Hunny... its Winnie the Pooh Bear this time. It is such a big challenge to make character cakes since this is not my expertise. This is a gift to my cousins for their baby shower and I just could
not be moody to make it. Yes, I love making my own design because I hate patterns. This cakes has three layers made of Mocha Chiffon Cake with Marshmallow Icing. I also put Chocolate Rose Buds around where pooh is. Marshmallow icing is made of boiled syrup,eggwhites and melted gelatin. I used oil based food colors to make it a little more fun.

I had several attempts of joining Lasang Pinoy way back in 2005, as introduced to me by my cuz-Ces. Nowis the perfect time to share a perfect ender after eating all those LP18 savory posts.
I hope you guys like it!

Finish the cake with a a liitle margarine, not butter to make it real pinoy!Happy Baking...
I almost forgot making other types of baked goodies or pastries! Relatives and friends visit from time to time and I have to be ready anytime. This holder full of Cheese Puffs are totally away from the sweetness and chocolate flavors. Puff Pastry is basically layers of dough and fat, gastronomically speaking and for me,it is * h e a v e n*. Why? This snack folded in with butter and ricotta and mozarella was served straight from the oven, when you bite into it, that crunchy,chewy and soft texture will just remind you how wondrous breads are. They can be anything you want it to be ,for as long as precision and science is applied when making this puffy dough.

I would like to thank my aunt Lulu for giving me this white distorted bowl,seems like from the
70's but hey classic is classic. You guys had too much dose of chocolate hue from recent posts and I just thought having this simple but delightful. Peaches and Cream is an all time favorite. This is just heavy cream,condensed milk and wedges of peach fruit. So good especially when served chilled.
