Birthday Puchi Dog

So yesterday, I baked a cake for my friend's dog, Puchi.  I used carob powder instead of cocoa powder because we all know that dogs are highly allergic to chocolate.  

Please excuse the bad picture;  I took this at night so the lighting sucks.

I did try the cake and it turned out well indeed; it was soft, moist, and delicious.  I could tell a slight difference; cocoa powder is earthy, and have a deeper and richer flavour, whereas carob powder is mild, sweet, woody, and a little bit floral. 

Please stop torturing me with pictures! I wants food!
I wouldn't mind using it at all in baking because it is delicious in a Red Velvet Cake. Puchi gave it his stamp of approval! Gave him 3 small slices and wanted some more; we had to stop right there because too much of anything is not good for anyone after all. Hehe.

That would be me serving the birthday boy.
What say you? Have you tried baking with Carob Powder?

100 Days Celebration

This cake was the very first cake I made for my friend, Nancy over at alifedesigned.  This also was the first time I made cakepops! I was so happy because I actually managed to pull it off. I thought for one second that I was going to horribly fail at it. But I didn't so horray for me!  Anyway, Nancy told me that they want a cake that would represent her Korean family's background, and also her brother-in-law's Chinese background. 

Mashimaro (Korean) and Pucca (Chinese)

I asked myself how I could do it without me going over board with symbols.  I did a couple of sketches and went with the second one, since the first one was too busy. 

Birthday Party Decor by Nancy

I tend to favour minimalist cake design because I am a minimalist.  But of course there are times when I do appreciate more; they just need to have the right balance.

What type of design do you favour most?

Until then! Ciao! And I hope you're having a great weekend! xoxo
