Cheesecakes

I love love love cheesecake. So the other day I was asked if  I could make one for a birthday cake. I had only ever made one in my entire life and it came out ok. So, I decided to give it another shot before committing to making one. I made one a couple days ago and it was overdone. The rim was puffy and hard, the top had cracked, the crust was thick and dry but the saving grace for it was the inside was still pretty tasty. That gave me a lil hope that the next time it would come out better. Today I decided to try it again and low and behold it was almost perfect. Had the perfect flavor, consistency, color was good, crust was good. I think taking it out a lil bit sooner will make it absolutely perfect. So, I guess I'm making someone a birthday cheesecake this week!!!!
Can you tell we liked it?

Busy day and evening!

Box Cake Mix

Today I decided was going to experiment making a teapot cake since I have to have one done by Friday! I want to make sure I get the proportions right. I had to trim the top and bottom and boy oh boy were they delicious. I usually don't eat the cake but I made a box mix of butter pecan and it was pretty darn tasty. I don't believe all cakes from scratch are the best because I'm pretty set on 3 for sure boxed flavors that there is no way I can get a scratch cake to taste oh so good! I like scratch cakes, box cakes, doctored up box cakes... wait a minute I just LOVE cake!

Chilly morning in Central Florida

Woke up this morning with every intention of working on some cake details, but it's stinking cold in the house. Did something happen overnight that we got blasted with cool weather? Don't get me wrong I love cold weather but when I expect it. My hands and feet are frozen and I can't concentrate on work. Making a gum paste wine bottle tutorial today, we'll see how that goes.
