A couple of weeks ago I deceded to make an ombre cake for Salome’s birthday.
Here are some pictures:
Today my family and I celebrated my niece’s birthday.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day at school, I decided to make things desserts made with chocolate.
red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chocolate dipped strawberries, and chocolate pretzels and Oreo cookies.
Hope the staff enjoy them!
My friend Kim who recently moved here from Singapore discovered butter mochi near her working place. Butter mochi is a local Hawaii favorite great for potlucks and family get-togethers. The main ingredients are mochiko flour, evaporated milk, coconut milk, and eggs.
This month the staff at KCS will celebrate 4 birthdays so I decided to bake some cupcakes to celebrate. I used a box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix and added Duff’s Vanilla buttercream and edible decorations.
The baking cups are from Island Marketing located in Kalihi.
