Today's Special......

This morning, being Memorial Day, we decided to take the new puppy out for a short walk and to watch the parade. I've been thinking for the last few days that I'd like to do something a little different and something refreshing in celebration of the holiday. I've been looking through recipes trying to find something besides the standard chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. While I enjoy both those flavors it's nice to have something different. Last week I made Mango cupcakes with Mango butter cream frosting and a Mango/ Habanero chutney. They were quite tasty unfortunately no pictures maybe because they didn't last long enough to take any. Anyways today's special in honor of Memorial Day, Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. Easy to make, look great and yes yummy.

To my viewing friend..

in Monomoy Island, Massachusetts, with summer beginning we thought we would make a trip to the Island. However we don't really know anyone there and would love to have you show us around if possible. We would love to come down to the preserve and take some photos and learn more about the area. We have traveled to many preserve areas in the USA enjoying each of them. We do have two Labradors that enjoy the water, they do not hunt. Thought I'd mention that as I don't know if they allow dogs at the preserve or ferry. Give us a line if it sounds like something you could do. Thank you

First Real Sculptured Cake......

Today I worked on a birthday cake, my first Rice Krispy sculpture cake. I was asked to do a Pug for a cake so having never done one before I jumped right in and volunteered. I did my best and I did learn something new, like not what to do. Made the Pug and put it on a twelve inch round Black Forest cake. Sooooooo this is how it turned out. I don't have an airbrush and other tools like the big cake people so the fur part of the sculpture....well it speaks for itself. Eventually I'll get all that stuff and have better success.
