Spices: Devil’s Food Chocolate Cuppies with PB Frosting

29 May

I have not laid hands on my oven for ages. What can I do if what I’ve been up to now is preparing my own food! Photo below proves it!

Looks fun looking at those spices. I feel like I can call myself a CHEF now LOL. So I finally got a bit of time off…

And whipped up something. Delishh….. delish….. NAH!  My mouth could only utter the first two syllables! neutral

are we done yet!?

Here we go! Cupcake itself was ok. I got the moistness I want for my cuppies. But the PB frosting I was aiming for was a F-A-I-L-U-R-E. Omigosh. Why did I even bother to bring some at work?

 butter + peanut and more butter…

Some said it tasted good blah, blah. Maybe because they didn’t know what these cupcakes should be like. Still, most of them gave me a thumb up.

Note, just a thumb

Hearty Day: Cookie Dough Cupcakes with Flour Frosting

18 Feb

I was thinking of making a heart-shaped cake but I wanted something easy and quick so I’d still have a little more Me-time. So this is me baking on a Sunday weekend.

 Thankfully, Valentine’s Day fell on Monday. I hate it when places are so crowded you can hardly stroll around. Besides occasions like this creates some kind of drama and high expectations – fancy dinner, flowers, gifts. In short, STRESS! – well, that’s our BFs to worry about.

preparing cookie dough…

combined the rest of the ingredients to make the dough

fresh from the oven!

ready to frost now!

The cookie dough is so moist. Moist that it came to a point that I overbaked the chocolate cake because I thought the inside is uncooked. But when it’s all done, it made me crave for more. Still, I’ll have to change the chocolate cake recipe to make the texture more like Chocolate Cupcakes. It’s too dry for me – yes, like Sahara-dry.

 

This is not the first time I made these. 

 

  I. Must. Make. These. Again!

Comfort Cuppies: Chocolate Cupcakes with Flour Frosting

11 Feb

“Success is dependent on effort” quoting Sophocles yeah! I did some serious attempts to whip up a decent buttercream but still, crapped out and failed. But enough of the nega vibes as you’ll see that despite the failure I still made them butter better. Improving huh?

Same super moist chocolate cupcakes I made for Chocolate Cookie Dough Cupcakes

 

Yes! Flour frosting is becoming my new favorite.

Lovely even when not frosted.

My piping bag gave up on me. Thus, the mess.

into my caddy…

Me the past weekend: chocoholic yielding to the whims of a true confection. sweeet!
