Baby Shower

Sep 20, 2011

We had a baby shower for my little sister this weekend, and I had the privilege of making the desserts. I thought I’d try to develop my painting with food colouring skills, and I was really pleased with how polished it ended up looking. The only down side was that it was pretty time consuming, so I kept the carrot cake pretty simple.

I made 2 different kinds of ‘thank you’ cookies, one with a little duck, and the other with a painted bit in the corner to match the painting on the chocolate cake. I learned lots about how to get a smooth, opaque surface with royal icing, and about painting with food colouring on this surface. I feel like I learned lots during this little project!

The cakes were incredible! Not only were they beautiful to look at they tasted fantastic. The cookie favors were adorable and such a special treat to send home with our friends and family.
Thank you so much Lisa – you are amazing!
