Blending for Baby

by: Blog Administrator on

It's understandable that we are becoming more aware of the artificial sweeteners and preservatives in our food. One thing we overlook often is baby food. We assume, naively, that since it's for babies, the manufacturers would take more care with their production- that's completely not the case. Those manufacturers are run just like any other business with only one thing in mind- maximizing profits. You wouldn't believe the low quality of ingredients most of them use, and the price they expect you to pay for them. Besides all of that, because of all the additives these manufac  ...read more

Cupcakery PART 2

by: Blog Administrator on

In the last post you saw just a few ideas for the actual basis of the cupcake and a few examples of how to put it all together. This time you're going to see a focus on decorations. Cupcakes with humor are always a crowd pleaser and a great way to start a conversation. There are many versions of TV dinner cupcake decorations, but this is my favourite combo: PEAS & CARROTS: you'll need RUNTS candies (separate the green round candies from the bunch and put the others aside), orange NOW AND LATER candies or STARBURST candies (cut into small bits), and green frosting of your   ...read more

Cupcakery

by: Blog Administrator on

No matter what the new trend is, cupcakes will always be a staple in the pastry world. Maybe it's the fun twist of frosting or the sprinkles..... There's always so much fun to be had and little things you can do differently even if you're using a box recipe (most of us do). One of my family's favourites is a black forest cupcake. Super easy and presentable for parties. Use the darkest chocolate cake mix possible, we normally use devil's food. That's the boring part- the fun part is the toppings. You'll need the typical Black Forest fixings- cherry pie filling, and vanilla frosting  ...read more

you can use coffee for WHAT?

by: Blog Administrator on

Coffee is such a favourite hot beverage that we've forgotten throughout the years its many uses. Our mothers and grandmothers used these tricks back in the days before modern conveniences. Keep one thing in mind- these secrets don't require the most expensive of coffee, just a simple pick will do- the idea is to save money and a trip to the store if you can. Whether you're an avid or amateur gardener one great use for your used coffee grounds is to sprinkle some on ant hills. You'll have to sprinkle a bit on all of the ant hills surrounding, but it does work. And a bit of common sense  ...read more

Fun Summer Kid's Birthday Cake Idea

by: Blog Administrator on

Kid's birthday's are always a blast, mainly because you get to give them those little details that you missed out on when you were their age. There are so many versions of cakes that it's hard to decide what to do. I suppose I'm lucky that my son likes the easiest to make one the best. Even the girls in his class get a kick out of this one. If you want to be the 'cool mom', you'll have to try this cake out. Just remember that this particular cake is more of a pudding texture than it is a cake, so you'll use smaller-wider plastic cups and spoons rather than plates and forks. One final ment  ...read more
