Happy 25th Birthday to my amazing other half, who is the best eating companion anyone could ask for :D
He doesn’t know it yet but I baked him a vanilla butter cake with lemon buttercream frosting. It was my first attempt at doing ombre icing and I’m quite happy with it, but it’s far from perfect. Perhaps I should google some ombre icing tips next time, though I know I can hold my head up high for the fact I did it on my own ;)
Can’t wait to dig in tonight!! =D
Cake Pops have become a huge thing lately and I think Bakerella just may have something to do with it. There is everything right with a bite sized piece of cake, mixed with frosting, rolled up into a ball, shoved on a lollipop stick and decorated to your liking. What wouldn’t you love about that?
It’s perfect for any, if not all, occassions and there are endless opportunities to let your creativity run wild. Continuing with my baking obsession I thought I would show you just some of the things I’ve made for all sorts of reasons. Credit does go to Bakerella who I find absolutely inspirational and some of my ideas have been derived (note, not copied) from hers. I really hope you enjoy this photo post to come =)
Those who follow me on instagram would know I’ve been baking quite the bit lately. I’ve always had an interest in baking. Back in the high school days I would try to bake my girlfriends something for their birthday even if it meant out of a packet and asking my parents how to use the hand mixer and oven. So really, all I’d do is mix the ingredients and my parents would do the rest. Times have definitely changed.
I must say that being an Aunty has definitely ignited the bigger baking spark in me. Nothing beats baking and designing a personalised cake (or any other baked treats) for the ones you love most. A big thank you goes out to the Boy who supports me and helps me when I’m about to fall apart because things just don’t go to plan.
It’s time to show you some of the things I’ve made over the past months….
Happy Mums Day to all the mummies out there :)
I would just like to take this opportunity to wish my cousin Jerry, and my soon-to-be cousin, Joshua, a happy wedding day for tomorrow (April 28, 2012). JJ, here’s to your perfect wedding day and a lifetime full of happiness, love, hugs, laughter, smiles and desserts. xoxo
