A little update!

Wow, it has been a hectic few months, as you can tell from my lack of blogging! I don’t have a recipe, instead I wanted to share a little something special with you. These past weeks have been filled with frantic phone calls with my overly-prepared-for-every-situation mother, whom I love very much (Hi mom!), planning, and shopping. Only to be followed by a 12 hour day of baking. But, I must say, it was worth every minute to be able to share our work with my wonderful cousin and his beautiful new bride!

My mother and I put together our first desert table, which I believe turned out wonderful thanks to my mothers artistic decorating style. I just did the baking. So, 100 cupcakes and my first fondant experience later here we are!

I was so happy with how everything turned out. This was my first time baking on a scale this large, but it was an amazing experience. Also, it was my first time working with fondant – it didn’t turn out perfectly, but I am proud of my first attempt. This really made me realize how much I enjoy cooking and sharing it with others, no matter how stressful or long the process may be. I cannot wait for my next challenge!

And the lovely bride and groom…

One of my favourite photos of the night. A lebanese tradition at weddings is to shower the bride and groom with $1 bills. Always a fun time!

My mother and I being very happy all of the hard work is done! Yes, this is my mother. Not my sister.
