Spring Meet

comp

Its a wrap! BSM 3rd Gymnastics Spring Meet 2017 was a great success, over 300 athletes competed in MAG level 1-2 and WAG level 1-3, everyone had a great time! My Gluten Free Brownies and Brookies table did awesome, my better half was working his charm and all baked goodies were gone before noon. My daughter did a brilliant assistant judge duty, such a productive weekend for our family. I must admit though, it took me a week to recover from planning the Spring Meet as part of the Lions Gymnastics Committee AND baking for the competition day. Oh, almost forgot, the sweetest part of the competition was seeing my Cupcakes Frenzy logo pop up on the screen among the rest of the sponsors for the whole day, YAAYYY!

Last but not least, thank you to all committee members, AGP kiddos & Parents, BSM Team & Parents, generous Sponsors and all Coaches, WE DID IT!

Brookies

Aka Brownie Cookies, my family latest baked goodies obsession. Its crunchy but soft in the middle, very chocolatey and the best part, its Gluten Free! I’ve baked loads of them in the past few days, tweaking my recipe into perfection and trust me, it’s absolutely delicious. One happy baker here ❤

Icebox Cookies

Also called refrigerator cookies (a type of cookie in which the dough is prepared, rolled into a log shape, and refrigerated until the dough is firm) is the secret to my last minute weekday baking. I always prepared the dough ahead of time, label it (FIFO system) and  keep plenty of them in the freezer. Whenever I need freshly baked cookies to fill my daughter snack bag I just sliced it and bake it in the oven.  She loves it when I mixed chocolate dough with vanilla dough, you get all kind of swirl pattern even a perfect letter C sometimes, isn’t it COOL?

Sunday Swim, Slime, Play

Once in a blue moon my daughter will asked me sweetly if she can have playdate on her day off. As you know, her daily schedule on weekdays were jam packed with school activities and sports training. Every few weekends I do give in and let her play the whole day, after all she’s just a child who happened to be an athlete.

After a few text messages on a sunny Sunday her friend Bea arrived and all I can hear were endless chatter and laughter, they had a good swim (both were swimmer), went tumbling in our apartment indoor kids playground (yup, both were gymnasts) and made DIY slime (I’m still not a big fan but I have no saying on this one, they’re crazy about it *sigh*). For their merienda I baked banana bread in mini heart shape tin, cooked ramen noodle with broccoli and sliced few oranges, not in the picture were cheese curls and mini chocolate bars that they chowed in between playing. It was really nice to see both girls had fun-tastic time and I promised them we’ll have another one plan very soon ❤
