Christmas cookies and happy hearts, this is how the holiday starts
PS. Pineapple-filled cookie (Nastar) is one of the classic popular cookies baked during Christmas and holiday season in Indonesia.
PPS. The first batch of these cookies didn’t last long in our home, nom nom!
The last few weekends I was baking back to back Matilda the musical theme cupcakes for my friend Terrence, such a nice break from all the holidays baking! The first week was vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting and edible print Matilda topper. The week after was pull apart cupcakes cake based on the musical poster, so much fun!
I love birthdays.
In my household, planning a birthday party is almost as exciting as the party itself, we all chimed in with theme and ideas. This year, for her 12th birthday, my daughter asked to have a few school friend to celebrate her special day with merienda at her favourite teppanyaki restaurant (Ogetsu Hime in SM Aura, the teppanyaki chef are great entertainer too!) followed by watching movie (Justice League) at Director’s Club. As for her birthday cupcakes she requested vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting and chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream, I was only allowed to put a dash of red on it (for good luck!).
Little Miss had a blast and so did we, mission accomplished.
Happy Birthday Ariel ❤
