Cake Pops for Christmas

I was undecided what to giveaway to my colleagues this Christmas.... and then Elyn suggested that I make cake pops. She did a wonderful job with hers. After doing some baking supplies shopping together and passing on some tips to me, I went ahead with mine. I was apprehensive at first about making cake pops as my previous experience was a long time back and it did not stay on well in room temperature. Elyn was very reassuring and that made me decide to try.

I'm glad I did! and mini-me had good fun helping me in the kitchen. It was good bonding time. :)
Here's wishing everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy 2013!

Sour Cream Cuppies

Guilty of impulsive buying, this time, it's a tub of sour cream....

Well, I did a banana bread and still left with alot of sour cream. So, upon some googling, spotted a sour cream cupcakes recipe.

Here's how the cupcakes turn out. It's very moist! However, the original recipes called for 200gm of sugar, which I think will be too much, so I reduced 20gms. Also added almond essence to make it more flavourful.

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy 2013!
