and muffins.  By request of my husband I made pumpkin muffins that turned out fantastic so I thought I would share.  To get the recipe click here.  Merry Christmas everyone!

Bliss Bridal Sample Display

Today I was lucky enough to be able to display samples for brides at Bliss Bridal in Kelowna.  I chose to do four different cupcakes and cake pops.  The cupcakes are chocolate with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream, vanilla with strawberry buttercream, vanilla with mango buttercream and caramel apple.  The cake pops are red velvet covered in milk chocolate.  In case you are wondering I got the table from a local lady, her business is called "Found Vintage" and she has all sorts of beautiful furniture.  I can't wait to acquire another piece from her.  Have a good weekend everyone!
