Hotdog Buns/Rolls

Made these delicious hotdog rolls again but this time I used another recipe. Before, I used a recipe that requires bread flour but now I used all purpose flour. These are much bigger than the previous one I baked. I was a little full halfway of eating the roll.

You can make these for breakfast but you have to be up very early in the morning because you know how bread works right? I made these around 9AM and I finished baking around 12NN. Too late for breakfast but just right for our merienda or afternoon snack.

You can follow the recipe here- Chinese Hotdog Buns/Rolls. That's a recipe that's so easy to follow so don't be intimidated by it coz I know you can do it!

Chocolate Pound Cake (A Birthday Cake for my Nanay)

Made this super delicious chocolate cake(Please click HERE for the recipe) last Saturday for my mother's 66th birthday celebration. I originally planned to use ganache frosting to top the cake with, but unfortunately like as always my problem is, there's no heavy cream available on the supermarkets I went to. There's no available at Puregold and Savemore. I planned on going to SM Supermarket but I due to heavy traffic last Friday, I postponed my travel to SM. Instead, I just used Frosty Boy for the frosting of the cake and colored it yellow. I also added edible flowers which I bought, to add beauty to the cake since mine is just  a simple one.

The cake itself was not too sweet, very moist and buttery. The kids loved the cake! I just wished I was able to make ganache for the cake... it could have been more delicious :(

Chocolate Cupcakes with Two-Color Frosting

Made these cupcakes for a kiddie birthday last Monday. First time to successfully pipe two-tone(blue & white) frosting on cupcakes. the first time I did this, it was an epic failure! I searched for the technique in youtube and found out that you have to use a total of three piping bags in all. Two medium sized bags for the 2 different frostings and one larger to insert the smaller piping bags. Just searched for it on youtube, it was so easy to follow. I know you can do this.

The recipe for the cupcakes is the one I always use. Just search here on my blog, you will easily find it. It's the one by tease-spoonofsugar. :)
