A Cake and A Cupcake

Posted in Baking at 11:39 am by Riam

I was reviving my baking hobby recently and have tried doing the chocolate cake and yellow cupcake at home. Frosting is not part of the activity but I enjoy baking the base in itself.
The topping I did in the yellow cupcake is a whip cream straight from the can but it deflate easily after few minutes.
I think the frosting in the online recipes are much better but I havent tried anything yet.
Here are some photos.

Did this gift set for my co-worker’s new baby. A set of this I think will be used even if the little one grows up, not toys nor clothes that will soon be unused as soon as the baby grows up after few months.

I used my Baby invite stamps from Stampendous. For the card, I put some embellishments on squares, diecut hearts and tiny blessings and dots folder in the gift tag. I also stamp the same giraffe on my greeting card and matching envelope.

Bad blogger

Posted in Miscellaneous at 9:52 am by Riam

I must admit, I’m a bad blogger. Can you imagine I haven’t updated my blog for months! So many activities set in the past months and these occupied my time. Busy as a bee ..
Have tried some cookie recipes but haven’t had the chance to upload photos and details in here.
Hope to make it up this time.

Geerbe my godchild is celebrating his first birthday on Friday, 1 April. It’s a last minute plan but I decided to offer a take away cookie for the kids called Madeleines. I baked a full recipe last night as a warm up and tried to package them as a set with my handmade tag with Geerbe’s photo. This is what I came up with.

I tried to use my newly bought mini loaf pan to bake my favorite banana bread recipe. One pan can hold half a dozen minis, just enough to bake one full recipe in one go. Here is wat I got..
