Honey Caramel Corn

I wanted some caramel corn but ran out of corn syrup,
so I looked for a recipe that didn't involve corn syrup
and found this: Honey Caramel Corn.

It was delicious I only got to try it,
my dad ended up eating all of it!

I'm posting the recipe for you guys.
If you love popcorn like i do and want to try something new;
try this.

Honey Caramel Corn

-1/2 cup honey
-1/2 cup butter or margarine
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- salt
-1 tsp. grated orange peel
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-3 quarts (12 cups) popped popcorn

1. Place popcorn in large baking sheet ( I use wax paper, makes for easy cleaning)
and remove all unpopped kernels.
2. Melt butter in saucepan; stir in sugar, honey & salt.
Cook & stir until mixture comes to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to medium; boil without stirring for about 3 min.
4. Remove from heat & stir in orange peel and baking soda.
5. Slowly pour syrup over popcorn while stirring.
6. Bake at 250 degrees for 45 min., stir every 15 minutes.
7. Cool. Break into serving-sized pieces and store in airtight container.

*Six serving of two cups each.

Busy Baking Bee

I've been a busy baking bee,
like the title of my post says.
Cupcakes with fondant flowers
and a Hello Kitty birthday cake for my
little sister who turned 10 and
a whole lot of sugar cookies,

Here are some pictures of what i have been baking
minus the cupcakes ;( no camera.

4 layers of butter cake with a piƱa-colada filling, yum.
*that smudge you see there is not the mouth,
my sister accidentally put her finger in it. i fixed it after.

The Christmas cookies were for a class project.
First time decorating cookies with fondant,

halloween cookies & cold porcelain

For Halloween i baked these sugar cookies,
they turned out to be the best sugar cookies
I've made so far. I decorated them with royal icing
it was my first time making and decorating with
royal icing so they didn't turn out so bad after all.
This guy was my favorite, he turned out adorable:

And with these figures I'll finish off my post.
This pregnant women is made from cold porcelain mix.
I was practicing making figures
out of cold porcelain to make it easy to work with gum paste
and fondant. It's a cake topper for a baby shower cake (:
or it would be if it were made out of gum paste this is
just a model.

Had some extra cold porcelain so i decided to make
this cute little chubby bunny in a bathing suit
sitting on a carrot n.n
