It's alway hard to start off with....let's skip the intros and go straight into...cooking, complaining, hyperventalating, crying and a laugh for good measure too hey : )
Yes, I do actually like to cook, but I can't say that I'm very good at it. But hey...I try ok? And if by using cake mix is cheating then fine, I'm guilty of that too. But isn't it better to do some short cuts to get a much better LOOKING result in the end? And without the added stress and not to mention all that time saved.
Last week I made this for my sister in laws baby shower as inspired by "Not Quite Nigella". Booties were made out of a cheats fondant recipe which surprisingly turned out pretty well. And yes, I did use cake mix. Homebrands Vanilla cake mix....hmmmm nuff said. The butter cream frosting was really nice and definitely made all the difference in taste. As for the booties, that was just for visual affects because it sure did not taste good (unless you love eating sugar). Anyway, it was a great day and there was loads of food (with the help of Amra, Prem and Kuny, they are amazing!!). I can't wait to meet the new bundle of joy!
I'm heading off to China for a holiday and my aim there is to try scorpian (on a stick preferably)!! Will hopefully get an oportunity to blog while I'm over there....mmmmmm scorpian.....and anything else that might take my fancy.....no....I am not trying dog!!!! I need to draw the line somewhere!
