Crossing over a hurdle


For a person like me who is more of a "doer" than a "planner", getting my hands at things works better for me. Yesterday, I finally completed the fondant cake for my daughter. Since last month, I have been planning and practicing on the fondant toppers - hello kitty, doraemon, roses, flowers, ribbon bow, angry birds, etc... Finally, I did Blossom from Powerpuff girls :p The only reason is, it is easier to make 2D Powerpuff girls with the tools I have :D Originally, my girl requested for a My Little Ponies cake, which was too challenging for me :D We negotiated and she requested for any cartoon, and if I could make Powerpuff girls, she would be very happy.

Chocolate Sponge Cupcake with Chocolate Ganache




Lately, I have been practicing decorating cupcakes with fondant, as well as finding the ultimate cupcake recipe  to prepare for my daughter's birthday at the end of this month. It may be too exaggerating to say that the preparation has been "nerve-wrecking", but sometimes it does feel that way! :p I have not done fondant for more than a year.

Banana Chocolate Chips Cupcake


I baked this banana chocolate chips cupcakes for breakfast this morning. This is a simple recipe to follow. Thanks to Carol 自在生活 for sharing this wonderful recipe :) Carol is a 大师级的博客喔 :)

In order to make the cupcakes more appealing to my daughter, I added chocolate chips to the batter together with the mashed bananas. And she likes the cupcakes! :)
