Many of you may know that I also write a food blog with my sister over at Meat Loves Salt. Well, I’m excited to share with you today that we are having a fun giveaway to celebrate our official relaunch! I designed some foodie art prints featuring one of my favorite foods of all time — pho. :) They’re available in my shop, and you can also enter our giveaway to win a free print. If you’re a fellow pho-lover or foodie like me, be sure to check it out!
A few pictures from the day when I baked Dean’s cake.
P.S. I used cake mix + blue food dye. :)
Say!I like green eggs and ham!
I do!! I like them, Sam-I-am!
And I would eat them in a boat!
And I would eat them with a goat…
And I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good so good you see!
So I will eat them in a box.
And I will eat them with a fox.
And I will eat them in a house.
And I will eat them with a mouse.
And I will eat them here and there.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!
I do so like
green eggs and ham!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! :)
Some of you were asking for the fondant recipe I used for Dean’s cake, so I thought I’d share! The recipe I used was passed on to me from my friend Bri, who got it from Steph (you might remember the cake she made for Aletheia & Josiah’s wedding here). I think it makes enough fondant to cover a large cake? I didn’t keep track because I made so much…
1 10-oz bag marshmallows
1-2 tbls. water
1-2 tbls. white crisco (not butter/yellow colored)
2+ cups powdered sugar
1.Melt marshmallows in microwave with the water. Heat using 30 second intervals. Usually 2-3 times works for me. Stir between heating with a spatula covered in Crisco to prevent sticking.
2. Add food coloring* to melted marshmallows at this point, or just leave white.
3. Sift powdered sugar into marshmallows, and mix till it forms a dough. Add more or less powdered sugar depending on the consistency desired (don’t add too much, or it’ll dry it out, but it needs to be thick enough to knead like a dough). Knead on a surface lightly dusted in powdered sugar once it acquires a dough-like consistency. Add Crisco as desired to prevent hands from sticking to it or to soften it back up.
*I used Wilton gel food coloring that I got from Michaels. Apparently, the regular liquid food coloring changes the consistency of the fondant!
