Sugar Art in Michigan

It's been a very busy start to April for me.  Michigan Ices had their Great Lakes Mini Class and Michigan Sugar Art Showcase.  Amazing how many talented instructors that traveled from near and far all in one place.

A trip to the vendor's room and a delicious banquet dinner is how we ended our wonderful and creative weekend!

I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.

As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…
