A Pirate's Life for Me - Arrghh!

I had the pleasure of making the treats for a fun Pirate Birthday Party! And it was not a child's party either Smiley This was a particularly fun order for me because I finally had a reason to use my amazing Silhouette Cameo that I got for Christmas!!! The Cameo is a cutting machine that works very much like a printer but that cuts paper instead. See those fierce little pirate ships to the left? Well my fantastic Cameo allowed me to cut out these shapes on cardstock and make some lovely little cupcake toppers!! Awesome, right? Smiley

I can't wait to have many more projects with my new Cameo!Smiley The possibilities are endless!! Is it weird that I am so excited over paper cutouts? I think not. It's pretty darn cool that my amazing bf can create an image in Photoshop and then my amazing Cameo can bring it to life!! I can see lots more cupcake toppers in my future. Did you have an event coming up that could use some delicious cupcakes with a custom topper?! I am ready for it, give me a challenge!

I really LOVED this order! It was so much fun to create the toppers and the X's marks the spot island cupcakes?! Perfect! I could not have been more happy with how everything turned out. I hope the party was a blast!

Anybody ever head of this?!?  Well the other day I was in the break room at work getting water and saw three bags of cream colored mush... Now I had seen these bags several weeks back and didn't pay much attention to them, but these strange looking bags were back, so I decided to stop and read the paper attached to them and saw "Amish Friendship Bread" with strange instructions like "Mush the Bag."

Well still not really sure what the bag of goo was, I went back to Google, and read up on it.  It is similar to a chain letter, in the sense that once you get it, you must pass 3 more along.  So this bag of mush is really an active yeast mixture that is supposedly passed down from generation to generation steaming only from the Amish. Now I don't know how true this is, but it has definitely been circulating around my office for a month or so now.  Even after reading of…

Pandan Coconut Ice Cream

Pandan, have you ever heard of it? Growing up, I ate many sweets flavored with Pandan, although I didn't really learn what it was until my early 20s. It is a common flavor used in Southeast Asian desserts, similarly to how Vanilla is used in most American baked goods. If you have ever been into an Asian bakery and seen bright green cakes and such, that gorgeous green hue is attributable to Pandan. I ate many green desserts as a child but honestly never knew what that distinct flavor was and always just thought the green color was from food coloring to make things more exciting.

However, in my adult years I started to see trendy Asian restaurants serving Pandan flavored desserts, and not until then did I realize I had been eating Pandan my whole life. My sister and I started to become obsessed with ordering beignets with pandan ice cream at one of our local sushi restaurants in Houston. Now that I live in Austin, I don't get to enjoy those delicious pillowy beignets and ice cre…
