Orange Honey Pound Cake

I’m celebrating spring with cake! Spring in Texas is part beauty and part terror. The beauty comes from the wildflowers that spring to life, seemingly overnight, along the roads and in fields. I drove down to Houston last weekend and was dazzled by fields filled to bursting with vivid Bluebonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, and Buttercups. […]

  The Gallery has been updated with items in the Spring 2008, Fall 2008, and Cake Decorating sections.  Like this cake, that I did for a family who was celebrating the adoption of their granddaughter.  It was a special day and I was so pleased to be a small part of it! So, if you […]

  I decided on the dessert for my grandmother’s birthday.  She loves lemon so I made a Lemon and Vanilla Bean Cake filled with Lemon Curd and coated in Cream Cheese Frosting. For the cake I used a recipe from culinary school for Yellow Butter Cake, but tweaked it with the zest of a lemon, an […]

My grandmother is going to be 89 tomorrow.   I know, 89!! She told me, when I asked what she wanted me to bake for her special day, to just make whatever.  "Great," I said and smiled, but inside I was frozen.  What was I going to make???? She has no idea what leaving this choice […]

Banoffee Pie … well, sort of and other musings

11/19/08 – I served the pie from the recipe below and it was quite tasty … and runny!  So, I would not fold in the whipped cream.  I would just sort of smooth out the toffee and spread it with great care.  But, the taste … spot on.  My family, once past the initial trepadation of a […]

I will admit this to you, dear cyber readers.  For the last few months I have been a TOTAL baking slacker.   Cooking slacker also. Really?  Oh, yes. But, the impending holidays have reignited my desire to bake and fiddle around in the kitchen.  Well, that and a trip to Ireland.  Yes, Ireland the country.   I […]

Not that I really went anywhere, but I have neglected my blog.  Sorry. So, you may well be wondering what I have been up to in my absence?  Well, I shall tell you. First, I finished my Laminated Dough class.  I really did not enjoy that class because my teacher was less than stellar.  And, […]

Apathy and Pastry

The last couple of days have been personally stressful and to be honest I have not felt like doing much of anything.  Got a mean case of the ‘Blahs’.  I’m feeling slightly more motivated today.  Hopefully this trend continues. I did want to post an update on the reversed puff pastry I began last week […]

Lovely lemon pound cake, forgotten on my dining room table!  Well, you weren’t eaten for the birthday for which you were baked, but you sure made a tasty breakfast!  It was quite lovely, lightly lemony and not too sweet.  I’m sure by the end of the day most of it will be eaten.  That is how […]

Who doesn’t love a good muffin?  I know I do.  And the muffins pictured below are hard to resist.  Trust me!  I told you all about these muffins last week.  Here is a link to the blog entry that includes the recipe for these chocolaty lovelies.  You really should make them. I am so PLEASED […]

Reverse Puff Pastry and Party Dips

Fri, Feb 1, 2008

So, last night we made, or at least began making, reverse puff pastry. Unlike regular puff pastry where butter is enclosed in dough, reverse puff pastry encloses dough in butter.  As the name implies it is reverse of the regular way.  Oddly enough it worked quite well though the first three turns (I have two […]
