Go Go Gadget Tuesday

Can you believe it?  It’s Gadget Tuesday again.

I’ll start this post with:
I love to bake and if I could go back to school I would love to go to ‘Culinary Institute of America’ and study to become a pastry chef.  I would love to create one-of-a-kind wedding cakes, birthday cakes, breads, and pastries of all kinds.  The art of baking and embellishing the finished product fascinates me.  Instead of a paint palate with oils; it would be icing and chocolate.

I know two amazing pastry chefs (one lives in Texas and the other in Washington, D.C.)  Everything they create is amazing and beautiful.  Almost too pretty to eat – the key word here is ‘almost’.

This gadget I am sharing today is a find from ‘Sur La Table’ store.  It indulges my desire to create beautiful embellishments for all kinds of pastries.  (This is my first time using it; just know I need practice for the chocolate to be perfect.)

This item is from a company called Lékué.  The kit contains: 1 transparent baking sheet, a Decopen with different sized tips, and 4 laminated stencils with different motifs.

  All you have to do is follow the drawings on the stencils.

 And, Viola! You have created your very own chocolate figures.

This little decorating gadget is a lot of fun.  It is easy to use and I am sure if I practice my chocolate pieces will not turn out quite so lumpy. 

My hope is that you have a wonderful day.  Thanks for choosing to stop and read.
