DDUBlicious - Donnie Wahlberg Cake

I have been a BLOCKHEAD since Junior High and the least I can do for Donnie is to make him a cake in honour of his birthday (August 17).  Its just a little thank you for serenading Blockheads through out the world.  I tweeted the pic and I am hoping I would get a mention or perhaps a follow.  If not I had loads of fun making it and that is good enough for me.

Donnie is so busy with his TV series "Blue Blood" and his CherryTree radio show "DDUBS Backrub".  A busy guy like Donnie usually drinks loads of coffee so I made a coffee chiffon cake filled and frosted with coffee buttercream.  The image I did using the trusty old star tip and used vanilla buttercream icing.

Donnie is our desert after our spicy eggplant lunch.
Me and Donnie Cake.  ^_^

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.

Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

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.



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 dry)
