Happy Father's Day!

As Father's day was fast approaching I was debating what to make for my husband this year. You guessed it, normally it was cakes anything from Cherry Chip, German Chocolate to Peanut Butter Cake. But this year I wanted to make something extra special. I dogged through tons of recipes until a dessert I haven't made before "Strawberry Jell-O Delight" jumped out at me.  I found out that Strawberry Jell-O Delight was a childhood favorite, his mother made him. So what better way to celebrate him then by making something he already loved.

 I want this day to be super special for my hubby because he is a fantastic Super dad. He make sure we have everything we need.  My Husband takes care of everything when I'm down like a champ. Couldn't get through a day without him by my side, he is a cheerleader, cuddle bug, and warrior. Great Dads are this everyday for their children, I'm so glad that mine got a good one.

What's your favorite Dad moment?  My favorite dad moment, when I was growing up was going to basketballs games, yelling over everyone, and stuffing our faces with Hot Dogs.
We all need to show the Dads in our lives how much they mean to us, and cherish every moment.
I love this imagine, I think it  says it all..

Don't forget to say Happy Father's Day to your Dad.  Make plenty of memories!!!

Top Secret TIP

My students all ask me if "I know a trick that keeps their bags clean?" That's piping bags: disposable, feather weight, and etc. This tip will save you money. THIS IS  A MUST READ

Here's what you'll need : saran wrap, icing( homemade or store bought), any piping  bags.  
What I am about to share with you all is top secret, so listen closely.
 Let's get Decorating.

Here's step 1:  Place about the size of sheet of paper of saran wrap on the counter. Then take some icing from your container.  Place icing on the saran wrap. As shown in the photo. 


Now step 2 : Take your icing and roll it long ways like cookie dough. As shown in photo below.

Now step 3: Get your piping bag (any type). Take the top of the bag,  roll it down like a cuff around top of hand. Now get your icing that is rolled into a log like cookie dough shape. Place one end down into the bag, pull the saran wrap string all way through the coupler. As photo demos. 

Now your final step:  Cut the end off the saran wrap that is coming out the coupler or tip. As shown in photo below. Pip your decoration as normal. Then just remove the saran wrap piece, while keeping you bag clean. 

My 2  favorite reasons for this trick is Easy clean up, and I can do this with multiple colored icing and get multi-colored decorations. As shown in the photos below.   

Keep Decorating!! :)
