Bobble Head Leprechaun

I turned my PTA "room-mother" duties over to Mason. I had some sort of idea that those Ferrero Rocher chocolates were the cutest tiny pot's of gold... and mini 3 muskateers would be green somethings.... and Mason did the rest... I introduce...

Not too bad if I do say so myself.

Giant Fluffy Cupcake anyone???

My friend asked me to make her daughter's birthday cake...

which was fine considering it is her pan, cake, sprinkles etc.

I decided a giant cupcake like this deserved some seriously fluffy frosting...doesn't it look enticing? trust me... my "taste-testers" were standing by...


7 minute frosting

3 egg whites

1 Tbsp corn syrup

3/4 c. + 2 Tbsp. sugar

combine 3/4 c. sugar, corn syrup and 2 Tbsp water in small saucepan over medium heat dissolve sugar mixture until you feel no more grainy bits between your fingers. Bring to boil until it reaches 230 on candy thermometer.

meanwhile beat egg white to soft peaks...gradually add 2 Tbsp sugar.

with mixer on medium speed add hot sugar mixture to egg whites... increase speed and whip mixture 7 minutes or until mix is cooled, glossy and fluffy.

An EGG Problem

I'm not sure how this happened but I suddenly get SO SICK if I eat an egg. I have tried over a month or so to test it, and sure enough everytime I eat one... just an egg, I get feeling so yucky. It will go away after a few hours, but man! So, I called the Dr. today just in case, to see if they knew what the deal was, if it was a common problem, and if there was some reason for it?



& FOR THE NAUSEA: (and because I'm nursing a baby still...) the Dr. said....
