Cookie Sandwich

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!

Little Miss Holiday

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!

Oh Christmas Tree

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 ❤

Happy Holidays!

Isn’t this lovely?

I LOVE 2 tone colours on rose swirl frosting, it’s simple yet truly elegant. These are Angel’s special order for ADOBO Magazine, chocolate cupcakes made of organic eggs and organic whole wheat flour with buttercream frosting, absolutely scrumptious ❤
