Just Popping in for a Moment…

latte al cioccolato/chocolate

No recipe today….

In fact, I wasn’t going to post today. But, my Cheese Enchilada Casserole picture was so heinous, I couldn’t stomach keeping as the pic my visitors experienced any longer than needed.

As the weekend fast approaches, I am (happily) running around trying to finish treat boxes for a friend’s outing. Remember Annette? She is not only one of my best friend, but also one of my best clients! She had a wonderful party a couple of years ago for which I did the desserts. Last year, she asked me for something fun to bring to her family in New Orleans, so I made her giant cookie pops. Then, this year, I dropped off the Candy Apple Vanilla Bean Cupcakes for her birthday. As far as parties, she and her husband are attending Alumni Ball this weekend. The theme is Mardi Gras and she wants treats for the guests at her tables.

I did an example for her, based on our initial discussion.

Due to time restraints and limited retail sale of chocolate transfer supplies here in Atlanta, I made some changes since the sample. While the lollipop will remain, with a mix of Fleur de Lis and football ribbon (since she is a Saints fan), the candies will look something like this…

The paisley is caramel and the Fleur de Lis is truffle, while the other two pieces are solid.

I am pretty excited the way they turned out, and will be stoked when I wrap these boxes up tomorrow for Friday delivery.

Other news? I am interning two days a week at a local cupcakerie, starting next week. Its exciting on several levels. (One), obviously …baking! Experience! And, a Chef who is willing to dialog, teach, and learn from the opportunity. (Two) it will get me on some kind of schedule, forcing me out of the house. This not having a job thing? Totally blows. So, while I continue to look, this internship will be a welcome few hours each week.

That’s it for now. There is other stuff, but like last night, I am up late and need to be asleep.
