Rose Ombre Cake

This past weekend I made my first attempt at a rose ombre cake.  If you’ve been on Pinterest for a while or in the baking blogosphere in the recent past, you’ve probably heard of this cake.  I made it for my friend’s baby shower, which had a peach and mint color scheme.  I looked at a couple different blogs/websites to help me figure out how I was going to make it.  (Completely Delicious,  America’s Test KitchenCountry Cleaver)

Here it is:

(Sorry the pic isn’t that great, we were in a shaded structure that had some light filtering in.)

And some mint chocolate chip mini macs, too!

mint macarons I want to practice making more cakes now!  🙂

Bread Galore!!!

As the most technologically unsavvy of the four sisters, I am finally venturing into the world of blogging.  This is my first post ever.  Woohoo!

So what has been happening in my little corner of the world?  Well, I figured it was high time that I dust off the breadmaker that had been sitting idle in our closet for over a decade and put it to good use.  Breadmaking has become my latest fascination (as if the Wu sisters need any more hobbies).  In the past couple of months, I have made thirteen items ranging from banana chocolate chip bread (btw, these make great gifts), pizza dough, raisin bread, French bread (which was promptly converted to garlic bread), to Focaccia.  Yum!
