A Seafood Saturday Feast

Weekends are always fun when you get a theme for your family lunch or dinners. The whole gang would be excited to know about the recipes you have and would be eager to help out in the preparations especially if what you’re going to have is any one of their favorites. It’s a good thing that most of us in the family loves seafood specialties and agreed to have fresh seafood delivery for our Saturday extravagant lunch. It works like a reward for working our best both at work and in school during the weekdays and when Saturday comes; we can all enjoy a leisurely and luxurious meal that we all love.

For this weekend, I’m thinking of preparing seafood marinara with penne pasta and my husband is requesting to order lobster online that he and our sons can grill together. I’m still finding recipes for dessert though, my kids are requesting for ice cream and I might just give in to what they want. All I need now are some numbers to call for delivery and a short walk to the convenience store for half a gallon of ice cream and some snow cones too. Thank goodness for online deliveries, enjoying family meal times is so hassle-free!

How to Decorate Cakes

Cake decorating is one of the sugary arts that will not fail to amaze one’s eye. If you are an aspirant baker who likes to decorate tasty cakes, check the following tips:

  • For the flat top, flip the cake and use the flat bottom. Decorate as you please.

  • Create S-shape swirls with the use of a teaspoon.

  • Decorate cakes to cover up spotty icing by piping large and small dots.

  • Add a simple silky texture and sheen appearance with butter cream frosting.

  • Sprinkle cakes with goodies.

Adornment will give the cakes a finishing touch. It will just require creativity and skills to come up with an attractive culinary creation.

I am a frustrated baker, really like to do it, but not enough time!
