Chocolate Drip Cake

It means “Thank You” in Russian.

My very first chocolate drip cake, I’ve made it for my daughter Gymnastics Coach farewell party. Loving the glossy result of the chocolate ganache, very pretty! Will try it on cupcakes one day soon.

Rosie The Pink Turtle

My first project after Summer break, a pull apart cupcakes cake with Rosie Beanie Boo theme for Rose 6th Birthday, loved it! I decided to use a few different piping tips to give the drawing different buttercream textures. My own daughter whom collects TY plush toys animal herself ( that makes her an expert haha), so I asked her feedback when I’m done drawing Rosie the pink turtle on the cupcakes cake, guess what … she gave me 2 thumbs up, hooray!

Happy Birthday Rose ♥️

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.
