Back to School

citrus cupcakesThese are citrus cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting and orange sprinkles. I’ve whipped out 2 batches of this particular recipe of mine, 1 batch for cupcakes and 1 batch for madeleines (my daughter favourite item in her school snack box). Yes, our Little Miss started the new school year this week. We’ve had a very busy week towards the end of her summer break, she competed in a swimming race in Lucena City, Quezon Province (around 3 hours drive from Manila), won 4 gold medals (broke PASCAI swimming record for 100m Butterfly stroke in her age group) and Most Outstanding Swimmer Girls 9 Years Old, we are very proud of her.

Now that she’s back in school I can have more “ME” time, cheers to that!
