Wednesday’s with WinniE’s! (April 16th)

 

Hey guys, happy Wednesday, not! Happy Friday, who’s ready for the weekend?! I AM…but maybe that’s because it’s my birthday on Sunday…yay! I am not usually excited for my birthday (always grateful) but, this year feels different!

So sorry to be getting the “Wednesday’s with WinniE’s” post up so late, but this week conspired against me, in a good way! Honestly, this week has been fantastic, and I truly couldn’t be more grateful for what I’ve been able to do. But, I’ll be sure to fill you in about that a little later. So look forward to hearing and seeing all about that in my next post!
For this weeks, “Wednesday’s with WinniE’s” I ‘TEST’ baked a concept completely developed by my brother, David, he came up with the flavor profiles and said, “Lise’, can you do this?” and of course I answered, “Yeah!”. The concept is a strawberry infused cupcake with lemon scented cream cheese buttercream. So I said, “Let’s do it!” and I did it!
Here is a look at how they turned out…

This is how it all started!

Hmmmm…LEMON!

I am so thrilled that “Sir David” loved the delectable, edible, confection we created to together! We always have been a GREAT team, “Dynamic Duo” from day one! We will be collaborating again very soon! But for now, one more photo!

Wednesday with WinniE’s!

             Today in my kitchen I was looking through recipe idea’s I put together and came across this…”Bacon cupcakes w/ Banana Buttercream topped w/ Peanut Butter drizzle + Chocolate Ganache” I couldn’t think of a better recipe to ‘TEST’ bake; in WinniE’s Bakery kitchen, today.

             When it comes to recipes, I draw inspiration from everywhere. I could eat something that I cooked myself or had a restaurant, I could think of something that my Nana used to make for me when I was a child or I could see something on TV; it really can come from anywhere at any time. I always try keep my notebook with me. As of right now, I am deeply inspired by everything that’s happening around me, that’s the magic of SPRING! It’s rebirth, regrowth and renewal, I am so grateful for spring. Remember now, I am in April baby. So, currently I’m writing about 1-2 recipes everyday, sometimes even 3. I hope I didn’t just jinx it! 

      Here’s a look at the adventure that happened today in the kitchen… I hope you guys like it!
