Weekend Project: Macarons

I thought I would never make any macarons again. They are very delicated sweets and extremely hard to make for sure.

My brother in law's birthday is coming soon. I gave the challenge a go again. Here they are. The basic recipe - Almond Macarons with Dark Chocolate Ganache Filling. What do you think?

Time to dress them into a present.

Standard Almond Macarons (size as shown in the photo) - $1.50 each

Tree Stump Cake

An enchanted forest party theme creates a magical atmosphere for a birthday celebration. While this theme is especially nice for a little girl's birthday party, it can also be modified to use for boys or adults.

This is a smaller cake for a birthday celebration for Paul and I. A tree stump surrounded by flowers and woodland creatures is one simple idea for an enchanted forest party. Five round cakes stacked on top of one another create the main part of the stump.

The flavour of the cake is the "Hershey Dark Chocolate Cake".

We had a wonderful, romantic and relaxing time at the "Secrets on the Lake" in Montville. Secrets treehouses, nestled on the shores of peaceful Lake Baroon in Queensland's Sunshine Coast hinterland, offers you the very best in intimate accommodation.

Finishing off the enchanted party with a themed cake creates a sweet ending to the celebration. Try your hand at creating one of these imaginative forest-themed cakes to make your next birthday occasion unforgettable.

Happy baking!

Hamburger & Chips Cake

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate a milestone birthday, the guest of honour will be touched by your efforts. Enjoy sharing each new decade with the special person in your life.

Paul, my dearest hubby will be turning 35 next Wednesday. As usual, he would get a cake to share with his workmates (from his Baseball Cap, Personalised Rego Plate to Heineken Beer Bottle last year).

My man loves his fast food, such as KFC and McDonald. Some people tend to refer them as fast food or junk food but we all find it really hard to resist. If you too love to have your hamburger and fries, you will surely find this hamburger and fries cake pretty tempting, to say the least.

A lot of time was taken to make this cake (so not the usual fast food at all) and it turned out pretty cool. It’s like having meal and dessert all in one combo.

It is perfect for the birthday parties and other light-hearted occasions. Let’s make the most of your next event by having this hamburger and fries cake a part of it.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy baking~
