How to Make Marshmallow Fondant This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too.

King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter - StumbleUpon Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate Quake Cake Maybe this blog should be renamed "Sprinkle Bakes Chocolate Cakes". I've had a serious romance with the confection all year. First there was a very special chocolate cupcake recipe for pyromaniacs, soon after came Chocolate Whiskey Cake, then Chocolate Gâteau on the Half Shell, Nigella's Chocolate-Honey Cake, the proportionally epicPBC4 (as I've come to call it), and last week's post was dedicated to the marriage of chocolate cake and red wine. I may need an intervention, but like most addicts I don't want one. I've tasted many, but this chocolate cake may be my favorite, ever!

raspberry white chocolate scones i decided this year i would make all my christmas presents. i managed to convince my family this was a good idea. so i set out planning the perfect baked good for each member of my family. some were easy and some not so easy. my brother, Jeff, is engaged to Miranda. i love her - she is fun, outgoing and just an all around incredible person. the only problem is she is a pickier than me - which believe me is hard to do. but i figured i couldn't go too wrong with baking. Miranda is a teacher and i figured it would be cool if i did some sort of a breakfast baked good that she could grab on her way to school. i was totally sold on my buttermilk berry muffins. i have yet to meet anyone that didn't like those - but i called my brother just incase. yea - she doesn't like muffins. he told me she likes raspberry white chocolate scones. raspberry white chocolate sconesinspired by Cook's Illustrated blueberry scone recipe 1.

Pumpkin Pie Bites I’ve been in a mini-mood lately when it comes to baking and these bite-sized pies met my big craving. They are really, really easy. Let me show ya. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I used ready to roll refrigerated pie crust. It comes two to a box and if you roll each round pie crust a little bit thinner with a rolling pin, you can get 24 mini pumpkin-shaped pie crusts out of them. Green Tea Chocolate Balls It's a simple recipe to make green tea flavored chocolate balls, using white chocolate. The sweetness of white chocolate is well-balanced by the bitterness of green tea powder. Yield: Makes 12 balls

Espresso Pumpkin Pie by Lura Lee I always get a craving for pumpkin pie as soon as the first leaves start turning colors or the first crisp autumn breeze turns my cheeks red. This year, I took my old pumpkin pie recipe and expanded upon it and improved it by adding espresso. It's a simple recipe using canned pumpkin. The purist bakers among the crowd can modify a from scratch pumpkin pie recipe accordingly, if they have the patience to fool around with whole pumpkins, but this recipe is for the majority of people who want the pie minus the fuss. Espresso Pumpkin Pie Bite-Sized Cherry & Strawberry "Pop Tarts" Sometimes it's the little things. Like being able to swing your legs out of bed and slide your feet into fuzzy slippers to shield you from the chill on the floor. Like shuffling half-asleep and blurry-eyed into the kitchen and having the sweet scent of freshly brewed coffee to welcome you. Like pouring that first cup of elixir, stirring in a splosh of milk and sandy sprinkling of brown sugar and then lifting it waiting lips and drinking in your first sip of morning magic. Let me go back a few months. We're talking to the end of last Spring or so.

Whiskey Cake in the Jar-O! Have you tried this yet? I'm not sure what took me so long to jump on the cake-in-a-jar bandwagon, but I'm fully on board now. I guess I was a little skeptical that it would work, but it does!
