Howdy Ho Neighbor!

Today was a bad day. With High School Boys, everyday is a bad day. The ones I work with are rude and immature. ::le sigh:: venting complete.

Now onto the CAKE!

I love to make try to make cakes. Fancy ones. You know, the ones that Ace of Cakes whip out with their magical fingers.

::le swoony swoon::

I'm all googahly eyed with these cakes, nay, masterpieces.

So far, in the past 5 years, I made some pretty decent cakes. For a girl with no training, I think I did ok. (Excuse me while I toot my own horn.)

My cake Resume:

Can't read my Poker Cake. ::Lady Ga-Ga style::

Poker Cake- Chocolate cake with Nutella and graham cracker filling (Made especially for my Kuya's 30th)

Get it? Sebby? Sebastian? Think Little Mermaid.

Crab Cake- White cake (The cake Sebby tore into)

I made him another, for the adults to tear into.

Under the Sea Cake- Pineapple Cake with macadamian nuts and cool whip
I did all the creatures by hand. ::toot toot:

MAC/ISH Cake- Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Butter cream Frosting. (Made especially for Irish's 25th) *My First Fondant Cake*

I need to work on my cake handwriting!

XBOX 360 Cake- White cake with Bavarian cream and fresh strawberry filling. (Made especially for Freddy's 30th bday)

So why am I tooting my horn? over and over and over? Well, this weekend, I made more cakes! I miss making them!
It was another birthday cake for Sebby! Chocolate cake!
Project Wifey Wife Auntie Aunt: Chocolate Birthday Cake:
(Adapted from
I used half white, half whole wheat flour. Mostly because I ran out. Stupid Bunelos!
And added a lot of chocolate chips!!


Do your cakes ever come out uneven? Might I recommend some cake pan huggers?

My nephew loves Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba! So I made his face :)

When I first saw Muno I thought, "Hmmm, that's uhhhh odd??"
But no worries, he's a sea cucumber. ::cue the Oh's::

In between the layers, I just melted some chocolate chips and added a teaspoon of frosting. Wah-lah! Instant filling!

Sebby loved it!

Since I had to make fondant for Muno's eye balls, I used my tools to make 3 mini cakes for friends. They celebrated birthdays this month too!


Baby cakes!

The birthday girls loved it!

If anyone is interested in making fondant, let me know and I'll make a tutorial!

 Do you watch any cake shows? Which ones?

Friendship with a side of Brownies

Happy Sunday everyone! How was your weekend? Don't they always seem so short? ::le sigh::

Last week, I got a nice break from cooking. My good friend Irish invited me over to her new bachelorette pad. If I were a single woman, I would try everything in my power to live here. It is SOOOOO freggin' cute!

It's a cute studio apartment with so many great amenities! And look at the kitchen... to.die.for.

For a one bedroom studio, that's pretty nice no?

She also has the pleasure of living with these cutie pah-tooties.

This is Benji. He's ADORABLE!

And this is Mango. So painfully shy but so sweet. My goal is to friend her. She's too cute.

Look, they're kitchen beggers like Sonic.

Silly dogs. They act like we don't feed them.

Anywho, back to dinner. I love Irish because she has the same passion I have for food. So I knew this meal would be music to my tummy.

On a side note, I always love her because she's a friend who adds positivity, not drama, to my life. I mean, the girl has this on her fridge. Don't you want to just hug her?

Plus, she's also a teacher (and almost a special ed teacher), so she feels my pain.

Back to dinner (my, my I'm getting side tracked alot). Irish made a meal from the latest edition of Deceptively Delicious. Note to self: buy the new edition of Deceptively Delicious.

She picked the Baked Ziti. Pasta with baked cheese? Yes, please.

This one called for carrot and cauliflower purees.

I had Garlic Bread duty...and snack duty. Note to self again: Buy these blueberry yum yums!

Benji stayed on begging duty. Tell me this isn't the cutest thing!!

While we waited for dinner to cook, we started the brownies.

This was her first time using her Pretty Mixer. I was honored to be a part of this mixing event.

Beginner's luck

Dinner was great.

Dessert was slammin'

But nothing was as good as our all night conversations. I didn't care that I had work the next day, I love talking about everything and anything with her.

Or maybe I just didn't want to leave her lovely studio.

How often do you make dates with your friends?
