Be Careful With My Ube Heart cake

This is my "Be Careful with my Ube Heart" cake.  It is an Ube with special fluffy buttercream icing.  The celebrant is crazy nuts for "Be Careful with my Heart" pinoy teleserye her Tita Mariza told me.  I thought she wanted me to draw out the characters like Jodi Santamaria and Richard Yap but all Tita wanted is the teleserye's logo.  I think it turned out better than I thought.  I used Wilton tip no. 3 with the purple lettering and Wilton tip no. 5 with the pink lettering.  I made an imprint of logo using piping gel and then I piped out the letterings with buttercream icing.  (See the "how to transfer images on cakes" tutorial bellow)


I wanted the focus on the top of the cake so
I left the icing white.  Decorated the sides with rosettes.  

Ima..  I hope you have fun on your 18th brithday in Vancouver and
I hope you like your very special cake!

How to transfer images to cakes tutorial:

Horizontally flip and resize the desired image.  Print your image in black and white.  Place parchment paper on top of the image.  Load a prepared icing bag with a small amount of pipping gel. Using a number 2 Wilton tip trace out the image using a pipping gel.  Carefully lift and turn over the traced image.  The traced image should be the right orientation and the clean end is facing you.  Place the traced image on the center of the cake.  Carefully press down on the image. Lift the image off the cake. You should see a transparent image on the cake.

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
