Cameo: Classic and Elegant

Here are a couple of snapshots of some beautiful fondant cookies that were made for a bridal shower (not my own shower). I am quite happy with how they turned out, despite the early difficulties I had. My favourite thing about this job was the fact that I got to buy and test out this awesome product - metallic silver cake spray paint! The colours I was asked to use were purple and silver, these are what I came up with. These cookies are classic and elegant - great for the girly girl in you! (Boys too!) See if you can notice the silver details...

Summer Update

Hello all! Just thought I should do an update, since I am rather neglectful. Though I have not posted in a while, that doesn't mean I haven't been baking. Lots of things have been happening this summer, mostly good. At the top of my list is...

I GOT ENGAGED! Yes, it's true! I am going to marry my best friend Joel, who has always been so supportive of my baking endeavours, funding new cooking utensils and cookie cutters, as well as the yummy ingredients. No date set as of yet, but I am so excited to start planning a wedding! Below is a picture of my ring, that Joel picked out all by himself! Doesn't he have great taste?

Next on the docket, I moved out of my parents house, to move closer to the university I attended (keep reading) into a house with my best friend. I know what you're thinking, "How could she move in with her best friend? It could be a potential friendship destroyer." but it's actually been great! It's like a sleep over every night, only we get sleep... sometimes.

Moving on, I would like you all to know that I am going to pursue my passion for baking FULL-TIME! Yes, Joel and I are working really hard to save for a fast-paced, fast-track diploma program at a private confectionary college in Toronto. I am super excited because that means I get to bake five days and forty hours a week! In turn, you should be excited because I'll be posting all my creations on here for you to drool!

I'll get to learn to make beautiful cakes like this one, made by a Bonnie Gordon Alum:

That's it for now!
