Image attached is my first crop of home grown Asparagus. Planted about 6 months ago in Brisbane Australia and after allowing the growth of full shoots and flowers(which are quite pretty) I have been able to harvest 4 spears that have risen above the soil surface.
I took this opportunity to Photograph them as you see in the image as well as stitch a panorama for my Macro Pano Food series.
Today’s mission was to create hot cross buns for the girls at Brisbane girls grammar school. Make the ferment, make the dough, prove for 40 mins, knock back prove for 20 mins, weigh and ball into trays, prove until double , brush with egg wash, pipe on the cross(just flour, oil and water), bake in old stony (our ancient bakers oven), turn often to escape the shocking hot spots, cool in tray for 5 mins, dust with icing mix and return to oven to melt the sugar a little. Alternatively make a sugar syrup and slap in on top with pastry brush like your painting a fence(this will create a creamy fondant icing). Turn out of tray and savour the magic smell of yeast and spice before you tray and serve.
Wedding cake completed for a couple last weekend. I made the cake and InnocentArt was the photographer. Very busy weekend but amazing, special, fun, beautiful, and memorable time. Some image will be shown after the special couple have viewed them.
Cake made with traditional fruit top, butter sponge layered centre and Mississippi mud cake bottom. Decorated in white chocolate fondant, cottage, briar, open white rose and petal spray, then topped with unique hand crafted dashound bride and groom edible figurines.
Last weekend the Family was treated to a day in the Sunshine coast hinterland Queensland. Our guide “Kate Wall” Exceptional local Photographer and friend. Kate softened up a little and showed us one of her secret spot for photographing forests, water, wildlife etc. After having to wear blindfolds and driven along bumpy roads! lol, we arrived at a pristine natural wonder. When I enter one of these forests I am always humbled by their beauty and reminded why humans are here – to protect our home. Attached is one of my images from the day. Thanks Kate I hope I have done the forest proud.
A real passion of mine. I love the sandbox capabilities of this game. At this time I am running FTB (feed the beast) and building on my Sons server. From time to time I will post some stuff here and I am looking to do some Video’s of our builds and mini games.
I have many idea’s every day, most ideas not worth a second thought but a few are worth use. After researching patents and copyright my decision is to just share. there are many innovation share sites but I want mine to be plain old share. So I will post my ideas, you are welcome to add, expand, comment or criticise. Alternatively you can blog your own innovations. If anyone or company would like to take an idea then I would request you consult with me as I may have the concept further fleshed out and can add more.
