Okay, so I know it's not exactly copacetic to post on how much I want to lose weight and how I'm really serious this time and blah blah blah and then post about buttercream frosting. But I promise, I'm not posting on how good that shit is. How I could eat gobs of it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And then more for dessert.
Anywho...it was Christmas in October a few nights ago around here when my Williams-Sonoma order arrived. Flour sifter. Cupcake corer. And ...duh duh duh... a pastry kit.
I'm not even gonna fake modesty here; I was pretty freaking stoked this was my first attempt at a rose. So what all the rest were falling over, the icing was too soft, duh. And I didn't even eat
all of it. Winner winner, buttercream frosting for dinner.
I watched a bunch of YouTube tutorials on how to pipe roses and realized that my basic pastry kit didn't include a flower nail (nice oversight, WS). A small detail that was solved tonight after a 45 minute register check at AC Moore (those place mats were advertised as a buck and I'm not paying one cent more, ya hear me?) Besides the falsely advertised place mats, a flower nail did make it home w/ me tonight. And I was off.
