Rainbow Velvet Cupcake

The theme of my neice's 2nd birthday is rainbow (March 16,2012).  So I made her my very own rainbow velvet cupcake.  This is a lemon cupcake frosted with lemon cream cheese icing.  On the outside its not a flashy cake but as soon as you cut into the cake a rainbow full of colours is revealed.

Divide cake batter into 5 bowls.  Dyed each bowl with
different colour using liquid food colouring.
Spoon each colour into the prepared cupcake tin.

Charisma and I are the only ones that are healthy enough to attend Sierra's birthday.  Earlier that day I got a phone call from SAB informing me that Bronze is not feeling well.  Its a good thing that I have the car that day and I was able to quickly pick up Bronze from school.  Turns out Bronze had an upset stomach from his antibiotics.  Chris had a bad cough. Cough plus restaurant is not a good combination so Chris just stayed home with Bronze.

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.
