TGIF!!

Well, my coworkers are extremely pleased by my cake decorating hobby. So much that I was asked when I was making my next practice cake…so I obliged them with a TGIF cake after a rather hectic work week.

The admin for the Colonel asked me to make him a bday cake….this is HUGE! :)

My first Cake!

Just wanted to post a pic of my first Wilton class cake. It’s not really a template, but I felt a need to make an Easter cake using skills learned this week in the class. :) It was a little lopsided but it’s ok..I’m sure the coworkers will enjoy this!


Some fun things…

Why I need to take a Wilton class…

Here is a picture of my mom’s bday cake. I’m not posting the recipe for it, since the actual cake taste is questionable…I messed up on baking. However, it’s white with strawberry filling! Well, I tried…at least I put lots of love into it!

Also, thanks to jessesgrl from the What’s Cooking forums. I’d link to your blog, but I couldn’t find it on the forums. Anyways, this girl loaded me up with tons of goodies…see below!!



Blake Makes! PBDDL!

The wonderfulness that is peanut butter dulce de leche (otherwise known as PBDDL) came in earlier this week, and let me tell you how excited I was! How do you get it? Go to Blake’s website and sign up to be in Soopz! He is a foodie like many of the bloggers that are Soopz members, and he has a new product, which is PBDDL. In order to get the word out, he has giveaways of his products, and now I’m pretty sure many people are all anxiously awaiting it’s selling debut! (mmm)


Another bonus? He is a fellow NOLA-ian. Represent f’real!

With my PBDDL, I made cupcakes! Weight Watchers friendly cupcakes! Now these were flimsy, but there was nothing bad to say about the richness and taste of it…just take a spoon and go crazy! Mmm…

Recipe

10 oz. diet coke
1 box Chocolate cake mix
1 egg white

Bake according to the box recipe. However, halfway in the middle of the baking time, I placed mini Reese’s cups inside, and then let it bake the rest of the time.

The real fun is here…thanks to Allrecipes!

I 1/4ed the recipe though since I only had 1/4 cup of peanut butter to work with :). Delicious though!!

INGREDIENTS

* 1/8 cup butter, softened
* 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (used PBDDL)
* 3/4 tablespoons milk, or as needed
* 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

DIRECTIONS

1. Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
