What goes into making chocolate bowls

What goes into making chocolate bowls
Leave it up to me to mess up every recipe in the world... but on the flipside, by experiencing everything that goes wrong, I end up learning the most.I had seen these bowls from Stephanie's Kitchen, and decided it was a fantastic idea for my food independent study. ingredients: chocolate, and balloons! first, a giant bar of chocolate all the way from taiwan! and it's -special- grade, whatever that means. (i actually tried to pipe pretty lacy chocolate bowls first, but uh, that completely failed so i moved on. plus i don't like that pink fake chocolate.) balloons! tip number 2, after you have melted your chocolate in a double broiler and poured it into a bowl for dipping, let it cool before you dip your balloons. because although you are really excited to dip them and set them down like this... five seconds later you shall hear a POP and you (as well as your kitchen) will be covered in chocolate because apparently latex doesn't like heat.

A Lighter Pumpkin Cake Every week, baking expert Alice Medrich is going rogue on Food52 -- with shortcuts, hacks, and game-changing recipes. Today: Give the king of the fall a makeover with a lighter pumpkin cake (that just happens to be gluten-free), thanks to Alice Medrich. Pumpkin normally appears in rich pies or hearty cakes. But here, with rice flour and a hint of spice, it produces a moist, fluffy cake with subtle flavors. I’ve tasted it with every imaginable topping from frosting to whipped cream and candied nuts, only to find that a sprinkling of spiced sugar is the best topping of all: Everything else overwhelms the delicate flavor of the cake. How to make hard candy jewels Jo and I have been doing lots of projects over the last month or so for Little Jo’s birthday party, and I want to show you one of the projects I did for part of the party decor. We found ourselves needing some round gems in just the right color of teal. If they could be edible, all the better. So I did some shopping and some research and came up with everything I needed to make hard candy jewels.

Monkey Bread with Bourbon Crème Anglaise It didn't totally blow up my radar, however, until only a few weeks ago. I was celebrating a bachelorette with some of my favorite girlfriends at a too-cool-for-school Atlanta restaurant. We had already overindulged in one too many courses of food, but our waiter gently encouraged us to order the sampler platter of desserts. Never one to say no to sweets, I caved against my (stomach's) better judgement.

Hasselback Potatoes These Hasselback potatoes looks beautiful, don't' they? Here, I also added several cloves of garlic to these Swedish version of baked potatoes to enhance the flavor.

saucy's sprinkles (bloggedy blog blog): happy thanksgiving More than a few readers suggested that Saucy try to make the infamous turkey cupcakes from What's Up, Cupcake for Thanksgiving. Remember, it's Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend. Saucy decided to give them a whirl. They are, after all, super cute. Super very cute. Japanese Strawberry Shortcake, Recipe Japanese Strawberry Shortcake The Japanese do some amazing things with cake and pastry. They have embraced many Western desserts and made them uniquely their own in many ways. I love a good Japanese sponge cake—moist, light and airy, and not overly sweet.

Carambola Flowers by Carmen Sprung If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog! Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls This was our breakfast Sunday morning. Aren’t they cute? They were very, very good. It’s the whole egg and the toast combo all together in one nice package. Cupcake Christmas Tree My brother threw a holiday potluck for a bunch of friends and on the invite he presumptuously assigned me to dessert, pending I could attend of course. He assumed correctly on what I would be bringing, but now that I have claimed myself a “baker” on this lil blog of mine, I have a lot to live up to! I’ve done my fair share of cookie baking this holiday season, so I wanted to try something a little different. I stumbled across this awesome cupcake tree and the next minute was calling art stores nearby to see if they had Styrofoam cones in stock.
