how to dress a bottle of champagne
Dressing a bottle of champagne gives it an extra bit of prestige when presented on a table.

This was something that I was taught to do years ago but doesn't seem to be done so often anymore.

In the high end florist store I worked we were routinely brought bottles of expensive wines and alcohols to dress them or the cradles that they were being served in.

For one of our own recent parties I dresses this Methuselah sized (yes, that is the correct term) bottle of bubbly as it was the show piece of the wine table.
how to make the perfect Irish CoffeeSt. Patrick's Day is when everyone find a little bit of Irish in themselves. 

You can join the festivities by putting back some green beer but if beer is not your drink of choice why not try an Irish Coffee.

Very popular it is a sweet coffee with liquor, great for finishing off a meal.

Add a four clover garnish and you will be celebrating St. Patty's Day in style.

how to make a tea towel chef's apronYou need to get ready for some spring cleaning and to get yourself in the mood why not whip up a tea towel chef's apron.

Tea towels often go on sale and it is a pity just to use the great colors and patterns that they come in just for mopping up.

This apron was made with two 99 cent tea towels I picked up at the Cambridge Towel Outlet Sale.

Easy to make this tea towel chef's apron is meant to be washed many times and still look good.

These can also be made up quickly as gifts for the cooks, barbequers and bakers in your life.

King Cake Cupcake Topper - Printable
If you have ever been to New Orleans before Mardi Gras the you will have seen King Cakes, the traditional cake that is sold in shops from January 6th until Fat Tuesday.

King Cake celebrates the visit of the Magis to the Christ Child .  Hence the 3 Kings and the tradition of having a small baby trinket in the cake. Who ever gets the baby has to bake the next cake. 

Usually decorated in the colors purple, green and gold to symbolize justice, faith and power.

While placing a plastic baby inside the cake is a tradition I am not a big fan of choking hazards so I designed these with a printable of a baby that you can tape to the bottom of one of the cupcakes.
