Trevi Fountain Cake

Back in August 2018 my cousin Elaine and her husband Wes got married.. It was an amazing wedding! I am honoured to be one of the two matron of honours for my cousin Elaine.
NAILED IT!!! After months of designing, planning remaking the figurines and approximately 60 hours of sculpting, baking, and decorating time. The cake is here at @jobchoa and @elainevill 's wedding reception. My version of Trevi Fountain cake.   Why the Trevi Fountain you ask?  Its because it is where they got engaged!





The cake is not very big.  It was a 2 layer 12" cake.  I trimmed the front to create steps.  I also made cupcakes enough for 200 people.

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.
