January 16, 2009 is my sister's wedding day. Of course, I am the one who made their cake. Four-tier chocolate fudge fondant cake with 15 satellites for principal sponsors, and 150 cupcakes served as giveaways.
This is the cupcake tower I made for Don Navarro and Aileen Mesa's wedding on August 8, 2008. Cupcakes: Chocolate fudge cupcake with fondant icing. Decor: fondant roses. Cutting Cake: 6x4 inches round chocolate fudge cake with fondant icing and gumpaste flowers.
This is the cake I made for Karylle Chloe L. Marcelo on her 7th birthday. She had a big SnowWhite cake and 7 satellite cakes, with a dwarf topper each. It was a chocolate fudge cake with marshmallow icing.
Mica and Jordan, and me, too, love chewy cookies. I love to share the recipe of this cookies to all of you, guys, but my copy is being misplaced by my cutie Mica. So sorry that I can't remember the exact measurement for each ingredient. Basically, it has butter, sugar, flour, cashew nuts, chocolate chips and vanilla. I just can't recall the measurements, dear. :(
My brownies are made of finest ingredients and made-to-order only. Bulk orders come during the ber-months since this is one of the common gifts during Christmas season yet always appreciated.
These three variants are my bestsellers. They can be fudgy or cakey, depending on the customer preference. I also make walnut brownies and cream cheese brownies but for special order only and charged at slightly higher price.
