A Cake Perfect for Caffeine Addicts and Shopaholics


Whew! This is what I said when I finished this cake.  I was nervous last night thinking that this cake is going to look horrible. But hey not bad for my first fondant purse cake.  The purse and its base is coffee sponge cake. The whole cake is filled and frosted with coffee buttercream.  The purse is covered in pink and black fondant.  I used gumpaste to make the satin shoes, and purple roses.  Enjoy the cake Josephine and Happy Birthday!  Please leave a comment.  Thank you!

This is my favourite.  I put together 37 cupcakes to create this cute hello Kitty cake.

The amount of icing sugar, vanilla extract, and milk can be modified to suit your taste.  Beat the butter until smooth then add the rest of the ingredients beat everything on medium speed on electric beater until smooth.  Enjoy!






Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
