My new found interest is to make fondant cakes. God it opens great doors, windows for creativity. I haven’t still mastered the technique. I’m a youtube learner, sometime spending long time jumping from one video to another…anyhow all I can is it is SO much fun. Moreover when it come for delivering the cakes, fondant cakes are more stable and gives a striking appearance.
Being a active member of the cooking club at work I have so far got to learn very interesting recipes from very many cuisines. Monthly one evening, we all food lovers gather together to cook, eat and goof around in a well equipped cooking school. I always look forward in learning something new every month….and guess what this month I’m organising the Indian theme. There will be 25 participants.
I have been happily busy since end of June with bbq, baby shower, meeting food blogger friends, friends from Finland and Austria….we have been enjoying Belgium summer with great chocolates and beers. I have never been a beer person, but there is something about Belgian beers, its slowly growing on me, especially the fruit and light ones!
Ok folks, until I keep enjoying with my 3rd batch of good friends who will landing this Saturday in Belgium. I will let you stroll thro’ the pictures from baby shower party, which I organised (Oh it was fantastic to play with blue and white). I loved playing with fondant again after a big failure from my first trial. I’m quite happy with the results this time, though I still need to work more on the fondants. Those butterflies were made using the fondant print and I left them to dry between the chopstick to give it a feeling of flying. For some butterflies I used single colour fondant and some I mixed few colours. (Be a baby and play!) The menu for the evening was carrot cake with orange flavoured cream cheese frosting, vanilla cupcake with mascarpone frosting, button cookies, Indian home made biscuits and lemon pineapple punch. Note, how to turn normal use and throw cups to pretty ones, wrap a fancy tape around the cup and top with some stickers, they were adorable…Also meet my old hobby crochet.
If you still on the sunny side of the world….happy summer and happy baking!
