It's the Holiday Season now, and as usual I'm busy baking cookies for friends and teachers. I decided to make Snow Flake Sugar cookies, Oatmeal Cranberry cookies, Chocolate Mint Sandwiches cookie, and Snicker doodles. I went to Michael Store and saw this box from Martha Stewart that I loved .. it was beautiful and so elegant. It was perfect for the Christmas present. As a finishing touch, I put a small Nutcracker in there ...Perfect!. Here are pictures of my cookies..
My friend, Dewi was in town to visit me. She came to San Francisco from Indonesia with her husband Aswin and her daughter Tiffany. We went to the same school from elementary until High School and have been friends ever since.. I was so happy that she came. We decided to take a French Macaroon class. We took the class at Bonbini baking located at 542 Brannan St. It was a private class, so we were the only ones there so we could spend more time with our teacher Thip Nam. She was a very nice lady who was very patient with us. She taught us how to make Italian Macaroons and French Macaroons. The difference between French Macaroons and Italian Macaroons is the end result and the amount of work too. Italian Macaroons are more complicated than French Macaroons, but you will have a nice and smooth finish. We had so much fun at the class, and I hope to do it again someday soon. Thanks to Thip...You should check out her blog and facebook for class info, just look for Bonbini..
I am a mother of three terrific kids, a wife, and a woman who love to bake. On June 2009, I started a decorating class and since then, I have loved baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes. Besides taking the classes, I learned from all sorts of terrific decorating books, and also from other bloggers. I also make jewelry and do some art projects. If I had the time, I would love to do quilting, painting and knitting. My friends keep telling me to start a blog and share my creations and recipes. Now, I have a chance to do it and I hope you enjoy my blog.
