Transformers Bumble Bee Pull Apart Cake

Yesterday we went to Xavier's (X for short)  birthday at Galaxyland West Edmonton Mall.  Soo many people! I thought the play area is going to fall apart.  There's just way too many kids in one spot.  The party started at 11 am.  We got there at 11:30 and there was a supper long line up at the entrance.  The line wasn't moving.  The customer  at the counter was taking too long and it looks like she was doing calculus with her money because she couldn't figure out what to pay the cashier.  We finally got our wrist band and we joined the rest of the group.

My first pull apart cake...

Marble cupcakes with chocolate buttercream.

How I made my pull apart cake...
21 cupcakes all together
I put a bit of icing underneath each cupcake so it would not move around while I am frosting them.  Next, I pipped frosting on individual cupcake.  Smooth out the frosting using a large offset spatula to cover up the gaps between each cupcake also to make it look like cake.  I did such a good job at smoothing out the frosting that my husband thought it was a cake. I chilled the cake for 1 hour and decorate.

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

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
