|(Do you see that bead up there? The one that is turquoise and gold and so beautiful that it almost hurts your eyes? That is my favorite bead EVER!!)|
Just in case you hadn't heard...the old gray mare? She ain't what she used to be.
Working twelve-hour days has left her too tired for much else, and she had a big project she needed to finish (more about that later). So blogging had to take a back seat.
But, as the say about poltergeists...she's baaa-aaack.
And I am back to show you what is undoubtedly the most beautiful cake tester EVER.
I won this cake tester over at Bliss's blog. Of course folks probably thought it was rigged because Bliss is an old (time-wise, not age-wise) blogging friend. The cake tester is from one 30 one designs (owned by Bliss's gal), and the beads are exquisite. I couldn't wait to try it out, but I had to because of life stuff (which tends to get in the way on occassion).
So I made some gingerbread for the base of a pear compote. I used the cake tester to make sure it was done. It worked like a charm!!
I sauteed some pears in a little limoncello and butter...
...and poured the pears over the gingerbread. A little heavy cream and voila!
Thanks to Bliss and Beth for the lovely cake tester! Please visit the etsy page where you can find your own beautiful cake tester. They make great gifts!!
Linking here and here to party with my friends!!
