Holiday after holiday...party after party...celebration after celebration, I have been busy playing with pots and pans in my kitchen non-stop since October!! Seriously, I start to run out of my "excitement" in the kitchen.
However, there was this one very special celebration I dedicated my heart and soul to, it was my little one's 4th birthday (already!!).
Four years of countless life lessons, mistakes, new discoveries, excitement, love, tears, memories, laughters, blessings and everyhting one can ever imagine. It is the life I have never dreamt of but I never ever want it to be any other way.
I always like the idea of keeping birthday celebration simple and intimate between close family members, and make homemade food while enjoying the comfort of our own home. It is a great way to bring everyone together, plus save tons of money.
In the past three years, I bought cake from our favorite bakery but this year I challenged myself to homemade cupcakes. While surfing the web, I found two different recipes, vanilla and chocolate with two diffent frostings, and decided to make both (but we all agreed that vanilla cupcakes tasted better). I have yet to master the art of making cupcakes as they turned out to be too dense and heavy in contrast to light and fluffy texture. Maybe one day but for now I almost achieved the art of cupcake decoration (I guess).
