Thank you so much :).  I've worked in pastry for a long time, but have just started getting serious with gum paste flowers.  That's my third peony.  I like the way it came out.  

 

That's only your THIRD?? Wow. It's gorgeous!

I had some leftover, runny orange/balsamico caramel bonbon filling, begging for a project, so it got married to some dark chocolate and raspberry vinegar to form a ganache of sorts, and 'hey, presto': Raspberry/orange macarons. I've yet to master the slippery little chaps, but the flavour is outstanding - won't last long around here

RWood Happy Birthday!  That cake is gorgeous!  Just exactly what I’d make for myself if I had your skills!

 

Paula – what a beautiful macaron!  And the flavor combination is one of my very favorites.  I’d give a LOT to be able to taste one.

 

I tried out emmalish’s chocolate snaps recipe this week.  I’m making cookies for an Episcopal Church Woman’s board meeting that our church is hosting in May.  I wanted a recipe that made lots of cookies and could be frozen:

I took them to this week’s ECW meeting.  Everyone loved them.  They are thin and full of chocolate flavor and very ‘snappy’.  I’ve got some in the freezer now to see how they do, but I imagine they will work fine.

On Guam, there are many bakeries to buy pies from. But when you see this cheese pie at a party, it's a red flag that it's homemade and you better get a slice ASAP! Some folks also make a cherry flavor. I've apparently been on a macaron roll. I made mint chocolate ganache to go with green macarons. I only use French meringue to make macarons and they have turned out perfect every time.

These were a command performance (all ingedients supplied). They are gluten-free and everything organic blueberry muffins. For something supposedly all-natural they have a rather nasty chemical aftertaste! Oh well they suited the one who asked for them.

You know what they say... the customer is always right ;)

Absolutely. The recipe (which was also supplied) called for 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon. Suspect that is the culprit! Without that I think they might be quite edible. Might make them again minus the cinnamon just to satisfy my curiosity.
