Bake me some hearts

Maintaining a blog is time consuming and hard work, anyone share my sentiment? The same time spent dilly dallying perfecting my layout and typing my 'story for the day' can actually see me do more in the kitchen. The reason for my absence and delayed entries is because the past week has seen me baking to the moon and back. My obsession ( I know I have many) but this ones with the kitchen, sparked when I was about 8. My mum (not a fan of the kitchen) decided to enrol me in a professional cooking class to make her life easier. Since then, I have mastered the skills of clanging pots, chopping knives and unruly mess."These are life skills Adla, LIFE SKILLS," emphasizes my dear mother who is proud of my achievement, Thanks Mum for equipping me well and good ;). Having an advantage with those so called life skills, I conquered the home oven. A battle I solely created, fought and won. In my sisters words,' why bake when you can buy Tim Tams'. True :) I do buy my Tims Tams but still enjoy baking for mere pleasure . Here are a few snapshots of what I've been whisking in the kitchen . Oh and I'm joining in the fun of Jenn and Jacqui's heart tag, I've dug out a handful of heart shaped treasures from the kitchen.Till my next post Bon apettite!

Hot from the oven
Almond Biscotti
Mini Vanilla cupcakesDate filled cookies sprinkled with icing sugar

And into the jar they go
Centre filled datesMini cupcakes decorated with sugared fondantMmmmmm....

Heart to heart
Heart shaped butter cookiesDon't go breaking my heart.Mini cupcakes with heart shaped fondant.
More for the hearts content.
Heart shaped silicone cupcake trays.Highly recommend baking in them.More silicone trays
Disposable heart shaped jelly moulds
Heart shaped cookie cutter
More on cookie cutters
Heart shaped cupcake cases. I sell these, give me a shout for more details.
Heart shaped chocolate patty cases

If you'd like the recipe to any of the cakes or cookies, let me know and I'd be more than happy to share.

Oh Adla, please tell me you didn't bake all that today - I'm amazed. I don't mind some time spent in the kitchen myself but I don't think I have ever managed a delicious turnout like that.....yummy!!!!
Hugs,
Kerryanne

Hi There Aussie Girlfriend

How wonderful to find you and your blog, thank you for your visit to Wendy's World!

Mmmmmm how good one or three of your cakes would be right now with my cup of tea.

Love your memory box you made might have to check them out a little more and have a thing about cones at the moment!!!

Will visit again for sure.

Always Wendy :)

Gail McCormack said...

Oh yum yum, please I'm trying to loose a bit of weight for summer!
enjoyed all your photos, thanks so much

Sandi McBride said...

Just came in to see if you posted and gained five pounds while I'm here, lol...now how about baking something sugar free!

Adla said...

haha Sandi, I'll have to do just that gain five pounds.I have a problem of not really eating what I bake.its what I call "stupidity", hehehe any hu I dont really bake with much sugar but I think it'd be a good idea to be sugar free altogether.When you come over, dont worry I'll give you a good serve of hot black tea to wash down all the sugar. Promise!:)
Ta, Adla
