Last week, Don's mom gave us a cluster of bananas that were already very ripe. We can't eat all of it up before it becomes over riped, so I peeled the leftovers, placed it in a ziplock bag and froze it. This is not only to avoid spoilage, but it's also good for spur of… Continue reading Banana Walnut Bread
It's been 2 months since my last post. I've been too swamped at work and it really bums me out not being able to blog more. So I'm starting this month with another cupcake creation. This is a classic cake flavor and I hope you enjoy making (and eating) it as much as I did!… Continue reading Tiramisu Cupcakes

I don't have that much industry experience per se, but I like to experiment, try to re-create and… Continue reading Prawns Thermidor
So Don proposed that I do their office's monthly birthday cupcakes. And I plan to make different flavored ones! So for this month, I made Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. I intended to color the buttercream to lilac or lavender shade. But I guess I put too much red food gel and this is what… Continue reading Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
