If you have been wondering why have I not been updating my blog lately...well I have a really good reason for that. It's my younger daughter's birthday and I have been really busy, planning, baking and decorating the cakes for her. And because of my daily duties, to work with these extra jobs on hand, really requires planning. But I was really glad I managed to pull it off and everything went and as planned. *Phew! Big relief!!* And if you are wondering why is post title names Part I, that's because I made cupcakes for her class celebration and another actual birthday cake for home celebration. Without further ado, here is are the cupcakes!
It's been such a long time since I made fondant cupcakes. The last time I did it was way back last year for my elder child's graduation party in school. :) So making these cupcakes was like a refreshing course for me. ;D Even though it took me two days to complete these, I really enjoyed the whole process. ;) It's almost like getting to play with my old favorite toy again, heehee. :)
I did quite a bit of research before I started working on this. I even sat down and watched an episode of the cartoon with my girl! Lol! I really liked it by the way. ;) If you have not seen Pororo before, check out their website to find out more. ;)
I shan't go into too much detail as to introduce the characters to you. Actually I cannot remember some of their names already. But when I brought the cupcakes in to my girl's class the other day, her classmates were going like "Pororo!! That's Eddy, that's Loopy" etc etc...you get the idea. All the kids were really thrilled getting a cupcake and I was glad they enjoyed eating it too! ;D I used my yogurt vanilla cupcake recipe adapted from the Blueberry Yogurt Muffin recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except for the yogurt, I used plain low fat yogurt instead of blueberry ones. It turned out really nice, not as dense as the usual butter cake. Anyway, hope you enjoyed viewing the pictures.I know I have enjoyed making them very much, lol! Do stay tune for my next post for my girl's birthday cake. :)) Hope I can find sometime to post it up soon though. You all have a good day! Cheers!
