Summer Baking

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!

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.

Do you remember the movie “The Thomas Crown Affair“? My better half and I watched it numerous time, one of our favourite part of the movie was when Pierce Brosnan dressed up as The Son of Man, the final heist scene was so clever and the soundtrack (Sinnerman) just über cool!

So when Carol asked me to make pull apart cupcakes cake based on Rene Magritte famous painting for her husband birthday celebration I was smiling from ear to ear, its a YES!

Happy Birthday Jon, wishing you many more years to celebrate.

Project of the day, United Nations flag pull apart cupcakes cake for Quynh farewell lunch. A few hiccups drawing the olive trees branches but loving the end result. Also I’ve made cut out sugar fondant with my favourite font only to realized at the very last minute that I don’t have space to put it on the cupcakes cake. Decided to just add her name instead and notified Leslie (whom ordered the cupcakes cake), she said its all good, YES!
