Anybody ever think, "Hey! I should make 400 3/4" gingerbread royal icing transfers?".

No, just me?

Okay, yeah. Today it's just me. Lol

These are for market cookies. So I guess these are a little sneak peak.

These were also underbaked, then overbaked but yummy nonetheless. I will not be filling these. These are just macaron cookie shells which are delicious enough on their own. They remind me of the taste of cereal milk so I get a totally nostalgic feeling when I eat these. I probably haven't eaten cereal in over 10 years but you never forget the cereal milk flavor because that's the best.

08/23/2023

Just made an oopsie. I was making giant macarons which used a double batch of batter and tried to fit them all onto the same tray. 😅 One batch, one tray, I'm the idiot today. They will still be delicious though. 😋 When they're done and cool, I'll post a size picture so you can see a regular macaron versus a mega macaron. Share size, or not, your choice. 😆

Throwback to my youngest son's first birthday. I made a "stack of pancakes" cake. Each "pancake" is rolled and painted marshmallow fondant. The mini pancake cupcake toppers were also marshmallow fondant and they were drizzled with maple syrup. This was such a fun challenge and it turned out so realistic.

Today was my three year olds birthday party and he had a blast! This cake was a few skill levels higher than I've ever done but I'm not mad at it. Vanilla cake with swiss meringue buttercream and rolled buttercream moon, three, and cityscape. The cake was moist and light. The buttercream was airy and cloud-like. And this is the first cake I've put candles on because my son said, and I quote, "I want fire on my cake." 😅

A little sneak peek of a cake in making for my three year old's party on Saturday!

Tried my hand at sourdough pretzels. 😆

I have no words. I'm sure they'll be tasty though.

And for your safety, if you ever attempt this, don't drop the whole tablespoon of baking soda directly into boiling water unless you want a volcano on your stove... 🥲

Filled pic of the most recent macarons. These were white chocolate ganache. A few were also hint of mint. These had a very soft bite. A bit different texture-wise to buttercream macarons. Overall I was pleased with them. They still had a hollow space under the shell. I may go ahead and branch out to French or Italian macarons to see if I can conquer the hollows or do the smart thing and just keep experimenting with this specific Swiss recipe. 🤪 Macarons are so finicky! Hope y'all are having a great day!

Just a little counter glimpse. Got macarons, strawberry sauce, sourdough starter, and I just started a new journey, KOMBUCHA! I also make yogurt which did not make a counter appearance today. 😅 Gotta make all the things for my family! I'm like a micro homesteader with no garden or livestock. Maybe one day. Hope everyone is having a lovely day and thanks for watching as I grow and learn!

(If you made it this far, I'm on the lookout for a stand up chest freezer. Maybe an old one you have sitting in the garage you never use.)

I've been busy... More macarons! The blue shells were blueberry flavored. They were slightly underbaked and I think I broke the meringue so those were a bust. Just keep practicing though. The green and black ones though, a perfect batch! Not underbaked, not overbaked, no broken meringue, macaronage just right and absolutely perfect! I'm gonna fill these with white chocolate ganche and mint white chocolate ganache. Filled pics coming soon! (I'll fill the blueberry just because they are still gonna be delicious. Nothing fancy but I'll probably take some leftover blood orange buttercream and add some blueberry flavor to it.)

These will be $3 for singles, up to 6 macarons, and whatever flavor/colors I have on hand or $30 per dozen. With the dozen you can customize shell color, flavors, and filling.

If you saw my last reel, you may or may not have guessed what I was making for Father's Day. The answer was macarons! Now these were only my second and third time making them but OMG, so good. They were filled with a mandarin and blood orange buttercream. Filled pic coming soon.

Had a special order for beach cookies. The dough was egg free and so was the icing. The icing is actually made with aquafaba, which is the juice in a can of chickpeas. It has the same proteins that allow egg whites to whip into meringue, and no, it doesn't taste like beans! I was beyond impressed with everything about these cookies. I even added more definition to these with the raised wave. I'm super proud of how these turned out. So if you need egg free cookies, I got you!
