Baking with the Pioneer Woman

Hey all, I wanted to show you a quick set of pics from the first half of Monday. Pioneer Woman made her Chocolate Sheet cake recipe (so yummy, by the way) for some cupcakes and then I showed her a few tips on using fondant. Here’s a peek. We had a blast. I’ll recap the photos later, but for now enjoy!

I’m so freakin jealous right now Bakerella! You know that I should be there with you. You look like you are having a ball and I can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back. I want to see pics of you and MM working in the barn or mending fences. I need proof that you actually did alittle work instead of just fun fun fun!

We miss you!

OH…how I would have loved to be there.

I wanted to so badly, but alas, I live 50 billion miles away.

It looks like you had a blast! The Ranch is absolutely beautiful!!

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

I can’t think of a better way to spend a day. Or a week. Or, you know, whatever…than baking with you two and hanging out on the ranch. Looks like a blast.

Oh how I would love to be there eating all those yummy things but then I would feel obliged to do laps of the ranch land ;-), enjoy each others company. I can’t believe two of my most favourite blogs are in the one place.

You should try twitterfall, it’s shinier than twitters search function link to twitterfall.com for example :) I love all the pictures (love seeing PW’s MM wears his hat indoors!).

Thank you for sharing the sneak peek!

You and PW are two of my favorite people! So nice that you two got together! Have a BLAST!

I’ll never win a day with the PW, and I could never make it that far away for a weekday session. Being an adult really isn’t fun sometimes. SIGH!

The pictures are so fun. I especially love the one with MM on the computer at that giant table. :)

Naomi said...

So sad I didn’t get to be one of the onlookers today since it would only be an hour or two drive… it looks like quite the production. I can’t wait to read all about it on both blogs!

March 10, 2009 06:24 PM
Cupcake Activist said...

Wow…what a kitchen! She must be some cook to have that kitchen! And her chocolate sheet cake looks amazing! The pictures make me want to leave work and go home to bake.

There is a tv show on the N channel which is part of Nickelodeon but it’s for teens (my kids tell me).
Anyway, it has Jenny Garth and Amanda Bynes called What I like about you. Have you seen it? They have a cupcake store with the cutest cupcakes! It made me think of you.

I want to be there…I want the lodge…I want the kitchen space…heck I will just settle for some more pictures.

OMG that’s so awesome. I think we all would have loved to have been just teeny little flies to witness two of our favorite bloggers together.

Can’t wait for the play-by-play!

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

So envious Bakerella. Great pics of The Lodge, things we have never seen. I almost died when I heard you were headed to Ree’s. Next time the contest should not be for people who live within driving distance of the ranch. HAVE CREDIT CARDS WILL TRAVEL! TWO OF MY FAVORITES!

It looks and sounds like you had a fabulous time.

I made your cupcake pops today for the first time! They turned out really well. They are a hit! Fun to make too!

Bush Babe said...

Wow… my first time to you (courtesy of P Dub of course!). I am not jealous at all. All that washing up. All that mess. All that filming and focussing… nope. Not jealous!!

Seriously, your cakes are adorable and I love, love your slideshow from the day’s activities. Know that when you maximise on a big screen those pixels go a little crazy. But I HAD to check it out at maximum velocity!

Will check back later…

morgana said...

What can I say!!! If you could see me now, you would think I’m Shrek related, so GREEN am I right now because of the envy. I’m sure you had a great time together. And… by the way, the kitchen in the photos is quite similar to the kitchen in my dreams. Snif!

xoxo for both.

What a beautiful place! Looks like there was some serious creativity and inspiration going on! I have a question. Not sure if you can answer on the comments section, but my daughter will be turning 21 this week. I would like to try your cake pops! How long do they last? Can I make them ahead. How do you store them? Also, are there local stores that sell the edible pens or do you have to order them online? What beautiful blogs! You girls rival any magazine out there! You should be in print!

Looks like all of you had a great time!

After following this though, I swear I saw some easter egg pops on either your site or pw's site once & now I can't find it anywhere. Have you made them before?

Miss Angie
Don’t you just love Ree? I thought it was funny to see two of my favorite blogs/sites coming together. I follow Pioneer Girl as well as Bakerella. You’ll have to check out my blog too. I just started so it’s a little bare, but give me time.
God Bless

The photos – breathtaking.

The chocolate cake – also breathtaking!

I made up some cupcakes for work and word spread quickly – very quickly. I had people I didn’t even know asking for a cupcake! Sadly I only had 2 dozen, which were gone before I knew it. Thanks to PW for sharing the recipe, and thank YOU for sharing your photos!
