Today marks the final birthday celebration in the month of November! Ahakz. Coincidentally, it also falls on the day of my first paper, and since the exam’s in the morn, I had time to whip up some lil things in time for the celebration.
I already had cupcakes in mind, but since the dad subtly hinted for a revised version of the peach cobbler I did the other day [it was faaaar too sweet even for my liking], I decided to work on something along those lines. And so I ended up with apple crisps.
So here’s the recipe:
Verdict: A simple recipe to follow. Absolutely loved the cinnamon smell that permeated throughout the kitchen. AND it wasn’t too sweet! But the next time round, I must remember to make a smaller portion… Hehe.
The cupcakes plan still went through, with me vowing to refrain from chocolate ones, since the birthday girl isn’t much of a chocaholic. Bearing in mind that her fave colour is pink, I whipped up plain cupcakes with strawberry frosting. As you can see from the photos below, I bended the chocolate rule, and ended up placing mini M&Ms.
Verdict: The sweetness of the chocolate went well with the sourness of the strawberry frosting, without overpowering it. Definitely a keeper.
