This is my version of Alfredo made from scratch.
1. Saute mushrooms then add butter, cream, cheese and seasons to taste.
2. I cook both my shrimp and chicken separate and add to each person's plate.
3. I used 100% Whole Wheat pasta.
I forgot to take the finish product I was so ready to eat by the end I just forgot!

Today I decided to practice covering a cake with fondant. It was not an easy task for me. I still have not got it down pack but I was successful in getting it on and smoothed out. I decide to do a black and pink cake. The board and the cake are covered in black fondant. The bear and dots are covered in bubble gum flavored hot pink fondant.

These are my first attempt of Edible Teddy Bears. I think they turned out swell. My two year old kept saying "Teddy Bear". Now I am working on a edible child topper.

Today I taught myself to make Cupcake Toppers for an upcoming Birthday Bash!!
I am excited that I sat there until I figured it out. I almost wasted $40 on a software that I bought from Target today. It is definitely going back after church tomorrow!

Ok so I got a wild hair tonight and made chocolate cupcakes with butter cream icing. Then I decided to make some Chocolate Chip cookies made with European butter and my new favorite baking flour King Arthur! This is the second time I have used this particular recipe and I am sold it will be the only one I will ever use! As my son would say Omg!!!

Lei Lei

Well it has been a busy week for me. My main job Registered Nurse has not allowed me any room for baking this week. I have to fill two orders this coming week. Plus going with my family to a water park Friday. I also am trying to put together a few events that are coming up soon. I will keep you posted.

Patterson Cookout

Well Saturday's cookout was a success although I got frantic when it appeared there was no help for me in sight. My son (the employee) went out of other help ran into unforeseeable husband ended up being in a aau tournament at the last minute (Go Carolina Predators !).....But there is nothing like the end it was good times, good food and a blessed family gathering. When is the next just not sure about that.

So I been looking for a good Chocolate Cookie recipe.....well I think this just mite be a keeper. Love the Hershey special Dark chips...yum yum!

Here is cake number 2 with my Cricuit Cake Cutter. The "L" came out nice but I looped a little more. You do have to let the fondant sit in the freezer for at least 15mins so it comes off smoothly. The flowers are from gumpaste makers.....The string on this cake was off but I have ordered a new tool that should help me get the look i am looking for!
Happy baking!!!

This is my Strawberry Cream Cake. It is a vanilla butter cake with strawberry filling and fresh cream cheese. I have made 5 in the last 7 days!

So I got an order to make a Chocolate Chip Cookie cake. I had never done one before so I did a test run and changed a few things. The ones here are the one's for the birthday boy.
Chocolate Chip Cookie cake with Caramel & Chocolate Drizzle decorated with Fudge Icing....yum yum!

Click on picture Ok this is my weakness. This is Lei Lei's Red Passion cake. I am very passionate about this cake. I sell this cake more than any other cake, even my cheesecakes. I LOVE it. To bad due to my current way of eating this is off limit's. But it smelled so good.

I made this for my coworkers parent's who were celebrating 60 plus years of marrige. It is a vanilla cake with red swirls and a Dark Chocolate Icing.

Ok! It has been a VERY busy week at Lei Lei's. I am so thankful to all. God is really blessing Lei Lei's Cuisine, Inc.
