The Cakery has been postless but not sweetless

 I apologize for missing out on the awesome aromas of fall baking. But while I was working 3 part-time jobs, I was baking behind the scenes. Yes again in tradition – these orange cuties became puree’ and turned into many many yummy treats.

Among the list of fall pumpkin recipes were, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin butter and pumpkin soup. All of it perfectly delicious. I used real pumpkin puree and I still have some of if frozen, waiting to amaze taste buds with its amazing qualities.  So our fall baking did go – literally eaten every crumb and drop.

Yummy, pumpkin bread....

I was exhausted literally. I just lacked all types of motivation and literally went on a hiatus from baking of all sorts. I hope that this year I will be able to put my knack back into my cakes and baking possibilities. 

We had two birthdays during this break from cake (:-) just realized that rhymes). My brother had a November Birthday.

 And my mother had a  cool blue December birthday – which we celebrated on New Year’s Eve.

Thanks to my friend Sarah for baking the cake and rushing it over before the ball dropped :-).  So from baking to cake craze to hiadous…the cakery is still caking. We hope that you will be by again for some cake. Let me know what you would like me to bake this year. I am all ears, wisks and baking bowls ready :-). As always I welcome your comments and requests.

The holidays are over?

NEVER….life is a holiday…and even when it gets too hot to handle then you need to get out of the kitchen. Wait no get back in that kitchen. See it is January 6th, the Eve of Russian Christmas and [thank you twitter – @dominosugar]  National Shortbread Day!

National Shortbread Day January 6th

Perfect timing if you’ve gone into sugar overload and need need to cut back on the sweets. If you need a little history on Shortbread read here!  Domino sugar’s website {psst I used their powdered stuff by the 10 lbs – I make lots of frosting} has shortbread ideas.

So when you can’t take the heat…get out of the kitchen and plan your next holiday tasty treat. There are still more holidays and excuses to bake…Valentine’s Day, Easter etc etc and everyday is a birthday (depends on who you know). So Happy Shortbread Day!
