hello kitty cuppies

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

last week we celebrated little Maryam's birthday at Mak Tok's house. We had nasi dagang, lasagna, chocolate brownie made by wanie, che na made her famous trifle which like always gone in a blink...and I made some cute little cuppies...hello kitty cuppies.

i didn't plan on making the cuppies, its just that i couldn't sleep so i just move my ass down to the kitchen and start baking and molding ^_^ and i finally slept at around 3am. It was worth it especially seeing those people faces when they see the cute little cuppies. the cupcake was not perfect as i didn't have edible pen to draw the whiskers and eyes so i improvise and use the good old bamboo stick and food coloring (you can see the smudge...)

in all honesty...this is my firs time using marzipan to make cake toppers so don't ask me for the recipe i practically search the net to find the simplest recipe and guest what i forgot to book mark it so i can't link it or give the recipe but i suppose if you were to search you'll find it. and as for the little cakes it was a tad to sweet for me...i didn't use the normal castor sugar we'd use for baking instead i replace it with mmmm~ i for got whats it called i think it starts with Mor...mor something. i didn't know that its very sweet. the cake turned out very sweet even when I've already halved the sugar from the original recipe. non the less the sugar made the cake a very aromatic and tasted somewhat like caramel...(maybe that's why it tasted so sweet?)
