It's the 40th birthday of the zoo I work at and there's a staff party next week - with a baking competition I've said I'd enter and I haven't baked in ages! Trying to think of something fun and animal-related.
OK, I said three weeks ago that I was going to post my new burger bun recipe on my blog, and it's taken until today for me to actually do it Still, on the positive side, the three weeks in between gave me plenty opportunity to try the recipe again, and it's giving me nice, consistent results and was easily adapted to hot dog rolls as well I haven't tried, but I'd hazard a guess that it'd be easily adapted for submarine rolls too. And hopefully it won't be another six months before I update the blog again...fingers crossed, some piadine will be on the menu tonight and if successful then they'll be my next blog entry.
I've recently done a quite a few posts on food - mainly university meals, but some baking, and have started a few restaurant reviews too (although they're not posted). Hope its okay for me to write this here, I'm not too sure!
Today I wrote about my quest to design a healthier brownie recipe, and there's a seperate post (also today) about stir-frying.

Frosting is much much harder than it looks on youtube!! I've only ever managed to get a smooth covering twice, EVER!
Thanks! The video I saw last time showed a guy who frosted a cake perfectly (super smooth surfaces and neat edges) in less than a minute. On the other hand, it took me at least half an hour to finish frosting this cake.

These are my most recent cupcakes for a friend's charity event. The little logos are edible however I didn't make those, however I did make the little footballs and flowers!
Looking good. Do you use just a regular star tip for the rose swirl effect? Whenever I attempt it it just looks like a regular cupcake swirl but a bit backwards ><
on the subject of cupcakes, here are my favourite creations so far =D
