I hope my grandmother doesn’t see this before she gets it but I wanted to get a post up before leaving for the weekend 

anyways… here is a dark chocolate henna cake! 

I waned to keep it classy so rather than playing with colors I played with textures (the matte vs shinny) and piping chocolate always reminds me of henna so I used that as inspirations and this is what turned out. I freehanded all of it and made up the design as I went along 

This one I only had a few hours to make rather than a few days so its not my largest or most technical cake but over all I am pleased with how it turned out.

Candy Cake part 1 

Tonight I was able to finish the fist step of this overly ambitious cake project. I went shopping for all my supplies and managed to make all the fondant decorations 

the ones on the left are supposed to be little candies and the right are the tops of lollipops and the sticks are going to be made out of sour punch straws

Home-made SALMON PATTIES! 

these are super old school but delicious, simple and cheap. all you need is…

  • one can of salmon
  • one large egg
  • 1/3 sleeve of saltine crackers 

I will admit that using canned salmon requires removing the bones, this is actually simple but I warn you because it is potentially a bit gross. 

once you have cleaned the salmon mix it in a bowl with the egg and the crushed up saltine crackers (you wont need to add any salt because of the crackers but throwing in a little pepper for seasoning is always nice) you can mix it with a wooden spoon but it really is easiest just to dive in with your hands.

once all the ingredients are well incorporated, form it into patties and cook in a pan with a little olive oil over medium high heat until golden brown on both sides.  

One can of salmon usually yields 4 patties which is perfect for two people but the great thing about this recipe is that the ratios stay the exact same if you wish to increase the quantity. 

I like to eat mine with ketchup like I did as kid growing up and my favorite thing to serve them with are sweet baby pees, but mashed potatoes are really good with it too :)
