Little Miss loves Anzac biscuits ever since she learned how to make it as part of her year group school activity during their World War 2 topic (she told me that before being named Anzac biscuits, these biscuits were said to have been called Soldier’s biscuits being Oats as the main ingredient, along with the other ingredients – sugar, flour, coconut, butter, golden syrup and bi-carbonate of soda – were used because they would be able to withstand the long journey via ship that the biscuits had to make to reach the troops).
Knowing her love of anything with chocolate I decided to tweak the original Anzac biscuits recipe by using coconut sugar and adding dark chocolate chips in it.
The result? Can’t keep them long enough in our home, the Anzac biscuits jar is running low so fast that Little Miss requested to bake it every other day. She even agreed to bake it under my supervision, love it!
My current baking obsession, Meringue Kisses! They are sweet, crisp and light which made it so irresistible. I’m working on a few different flavours these days (and eating them too!) so watch this space xx
Life is short, eat dessert first ❤
Little Miss is on Summer Break (week 2 and counting), today she wants to decorate the birthday cupcakes I made for Tess. She choose the sprinkles and the Wilton piping tip, I’ve guided her to do a swirl frosting once and she was good to go. Very impressed with her steady hand, way to go Nini!
Happy Birthday Tess xoxo
Yes, that’s right, I baked 150 cupcakes (50 Chocolate, 50 Vanilla and 50 Red Velvet) for my daughter year group Moving Up Party in school. It was so much fun to be part of the party but I forgot how troublesome transporting cupcakes were! Thank goodness for my better half, he was calm and managed to deliver them from our 57th floor apartment all the way to the British School Manila, gracias mi amor ❤
The Party was a great success! Parents, teachers and kiddos had a blast, there were lots of food, drinks, games and dancing, welcome to the Senior School Class 2024.
