Audrey’s tiny bump that we’ve celebrated with a Pink Baby Showers several months back now turns into a beautiful bouncing baby girl. The Liu family invited us to baby Larissa lovely 100 days celebration over the weekend so I’ve got to see her in person for the first time. She’s absolutely adorable!
For the special occasion Audrey’s asked me to make flower garden theme cupcakes with soft pastel colours combination, such a nice break from all the farewell’s theme cupcake, LOVE it!
Some photos of us from the party, enjoy.
Nothing beat freshly baked cupcake for breakfast
To all our dearest readers and followers around the world, wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year 2016 ❤️
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself…

Don’t forget to bake cookies for Santa
My better half grew up with Dulce de Leche (a traditional Argentinian caramel made by caramelizing sugar in milk), everytime I made cookie sandwich I only have 2 options for the filling: Caramel or Chocolate. This time around I’m only using home made caramel in baked sugar cookies and chocolate cookies, absolutely delish!
School Christmas break is ON, wohooo!
I’ve got my little helper back in the kitchen, LOVED it! She always helps me with my holiday baking, every year I’ve noticed the big improvement, her hands are more steady when she decorate cookies and she’s very neat with her workmanship, I’m such a lucky Mama.
She’s done in the kitchen and shifting to her craft table. In between her cards making and lego building nothing beat a glass of cold milk and her freshly baked candy cane shape chocolate cookies, JOY!
Made my very first Christmas Tree pull apart cupcakes cake for our Annual Christmas dinner party this evening. My daughter loved it, she said I should make it every Christmas from now on and I think she’s right, making mental note here for the next year to do list.
Since we arrived in Manila couple years back, we’ve invented this lovely traditions of white elephant christmas party for my better half and his company managers, upon popular requests dinner is always a mixed selection of Indonesian food (oxtail soup, beef rendang, pulled pork ribs, jukut be guling, etc), its a nice excuse for me to cook up a storm ❤
