Make sure when you say it - you say it like "holla!" Its more fun that way! So I'm slowly starting to add breads into the mix... once I realized I could make challah, I felt I could make anything! Its still a talent in progress but I'm totally comfortable with making Challah - and its a fantastic spring time bread! I've heard it also makes great french toast. Don't miss this bread - its a new favorite.
For St. Patrick's Day this year - I made a Chocolate Stout Cake that was delicious and rich and moist with a hint of Guinness flavored throughout. I love to bake things that are holiday specific, but sometimes I wish that holiday happened more than once a year! This cake is great on its own or with a drizzle of rich dark chocolate ganache. I wouldn't recommend coating it in frosting. This did, however, lead me to want to make Irish Car Bomb cupcakes for next year... A combination of a Guinness Chocolate cake, maybe with a Bailey's Irish Cream center and topped off with a whiskey flavored whipped cream. The possibilities are endless!
I also made, what I call, an American-Irish Soda Bread. It was deliciously moist, thanks to the addition of my favorite ingredient - buttermilk.. with a touch of caraway seeds. I leave out the raisins since I'm not a fan of raisins in baked goods, but they can definitely be added if it fits your taste. Again - I can make adjustments to fit anyone's needs.
Interested in a special groom's cake? This was a recreation of the Groom's dearly loved scooter in the form of a cake! Using an image transfer technique, I can take a photo and recreate it as closely as possible on top of your cake! This could also be a great birthday cake as well.
For the premiere of Lost back in January, I made themed Lost cupcakes for a group gathering. Using an image transferring technique, I can recreate most images onto cupcakes or cakes. Looking for Lost cupcakes for the season finale?? I'm not just limited to one show, either!
