Swan Wedding Cake

Yesterday I went to Tita Ila and Tito Boyet's wedding.  The ceremony was beautifully officiated by Rev. Bill MacGillivray.  He brought out the couple's faith and love in God.  The cutest part of the wedding is when they sealed the wedding with a kiss.  Tito Boyet was sweating bullets as he attempts to kiss Tita Ila.  He was so shy that the kiss turned into a peck on the cheeks.    Hehehe maybe when no one is around Tito Boyet can give Tita Ila a "real kiss".   



I am really honoured to make Tita Ila and Tito Boyet's wedding cake.  It is a coffee sponge cake covered in coffee buttercream frosting.  The swan and briar roses are made out of gumpaste.  This is also my first wedding cake.  





I also made cupcakes of the same flavour but I topped the cupcake off with coffee shortbread cookies dipped in white chocolate.



This is my little girl Charisma with the flower girl Trish.  The other is my cousin Aljo from LA.  Please leave a comment.

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

 This is my favourite.  I put together 37 cupcakes to create this cute hello Kitty cake. Buttercream Recipe: 1 cup butter at room temperature 4 cups sifted icing sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoon milk 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!

This is how I arranged the ube cupcakes.  31 all together.

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. Pilipit Ingredients: 2 eggs 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil 2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand) 3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dr
