Bring it on 2016!

31 Dec

If you asked me a year ago if I thought I’d be where I am today, I probably would have laughed at you. If you told me I’d be making plans and designs for a fabulous couple’s wedding cake, I never would have believed you. If you told me I’d make a beer bucket cake using modeling chocolate and isomalt, once again, I’d think you were out of your mind!

…But I did ALL of that!!

2015 was the year I rediscovered how much I truly enjoy the art of baking. Cakes, cookies, pies, pastries, you name it! 2015 was also the year I got to marry the love of my life, go on an AMAZING honeymoon and share all my experiences with my biggest fan, my husband.

Here’s a little collection of my favorite highlights from 2015:

Don’t let me fool you, there were many ovens slammed, spatulas thrown and fondant crumbled, but I learned A LOT:

  • Maracons will decide when they want to be perfected. If it’s raining, they may decide that they don’t want to rise. If it’s sunny, they may decide to be hollow inside. I’ll get there, I will be in charge of the maracons in 2016!
  • FunFetti is my FAVORITE
  • Cheesecake is my nemesis
  • Isomalt is SO MUCH FUN! Tricky, but fun to experiment with!
  • Snowmen are not as easy as they look
  • Be CrEaTiVe
  • Vodka is a bakers best friend… when painting a cake of course!

Get ready 2016, I’m coming for you!

I hope you’re all hungry!

Bridal Shower

Last weekend my amazing Mom put together a BEAUTIFUL Bridal Shower for me at Valbella Restaurant in Midtown Manhattan. Besides gathering all of my favorite people in one place, the food was to die for, the weather was fabulous and of course dessert was melt in your mouth! Once again, Madison Lee’s Cakes made mini funfetti cupcakes that were so addicting, you lost count of how many you ate! I can’t express enough gratitude to everyone that came out and for all of the wonderful gifts Rob and I received. While a little off topic from baking, it was such a wonderful day that I had to share!
