Summer to-do list: 2012

I have been on Summer break for two weeks and have had my to do list written out for about a month and a half. This summer will be different from all the others because I got an internship with a company called “Delicious Gourmet Cupcakes”, when the internship is over I will get hired on to help with orders and I am so excited to start this new adventure! Hopefully I will still have time to complete the items on the list 🙂

The list:

  • Make home-made pasta and sauce
  • read The Hobbit
  • Have a band of brothers marathon
  • make rainbow cupcakes
  • make a Lord of The Rings cupcake
  • make home-made cheese
  • bake a batch of pretzels
  • bake pumpkin ginger cupcakes

I have made home-made pasta sauce before but never pasta so that will be a lot of fun and hopefully tasty. My dad read The Hobbit to me when I was younger but I don’t remember it and since the movie is coming out in December, I thought it would be fun to read the book first and I also thought it would be fun to start a tradition of reading a JRR Tolkien book each Summer (last year I read Lord of The Rings). I love Band of brothers and have since I was a kid, I had a marathon a few months back but I have been wanting another one. I found a picture of really cool rainbow cupcakes online that I have been dying to make for months and ever since I started the cake decorating I have wanted to make a Lord of The Rings cake. Home made pretzels are like the best thing in the world, fresh from the oven with a little musterd….perfection! I used to make them all the time but then school took over so its time to make a batch. I have a recipe for pumpkin cookies that everyone (including myself…they are my favorite cookies) loves, I found a recipe for pumpkin ginger cupcakes that has 5 out of 5 stars and that is with over 2,000 reviews so I have a feeling these things are good..I need to try them! Heres the link if you want to try them with me! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pumpkin-ginger-cupcakes/detail.aspx

 

The Lord of The Rings cake I want to make, the tree of Gondor is on the top and the script from the ring is around the sides

 

As I finish things on the list I will blog about the experience! I hope I get everything done, Im gonna be busy in the kitchen this summer, I cant wait 🙂 

the rainbow cupcakes I want to make, they look like such fun!


What I’ve been up to and what I’ve been learning

I’ve been learning so much and working so much on cake, school finding time for friends and working out…its been a bit crazy! But I took a gum paste and fondant class which was fun and now I am taking a Gum Paste flower class which just started last week. Here are some picture of whats been going on.
