Look What I Found!!!

12 Aug

Hope you didn’t miss Kristina’s Confections too much!

I just got back from a trip to Vermont to see my best friend (Jess) and her family (including my main man!!!).  It was an amazing week away – as it always is – filled with lots of fun Vermont things.

One of the highlights was picking our own berries at a local organic farm.  We made jam and canned the product for a sweet treat all winter long (and I do mean sweet… do you know how much sugar goes in jam?  I’ll spare you the shocking amount!).

Who knows, maybe one of these jams will find their way into a new cupcake…

One of the other highlights was our trip to King Arthur Flour in Norwich, Vermont.  I have been using King Arthur Flour pretty much since the beginning of Kristina’s Confections.  I love the fact I can find it in bulk, I love the company story and, most importantly, I love the way it bakes.

I could have spent hours in The Baker’s Shop & Cafe looking at all the fun products – flours, sugars, whisks, aprons… and cookie cutters galore!

Look for some of these new shapes – turtle, frog, car, jersey, pig – in the coming weeks!
