I have hit a weight loss plateau and
I am blaming it on all this baking.It could not be because I have no will power
when sugar (ie. choc) is around.
No, that couldn’t be it:-)There is just something about baking treats
that I find super relaxing.
This week I have a lot to share…
so pull up a chair
and try not to drool
as you make your way through
my past week of goodies…1. Sugar Cookie Bouquets
Random fact some of you might not know…
I have a small home based business called
I make decorated cakes, cupcakes, and cookies
for special orders.
These were for a silent auction at a hospital
to raise money for breast cancer, I believe?
And random fact two for ya…
I love to make these fun things look so pretty!
(I was told they were a huge hit
and I have more orders because of it)
2. Inside Out German Chocolate Cake
Ok, so a good friend of mine asked me
to make a german choc cake for her sisters bridal shower.
I started looking up recipes and…
I came to the realization that this cake
is butt ugly!!!
Definitely not bridal shower worthy!!!
And because I can be particular
(ok, some might even say anal)
about my creations being pretty…
I was on a quest.
My good friend Google didn’t let me down.
I came across this beauty!
The yummy, but ugly coconut/pecan filling
with a tasty chocolate glaze.
Don’t eyeball it too closely…
next time I will double the glaze
because I wasn’t happy with how it poured on.
But once it is on, you are stuck with how it looks.
3. Mounds Cake Truffles
Ok, what to do with the tops of the previous cake
and the leftover coconut frosting in the fridge???
Make Mounds Cake Truffles of course!
What else would youdo?
and for the sake of my diet…
I should do that next time around:-)These are so easy to make too.
Crumble leftover cake
stir in frosting
roll into balls
dip in chocolate
garnish with something pretty 🙂
eat lots and lots
entice your friends to eat them before working out! LOL!
(i would never ever do that last thing though,no not me)
but it is in response to all of my faithful readers
who asked for the recipe.
You guys always blow me away with all your comments…
