Hibiscus Flowers

Haven’t had much time for posting my cakes and sweets adventures, as my desserts will soon be available at a new restaurant opening here in my hometown.  I will blog about that as it gets closer to its opening (we’re hoping for Mother’s Day).  Been a busy baking bee.  I will try to catch up when I have a free moment.  These are my new “Hibiscus” flowers for my Etsy shop.  I pretty much do them in any color possible and quite a few sizes.

Easter will be coming in a few short weeks, so I need to start thinking up what I will be doing for that weekend  🙂

Cupcake Catwalk

Playing around with different designs for some cupcakes.  Ideas and possibilities are endless.  Cupcakes make great favors for parties, weddings and other events, especially themed occasions. You can easily just go crazy decorating them.  Here is a sample of some of my many cupcake designs, they are doing their best on the “Catwalk”.

Easter Garden Cupcakes

Easter will soon be hopping upon us, so I have been thinking up what I want my cupcakes to look like on my Easter table.  Hmmm, sooooo I have come up with a garden trellis with little roses!  I made up some Royal Icing roses and decorated my cupcakes garden style.  I think all the pastel colors made it look so springy!

Sugar Shack Sweets

Here in Québec, we are celebrating Sugar Shack or “Cabane à Sucre” time.  My favorite is when hot maple syrup is poured on the snow and we roll it up on a popsicle stick.  Who hasn’t done that!  What a treat.  And the delicious sucre à la crème.  Wonderful time of year for these delicious sweets.  So, I just had to make a dessert that would honor our Cabane à sucre festivities.  I came up with Maple Gingerbread Cupcakes with an OMG sinful Sucre à la crème Frosting…one word about this frosting H-E-A-V-E-N !  I have to say, these are pretty darn tasty.  I added a pretty royal icing pansy for decoration since spring is just around the corner…or is it?
