Brownie Bites and A Winner
I started taking cake decorating classes through Wilton, so I have been hanging out in the baking aisle of Michael’s on a pretty regular basis. This activity is fun for me, but not so fun for my bank account.
I have a bunch of 40% and 50% off coupons from Michael’s and I feel as though these damn coupons send me in to a buying frenzy. I need to practice a little self-control when I enter the store this evening in hopes that I do not come home with more random stuff that I have no room for!
One of those random purchases was a silicone Brownie Bite Pan. Although this was a complete impulse buy, I love it SO much and I am glad I purchased it!
If you want one of your own, enter my blogoversary giveaway!
After the brownies cooled, I dipped them into a scrumptious pool of ganache and topped them with a tiny fondant daisy (another impulse buy). I thought these came out cute and were the perfect bite-sized snack for co-workers on the go!
These photos were taken with my new 50mm 1.4 lens. I really like this lens a bunch, but need a lot more practice with it! Check me out on twitter for a small twitter only giveaway as a thanks to my followers!
Now for the CNS sponsored giveaway for a Bubble & Brown 2-Piece Stoneware Baker by Rachel Ray.
Drum roll, please! The winner is Sara, of the blog Cupcake Muffin. Congratulations, Sara!!! I am sure you will love this bakeware as much as I do!!
