I Had THAT Day…

BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP!

I’m sorry, why the HELL, was my alarm going off, when I am on holidays? I think I could have cracked my phone, seeing as I was basically bashing the snooze button. At 5:30am in the morning (yes, uni, I give up a LOT for you…)

HALLOWEEN!

We’re all friends. I mean look at us, hanging around, doing whatever, watching the ridiculously scary new Pretty Little Liars episodes on a usual Saturday night.

All good fun, no problems, lots of food and a great night.

That is how hanging out with friends usually is, honestly, don’t get me wrong. But on Halloween, things start to happen. It usually starts with ‘something evil lurking in the dark’, and then when you turn around, ‘you see a sigh that almost stops your heart’

Elvis Meets Oreo at the Bottom of a Black Cupcake

What was so great about Elvis? Was it his oozing charm or his gel oozing quiff? Was it the fact that he could waggle his hips probably better than a lot of girls? Was it his, um, radical dance moves? Was it his voice which was so deep and melodious, it still makes you to want to glide with it?

Yeah, I think the answer is all of the above. He was after all The King. Full stop, no questions asked. But another thing he was famous for, a very well known thing actually (especially amongst us foodies) was his love for a special sandwich.

To be precise (ahem, Thomson without a ‘p’), a very special sandwich.

A sandwich slathered in peanut butter, overflowing with sliced banana and crispy fried bacon before the whole sandwich itself  was fried again in hot butter on a pan or griddle. Sounds a little, um, out there but these days everything is. In those days, nothing was except Elvis and what Elvis did was made law so this sandwich now still bears his name today – nice one 😀

Cupcake Takes Over Pie

Actually Written: Term 3 2011

Yep, this Lemon Meringue Cupcake was a school Food Tech class extraordinaire of an
item – a true love for me (and without chocolate too!) Sweet cupcakes with a
surprise lemon curd filling (store bought but seriously, just use a homemade
version – probably from the lemon meringue pie!). I tweaked the recipe here and
there because well, for one thing, there was a lack of curd – 1/2 cup for 12
cupcakes are you serious? I also added 1 tbs lemon juice to a very lemony muffin since it was very sweet.

Overall, a dam good imitation of a pie without being the
classic pie. Doesn’t make much sense but when you make it, I promise it will.
Oooh, and my awesome teacher brought in her blowtorches – We could have sold
our end results at a cupcake bakery (or even THE cupcake bakery because they
all looked so fabulous! – well, most of them…)

Happy Birthday TT 2011

Actually Written: 24th September 2011

YAY, another birthday baking bash! Ok so, TT, she is one of the closest friends I
could ask for. And since I know her pretty well, I know of her love for Oreos.
Oreo this and that, there is nothing that compares to a good Oreo for her
(except maybe Caramel Cake…)

Anyway, I decided, since there is a cupcake theme going on for my birthday baking
(slightly!) to make her this Oreo cupcakes with a much trusted recipe from much
trusted Annie Eats!
