We can do it, we can do it...

We can help our Cinderelly. We can make her dress so pretty! There's nothing to it, really... We'll tie a sash around it... put a ribbon through it...
When dancing at the ball, she'll be more beautiful than all... in the lovely dress we'll make for Cinderelly!!!

Sweet Pea Baby...

So sweet! I fell in love with this cake this morning. I had a lot of fun with those sweet peas from Course 1, with a little twist... Making the center petal in white and the other 2 petals in a different colour, works really well! Give it try!

Duff Fondant at Michaels!

I had the opportunity to try this new Duff fondant the other day... quite yummy! Flavourwise: it is quite good, specially the Yellow Fondant with a very nice lemon flavour. I love that one!
It seems to me, this fondant behaves very similar to the chocolate fondant... it stretches forever!!! So, it is tricky to work with it. Not to mention adding colours! When you add colours, it gets really sticky...
But, I would say it is nice to cover a cake with. Also, the red fondant looked and tasted very good. I tried to go to a website, mentioned on the label, regarding instructions on how to use that fondant... No way! No instructions at all...
So, I found some suggestions by Duff himself: "Another trick of the trade: Have shortening on hand -- preferably "a very neutral vegetable oil that's been hydrogenated," like Crisco -- so you can loosen up fondant that's too firm. (Conversely, if it's too loose, use corn starch to firm it up.)"
Good luck with it!
