Christmas Velvet cupcakes (圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕)

Today is Christmas Eve. Have you plan anything for tonight?? My family and I, we are attending the Christmas Eve mass in the Cathedral. I love the Christmas Eve mass as you can hear the lovely voices from the choir group singing the Christmas Hymns and Carols. Forever Friends is sending a gift to you!!!  可爱的小熊圣诞红丝绒杯子蛋糕祝你圣诞快乐!!  Velvet cupcakes without the FF topper, just cream cheese rosette frosting! With Santa FF bear topper. Which one do you like? The rosette frosting or the FF bear topper? :D This velvet cupcake is moist and dense. It pair very well with the cream cheese frosting.

Forever Friend Birthday Cake (Forever Friends熊熊生日蛋糕)

Forever Friends bears are so adorable! Don't you think so?? They can be seen on any greeting cards, as plush toy, as computer wall paper, as calender cover, almost anywhere you want them to be.  I have never thought that I would make them with fondant until a friend request me to help her to make a birthday cake for her hubby. She send me a picture of what she want. A heart shaped sponge cake with 1 bear topper. Then I tell her that 1 bear seems like too lonely. Let make 2 bears together. She wants a really adorable, cute and sweet bear. Hmmm...  I made the first bear and send her a picture. She then asked me 'Only one??' Then i send the the following picture.. below I made her this pair of Forever Friends - couple. She replied 'O i love it!' Then she asked me again 'Where is the cake??' Then i send her another picture ...    This is the whole cake with the FF on top of the heart shaped snow cheesecake. Personally i feel its lik

Chopped apple salad with Toasted Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Pomegranate vinaigrette (苹果核桃沙拉配石榴油醋)

Christmas is on the way!! Have you start baking for Christmas?? This is the most excited month of the year... Christmas is here... My kids are busy in Sunday school. They are preparing some performance in the coming Christmas celebration in our church.  Shawn is going to perform a song and a dance together with his Sunday school friends. Today i am going to share a simple and light salad. This is another Bobby Flay's recipe. This is a good starter for a Christmas dinner. There is chopped apple, toasted walnut, some greens, with a light and sweet pomegranate vinaigrette.  Some crumble blue cheese is added too.   "If you aren't a fan of blue cheese," Flay says, "try substituting feta or goat cheese in the salad. Both pair really well with apples and pomegranates."  简单的开胃沙拉.. 石榴油醋是法式淋汁. 配上苹果,核桃,绿沙拉菜和山羊乳酪还挺搭配的. Crispy and juicy apples. Recipe call for baby spinach and endive which i don't have, i used romaine lettuce instead.
