Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

My next attempt was the valentine’s day cupcakes in 2008, yes, ages ago! Again I saw the nice lovely design of Weennee’s cupcakes in Love-A-Cupcake, and decided to try out the same designs and selling the cupcakes to my colleagues to collect some money for church charity. Here’s the out come.
I don’t really like buttercream, so I thought maybe I can just try using pure whipped cream as my topping. Little did I know that whipped cream can’t really go well with fondant topping and it will wept! As a result, you can see my cupcakes topping is actually weeping :( Compare with love-a-cupcake, it is way to go!!! I am very pleased that my colleagues are quite happy with the taste and even the “weeping” cupcakes design.
I even attempted to make some mini cakes with fondant cover. It was a disaster! It looks really ugly and unprofessional!

I can’t believed that my husband and colleagues are willing to eat it and finished all of them! I hope in future when I have time, I will try again and hope this time will be a success.

My First Pineapple Tart

uddenly I had craving for pineapple tart. I can recalled vividly the picture of round and yummy pineapple tart just right infront of my eyes. I miss the pineapple tart from Singapore which Eugene gave to us as our wedding present years ago. They were so yummy until I can finish the whole box within a day! To ease my craving, I start searching online for the pineapple tart. Most of the recipe are normal sunflower type of pineapple tart, not the round type I wanted. I can’t recall from which web site I found this recipe for round yummy pineapple tart, but thanks to girl who shared the recipe, the tarts are so yummy! I enjoy my time making them as well. But my hubby said they looks like Penang "Tao Sa Pneah" :(
After blogging this, it makes me feel like baking them to eat again!
