As per usual life is being pretty hectic...... My sister just got engaged which is so very exciting, and means more menu planing which I really do love. Yesterday at work my head was full of recipes for a friends wedding which is also coming up soon. I could hardly concentrate because all my thoughts went like this: "Don't over whip the mouse otherwise it spread evenly, the cream must be at the right consistency, if I make 5 batches of pastry using 300g of flour per batch how many tarts will I get (the answer is somewhere around 70), how many lemons do I need?" You get the picture.
Apart from this my headspace has been filled with my silly waitressing work experience. If I hear "Cherry baby you're so cute, when will you come home with me? You know I love you baby," one more time....I will scream, or cry, or both at the same time. Three shifts to go, and then I am done. I only really put up with this kind of behaviour (although I discourage it as much as possible) because I am given free macaroons. Sigh.
The sugar cookie making is going amazingly well though. I have fallen in love with sugar cookies, and making them. I really can't get enough of it. I think I'm the only 22 year old I know that spends her last $10 for the week on new piping pieces, and gets excited when vanilla essence is on sale. I have however totally come to terms with this.....mostly.
Next I plan to move onto gourmet cup cakes, and piping techniques for them. I'll keep you updated either way.
