Girly Cupcakes for my Girly Godchild

IMG_3553

It was the 2nd birthday of my godchild Roan.
I know I am not an expert baker but I still wanted to bake for her.
So I decided to bake chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting.
And to make it girly, I used pink as the main color with some fancy silver and pink sprinkles and a pink candle.
I also used my small teddy bear to complete the presentation.

She was very happy while watching me bake and she even got a bowl and spoon pretending she was also baking. Cute!

Okay, I’ll keep this post short.
I just wanted to share how baking can give so much fulfillment and happiness I can’t explain. 🍰

Chocolate² Cupcakes?
Coz they are chocolate cupcakes with chocolate toppings..

I baked this for my cousin’s birthday..
Actually I baked lotsa cupcakes that night and she also helped designing the cupcakes with my sprinkles and other toppings..
Then I realized I have different chocolates in my cupboard..
So I decided to design some cupcakes with chocolates.. 🙂

*I used Chocolate Ganache for the frosting..
I used buttercream the week before so I wanted to try something else..

Below is the picture of all the cupcakes I made for my cousin’s birthday.

The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe

Chocolate Cake.
Who will ever hate chocolate cakes?

For me, I am not into sweet stuff so I do not like cakes that are too sweet.
I am glad that I found a perfect recipe- thank you to BHM page in Facebook.
I saw a lot of members saying that Hershey’s Chocolate Cake recipe is the best..
So since I was new to baking, I tried their advice and it was a success!

The cake itself is perfect.
It is chocolate-y but not too sweet.
Ever since, I have been using this recipe for my chocolate cakes and cupcakes.
If you are new in baking, use Hershey’s recipe and you won’t go wrong- I promise!

My First Try.. No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake!

When I was working in Singapore I didn’t have the luxury of time to do things aside from work..
Learning a new hobby is not feasible because I was a busy woman back then- haha.

I was grateful that when I went back to the Philippines last February 2015, I had lots of time on my hands..
Plus- we wanted to open a Cafe back then so suddenly I became interested in baking..

June 27, 2015 when I started to try baking hence, the photos above.
I know the photo above is a “No-Bake Cheesecake” so technically it is not baking-
but this started my passion in baking.
I saw myself baking cakes and such week after week.

By the way, it tasted good because actually with Oreos, you’ll never go wrong.. 🙂
No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake Tutotial

I am not into sweets and I am really not a fan of chocolates..
However, when I started baking, I also started to crave for chocolate cakes and stuff..
It was weird but I continued baking because I felt a sense of fulfillment everytime I see and taste my finish product..

Okay, I won’t keep this long..
This is just a brief history but later on I’ll be posting some of my baked goods and their recipes.. 🙂
