Doughnut time!

Life has been changing so much lately. Suddenly everything is different and I have been flung head first into the festive season. I am constantly running around at the moment, covered in flour, with chocolate on my face, just trying to fit everything in....and make time for some sneaky afternoon wines. 

I've been having so much fun working at 'Little Cupcakes' once a week baking treats and coming up with new cupcake recipes. This week I made pecan pie cupcakes which were pretty delicious. I may have eaten one or two of them while cleaning up after my shift. 

Another pretty exciting thing is that one of my friends is having a little baby pretty soon. Its so strange to think that a little version of two of my favourite people is about to come into the world and grow into being an adult. One of the chefs at work recently asked me if I wanted to have a baby anytime soon. I looked at him shocked and said "What are you talking about?! Im still a baby myself!" He laughed at me a lot. 

Today I had a glorious time making doughnuts. They are for a little project Im helping out with. They really are pretty delicious. I was so excited to cover them in sprinkles and take some photos. Im pretty happy with how they turned out and I'm looking forward to trying out a few different variations and coming up with new flavours.  

Work has recently handed over the responsibility of the 'official macaroon maker of the hotel.' This is wonderful and frustrating all at once. Who knew that a tiny cookie could bring so much joy and fear? The days I make huge batches of them, I look forward to so much, but when I put them in the oven I silent prayers of "Please do not crack! Please form proper feet! Please please work!"

Today is my day off and I have 100 recipes to practice and ideas to work on, so I must depart. I promise to put up a doughnut recipe soon. 

Much love to all my readers!
