Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting and royal icing halloween theme topper, Angel’s order.
My Mum used to baked Marbled cake for me and my siblings on our birthdays. Since October is my birthday month I recreated my childhood memory as the flavour of the month cupcake. There is something satisfying in every bite of this particular marbled cupcake, you’ve got the creamy vanilla taste, subtle dark chocolate taste and sweet frosting at the same time, really extra ordinary, trust me. One more thing, I love how the cupcakes turns out in Neapolitan look a like, such a pretty tricolori.
Anyway, to all October babies out there, Happy Birthday to us xoxo
On the last weekend of my daughter school midterm break we went to Subic Bay (around 3 hours drive from Manila) to a place called Anvaya Cove. It was an overcast day with a possibility typhoon mentioned in the local weather forecast but we decided to go ahead with our little getaway plan. So happy we follow our gut feeling, it turns out to be an awesome day. I’ve got several great shot from the highway with my iPhone (my favourite one is the image above), my daughter race the 8th Invitational Anvaya Cove Triathlon in age group 9-10 and won the 1st place in her category! Such a sweet ending to the break and on top of that she’s got to play with her BFF over the weekend ( chasing waves in the ocean and roasted marshmallow after dinner was a big hit). The next day my better half triathlon race were not cancelled but the organizer decided to omit the swim and bike part so he ends up doing the running race part only. Lucky for us he did couple of loops passing our villa so we’re able to cheer for him.
Cut the story short, we all had a blast, can’t wait to go back to beach again, enjoy the photos.
My daughter was selected to represent her club for Gymnastics FOBISIA in Bangkok Pattana International School of Thailand, I’m the lucky Mama that got to go accompanying her. She did very well in her first ever International gymnastics competition, words can’t express how very proud my husband and I, absolutely thrilled that she found a sport that she really loves. Within 5 months she goes from zero to competitive level, hard days definitely pays off ❤️
PS. After the competition we stayed 4 days longer, had so much fun reminiscing our old stomping ground, checking out new places and catching up with good friends, love Krungthep Mahanakhon maak maak!
My good friend Tania asked me to make pull apart cupcakes cake for her son birthday party over the weekend, since its a join birthday party with another boy she asked me to bake for Zach as well. The theme that she requested were football jersey (Alex love Manchester United and Zach likes Barca), coincidentally they both like number 10 on the Jersey (Rooney & Messi!) so I decided to add extra cupcakes with the celebratory greetings on it.
I’m using edible print for the respective football club logo, finally found a great supplier in Manila after living here for almost 3 years!
Happy 11th birthday Alexander & Zach.
Time flies, last year I’ve made this Frozen theme cupcakes for Eriko’s 5th birthday and suddenly she’s turning 6 this week. Her birthday party theme is Art in the Garden so her Mum asked me to make blossom topper on her birthday cupcake, one of my favourite topper! There’s something about the soft pastel buttercream colours and the beautiful shapes of the flowers that just so soothing in the eyes, don’t you think?
Happy 6th birthday Eriko Chan.
