Simple Wafer Paper Flowers

I had made similar flowers before using frosting sheets from Michaels, but wanted to use some wafer paper I had to make a more delicate version of this flower for a dear friend’s bridal shower. The only place I was able to acquire these easily was Bulk Barn, which sells them by the sheet.  You may…

Winnie the Pooh Macarons (tsum tsum style)

Pretty cute hey? If you follow my blog,  you knew the drama I went through a couple years ago in trying to perfect making the french macaron.  I’ve now been saved. If my love for E-town wasn’t enough, it grew even more when one of my fave spots in town, Duchess, came out with a…

Toasted Coconut Marshmallows

In addition to the peppermint marshmallows I made, I decided to also try making some toasted coconut ones.  The steps are pretty much the same, except instead of rolling the marshmallows around in powdered sugar, you roll them around in toasted coconut!  Oh yeah, and you probably don’t want to add the peppermint extract to…

Milk and Cookies Cookies!

Why is everything just cuter once you put a face on it?  These cookies are no exception, and I decided to make some fun cookies for a work craft/bake sale and thought these would be a fun treat people could buy for others (or themselves).  I packaged them as “Santa’s milk and cookies” but there’s…

Oreo Bears

How cute are these?  I stumbled upon these cute bears on everydaydishes.com and thought they would be such a fun addition to my annual baking haul.  I’m always a fan of something that is relatively simple to make, with really fun results! Ingredients are easy enough to get.  Oreos and mini marshmallows: Superstore.  White and Brown…

Great Eats and Treats in Ontario and NYC 2015!

This trip happened earlier in the spring, and I’ll admit that it took me forever to drag my fingers to the keyboard to write this thing up, because frankly, I ate a crapload of food on this trip. It was a great time of catching up with some familiar faces and stuffing our bellies with…

Mini Donut Cookies

If you’re anything like me, you probably subsrcibe/like/favorite/stalk a bunch of talented bakers out there. Or not.  Whatever. I recently had a go at these mini donut cookies that Sweetambs posted a tutorial on.  What is it about things being mini sized that make them so much more awesome? Seeing how adorable they are they were,…
