Caramel apple cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream. The frosting took forever to make since its cooked, but it’s all worth it. Good thing these are going to work because I need them out of the house. Yep, that good.
Trying a new roll recipe tonight. I’m pretty sure I over proved the dough, but I’m going to continue. I was in a hurry and did a bad job rolling the dough out and cutting it. But, it’s a practice run. Fingers crossed. Recipe is from @thebutterhalf_
I haven’t tasted this yet, but I’m immensely happy at how this turned out. It smells incredible. After it cools, it will get a light dusting of icing sugar. Thank you, @kingarthurflour for the recipe! #bakealong
OMG! This arrived today and I couldn’t BE any happier (spoken in a Chandler Bing voice)! Dana and Heather, it’s amazing! I knew it would be gorgeous, but until I had it in my hand, I didn’t realize how perfectly fabulous it is!! Thank you both SO much!!!!!! 😘😘😘 @selahsigns @heathernicoledesigns
When you want something sweet but it’s too late to bake.... chai spice cupcakes from the freezer, fresh batch of cinnamon honey buttercream, and a caramel sauce drizzle. It’s not chocolate, but hit the spot anyway.
Great mail day, which I desperately needed after my work day. Thanks SO very much to @sue_babich , who located both of these @katespain layer cakes for me. You’re the best! 😘 And the pins from @makervalley .... ❤️❤️❤️❤️ If you don’t have these, RUN and order now! Yes. They are that great!!
Quilting finishes for today. The star quilt belongs to my friends Mom. The little snippet of the other one is a small table runner made by my friend. I didn’t take a pic when it was done. There are also 6 placemats that I need to work on.... another day.
It’s not strange to make 2 flavors of shortbread at 11:30 pm, right? I told the hubby I’d like baking him a treat; he chose shortbread. One is the traditional almond flavor and will be drizzled with the ganache I made earlier, that is still cooling, and maybe a little caramel. The other one is lightly flavored with fiori di sicilia, an amazing light citrus flavor that I buy from @kingarthurflour . I might make a simple glaze for this one. The shortbread recipe came from King Arthur also and is the only recipe I ever use. You should check out their recipes - every one I’ve tried is sheer perfection.
