A slew of strawberries!

Just pictures of two strawberry sponge cakes I baked last week for a massive order, which included the triple layer fudge slice and over 2 kilos of brownies. TWO kilos of chocolate fudge!! I felt like Willy Wonka…

These cakes were vanilla sponges sanwiched with strawberry filling and decorated with buttercream, chocolate and fresh fruit. By the way, anybody notice that there’s an awful dearth of yummy strawberries in the market the past months? Most supermarkets carry these Egyptian berries that are not very juicy. I have seen the occassional batch from Korea but they are SO exorbitantly priced and I refuse to fork out so much without knowing if the fruit is actually much superior. A punnet of Korean strawberries (about 10-12 berries) costs something like $15+…. compared to the Egyptian berries which are about $3+.

??!!!?

This was decorated with a swiss meringue buttercream flavored with strawberry puree…. it gave the frosting a very pretty pale pink color

This was my dance teacher’s surprise birthday cake. I liked the colors very much… especially the pastel yellow of the egg yolk buttercream

  1. i stumbled across your food blog, and honest to God, I started drooling. you’re so incredibly talented! there are not very many persons i know who can bake (me being one of em!).. and the stuff you make…absolute food porn!

  2. I created a new user, opened Firefox, and there are only the default bookmarks. There is an “import” function, but it only offers to import Internet Explorer bookmarks. Is there any way to copy/import between users on the same machine?.

  3. I’d like to be able to tag blogs I like and have them show on my website. Any suggestions on the best route to take on this. Any input would be helpful..

  4. I have a domain that is redirecting it views to my main site. I want to build a wordpress site on that domain but i cant access my admin for wordpress because it just redirects me to my main site. I don’t want to take my domain off redirect until the wordpress site is done. So what do i do?. It is redirected thru my registrar. How would i login with my IP?.

  5. How do I restore my computer to an earlier time when the “Restore” feature on my computer is not working. I have tried over a dozen times to restore my computer and I keep getting the error message “computer could not be restored to this date. No changes have been made. Try another date.” Try another date the same thing happens.. . All of my personal files were deleted from my computer and I want to get them back. Have no clue how this happened. Checked the recycle bin and none of them were there. It is as if they simply disappeared off my computer. Please help. Thank you!.

  6. WordPress is up and running on my host — but it completely mismatches my site’s existing theme/CSS. How hard would it be to modify/write a new theme to make it fit in? Is there an easier way to do this?.
