Hi everyone (: Aya here! I just wanted to make a quick post about a recent baking session I had on friday.
So, why did I decide to bake when I don’t even have school? Someones birthday? Nope. An anniversary? Nope. Celebration? Ahh, yes (:
Another advice I was given to get ready for university was to do the things I’ve always wanted to do before and one of them was to spell out a message for someone using cupcakes (: Who did I bake for? Of course, for my one and only Yuka! She finished all her tests on friday so I decided to bake and sneak in to her house with her mums help to set it up in the kitchen (: I took some photos of my process so here it goes!
I started off by mixing one pack of some simple cake mix and then separated the mix into three small bowls inorder to make different flavours. I kept one plain but for the other two I mixed white cocoa powder in to one and chocolate and almond into the other. Some thing I kept in mind was to mix in the chocolate right before I put the mix in to separate cups since it melts very easily.
After that I placed them in lines to make sure I have enough and just used a thin tip for the pink icing to spell out the letters! Cutting off the icing was a little hard…but I managed! For the heart, I used small decoration sugar pieces (:
I had an idea to place the cupcakes, but there wasn’t enough space…but since it was pretty cute, I’ll share! What I did here was that I got a huge round plate and placed cute paper napkins in a criss cross pattern and places the cupcakes on top (:
I think it’s cuter when you choose bright coloured or patterned paper napkins to contrast your cupcakes!
I hope you all liked my simple surprise. Really, surprises are worth doing once in a while. The process and the outcome are both fun! I loved Yuka’s reaction (:
Lots of love,
