Miss Christine...You make GOOD cookies!!!


For those who have pointed out to me that my blog is exceedingly boring, I apologize. However, when one's beloved is in the armed forces and he is at war, it is prudent to stay close and keep the home fires burning. So, in the absense of being able to gad about and have adventures, I've been frantically trying to get everything in order for my bakery.


So far I've put together several plates of cookies in a variety of combinations. I will see which sell better and perhaps cull the rest out. I've also made a plate of doughnuts and some cupcakes. My biggest problem is deciding what colours of icing to make....I know it's really just a visual thing, but I suppose I could make a notecard that tells potential customers that if they don't like pink (or blue or green or whatever) icing, I would be happy to change it. I need to build up my inventory of cakes, preferably the lower prim variety.


On that note, I was pleased to make a cake on the Duchess of Loch Avie's request for the delightful and talented Miss Kate Nicholas' rez day party. It was a bit of a hurried job, so I intend to fix it properly. As well, Professor Alfonso Avalanche was ever so kind to make me an animation where one holds the cake on a plate and eats it with a fork (or spork as the case may be). Far more civilized than smushing the cake into your face, as I was forced to do before.


So, with any luck, my bakery will be open within the week. I've settled on the name "Rosehaven Recipes" and I'm hoping my beloved will make a sign for me as he is so talented (hint hint Sir Edward! *grins). I am looking forward this new venture. I'm hoping to include a few pies as well and would be willing to try my hand at other items, so if you have a favorite item, please let me know so I can attempt to include it in my inventory.

Hmm...I don't recall that M&Ms were used in Victorian times...

*ducks*

Seriously, though, cuernitos, or Mexican wedding cookies. Drenched in powdered sugar and traditionally made with pecans, but other nuts can be substituted, and if you make them smaller they can be pfefferneusse.

::grins::

Here's a recipe with a picture, and another image with each cookie tucked in for a wedding favor in white paper.

Drat, now I want some...do we have any pecans?!?

Pfft...don't you get it, Em? Oolon Sputnik travelled through space and time, before winding up stuck in the Grid. He's got lots of great tasty treats from the future. He gave Christine some M&M's to use in her baking.

And why are you ducking? I was the one that told her that I had flea baths that were more exciting than her blog.....
