A birthday cake is a long-established and valued element of a birthday celebration that can be traced back to the early Roman times. Children especially will even say that birthday parties are incomplete without them.

Think About The Activities That Your Birthday Celebration Likes To Do

If he likes music, you can decorate your cake in many ways. Violin, for example, would be the right design for someone who is a fan of classical music. You can use the chocolate icing to form the body and a little licorice for the strings.

You can also try making a grand piano cake by using the black icing for the body and the white icing to make the keys. On the other hand, if it’s death metal, alternative, pop or rock that he likes, cake shaped like an electric guitar is a good idea. Decorating cakes based on musical tendencies from celebrities can give you a lot of motivation for design.

Dessert Wines – A Pleasant Surprise

I have enjoyed a good glass of table wine many times with my meals. Wine tasting parties have always been a favorite pastime, especially when combined with cheese. No, I am not from Wisconsin so I do not rate a “cheese head hat”. Recently, after a pleasant dinner party with good friends, I was introduced to a new class of vintages that I had never tried before. The dessert wine I was served turned out to be the fitting end to a fabulous evening.

DESSERT WINES - A PLEASANT SURPRISE

Grapes used for these type of wines are not harvested in the same fashion and timing as your typical table wine grapes. The goal is to increase the sugar content of the grape by mainly harvesting them later in the season. Often a noble rot forms on the grapes before harvest. In another dessert type named ice wine, grape harvest is delayed until the first freeze. Some times these wines are developed by pausing the fermentation process.

There are several types of grapes primarily used in the making of dessert wines. Semillon grapes are commonly used in Sauternes that often smell like the wildflowers where it is grown. Muscat grapes may remind you of orange and honey. Fendant and Chasselas are typically found primarily in Switzerland. Spicy Gewurztraminer wines are good tasting and seem to age well. Fortified wines like sherry, port and Madeira are made differently than your typical dessert wine, but are also a great choice and considered in many circles to be “honorary dessert wines”. Be aware that some wineries are making great dessert wines by “late-harvesting” table wine grapes used for Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier.

When serving, a general rule is the wine should be sweeter than the food it is served with. Good matches include fresh sweet fruits, bakery goods and …

Dessert Wine Glasses and What You Need to Know

When people hear the phrase ‘dessert wine glasses’ what first comes into mind is a regular wine goblet with some ice cream shoved into it. This couldn’t be further from the truth, because as I’ll be writing soon, these wine glasses have nothing whatsoever to do with dessert!

Traditionally these types of goblet are filled with sweet liquor such as sherry or port. Describing them isn’t too difficult and they have the appearance of a champagne flute in the miniature with the main bowl of the around the size of two shot glasses. These types of wine goblet aren’t used that often anymore but they have very traditional routes. After a particularly big meal, perhaps a dinner party with guests or just a Christmas lunch to help the food settle these would be whipped out a long with a bottle of sherry or port. From here people would move to the lounge or living room with their sweet liquor in hand.

With their dessert wine glasses in hand conversation would flow much more smoothly, and the sumptuous meal would be able to settle. I really do think this makes a great gift for a married couple or for a boyfriend and girlfriend. Imagine you and your wife receiving a crystal pair of them along with a bottle of port to go with them. They’re a gift that isn’t particularly expensive and yet speak class with every sweet drop. Not only that, but they’re a gift that’s actually useful and will be kept for a long time and will more importantly be used!…

So You’ve Got a Recipe and You Want to Sell a Food Product

SO YOU'VE GOT A RECIPE AND YOU WANT TO SELL A FOOD PRODUCT

You’ve been making this recipe forever and every time you share the results, someone says, “Wow, this is so good! You should sell it.” And that’s where you gets stuck, because you have no idea what to do next.

When you’re at this stage, at the very beginning with no clue what to do next, you don’t know what you don’t know. You don’t know even know what questions to ask. Eight years ago I was in your shoes. I needed help; I knew I needed help, but I didn’t know where to turn.

I stumbled along, making mistakes, spending money I didn’t have and sometimes getting lucky and finding solutions that worked. I looked for help from people who’d “been there” too. Shari Fitzpatrick, founder of Shari’s Berries, and I had a conversation during which I recall asking the most intelligent questions I could come up with. She was very kind in sharing her experience, but in hindsight, and to my point, I’m not sure I got as much as I could have out of that conversation. First because it was only about 15 minutes long and more critically, because I wasn’t sure what to ask. I wonder if she hung up from that call thinking, “ha, good luck to that girl ’cause she does NOT know what she’s doing.”

Eventually, I managed to piece together enough of what I needed to know to get the right incorporation, licensing, business and liability insurance, registration for sales tax, space in which to bake, ingredient, packaging and shipping vendors and so on. Quite possibly, I may have (unknowingly) violated some laws. This was not the fast track, but there wasn’t any other way, and I was determined to keep moving forward!

There is plenty of information “out there” about starting a …
