Vanilla Panna Cotta with a Blue Berry coulis

                     After baking a Palova that someone ordered for their office dinner, I had some balance of Whipping Cream & I didn't want to, haha, bake [had baked 2 recipes of meringue & was too tried to bake some more] neither did I want to waste the Whipping Cream, so the next day, I decided to make some Panna Cotta.

                     Cooked a fresh batch of Blue Berry coulis & used that as a topping & was very happy that the Hubs loved same. 

                        I decided to make a Blue Berry coulis & use it as a topping as the Vanilla Panna Cotta that I learnt needed something to jazz it up. Tasted good & it had a better visual effect to boot!!! 

                          Straining the coulis for a smooth texture & just for kicks, I added a tablespoon of a Cherry Liqueur for a better flavour :) 

                            Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia.

Back into the game again

              Yup it has been a while since I last posted. Now back into action again. Saw a picture tutorial on the net & was very fascinated with it. Trying to [operative word "trying"] to see whether I can mould it & trying to give it my take as what the maker of the gumpaste did was pretty impressive. 

                   As each component needs to be dried completely & sturdy enuf, it would take a few days before I can complete same.  A Big IF is IF I do succeed, fingers crossed. A big thank you to the maker.

              Was side tracked due to some cake orders thus didn't have time to continue with this & as I have almost finished the gum paste decorations for a birthday cake order which is scheduled for collection next week, I had some free time today & added the body to the legs. Still don't know whether I would succeed doing this as, at the moment, gravity is getting the better of me :) but won't give up just yet!!! 

                     Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia.
