I was in the mood of making cuppies, hence I made these for my son's schoolmate's birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Chloe!
Having 12 of them sat in a cupcake box make them look even more attractive.
A baking session I had with a sweet girl who wanted to make some cuppies to surprise her boyfriend who will celebrate his birthday tomorrow. She wants to show her love and thought through these sweet pretty cupcakes. I am so glad she is pleased with the end result.

The second pie made for the BBQ. The vibrant colour of the strawberries will never fail to attract people's eyes.
Both berries made a great marriage for the pie be it the colours or the taste. Couple with the custard cream that is smooth and creamy...... I am one weird lady who loves the pie crust most!!

Making some pies and rolls for a BBQ this afternoon. Thought something tangy would be suitable for our hot and humid weather.
The colour and the cut out design look much like an Autumn season pie.... I love the combination of apple,pear and yuzu with cream cheese for the pie filling. Eat it chilled and feeling fresh would be it!!

A recipe that should have rose powder ( Which I have no idea where to get) in the bread, but I make do with cheese and maple sugar filling. The pictures of the buns caught my eyes, while flipping through the recipe book and I thought just make use of any other ingredients to replace the rose powder would do. Though it'd be a bun that looks like a rose as well as taste like a rose!! I didn't do a good job to make the buns look like roses, but I do think the texture and taste are great for a simple breakfast. However, my little boy said they look like his belly button!! :-/ May be I shall do another cinnamon rose next.
Bread Flour 15g
Unsalted butter 10g
Sour Cream/ Yogurt 55g
Warm Water 50g
Slice Cheese 4 pieces
Maple Sugar (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients and form a rough dough. Knead the dough till smooth and springy. Leave to rise for 60 minutes, till the dough gets to double the volume.
2. Divide dough into 8 small portion 30-35g each. Roll up to ball shapes. Rest for 10 minutes.
3. Roll each small round dough to flat circles and fill in cheese and maple sugar and roll up like a Swiss Roll. Top the filled dough onto another flat dough and roll up again , then cut the center and you will get 2 ends that look like a rose. Sit the flat base on a baking sheet or cupcake case. Let them rise for 30-40 minutes. Bake the buns in pre heated oven at 180'c for 12 minutes. Cool them on wire rack after baked.

A new recipe I have never tried before, and the result was really out of my expectation!
Added a little chocolate filling in the bread give an extra taste and texture.
I supposed not many people would think of having chocolate flavour when comes to baguettes. However, I did it simply because a friend of mine is so fond of the brown bread from Cheese Cake factory in the US where they serve this sweet brown bread ( most people call it) that doesn't taste anything chocolate at all. She brought some for me to try hoping I could figure out what the brown baguette actually made of. So I thought give the chocolate a try, but my baguette taste like CHOCOLATE BAGUETTE. So the possibility of chocolate is OUT!!
Next thing I could think of would be Molasses sugar. But that I will have to work out a totally new recipe as molasses has kind of sticky texture.... Do wish me luck ya!!
Is anyone of you out there do have an idea what could I make my baguette brown( really brown) and sweet, do help me out with it please. Thanks!
