I have it my hands!...Our first national feature, on the pretty pages of Where Women Cook!. Humbled to be on the same pages with such amazing talented women. I invite you to enjoy the beautiful pics of Gina Weathersby Photography, and read the story on how I started this small sugar kingdom:)
Two of my favorite quick and easy recipes are shared in the article!...Give them a try!
That profile pic captured by the super talented Gina Weathersby, makes me smile every time I see it:)
Smile, always smile...a big smile takes you places...and makes your life sweeter:)
Simple, paper thin sugar frills!...You could do them this way, or inverting the cake, and having gravity work for you. After the cake is covered with frills, you re invert the cake and voila!. I recommend that you only use the invert method on cakes that have been refrigerated for a few hours, and on cakes that have been layered with pure butter buttercream!
Valeria and Gabriel. The reason I was born was to be their mom:)...They were not happy about being part of the shoot!..specially Gabe, who hate pics!!!
Our photoshoot was filled with the most delicious cupcakes. My favorite Flavor combinations: Hazelnut-Praline, Toasted Almonds, Fresh Raspberries, White Chocolate and sweet Apricots!
Garden Roses painted with Cocoa Butter and two of my favorite and super easy recipes. Give them a try. You will love them:). These recipes are fool proof and forgiving, I love them and use them for my own entertainment. The ones I use for my business are long and multistep and need specific tools like thermometers to measure the temperature of melted sugar...yikes!
