jingle balls

When the shopping malls start playing Christmas music, I know it's time to start the Christmas baking. This time I'm starting with cake pops (also because a few people have already asked them. It's not even December!). 

These chocolate pops were dipped in white chocolate and covered a) completely in christmas non-pariels; b) sparingly in white non-pariels; and c) in shredded coconut. Simple and delicious.

For something a little different, these snowmen pops were dipped in chocolate and accented with fondant hats and noses, and finished with blue bows.

And lastly, these ornament pops were dipped in chocolate and then coated with different shades of luster dust, finished off with fondant ornament top details. 

I can't wait to see what the rest of the holiday season has in store for us.

There are only a few TV shows I've gotten really into. Like, "stay in bed all day and watch an entire season" into. Breaking Bad is one of those shows. So imagine how happy I was when I was asked to make this:

A subtle homage to the birthday boy's favourite show is represented by Heisenberg's (Walter White's alter-ego) hat and glasses. The cake itself was made from vanilla sponge and filled with cookie dough, sandwiched by layers of vanilla buttercream. Highly addicting.

The cake also featured meth. Lots of meth. Made from homemade, blue-raspberry flavoured hard candy. 

Happy birthday to a man of great television (and baked goods) tastes!
