My nemesis.

Snickerdoodle cupcakes

Snickerdoodle cupcakes

In hopes that people will order treats from me to raise money for Breast Cancer Research, I bake things and post pictures so that said people can see that I can decorate a decent cookie and fumble my way through cake pops and cupcakes.

…and hopefully the lack of cake photos will encourage them to not order a cake.

I am constantly trying to take a decent picture of my creations so they look, well, appealing.

Enter ‘beige’ food.

Argh – beige!  Breads, pastas, shortbread, snickerdoodles…all. beige.  We have a social magazine in our area where I contribute a recipe a month and let me tell ya, I seem to make aLOT of colorful food wrapped up in beige – quesadillas, egg rolls, empenadas.  AHHH!!

One of my most successful desserts is a mini cream puff – it’s a mouth full of yum!  But….

More beige but darker.  So this weekend I made Carrot Banana bread and really worked on staging and lighting….
