Christmas 2009

Oh, ignored blog...
Here are few Christmas tidbits...

Crepes for Christmas breakfast.

Mmmm.... savory vs. sweet......?


Embroidered tablecloth I made for my mom's birthday.

Embroidery Detail

Roasted red and yellow peppers with fresh mozarella!

Coconut Meringue Experiment

Kahlua Caramels
(Finally successful on the second try...)

Ornament my dad and I made many years ago.

Birthday Yule Log Cake I made for my mom.
Meringue mushrooms and marzipan vines and berries.

Whipped chocolate ganache frosting flavored with cardamom
and lavender. Before rolling the ganache with the sponge cake,
I brushed cake with orange-flavored simple syrup.

This was my first attempt at making a rolled cake!
