Last week, i had a fun baking session with Sunnie at my place. We went out and had our lunch before starting the baking session.
At first, we didn't have any idea about what we were going to make. We had the idea of almond cupcakes but realised that we had no almond. We also had the idea of pistachio cupcakes (sound yum huh?) but also realised that i had NO pistachio!! Instantly we felt really stupid for not checking the pantry before heading to lunch before. All we had at home was chocolate, oranges, lemons and bananas. Finally, after all the thinking and deciding, orange won our hearts.
hmmmmmmmmmm......ORANGE CUPCAKES :)
We use orange peel in the cupcakes and it tasted really really good and fruity. It was a good decision after all.
Done with cupcakes, now with decorations. Again, we had no idea what to decorations to settle with so we both made things that we felt like. First was the butterflies, then Sunnie went on to beach theme, space theme and lastly roses. (See what i said about random?)
I know i know, orange cupcakes didn't exactly go with the butterflies, roses, beach and etc but that was like our "no plan" session. Should have made something fruity as the deco but oh well!
We didn't finish decorating until like 9 at night and continued after dinner till like about 2am. Crazy huh? Started at 2pm and ended at 12am. Almost 10 hours of serious baking and decorating! (excluding dinner)
Overall, i enjoyed it cause we took our own sweet time with Sunnie's ipod music in the background and Chico lazing just beside me. It was a lazy Sunday with a little productivity in it :P
ps: Here are the ones that i made. Sunnie took hers home so i didn't manage to snap some pictures of it. But believe me, when i said we had a random creation day
