Lego my Logo!

While trying out my edible ink printer, I decided to give making chocolates a try. Practically anything can be printed on chocolates with use of frosting sheets and edible inks in all sizes and shapes. Here is a variety set of several different sizes, all with my bakery logo on them. I plan to get a business card mold as well to make life size business card chocolates.
Large suckers in both milk and white chocolate.
A smaller maybe 2-bite size chocolate.

There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.

Save the Ta-Tas!

It's October again. My favorite month of the year because Halloween falls in it, which is by far my favorite holiday. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. I like to do something every year in honor of bringing notice and information to women about preventing breast cancer and to show support to those brave souls who are living with it. I decided to make "Save the Ta-Tas", pink ribbon cupcakes, and dipped pretzels. Cupcakes are chocolate and vanilla swiss meringue buttercream with fondant decor. My husband, children and I will be joining in on the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk this coming weekend. I hope that everyone who reads this will be willing to join the fight and "spread the word" about how to get screened as well as do-it-yourself checks for preventing and recognizing symptoms of breast cancer, such as those found on the American Cancer Society website. We can find a cure for breast cancer. Feel your boobs; it can save your life.

I think this post calls for a couple different quotes:

It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. -Abraham Lincoln

The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. -C.C. Scott

and finally...

Never, never, never give up. -Winston Churchill
