September 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I had every intention of turning this September 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen post into an in my pantry post but time has swept me aside this month. I did not get to make my tofu for Alex’s challenge. I bought the soya beans but that is as far as I got. On the 29th I decided to buy some soya yoghurt but there was none in stock other than the fruit flavoured ones and I did not think cherry tofu was going to cut it. I can tell you that Alex made his tofu and I am hoping he will get to put his post up soon. This month was consumed by Freshly Blogged and I cannot tell you how amazing it was to get my weekends back. Last weekend I baked a sourdough chocolate cherry cake to enter into a competition and I will be recreating it for the blog soon. Next week I start a new phase of blogging competitions so I will be busy. In the meantime, here are the very few new items to find their way into my kitchen this month.

in my kitchen ….

is a roll of disposable piping bags. They are put together quite nicely with the triangles ‘back to back’ to form a rectangle. I used the first one to pipe some filling into my first batch of chocolate and the bag burst. The chocolates were a disaster from the beginning as the mould broke when I tried to turn the chocolates out.

in my kitchen ….

is a chocolate mould to replace the one that broke. The one that broke cost me under R100 and this one was more than R100. I have not tested it yet but it looks good and it come with a little stand. I had a choice of shapes and decided this one was the best and you might see the shape around here quite often if all goes to plan

is a decorating pen. I am hoping that this will work better than the piping bags to fill my chocolates with. And, I can use it to write on cakes and biscuits in the future.
