Making Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

I came up with a chocolate mint cupcakes prep board and made a piping bag for the first time. I'm glad it came out rather well. I made this prep board whilst waiting for the arrival of my baby. I was really bored then. Could only wait at home as I was too "big" to go anywhere.

And finally, the day arrived. My little bundle of joy... sleeping with arms and legs sprawled out just like the tom boy mother. ^_^

Check out the choc mint cupcakes and other new items in my Etsy store.

Fruit tarts in special October

Yup i last updated my blog only 4 days ago... but since I finally have some peace n quiet, and I don't know when I can have some peace n quiet again, might as well make another entry for October 2010.

This October is going to be a special month. There are two special dates which makes everyone scrambling to hold their weddings - 10.10.10 and 20.10.2010. It's rather memorable. For me, October is special because it's the month of my father's birthday and also my little gal's birthday (though I don't know which date yet).

Whilst waiting for the day to come, I made some fruit tarts - mini ones of coz as I can hardly cook a decent meal in real life. It's also the first time I made raspberries. Can you spot them? It's not clear from the photos (try enlarging them) as the tarts are glossed. But they are indeed raspberries made of many many tiny balls of clay.

Currently available at Etsy.

Beignets = Donuts ?

Yahoo... exams over! Freedom!!! The feeling is great and I had better enjoy it whilst I can.

Here is a set of miniature beignets custom made for a customer. I've not heard of beignets before this. They are a kind of pastry coated with confectioner's sugar and taste like donuts. Or do they actually belong to the donut family? *scratch head* Never mind, I'm just glad that my customer is happy with these beignets.

In the process of churning more miniatures... stay tuned ^_^

Oops, realised I have the same backdrop for the past few posts... It's purely coincidental! I promise it will be something different the next round.
