New Years Resolution :)

I'm not to into resolutions. Mostly because I could never keep them, but this year is different. This year is my year!

Receiving 2010 was an eye opener for me. It was also one of the saddest Christmas ever, which is why my resolution was to spend this Christmas with my family.

It was great!! We had an awesome time. Unbelievable as it may be, there are no pictures and I blame that on the contractions that bugged me... and still are.

So this year resolution is all about my business... I want and I will take it off the ground!

I thought about it and even liking to do many different things I'm going to stick to Cupcakes and Cookies... for the moment. You know, start small and all that. I still have long ways to go, lot of practice are in order. And lots of shopping since I just found out today I'm all out of piping bags and my food colors... well they are NOT pretty any more.

So in the spirit of practice I decided to work on a new recipe, one that uses one of the most amazing spreads EVER... The glorious Nutella.... Nutella Sugar Cookies.
Now the recipe still needs a bit of work, but still I'm so happy with the result. Here is the final product :)

As soon as I finish working with the recipe Ill do a post about it, or maybe I should just wait till February 5. You know what's that day right? Its World Nutella Day!!!!! Yayy!!!!!! 

Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!

Baby Cake

I have been a bad blogger... over a month with no post... shame on me.

Do please keep in mind that I'm on my last days (fingers crossed) of pregnancy and I have been "trying" to catch as many zzz as possible. Not much luck on that. Oh well, I better get used to it right?

Any how... I do have a few stuff to blog about, I just need a working brain to sit down and write about it :-)

In the mean time I leave you with my first attempt at a big cake...

It was an experience, I learned a lot in the process and it was really fun. It was not 100% what I wanted, but is my first and I wont be hard on myself. I enjoyed the proses and even if it wasn't perfect I feel proud of the result....

I have to thank Gail Dosik for her amazing tutorial on Swiss Meringue Buttercream.... You have to check it out!!!

Please .... don't look at the smudges... poor monkey has an ear full of frosting...

I think I may do a tutorial for the animals... I adore them, specially the dog which is inspired on my girl Leia..

They look alike right? lol

Happy New Year!!!!!!
