Flashback Friday: A Hershey Hedwig Halloween

About 18 months ago, I launched a new series called, “Flashback Friday.” Here’s the introduction I wrote to that first post…

“Welcome to Flashback Friday, a new series on The Merchant Baker. Here, I hope to share some of our creative endeavors… projects that we worked on well before the blog.  Most of the pictures in these posts will likely be home photos that were never taken with the thought that they’d be published, so I’ll need a little leeway on judging picture quality.  (Although some are much better quality than my early recipe posts, so there’s that ;)”

Flashback Friday is where I share some of our creative endeavors that happened before the blog.

Clearly we’ve been going through… Continue reading

Hey there.  Checking in to say I haven’t forgotten about you.

Flashback Friday The Kimochi Cake TOTAL-6

What’s been going on here? Well….I was getting a couple of posts ready for you last week and they were both recipe fails. They shouldn’t have been. They were both supposed to be slam dunks, but I was probably distracted with getting ready to go on a trip and making a thousand or so lists to insure I remembered everything we needed to pack. I think that’s part of what they mean when they say, “Made with love.” Your head/heart has to be in the game. For all I know, I forgot something or didn’t measure something correctly.… Continue reading

Flashback Friday: The Pac Man Party (Part Two)

Flashback Friday Pac-Man Birthday Cake

This is Part Two of The Pac Man Party, the second installment of my latest series, Flashback Friday. In this series, I share some past creative endeavors, things that happened well before the blog.  Most of the photos will generally come from shots taken quickly with my phone, likely meant for a quick share with friends or family.

In Part One, I shared our ideas for goody bags and other Pac Man related creations. In this post, we’re only going to talk about cake, the enormous cake that I made for this Pac Man themed Party.

Having made some difficult cakes in the past, I was excited when… Continue reading

Welcome to Flashback Friday, a new series on The Merchant Baker. Here, I hope to share some of our creative endeavors… projects that we worked on well before the blog.  Most of the pictures in these posts will likely be home photos that were never taken with the thought that they’d be published, so I’ll need a little leeway on judging picture quality.  (Although some are much better quality than my early recipe posts, so there’s that.)

I know Throwback Thursday is all the rage, but I really didn’t want to jump on that bandwagon (much to my husband’s protests.) Fridays work best for me, so I’m… Continue reading
