Another post brings more exicitig news. But first I must share the back story. As I shared in my last post- I went to NYC for my sister's birthday. Well, while there, my camera broke. It may have been dropped on its lens (but the person will remain anonymous ;) ). So I was camera-less, which was sad becuase it broke at the beginning of our trip and so all the lovely cupcakeries that I visited- had to be photographed with my iPhone :( So if you read my cupcakery reviews- Im sorry for some of the pictures. But when I got back- I went on the search for what new camera I wish to get. I knew I was in the market for a DSLR but, as with most DSLRs they were expensive- so I was a bit hesitant. Long story short...thanks to the hubby- I am now the owner of a Nikon d5100!!! I am so excited! I now have the potential to greatly improve upon my food photography skills and maybe, just maybe, my photography skills in general. However, I do have to admit that that the camera is a bit tricky to work (which Im sure goes along with the territory of no longer having a point and shoot), and I have only now just mastered the basics but I have a lot more to learn! Sometime I do get frustrated but I just need to be patient and do more research.
Along with the cream puffs- I decided to also make some cookies. I was on route to make these peanut butter cookies but the hubster pointed out instead, after scrolling through my Pinterest on my iPad- that I had not made "these"- well when I went to look to see what "these" meant- I saw that he was pointing to "these" brownie sandwich cookies with salted caramel filling- similar to homemade Oreos but with a twist. It looked interesting enough and the hubby was right- I had not made anything like it, so I decided to go for it. Although they looked easier than the cream puffs- they actually turned out to be a bit more difficult, but not so bad.
