Today is our second last lesson ... :-( I think I will miss my new found friends and also the lessons we had. Sigh.
Oh well... more chocolate today. Also lots of work involved making the chocolate mousse. Don't think I would want to make that again .. anyway, mousse is not my favourite !

Today is my brother's birthday and it is also the birthday of another very special person. I baked and decorated these mini cupcakes for her today ! Here's wishing her good health and hope she likes these mini cupcakes !
A couple who my aunt knows were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary and they were having a dinner to celebrate the event tonight. I was asked to bake 100 cupcakes for the occasion ! After 8 hours of baking, icing and decorating ... here they are !
They are butter cupcakes and were decorated with buttercream icing. I used white for the base and then topped them with purple and white flowers with a little silver ball at the centre of each flower.

Today is our final class in Pastries and Cookies. For that we'll have another 'relaxing' day and just bake cookies !
There was one recipe which required us to refrigerate the cookie though before we cut it up for baking ! That was the Chocolate Almond Cookie (Fridge Box Cookie)
The dough is put onto a layer of plastic sheet and then into a rectangular shaped tray before being refrigerated.
It is then sliced into this size and baked.
The other 3 types of cookies were : Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies, Chocolate Biscuit and Viennese Cookie. The Viennese Cookie was not spared from being 'chocolated' too 'coz we laced it with chocolate sauce after it was baked.
