Mardi: Thanks! If only we could take our mixers with us on vacation A Canadian Foodie: I find that running hot water, especially closer to the opening helps, and then turning the mold so that you are pulling down on the stick instead of up gets it out cleanly! Gemma: Thanks! Becs: It was a great day for BBqing and eating popsicles Jules: Thanks, they were tasty
Rod: as a failed gardener, I'm extremely jealous of your harvest haha. This would be great with home grown cucumbers
Allison: I let it chill until completely firm. It took about 30 minutes

Fernanda: They are from wilton, you can order them online : http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=6D9E75F3-E9B4-8DD8-3B7605416BBBB6F0&killnav=1 I used the brown ones for my brother's wedding cupcakes. I love how they hold their shape while baking. It looks fancier than the standard cups: http://www.clockworklemon.com/2013/10/weddings-and-cupcakes.html

Vincci: Thank you!! I don't think I'm ready to do cakes for hire haha, these were an exception as a gift for my sister Kristin: I think most people ate them! I was wondering the very same thing when I noticed someone nearby taking a nibble from a petal. After they found out the peonies were sugar, everyone wanted to taste and see.

My obsession with pie crust and bright berry fillings continues, but this time I've merged it with my love for decorating desserts to make them special-occasion-worthy. After seeing some of Kelly Cline's beautiful floral pies on Instagram I knew that I had to give it a try for a Mother's... Continue reading

I used to think I was the kind of person who preferred pie with a high filling to crust ratio. To me, pastry was just an edible platform for that sweet, sweet fruity goodness and I assumed that was how I would always feel about it. Luckily, I was wrong.... Continue reading

I made Kougin Amann for the first time this weekend too! I used the Bon Appetite tutorial but didn't like how they added sugar into the butter block because the recipe called for so much chilling time in the fridge that the sugar liquified and made the dough soggy and hard to work with. Going to try again with a regular butter block. Yours look fab! I felt like the base of mine was quite dense.. not even as light as brioche so hopefully a different recipe will get better results. Checking out the food52 you linked too. This is the most delicious type of thing to learn :)
