In the mist of renovating the lounge I've somehow managed to teach myself how to make sugar art for the minis. I read one how-to article and saw a few pics to familiarize myself with the do's and don'ts. With no thermometer on hand I kept a real close eye as I waited... and waited for the sugar concoction to turn that magical caramel color and then viola! I got the caramelized consistency I was waiting for.
So then I made cute curlies and broke off some of that funky drizzle and topped some mini cupcakes with them. Not bad for my first time. Darn, now what am I going to teach myself next?
