October 2010 Vacation

I was on vacation and I baked, go figure. I made a few new recipes. These came from the 2009
Taste of Home Best Loved Cookies and Bars Magazine.

On the left are the Apricot Cream Cheese Drops, page 25
On the right are Thumbprint cookies, page 53, I can see where these would be very pretty for the Holidays
Both were very yummy!

                                                    If you want the recipes, let me know!! =)

Spider Cupcake results Part 3

The Next Day:  =(  Look at all of the goop in between the spiders...

I forgot to take pics of the final result with the frosting legs. I don't know how that happened....But they looked like the original spiders.

Spider Cupcake results Part 2

Here is what they looked like right after decorating:

Awww too cute!

Spider Army

Spider Cupcake results Part 1

That was a gooey mess! Who knew that tootsie rolls melted?? So here's what happened. My assistant and I decorated 3 dozen of the spider cupcakes from the Woman's Day October 2010 issue. You use an assortment of goodies to make them, including rolling out tootsie rolls for the legs. Yeah, Sunday I looked at them and the legs had MELTED OFF. Yeah that was fun. So we had to redo all of the cupcakes and I ended up just piping frosting for the legs. If I never see another tootsie roll it will be too soon, lol. But the plus side to this is that I have a crap ton of M&M mini's left, maybe I'll make cookies out of them! I have an email into Woman's Day Magazine.

Here is the start of the cupcakes:

I tried to make spider web's but it didn't work

Oct 21st 2010

So I was going to start my day making 5 pumpkin rolls and made:
thumbprint cookies (never made those before),
apricot/cream cheese cookies (new recipe, had apricot jam that was about to go bad) ,
sugar cookies (from scratch, finally used cookie cutters I bought on my Honeymoon in 2006 lol) ,
2 mini 3-tiered cakes (just bc I bought new pans and my cake mix was about to expire: see and
chocolate peanut butter fudge (not that I have ever made good fudge, but I had a can of evaporated milk that was about to go bad, but if this doesn't turn out then my mom is going to have to show me how to make fudge...she says she used to make it all the time...=P )
...but no pumpkin rolls!!! But you can tell I cleaned my pantry out, right?? soon to follow. =)

It makes Christmas Trees, Snowmen and
gingerbread men.

Dessert Bar Pan

Look what Hubby got for me!! =) It is a dessert bar silicone pan I used it once, but didn't have enough spray for the pan so some of the brownies got stuck. But they were still good! Can't wait to try again!

It's Pumpkin Roll time!

Mmmm you know you are Jealous...and I am sad bc I ate it
And sold 4!! I will be making more probably this weekend if you know anyone who wants one! =)
I'm glad pumpkin is back on the shelf.

Mini maple cupcakes

I was researching Cake Pops on Bakerella's website and stumbled acroos the recipe of the day, Mini Maple Pancake Muffins. They were pretty good, I don't usually have pure maple syrup, but I had it from the Carrot Cake I made in August. They tasted more like a muffin than a pancake.

Here are the rest of the cupcakes. =) Chocolate and Yellow.

Sept 25th 2010 part one
