    Two More Cupcakes: Red Velvet and Calamansi Cupcakes :)

    Hey guys! Just a heads up, this is not the end of my two-cupcake-flavors-per-batch series 😛 More cupcake flavors are incoming and I just have to beg you to bear with me. I’ve never been this HAPPY about my cupcakes before. And recently, I’ve been getting requests to actually open my kitchen to the public and accept cupcake orders (well, cupcakes and roast pork and my whole chicken dishes :P). I am contemplating about that and I’m in the process of testing and developing different cupcake flavors. However, everything at the moment is tentative. This plan may or may not come into fruition soon but I’d just like to let…

    It Takes Two To Make A Thing Go Right: Same Batter, Two Cupcakes ~ Chocolate and Ube

    So, I got this recipe for a chiffon cake from my weekend basic cake and cake decoration class and I used that to make cupcakes. I was hoping I could make a real cake today with icing and all the works but my plan didn’t push through. There’s always a next time for that though.

I had second thoughts at first because I have been following recipes from blogs and I never had a very successful experience yet to date (that means, I still need to adjust some stuff to arrive at the outcome I want). But… when I tried this recipe and the cupcakes came out, man, they’re really moist and delicious! I’m so stoked to share this recipe with…

    Champagne Cupcakes with Choco-Dipped Strawberries

    They look so rugged. So messy. But the more I look at them, the more they grow pretty to my eyes. My personal mantra is:  LOVE YOUR OWN 🙂 Just so you know… Seriously, I will have a re-match with the styling part of the cupcakes. Promise. I got the original recipe from Annie’s Eats. Lovely, lovely site. There are really lots of wonderful recipes there. You can actually compare our photos. The normal scheme of things would be that if you compare “before” and “after” photos, the “after” should be a huge improvement of the “before.” Unfortunately here, that’s not the case. My “after” looks terribad compared to Annie’s…
