Beary Cute Cheese Cupcakes

Baked the 3-ingredient soufflé cheesecake on Tuesday and the kids loved it.. Then baked a pandan chiffon cake on Thursday.. Today, we cleared the cheesecake and the kids requested for more..
Chanced upon a video I saved on FB a few days ago and decided to bake these for the kids..  

Very easy to make. You only need these:

  • 6 Oreo cookies to line the cupcake holders
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 65g of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence

Cream the cream cheese with sugar then add egg and vanilla essence. Mix well and scoop into the cupcake holders (lined with an Oreo cookie each). Use mini Oreo cookies or Ritz bitz and chocolate chips to decorate the cupcakes accordingly.. Then bake in a preheated oven at 150 degrees Celsius for 20 min. Leave to cool to room temperature and chill in fridge for at least 4h.

Voila! Breakfast for tomorrow is ready! 😉


Best siblings!

My siblings really dote on the kids.. After the simple birthday celebration at Audry’s place last Saturday, we met up at Vivo for dinner..

We thought we were just having dinner but after our dinner at Ichiban Boshi, Emily treated the kids to some cupcakes!


Sweet treats!

After that, the kids were brought to Toys’ R Us to choose some gifts! Although Jovan was the birthday boy, Jocelle was also allowed to choose a gift for herself!

In the end, each of them decided on 2 gifts each!


Siblings-best gifts from my parents!

After that, we even went to Honeymoon Dessert to have some desserts!



It was a great night! Really should do this more often and treasure our times together!

Christmas Cupcake Workshop

Went to help out Soot Mei who’s conducting Christmas cupcake making workshops today.. There were 8 children, including Jovan, who participated in the morning workshop.. The kids worked in pairs to measure out the ingredients, mixed up the ingredients using an electric whisk before transferring the cake mixture into aluminium cups.. Then the cupcakes were ready to be sent to the oven!

This workshop is unique in the sense that the kids worked on their own without much help from their parents as parents were not allowed to stay and help.. Some of the kids actually cracked the first egg in their lives in this workshop!

While the cupcakes were baking, Soot Mei went on to the language part of the workshop.. She guided the children to write a letter to Santa to request for a gift and to give a reason for their request.. The kids then wrote their own letter individually and were free to decorate their letters to Santa while Soot Mei checked if the cupcakes were ready..

Once the cupcakes had cooled down and the kids had completed their language activity task, they were guided on the various ways to decorate their cupcakes..

After that, they were given free rein to decorate their own cupcakes.. Each baked 4 cupcakes so they could unleash their creativity with the variety of toppings provided.. Soot Mei really invested a lot of time and money to provide the variety of frostings and toppings for the cupcakes!

And since parents were not allowed to help, the kids were really proud of the cupcakes that they decorated on their own! The kids were very creative too and I could tell that they really enjoyed themselves as all of them were asking Soot Mei when she would conduct the next workshop!

Jovan decorated 2 of his cupcakes with blue frosting and said one was for him and the other was for daddy.. The green one was for me and the pink one was for Mei Mei.. So sweet of him!

The following pictures also showed how much Jovan enjoyed the workshop!












Milo Tiramisu for breakfast!

Made a milo tiramisu yesterday and had it for breakfast today.. The kids loved it and asked for second helpings.. Substituted coffee with milo although there’s some kahlua or coffee liquor in the cheese.. Hee.. Not too sweet this time! 🙂
