Happy Valentines Day 2012

Who new Valentines Day could be this busy.  I woke up at 6:20 am to package the 47 heart shaped shortbread cookies.  Feed the kids cereal, get  lunches ready, and then get myself ready to drop off the kids to SAB.  I rushed back home to package the Red Velvet cupcakes I made for the teachers and their assistants.

Cupcake holder was designed and handmade by me.

Unfortunately I ran out of the cellophane so made single cupcake boxes ...

Red for L <3 VE !!! 
I wanted to be in School by 10:30 am to see Charisma's Valentines party but I didn't get there until 10:45 am.  After kindergarten we went to WEM Galaxyland playground for a Valentines Day Playdate with some of Charisma's classmate.  It was fun chitchatting with some of the mom's at SAB (Sister Annata Brockman school)...

Lucky Guy! Have 3 dates on Valentines Day.
I guess that explains the big grin on his face.

Until Charisma came out crying. She was upset because no one wants her to be the leader.  She cried for AWHILE until everyone apologized and let her be the leader.  THen... I saw her crying yet again but this time she was just pretending.  Huh?  I really thought she was crying.  

Tomorrow are the kids Skating school field trip.  It would be Charisma's first time setting foot on the ice.  I'm curious to see if she is really going to go through with it.  I "girled-up" her helmet hoping this would motivate her to go on the ice.

I went crazy with rhinestones. I'm planing on adding more.

After all this Chris came home with sushi and we had Valentines dinner together.  Chris did the dishes.  I helped the kids with their homework and then put them to sleep... XOXOXO muahh!!!

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

Hello Kitty Cupcake Cake

 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! Hello Kitty in her turtle.  Baby its cold out here. -31 with -40 windchill. Pipped roses on individual cupcakes using Wilton tip #1M.  Cover gaps with more icing. This is how I arranged the ube cupcakes.  31 all together.

Easy Soccer Ball cake

This soccer ball cake is easy to make.  To create the soccer ball shape I used a approximately 8" Stainless steel bowl, and an 8" round cake pan. You may use glass bowl but you have to reduce cooking time.    This is how I assembled my soccer cake. The naked cake... As you can see there are 3 layers to this cake.  The bottom layer is 8" round cake.  The top layers are just one bowl shaped cake that I split into two sections.   I stack the layers first to see how they fit together.  I noticed that the middle layer overhangs a bit on the 8" round cake.  I trimmed off the excess cake using a sharp carving knife.   Each layer is filled with chocolate buttercream. Chocolate crumb coat...  This part can be omitted since we are applying the buttercream with an icing tip.  I crumb coated chocolate for added flavor because having just the white vanilla icing is too boring.   Do not worr
