dD Went Earthy

I was so privileged to cater for Hines Property Management Company who’s always finding new ways to interact with their tenants.  A perfect example was their Earth Day event. They brought in various informational groups to educate the tenants on how to be sustainable and live a more “green” lifestyle. We had made cupcakes just to add a little more sweetness to the event.

I love how technology helped unleash innovations especially those that can sweeten up my sweet goodies!
Who would have thought of printing pictures on dessert decoration? And making them edible? Such an awesome idea smile

Round-up your [Cake] Balls… “ps. I know how it sounds.”

The most common question I hear from people who have attempted to make their own cake balls is “how do we make our cake balls so round?”

Here’s some tips and tricks for you;

1. Make sure you incorporate all of your cake and frosting together. I use the “smoooshing” technique. If your cake and frosting isn’t combined well, you won’t get a round smooth ball when it comes to rolling time.
2. Smoosh the cake ball in your hands first - flat like a pancake.
3. Then roll the cake “dough” into a ball.
4. When rolling cake ball with your hands I’d go with the “small” circular motion rather than the “big” circular motion. If you go “big” then you’ll end up with little spinner tops (like the kiddie toy).

ooohhh…and practice practice practice. It took me a while to make an actual cake BALL. Haha! I wish I had taken a picture of my first cake ball to show all of you…because it didn’t look like a “ball”. =)

Baby: Boy or Girl?

This is for all my “expecting” friends. I just got the opportunity to do a baby reveal cake for a close friend of mine….what an awesome idea right?


So how does it work you ask….

Well instead of finding out the babies’ gender at the doctors office, have them put the answer in an envelope and then give to me (hehe). I’ll then create the inside of the cake in the color of the babies’ gender. You can cut into the cake together in private or organize a whole party around the concept!

Yes! As you all probably have guessed, the pink color raspberry butter cream vanilla bean cake indicates that it’s a baby GIRL!

It is super fun and actually makes for a great party!
