Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bagels

Recently I’ve had a couple of interviews where I’ve been asked about how I got started baking.  It’s been fun to reflect on the journey I’ve been taking with food over my life and I thought I’d share a little with you!  I grew up loving food, but it wasn’t until we moved to Japan that my love turned from just eating to creating.  I love meat, carbs and sweets (my three food groups) and Japan isn’t big on baked goods.  In fact almost no one even owns an oven!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cake

I love when a client brings me a clever cake idea, I love it more when it’s a friend!  Lindsey from Frenchie Wraps hired me to make this cake for her son’s TMNT birthday party! When I dropped off the cake I got to see some of the clever things she make for the party so hopefully she’ll have it up soon so you can enjoy it too!

I love chocolate, and you KNOW I bake and cooking with it! I’m kind of a chocolate snob. For example I never ever EVER use chocolate chips when melting chocolate. They coat chocolate chips with something so that it continues to hold it’s shape when baked at high heats. SO they don’t melt as well and have an odd taste

Sunflower Truffles

When I was watching “Tinker Bell and the Neverbeast” movie and trying to come up with fun foods for the party I wasn’t planning on doing anything with the sunflowers, but there is something about flowers that just makes everything so happy and I couldn’t help myself!

These chocolate cups are super easy to make and look adorable (taste great too!)
