The Helga Cake from the book...

... My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time. This is one of my favorite books and I know I've mentioned it a bunch of times, but I urge you to get it. Her story telling is great, her detailed instruction is wonderful and the art work done by her husband is lovely. Also, if you ever get stuck, she puts tutorials on her blog!

... and we're back!

My apologies for the lack of updates my beloved eleven thirteen readers (welcome)! I was in Ireland and it was amazing. I've been dreaming of going to Ireland my whole life, imagining it over and over. It was better than my dreams.

I'll get back to baking and posting soon!

One of my favorite bloggers and bakers just came out with a new (and her first) cook book; Sugar Baby: Confections, Candies, Cakes & Other Delicious Recipes for Cooking with Sugar. I was so excited to get this in the mail from Amazon last week. I decided to make the eclairs.
