The Daring Baker’s October 08′ Challenge, Peter Reinhart’s Pizza Dough

Ok, I skipped September’s challenge because I have not been in the mood to bake extra things lately.  My business is really taking off, and I am always in the kitchen making cakes or cake like items.  With the Holidays here I have been extra busy baking for parties and school events.  I am also teaching two nights a week and things are just getting too busy!  HOWEVER, I am in love with what is happening.  I am a BAKER!  I can’t say it enough, I love it!  When this months challenge was posted, I just had to make it.  We love pizza (my husband and I), especially when it is fresh.  Tossing it was a little harder than I thought, and I did get lazy and use caned sauce on one pizza.  The other pizza was topped with my all time favorite homemade white sauce, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil from my garden and leftover bacon.  The dough was great and we will be making this again!  Thanks, Rosa’s Yummy Yums

At Bonobo Cakes, I can take a simple 11″ round, 3-layer butter cake with blueberry buttercream filling and build a beautiful ocean scene complete with whale.  My Mother-in-Law commissioned this baby shower cake for her brother-in-law Thomas and his wife Heather.  This will be their first child, a son, Ty Alexander.  The cake is coated with Swiss buttercream.  The whale was built with pound cake and iced with Marshmallow Fondant.  The whale’s spray also included a small flag that said “Ahoy Ty”.  This was truly a cute cake.  Thanks for the order Cathy. I had a blast making it!

I would like to take a moment and thank all my loyal readers.  The blog has now reached 1000 hits.  I am so proud.  I am working on 2 major projects this month, as well as Halloween goodies.  Check back or sign up for this blog and you will get e-mail updates when I post next.  Hope you all have a great Monday!

Hello reader, this Blog is a real time biography for Bonobo Cakes. BC will become an official bakery sooner than later. For now however, we are closed. With the addition of a 3rd child, life is to important to stop and spend 24 hours strait on a cake. Although we love cake, it will be a while before we get back into baking on a large scale. Enjoy the stories and photos, but please ask prior to using any of our original information on another site. Thank you and Enjoy the blog as it was!
