My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.

My Favorite Recipes

I cannot give away ALL of my favorite recipes (that just wouldn't be fair ;) but I will share some of them with you!

Simple Buttercream Icing Recipe
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter or margarine
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3-4 cups of confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
2-4 tsp milk (the more you add, the thinner the consistency of the icing)

1. Blend margarine/butter and shortening until smooth.
2.  Add vanilla
3. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed.
4. When all of the sugar is blended, icing may appear dry. This is when you add the milk

***You can add many things to this icing to spruce it up; fresh fruit, cookies, candy....Just be aware other adding other liquids because it may make your icing very thin!

Easy Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
 2 packages of cream cheese, softened (8 oz. each)
2/3 cups of sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps. vanilla flavoring
vanilla wafers or graham crackers
muffin cups & pan

1. Beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffty.
2. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
3. Place a wafer or crushed graham cracker pieces into muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full with battert.
4. Bake at 325 degrees until edges are light brown.
5. Refridgerate for 4 hours or overnight (to ensure they don't crack) 

Serve them up just the way you like them! I prefer fresh strawberries!!
