RhiCreate Logo...

I am looking at putting RhiCreate online, maybe starting an Etsy shop as well as doing dessert tables.  But before I do this I need to figure out what is going to be the identity of RhiCreate, therefore I need a logo.

I have been working on a few designs and want your feedback.  Constructive criticism welcome.  I also have a few colour palettes that I'm working with too, let me know which one you like (brown/pink or grey/pink).  The logos are numbered for easy referencing, so it would be greatly appreciated if you quickly left a comment saying your opinion.  More the better as I am quite terrible at making decisions on my own.  You might also have another idea for a totally different logo... Let me know.

Thanks for your time, it is greatly appreciated

Easter is coming... What did you EGG-spect!!!

As its that time of year again and the Easter long weekend is fast approaching now, I decided to put up some EGG-cellent cupcake toppers to share.  This way you can brighten up your Easter Feaster with these colourful masterpieces.  I use a 2" punch to cut these out and stick them onto toothpicks or lollypop sticks.

I have been at a work course this week so I haven't had time to bake, otherwise I would have posted photos of Easter cupcakes with these toppers in them.  Hopefully I get time over the long weekend to do some baking.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and I'll see you after the long weekend.

RhiDiscover is now on Twitter...

I have been at a work course this week on Web 2.0 Tools, and one of the sessions was on Twitter.  So I had to succumb to the Twitter world and start an account.  The reason why I didn't want to start up an account was because I didn't want to get addicted, and everyone who is a Twitter user says its addictive.

But here I am now... A Twitter'er.  So please follow me if you have an account too.


Please remember I am only new to this so still working out how to use it properly. 

 What is your best tip/trick for a beginning Twitter user?

Choc Chip Oreo Cookies...

I am a sucker with a sweet tooth, so I decided to try a new thing.  I'm sure its probably been done before, but I did think this awesome idea in my pretty lil head.

You love Choc Chip Cookies.... You love Oreos... Why not put them together... Why not put the Oreo INSIDE the Choc Chip Cookie!!!!  Genius!!!

I used the Oreo minis, which are yummo, but I don't think gives the same effect as the big ones.  I'll use the big Oreos next time.  That will also make the cookies bigger, which automatically means better.

Choc Chip Oreo Cookies

125 g Soft Butter
1/2 C Castor Sugar
2 drops Vanilla
1 Egg
1 1/2 C SR Flour
1 T Corn Flour
1/2 C Choc Chips
1 packet Oreos (you can eat the left over Oreos)

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and prepare oven slide
  2. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until creamy and fluffy
  3. Whisk egg and beat into creamed mixture
  4. Add choc chips and stir through creamed mix
  5. Sift flours into seperate bowl 
  6. Gradually add flour mixing well with a wooden spoon until all ingredients are combined
  7. Turn cookie dough onto board, knead gently, roll into log
  8. Evenly cut the log into slices.  Each slice is a cookie
  9. Take a slice of cookie dough, halve it, put the Oreo in between the dough and mould around the biscuit
  10. Roll and place on prepared tray
  11. Bake in oven for approx 10-15 mins, until starting to go golden brown
  12. Cool on wire rack
  13. Serve or store in an air tight container


Skeeta goes Pop Art...

The weekend that has just passed I got to doggy sit my little dog Skeeta.  He stills lives at home with my dad so it's good to have him visit.  It was a gorgeous day outside so we had some fun in the sun.  He's a very happy little puppy as you can see by his big smile.

iPad in the Kitchen???

This week I have upgraded from my iPhone 3 to the iPhone 4 and it has sent me a little bit Apple mad.  As I was walking past the Apple Store today on my shopping travels, jam packed inside were hundreds (a little exaggeration) of people, all Apple mad the same as me.  It got me thinking...  What are the different uses for the iPad?  What is the difference between a child and an adult wanting an iPad?  A mother and a professional?  

Then I asked myself the question... Why do I want an iPad? I have a desktop PC and a laptop, do I need an iPad?  How would it be beneficial to my life?

Answer... And I thought it was a pretty good one too... I would most definitely use an iPad in the kitchen.  It is the perfect kitchen utensil.  Long gone are the days where you go out and buy an abundance of cook books (although I do have a box full).  If you want a recipe the first place most people go these days is online.  It is light weight and compact enough to have on hand in the kitchen.  It would probably fit nice and snug on a recipe book holder for easy reading.  And most of all you can have your blogs or recipe websites right on hand when you are in the kitchen creating a masterpiece.

Do you think I have justified the use of iPad enough to get one now?   If I'm a good girl, maybe the birthday fairy or Santa will be nice to me this year.

Rainbow Cake...

I have been looking at these magical rainbow cakes for a while now, and I decided that it is definitely going on the '2011 To-Do List'.  Then I got an email from my dear friend and work colleague a few months ago suggesting I should make it for her birthday.  "Yeah yeah", was my reply, but of course I was always going to do what she wanted.  If she wanted a rainbow cake, she was going to get a rainbow cake, no matter how late I had to stay up baking on a school night.

To look at it just looks like a normal white iced cake, but the magic happens when you actually cut a piece out.  Viola... A burst of rainbow!

Happy House Warming...

This weekend I had my friends house warming party.  It was a lovely get together with the girls first of all for a Tupperware party.  I love Tupperware.  I couldn't resist but to buy myself a TurboChef.
Afterwards, the boys joined us for a BBQ around the bonfire.  Was a great casual and relaxed night.  Happy House Warming Ally & Paul!!!

My CupCake Topper Printables I made for the event.

The TurboChef I ordered from Tupperware... I cant wait to get it and start chopping.
