A Touch of Zest

Cakes, etc. 1 Comment »

I received this Big Book of Cupcakes for my birthday and tried out my first recipe this past weekend – Orange Rosemary cupcakes.  It sounds a little odd, but I love cooking with rosemary so I just had to try it out.  I chopped it very fine and it bakes in so the taste is pretty subtle (and is complimented nicely by the grated orange peel).  They were fun to make, look delicious, and taste pretty darn good!  I have a great microplane, but didn’t have a way to make the peel twists – guess I’ll have to add this zester to my wish list (wink, wink).

Going Once, Going Twice…

The Mount Baker Rowing & Sailing Center holds an annual silent auction to raise funds for equipment and program needs, so I offered up some “custom cupcakes” for people to bid on.  I wanted to provide samples since the actual auction item would be baked/delivered at a future date, so I made mini gingerbread cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  I used this excellent recipe I found online for the cake batter, but stuck with my own (somewhat improvised) cream cheese frosting recipe.  I used red candy-coated chocolate balls for the berries and tinted some frosting green to pipe the holly leaves with Wilton Decorating Tip #352.

One Tough Cookie

I made mustache gingerbread cookies in honor of the last day of Movember. I’m taking them in to work, but figured they needed some ninjabread men to be better prepared for the fight against cancer!

These Keys Take the Cake

Called ”Mr. Showmanship”, Liberace was well known for bringing a little glitz and glamor to the stage – complete with fancy chandeliers and candelabras atop his pianos.  We put together a benefit concert in the style of Liberace in Whitewater, WI last weekend, so I took the opportunity to use this fun little candelabra cake topper from Fred and Friends.  Mom helped me bake this two-layer, chocolate half sheet cake which we enjoyed after the show.

It was a Dark ‘N Stormy Night

Last year’s Learn to Row group from Mount Baker Rowing invited our Team Crazypants crew to their annual Dark ‘N Stormy party.  This potluck centers around a tasty drink I had not heard of before, but immediately got me thinking about how I could turn this cocktail recipe into sugary cupcakes.  I improvised a batter from scratch based on a few I ideas I found online (see here and here), but the mixture included dark rum, lime juice, and some crystallized ginger (mmm).  I then added a little lime juice and [too much] dark rum to my butter cream frosting recipe, along with a dash of black food coloring.  I piped this out loosely to form clouds atop the cupcakes, and added a little lightning bolt of yellow molding chocolate I had piped out by hand.  These looked AWFUL with gray frosting but tasted delicious – a good way to keep more cupcakes to yourself!

You should never enroll or opt to enroll in courses which are wide apart as you will be stuck nowhere and may have to manage things that you are not familiar with. In case if you are likely to get more courses you may consider to have enrolled in courses that you like the most, you should consider having the ones which are related or have similar content in them as well as same level and area of training.

As for example if you are going to attend the Business Management Courses, you should be aware that instead of aged care course you must be looking forward to get to the Diploma Of Business Management.

Further you should know that if you have to get to the top level courses you should not hesitate to enroll in the preliminary courses as they would help you learn things better.
