EDDIE ROSS - Pink Ombre Cake

EDDIE ROSS - Pink Ombre Cake
Here's a cake sure to sweeten up the Valentines in your life. Pick up three boxes of your favorite white cake mix—or work from scratch if you have the time—along with a bottle of Wilton's Icing Color in petal pink. Split each box into two batches for a total of six, then add increasing amounts of dye little by little until you achieve the ombre effect. For the outside of the cake, I used a piping bag fit with a basketweave tip. Happy baking, everyone!

braided jersey scarf December 15th, 2011 So I am really enjoying wearing scarfs this year. I saw a tutorial at Put Up Your Dukes for this braided scarf and pinned it a while back waiting for a time to make it. Well last night I finally got around to making it! I follow the tutorial at Put Up Your Dukes with only a few changes….mainly I used pieces I had (salvage bin at Joann’s is a great place to find cheap material for projects where you only need a little bit!)

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. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar. I also had lemon oil and coconut flavoring on hand.. oh la la the value brand (which still works fine).

Recipe to Feed a Crowd: Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef There are very few foods that feed a large crowd with little effort. Tacos may be the simplest option for feeding a lot of people, and today we are bringing you one of our favorite taco stuffings: Barbacoa beef, tender and full rich, complex flavors. Yes, did you know you can make that tasty stuff you buy at Chipotle in your own kitchen — and in your slow cooker no less? I have a serious thing for barbacoa.

Kit Kat Bars Recipe These homemade kit kat bars are supposed to taste like the popular candy bar of the same name. They do have the nice chocolatey crunch of a Kit Kat candy bar, but these bars have more of a salty-sweet flavor than the candy bar. The kids tell me they like the taste of these bars even better. Kitchen Helpers I found these helpful charts last week and just had to share! Both of these beauties are from Chasing Delicious (aka one of the most fab foodie blogs out there)! Aren’t they faaaaabulous?!

How to Make Bagels: A User's Manual at Epicurious Making bagels at home isn't difficult or labor-intensive, but the process does take two days. Here's an overview of the basics, plus a recipe with more specific instructions. Weighing/Measuring the Ingredients Professional bakers prefer the accuracy of weighing ingredients, but if you don't have a kitchen scale, stick to volume measurements. For flour, use the scoop-and-swipe method: Fill the measuring cup above the desired amount and swipe off the excess with a flat tool, such as a pastry blade or an icing spatula. Garden update + Spring Herb Dressing recipe It’s a long weekend here in Canada, and so far it has been a great one! We kicked it off with a trip to Ikea on Saturday, on a mission to find patio furniture. We’ve been looking for weeks, but have had one hell of a time finding a set that would fit out the narrow window-door that leads to our rooftop, where the patio is located. But Ikea never lets me down – success! Today was an absolutely beautiful day in Toronto, so I took advantage by spending a little time in my community garden plot, and a little more time tending to the potted plants in the patio garden.
