Swan Wedding Cake

This delectable chocolate cake is for my 2016 May couple Liana and Jay.  It is covered with vanilla buttercream with a rich chocolate filling.  The fondant covered second tier is embossed with diamond patchwork cutter.  Silver edible beads are placed on the apex of the diamond patterns.  Dainty buttercream scrolls are piped at the front and sides of the remaining tiers.  They are also enhanced with silver edible beads for added sparkle.  Finally turquoise satin ribbons, silver metallic ribbons, and turquoise bows with crystal broaches adorned the bottom of each tier.
Credits to Jay and Liana's photographer...  I added more silver edible beads to hide
the wires at the bottom of the swans.

I love it when couples feed each other.  It's very romantic!

Congratulations to the blissful couple Jay and Liana.

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
