Late Nights and Carrot Cake

Baking for Darrell was fun but also tiring. Grating all those carrots was fun, but then again, ACK, I think I'll put it through the food processor next time.

I thought peeled mini carrots would be easier, but it was totally not. Oh well =)
Ingredients, including the grated carrots.
I realized, I always get twin eggs when I'm baking.
I dont think that looks especially appetizing, but that's the batter...
After being baked and tops cut off...
You may be wondering why the tops are cut off, and that's cuz I wanted to make it easier on myself, and make them look all pretty and its easier with cut off tops. maybe next time i'll estimate better on the AMOUNT that the batter rises...

The next are the couple that I like show off my bettering piping skills =)
Yay arent they so pretty?

Then I sent them over to Darrell, and talked for a while, then another hour in front of my place with Matt. I could not fall asleep for the longest time but whatever, its the weekend soon so I'll sleep then.
Yay prettiness, but no more blogging until I get back. I'm so excited =)

Finally done...

AH, the Music and Arts Fair...MORE BAKING, MORE KIDS, MORE HASSLE.
Even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE to bake, its when its baking that needs to get done by a certain time, a certain day, that always bothers me. But I enjoyed it. 3 cake boxes and 3 hours later, I was finally done. Bajillion and one cupcakes =)

Then the festival actually started which was pretty fun. Lots of kids coming by and decorating cupcakes, and I was decorating as well. There were many Circle K'ers that decided to join in on the fun. I decided to brush up on some of my piping skills while teaching the kids how to decorate...or more like monitoring them decorating...

My first pretty cupcake. N is for Nina =)
Piping detail yay!
Helen and I did these. =)

So, today. Today was busy busy busy busy. First I started out today by starting on my mini cheesecakes.
Ingredients were not too bad. Just sugar, cream cheese, vanilla wafers, and eggs. The recipe is one that I have modified from something else, but its pretty good =). Be in awe of the process.

Just some crushed vanilla wafers in the bottom.
Add the wet ingredients, and into the oven they go!
YAY all done!

But today involved a lot more than just mini cheesecakes. I also went to the internship fair. Damn those people, only offering them to juniors, there like maybe 2 that were open for sophomores maybe. =( Maybe I'll just get a job. We'll see.

Then well, being kinda bored, and kinda wanting to use up some of my oats, I made oatmeal cranberry cookies. YUMM!
Be in awe again =).
Ingredients...a lot more than last time.
Mixed together!
Chilled and rolled into ball so they are ready to be baked!
All the cookies in a row, ready to be packaged, and eaten...
Artsy photo with cookies!
