April: Vanilla

April 14, 2008 at 8:49 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 21 Comments

I got back from vacation last weekend and ended up sick all last week so I’ve just started baking Easter Candy delights and I’m working on putting the round up together.

In the mean time, who wants to know our next ingredient?

Vanilla!ย  You can use either extract or the full beans (which are even better).

You have until May 10th to bake your Vanilla goodies so get your baking caps on and have fun!

  1. ohmygod. I am totally gonna rock this one… just declare me the winner now. Save yourself the trouble ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Wow, this will be fun. That leaves us quite a lot of creative leeway! I’m excited to start trying stuff out.

  3. Ooh, that makes for a lot of options. I hope you’re feeling better! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. OoOoo I have something in mind already. Glad you are feeling a little better babe!

  5. My favorite ingredient for my favorite month (I’m a May baby), yippie!

  6. I’ve been looking for a great excuse to to try a vanilla bean again! Perfect choice!

  7. Great choice! Can we use vanilla bean paste too?

  8. Holly – vanilla bean paste is fair game!

  9. Shoot, my extract won’t be ready in time, I’ll have to come up with something else amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Okay, YUM! I was going to make vanilla cupcakes this weekend anyway…hmmm… ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. […] This is my entry for two competitions. I decided I would make two flavours of animals, both with a cupcake base of sesame and vanilla but I would make a Panda one filled with green tea creme patiserrie for the Sugar High Friday Asian sweet invasion challenge and a Bear one filled with vanilla creme patisserie for the Master Baker April Vanilla challenge. […]

  12. […] In a practical sense, I wanted to differentiate the vanilla custard filled vanilla & sesame cupcakes from those filled with green tea custard. So what better way aside from sticking your finger inside (so lacking decorum but fun) than to give the cupcake an entirely different look. So instead of Pandas to signify the Green tea custard, I used Bears to signify Vanilla. I do realise that a filling such as honey would have been more appropriate but I had to work with what I had. So using the same directions as on my Panda cupcakes with some rejigging of the decorations (described in the story), I present my family of Bears. A Sesame bean with vanilla bean custard filling, just in time for the April Master Baker challenge! […]

    checkbox and now every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a way you are able to remove me
