Treat Mom to a Tropical Getaway – in Cupcake Form!

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

I went to pastry school to learn the science of baking, but my true education came from my former boss, Milette Raz, at my first bakery job. When Milette hired me, I was hired as a cake decorator. Other people at the bakery did the actual baking, and then we finished off cakes, cookies and cupcakes. At the time, I was far more into the baking aspect of things, but this was my first job offer in the field and I was eager to learn, so I jumped right in. Milette was wildly creative, talented, patient, and caring. She taught me everything I know about cake decorating and cake design and how to work with different mediums like icing, chocolate, and fondant. Coincidentally, she is trained through the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating, having attended The Master Class at The Wilton School of Cake Decorating and Confectionary Art many years before.

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Springtime Brunch Cupcake Pan I might have to make Marilyn Johnson, of Pink Martinis and Pearls, a cape, because she just became my new entertaining supershero (she+hero=shero).

Granted, she’s a Sweet Treat Team Brand Ambassador, but she made the most splendid quiche for a springtime brunch using the Springtime Cupcake Pan. It would be perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day or just a get-together with the girls some weekend. But folks, that’s not all she did. You’ve gotta go over to her blog and see what she did with leeks. Yes, I said LEEKS! Seriously, her mind works in mysterious and wonderful ways. (more…)
