* What’s Cooking Wednesday *
The photos show our first ever flamingo being created by our very talented glass blower Jeff!
1 - shows the body being shaped
2 - shows the head being pulled out from the body and shaped
3 - shows the tail being pulled and shaped
4 - shows the piece being heated. This is done between each stage to ensure the glass stays at a workable temperature
5 - shows the beak being added and sculpted
6- shows the legs being stretched and final tweaks being made
7 - the finished piece while it’s still hot! When the glass is hot the colours don’t truly show
8 & 9 - the piece is complete and the colours are beautiful!! For the first flamingo we are very happy with how it turned out!
So this is where it all began.. my first cake 🙌🏻 actually not my first cake but the first cake that was worthy of a photo and didn’t end up in the bin 😂🤦🏻♀️ This is the first cake that meant something. I was proud of it! I actually made a cake that was half decent and tasted pretty good too 😋👌🏻 apart from forgetting to put it on a cake stand so it was stuck on the turn table 🤦🏻♀️ Also needed way more sweets but i was impatient and wanted to get cracking!
Practice makes perfect 👌🏻😌✨👩🍳 #instabaker#newtothis#instacake#supportlocal#leedscakes#firstattempt#pink#sweetcake
Homemade almond nut butter. First attempt, blended for a long time but not achieving the smooth and creamy texture as seen in YouTube videos. What’s wrong?! 🤷♀️
Made up my own vegetarian nacho recipe. Pretty proud. Tastes awesome. Can't wait for dinner to build the nachos! Feel inspired to write a blog, but who would visit it? 😅
