Sans Rival Sans Problem: I think I am getting the hang of it!

I still have  minor issues with the french buttercream frosting but I think I am getting the hang of it.  The buttercream didn't thicken up as fast as I wanted to.  My mixer was on it for a good hour.  I stopped my mixer for a few seconds just to cool it down for a bit I didn't want the thing to keel over.  After 1 1/2 hour of beating the buttercream is more light and a bit thicker yet not thick enough.  At this point I decided to leave it in the fridge overnight to let the butter solidify for a bit.

The next day I was so relieved that the buttercream has thickened up.  Maybe the egg yolk mixture was still be a bit too warm.  I think next time I will try to chill the egg yolk mixture a bit so that it is the same temperature as the softened  butter.  Its going to be better and better each time.

The lettering is chocolate royal icing laced with oreo cookie crumbs.

Set on top of similar sizes cake pad.  It can now be
handled safely.  For clean cashew application place the cake
on your left palm.  Sprinkle nuts on the side and top.  Make
sure you are doing this on top of a cookie baking sheet.

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.



Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
toothpicks
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
