Iron Cupcake Earth: Savory II

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

My entire life, I’ve dreamed of the day I would move away from Maine, preferably to a city. I don’t like being relatively isolated, having to drive significant distances to get to anything interesting or unusual, and being years behind trends in food and fashion. Luckily within a few months I’ll be in The Very […]

Tastes Like Purple?

It’s violet season!

Scrubby Dub Dub

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Today I’m presenting my first non-food recipe. Actually, that’s a lie. It’s made of food. But it wouldn’t taste very good. Not in these proportions, anyway. It does however happen to be a quick and awesome thing you can make for Mother’s Day.

The Roses Are Back

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

As you may have noticed, I have a serious thing for eating flowers. I really like the flavors of certain edible flowers, like lavender and rose. Today I tried a hibiscus drink and it was goooood. That’s going to have to wait until I can get some dried hibiscus online, though. Which I will do. […]

An Advantage of Being Small

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

I’ve been acquiring many strange and sometimes useless tools and ingredients along my journey to pastry chef-dom. While I am still without a proper full-sized cake pan, I have a giant cupcake-shaped pan (which to me looks more like a chef’s hat – it’s not the two-piece Wilton one everyone is used to seeing), a […]

Lacy, Lovely and So Easy

Here’s another little lavender something I whipped up before my trip to bring to my best friend in New York.

Just Because

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

I’ll be writing up my trip to New York in the coming days – I’ve got a lot of pictures to edit and a box of the most gorgeous macarons to eat. But in the meantime, here’s a little something sweet I put together before I left.

Lavender Obsessed

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

This will be a short entry, more of a teaser than anything else. I’ve been in the kitchen making sugary concoctions, but won’t be able to post about them for a few days. I’m leaving for New York tomorrow morning to see the culinary school I’m planning to go to and taking plenty of treats […]

Pink & Brown

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

Oof, right now the last thing I really want to talk about is sweet things. I had a busy, fun day filled with friends and sugar. It was the first really spring-like day of the year and we got out and enjoyed it, and earlier Z and I shared a plethora of really good cookies. […]

For the Love of Chocolate: Daring Bakers February 2009

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Remember back when I joined Iron Cupcake and said I wanted a challenge? Well, that wasn’t enough for me. I had to go all out – I am now a Daring Baker. It took me a while to get my confidence up, and I’m glad I waited until AFTER those terrifying French Yule Logs in […]
