Just heard a line from a baking teacher I thought we can all relate too, "Half of my students are artists and half are engineers. For the artists 'a two finger pinch' is ok. The engineers want a precise measurement, so for them an 1/8th of a teaspoon." Slightly paraphrased but made me chuckle.
Hope you're all well.
Thank you so much. They love it.
I know that they should in odd number groups but they want cake so I stopped at 1 more. It suffered for being rushed but I'm so happy.
Sue Gardener hope this works so you can see how fab Helen (not me ofc) is!
My first attempt following your class. Wanted to say thank you very much.
Are there any upcoming Fondant classes at the Sawdust location?
I would like to thank you for your donation to our benefit. We are praying that its a huge success and we appreciate your help so much!!
why do i always miss these classes
Hello. I am a former student. I would like to know where I can get a screen print for a cake. The place across the street from Hobby Lobby on 1960/Veterans is no longer in business. Any help would be appreciated.

The Pantone Color of the Year - Viva Magenta used in cake and baking in 2023


Drum Roll Please - the Pantone color of the year is

Viva Magenta (hum, ok)



Happy New Year


Note to self, sprinkle leaves & stars melt at 350, why didn’t I know that — geez!!!


Whats going on here? Don’t say anything about the 60 year old cupcake pans, they’re on my Christmas list🎄


Wait, What? Hum this may be a new favorite to bake with. About to try tomorrow and if it fails, toss the baked goods and gave a shot ha ha


Keep Your Cookies Crisp - learning something new each day


Now this a game changer - I used to line my countertop & table with wax paper but this is so much better and stays in place. Put a length of “Press ‘n Seal” to cover your counter, along with a second overlapping section. After your Marathon Baking it makes cleanup a breeze. Simply roll it up and toss it! 🎄


Looking for an amazing recipe this holiday season, we’ll look no more. These are so flakey & delicious I know you’ll make them many times. Better than the crumble cookie at Costco. I took them to a Christmas party and after one bite was hoping nobody ate the rest so I could take them home - really, they are that good. Thank me later🎄 I’m Making a triple batch using raspberry, blackberry and orange marmalade this weekend.

Berry Crumble Cookies (better than Costco)
Yields 12 cookies or 24 small cookies

1 C Butter (salted or unsalted doesn’t matter) softened
1/3 C Powdered Sugar
1/4 C Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Almond Extract plus 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 C Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4-1/2 C Berry Jam ( Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, or
Cherry Filling etc)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray the sides and bottom of a regular muffin tin, or mini muffin baking tins.
The Crust & Topping are the same mixture used two ways. Beat butter, sugar and flavorings for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add flour until just combined - DO NOT OVER MIX or cookies will be tough.
Press 2-3 T of dough into each muffin well and press into bottom and slightly up the sides. Do not press to hard or cookies will not be flakey.
Drop 1-2 T of jam into each well and top with the remainder of the crumb mixture.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan completely then use a butter knife the loosen the sides to remove. (No need to flour these tins).
I used stiff royal icing to make the Christmas trees and wreaths.
Store in a covered container for a week or freeze for 1-2 months if they last that long.

Note: I haven’t made them in the smaller pan so I would assume the baking time might be anywhere from 8-10 minutes. I didn’t use cupcake paper liners as they are not necessary.

Costco Copycat Crumble Recipe embellished. Filled with BlackBerry jam - sooo good. I’ll definitely be making these again.


All I wanted was a BIG piece of cake


Who doesn’t need a Cake ATM in their local mall


So you said you wanted to make hot chocolate for your family - will this work for you? How about this Big Buddy that requires a gallon of milk? (Not my pic)


Homemade decorating bag grippers made from shelf liner. Just make a triangle & sew it & cut the tip off so your bag goes through easily. Saves your hands & makes it easier to control your grip even with stiff royal icing.


Including your dog in your wedding cake?


S**g Cakes - it’s the newest thing in cake decorating, made with the grass tip. Whatcha think?


Question: Does anyone have a student attending Liberty University virtually for grades 7-12, or the School of Science & Technology? Could you message me your experience please?
