Let's Bake with Puteri & I
Thursday, November 29, 2007 my lacey cupcakes in turqoise/aqua (?)

look at that people... normally here in this blog i posted food pics only. my readers know that its very rare for me to post any other pics. well its different this time. as you could see i looked so happy, after managed to decorate my cupcakes in turqoise/aqua colour.

the story: i did'nt tell anyone at home of what colour i wanna do. once i have done, i asked mom about what colour of frosting that she was looking at. i was like... "yippeee!", when she said turqoise immediately without need the time to think. that means, one mission accomplished here hehe... then my mom asked, "why?". so i told her that i juz wanna make sure that i got the colour i wanted right :)

"turquoise is normally a mix of green and blue, so depending on what exact shade you want to achieve, you will need both pale green and pale blue gel colours. add a dab of each and mix thoroughly, then adjust according to how you want the colour, more green, or more blue..."

i would like to say tqsm to Just Cupcakes! for the tips of making this colour i.e. turqoise/aqua

kechikkkkk!!!... what say you? ;)

btw these are all for my loved ones in kl. and as usual, my only wish is that they will like my cupcakes...

"KL AGAIN?", you asked? well yes... this time i am going here. say hi if you see me k? hehe...

Sunday, November 25, 2007 mint chocolate cupcakes

i have been dying to try this recipe from the book 500 cupcakes & muffins by fergal connolly. it taste good... and hmm... whats more when the hershey's chocolate chips i used in the cupcakes melted... it make the cupcakes kinda moist, just like the moist chocolate cake. yummy... i guess thats why i read somewhere that we are advised to use a good quality chocolate to get the great taste! btw mom commented that it taste like a toothpaste lol...

i completed this after lunch, just on time for our tea time ;) so what about you people? what you had with your tea today?

Monday, November 19, 2007 more cupcakes order going off to kl

this is all thanx to kak zaireen. after the first time she bought three boxes of Box of 9 during raya, she really promote my cupcakes to all her friends in kl. i know... why ordered here all the way in kuale, and not in kl itself? well... the most important thing here is that they like my cupcakes ;)

kak zaireen called me last week to place an order. i was so glad though that her friend wanted to buy my cupcakes for her son's birthday on this wednesday. since they didn't give any specs, only "apa-apa" (anything), i assume that its for guest. here's what i managed to do for her, blue & purple cupcakes, with a touch of yellow--

blue & yellow cupcakes

purple & yellow cupcakes

this one for kak zaireen

Thursday, November 15, 2007 the day i attended a christmas cupcakes course

Sunday, November 11, 2007 cookies & cream cupcakes

this is again, from the book 500 cupcakes & muffin by fergal connolly. previously i tried peanut butter cupcakes. it was a hit i tell you. it finished by afternoon, the following day. take note that with a stick of butter, i can make an approximately more than 2 dozens of cupcakes. owh!... i so lurve this book, wait till i try more and more recipes.

in fact this morning i baked cookies & cream cupcakes. so when we say cookies and cream, its always synonym with oreo cookies! thus... i guess we could also called it oreo cupcakes. besides not just my kids, i love it sooo much too! we have all tried it. although its sooo sweet but we love it hmm.... yummy!!!... you could see it from megat's expression (right pic). especially puteri
and megat, whose eaten more than 3 pieces. yes! you read it right. they have ate 3 or more. after i snapped megat's pic, he told me that he wants to bring 3 of them to school tomorrow, for him to share them with his best friends. "you always make me proud mama!", megat told me ;)

Monday, November 05, 2007 peanut butter cupcakes

its been a week since our premise is (temporarily) closed for some renovation works. thus... i decided to bake this peanut butter cupcakes for tea time, just before i fetch puteri from school. so we dropped by a mini supermarket in town to buy butter right away!

i followed the recipe from the book 500 cupcakes & muffins by fergal connolly. its yummy i tell you, no matter with or without the peanut butter icing. at first i thought of making some swirls like what the book suggested. unfortunately the crunchy peanut butter i was using got a lil' bit of peanuts. but although its tiny, i still didn't manage to do it. besides that, the icing was a bit soft and creamy. at last i just spread it out onto the cupcakes ;)
