Pineapple Curd Recipe

Hello loves,

Wow am I uber excited about this recipe!!! I make lemon curd all the time, thats just a staple in the culinary kitchen if you need a pie... So with this cake I had coming up, I thought instead of the traditional pineapple upside down cake, why not fill the cake with pineapple curd and be different?!!!

The results are super yummy and intense pineapple that will pair well with the rum cake.

Pineapple Curd
*this can be doubled and halved every easily with similar results*

7 oz sugar
3 1/2 oz pineapple juice
3 1/2 oz egg yolks
3 oz butter

Combine sugar, juice and yolks over a double boiler until thickened (test the back of a spoon by dipping and scraping spoon, if the liquid stays separate on the spoon it is thick enough).

Strain curd and stir in butter.

Cool over and ice bath to reduce the temperature.

Can be used immediately after cooling, or can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

This is a great recipe to try out. I hope you like it if you do!!!! Have a great day in the kitchen.

Love,

Jae

Birthday Cake for Wendy

Latest cake was for a beautiful repeat customer, ^_^

Her friend turned 60 years young and she surprised me by ordering one of my summer flavors right before i change the menu! Awesome right!


They loved it!!! And I am so happy that they did!

Cake was peach spice, peach caramel filling and vanilla IMBC.

I will keep you posted as more comes in, cake menu changing over to fall flavors... Cannot wait to transition and have some adventurous clients!!!

Until next time, love ya always,

Jae

Frozen Cake

So this was my first 2D cake, Ive done with a human-like face.

I'm such a perfectionist so I definitely freaked out a little lol.


Olaf was easy, as expected, he is not 2D, he is 3-dimensional, just lying down, but if i was interested in putting him together instead of swimming, i could have.

My daughter loves Frozen and the inspiration came from Olaf's song, "In Summer" though Elsa is her favorite character, he was a must have as well on the cake.

In retrospect, i would have done the face differently, a little less puffy right side cheek, a little more puffy left side cheek, but the experience was well worth it.


The birthday girl loved her cake, recognized the characters instantly and told me I was the greatest!!!! Now thats a great compliment!

Cake is almond cake with cream cheese filling, vanilla IMBC. Olaf is fondant, Elsa is fondant.

Love lots, until next time...

Catching Fire Cake

In January, the first cake of the year for me was a birthday cake for a special 9-year old who loves Katniss!

She was surprised and loved it!

Until next time,
