The Stamping Diva ~ AKA my daughter Erika from Stampin' Mama ~ has done it again! She has the most amazing talent for creating outrageous treasures out of totally ordinary things! Given the success we had with our last Cherry Kisses project, we've decided to make "Bake it, Make it & Take it!" a regular feature. I'll give her the recipes from my collection at Suite101.com, she'll bake the goodies, then dream up some way-out container to showcase them in! Erika has always been creative, but I swear those twisted dreads have given her some magical power to make everything she touches sparkle!
While I was in Vermont visiting a week ago, I got this uncontrollable urge to play bakery! What a coincidence my son has a bakery (that's another story)! I bought all sorts of ingredients and went to play with the BIG BOY equipment. I made Kahlua Tiramisu at his place. The next day, I went to Erika's house and we both had a blast, making messes and licking bowls! When I was done, we all got to eat the fruits of my labor ~ meaning cheesecakes and Tiramisu!
For this "Bake it, Make it & Take it" project, we came up with a version of my Chocolate Zebra Cheesecake Recipe. After I was done with everything I wanted to make, I still had some batter left over and decided to make mini cheesecakes with Oreos, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate Chips. Erika then grabbed the cheesecakes before the guys and kids could devour them and took a bunch of very professional photos. She then sat down and savored every bite while groaning in delight! Can't you just picture it? That's my girl!
