Happy Easter from Bali

We are currently visiting my parents in Bali over Spring break and having a lovely time. The weather has been perfect, loving my morning walk at the beach with my daughter and chillin’ by poolside catching up with the family, definitely my kind of holiday!

Wishing you all a Happy Easter with your loved ones.

Tania told me in the beginning of this year that their family will be relocating to Atlanta in Spring, I couldn’t believe it at first but congratulated her anyway and thought its plenty of time and we’ll be fine (secretly hoping they changed their mind!). Just like that we all went on with our family routines (kiddos swimming competitions, Fobisia Phuket, ladies lunches, school events, etc) and suddenly our days with The Nevelos were numbered! Paul left Manila for good last weekend (sniff sniff) and the rest of the gang more or less have another week left in Manila. Unfortunately this is part of living the Expatriate life, we said hello and goodbye simultaneously throughout the year but obviously saying the later is much harder.

Cut the story short, after several send-off parties  (lots of sobbing went on ) and  teary eyes moments whenever we bumped in school corridor,  finally I’m able to focus my energy by creating this pull apart cupcakes cake for The Nevelos kiddos send off party. Tania asked me to do something with swimming (I’ve made a swimming race pull apart cupcakes cake similar like the one I made for Alexander on his birthday couple years back) and football (grass and football topper is my favourite!), I set them all up in a large cake tray and voila! a sport theme party cupcakes ready to go.

Anyway, to my dearest Tania, it is the end of an era for our cheering Mum squad but I’m looking forward to hear everything about your new adventure and knowing you, all will fall in place the moment you landed in Atlanta. It is not a goodbye my friend, till we meet again,  love you lots!

Mario 2-1

One of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (from the amazing Harry Potter book of course), founded by Godric Gryffindor which emblematic animal is a lion, and its colours are red and gold.

“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart”
—The Sorting Hat

This coat of arm pull apart cupcakes cake is definitely my favourite project of the week, I love the vibrant colours on the cupcakes. I’ve got 5 different shades of red buttercream and 3 different shades of gold buttercream to create the different textures and shading, loved it ❤

Happy 10th birthday Mario!
