20 sore muscles and
2 large eye bags later...
I faithfully return to my blogging realm where I shall continue my daily entries on my neverending love for baking and cooking. For those who've missed me; I've miss you too *wink* LOL. It's amazing to see my site hits shooting past 12k despite me not having any new entries for people to read. I can tell quite a number of people are eager to see what I have to say next...*blush* Im overwhelmed :).My family and I spent 10 entire days attached to each other's hip, as our holiday zoomed from the Great Barrier Reef to the Snowy mountains in Perisher Blue. It was a great 10 days as it has been quite awhile since we've spent so much time together as a family. I definitely got the chance to realize how much has changed throughout the years. My parents are pretty glad we've had some time away to do some family-bonding! Mom constantly tells me that it's not easy for our personalities to change as we grow older; but I beg to differ. My sis and I have grown and changed so much to the extent that I sometimes don't remember her anymore....one thing which stays quite the same, would be how we always seem to constantly get on each others nerves! The only difference is, we now fight and argue about other issues...and inflicting physical pain on the enemy is out of fashion. Haha. I love my Jie (elder sister); despite the many meaningless evil remarks I make at times I wish I could be as intelligent or confident.
I would like to introduce to everyone, my dear sister;Su San (not Susan!) helping me in the kitchen with dad's birthday cupcake...the Kitchen is probably one of the few places where I'm the leader and she's the assistant!
Dad doesn't really have a sweet tooth and so we decided to make him a small chocolate lava cupcake with soft- goeey-chocolate hidden in the center. The trick to the 'lava' was made simply with the help of several dark chocolate Lindt truffles! I'm such a cheat, but there wasn't any other option as I had only one egg in the fridge!! *laughs*
Remember these little white chocolate cupcakes I mentioned a week ago....well the same basic idea was used; I swapped the dark chocolate with white and topped them with blueberries!
(My 'secret' recipe for the chocolate cupcake batter was made up and scribbled on a sheet of paper at the start of the video! I'll let you guys have go at making out what the numbers stood for! *evil grin*)
Here's a tip: The numbers were: 60, 60, 1, 23, 23. For those who bake often; you would probably know what they stood for straight away! Haha
