Sugar Flowers!!

Hello Guys,

Hope your all well and enjoying the weekend.

Today I am going to tell you about a sugar flower course I went on to imrove my skills. Sugar flowers were my demons. I have memories of trying to make orchids out of flower paste at college in the 90’s and nearly ending up in tears as the paste kept falling through the wire or the petals breaking as soon as they had dried.

I happened to get talking to a fellow tutor at college about sugar flowers and she told me she absoloutly loves making them. Also that she holds private lessons at her house with the other cake decorating teacher. So at a very reasonable £120 for four, three hour sessions I decided to go for it.

We made the following flowers; African Corn lilly, Iris, Poppies, Gerberas and Roses.

I learnt so much and now have the confidence to make flowers again. A big thank you to Rachel and Pauline for making sugar flowers fun.

If your interested contact them on http://www.prdesignacake.com

I have a few new and exciting cake orders coming up in the next few weeks so if you dont hear from me its not because I dont love you anymore. You will however get to see my creations…that is of course they all go to plan.

Take care

The hot chocolate kit.

Hello folks,

Tonight I’m going to tell you about an idea I had for the May Royton market. Alas it didnt really go down too well..I fact I sold none!! A good friend pointed out it probably wasn’t the best time of year to try and sell them, I think she was right seeing that the sun had come out to play that day!! I’m not going to make any more until at least October then maybe have a few different flavours.
Well at least I made a few freinds happy by giving them a kit.

Here’s how to make them….instrutions will be included in the next batch.

1, Put your PJ’s on and turn on your TV in time for your fave TV show or get the DVD player ready.

2, Select a large mug from your cupboard then put aprox enough milk to fill that mug in a pan and bring to the boil.

3, Pour the cocoa powder into the cup, you may want to add some sugar you can either do this now or at the end after tasting it.

4, When the milk has boiled pour into the cup stiring to disolve the cocoa powder.

5, Now add your chocolate stick and stir it in the milk until it has all disolved.

6, Add your marshmellows then try not to drink it before you sit down. (it nearly didnt make it out of my kitchen I loved it so much)

mmmmm a nice cup of chocolatey gooey goodness!!

Enjoy and have fun folks
