Vegan Green Tea Ice Cream

One of my favorite desserts, once again, was impossible to find anywhere vegan style, so i broke down and had to make it myself! With some stashed up free rewards I bought an ice cream maker, so the light bulb went off in my brain and this recipe was born. Feel free to experiment with different milks, different flavors (like cocoa instead of matcha powder). 

1 1/2 cups coconut milk (from a can) 
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 heaping tablespoon matcha powder

Wisk all ingredients together till smooth. Turn on ice cream machine, add mixture and sit back and wait till some ice-cream appears. My machine took about 20 minutes till it turned into creamy goodness. Scoop out & Devour!

Wedding Cake on August 11th 2012

This weekend I was able to once again, do what I love to do-wedding cakes! For a local Denver couple, I made a 3 tiered cake plus 2 full sheet cakes, some vanilla with chocolate, chocolate with white chocolate, and lemon poppy with fresh strawberry and buttercream. NOM NOM NOM. I handmade  the white rose out of gum paste.  Her beautiful, slightly-rustic wedding was held at Mile High Station, right next to the Broncos Stadium.

Pictures of her parents and their parents on their wedding day were scattered around the cake. The topper was her great grandmothers as well.
