Happy Clown Birthday Cake

26th July – Today is my little nephew’s birthday! Time really flies…the cheeky little boy is turning 5 this year!

To celebrate his birthday, we had a little party at his home on last Saturday. My mom cooked up a feast for up to nearly 20 young and old family members while I am responsible for a customized birthday cake.

I came out with a cheerful clown as the theme for the cake that goes together with little cuppies on a two-tiered cake stand. As for the cake flavor, I improvised a little from my new  found favorite recipe…Rose flavored cake, then filled with Lychee and Longan.

As soon as the birthday boy blew the candle, the little clowns and decorations on top of the cake were all grabbed away by the fascinated kids. Some of the clowns body parts even end up in their mouth! 

Well, at least I know they love the cakes (sugars) *grin*

Happy Birthday my sweet little nephew…

Lychee Rose Cupcakes

I love this recipe to bits…simply because of the rose flavored cake and the ‘surprise’ within.

My whole house was filled with wonderful aroma from rose essence even when the cake has just pushed into oven. As I watched the cake slowly rising and turned slightly brown, I knew the cupcakes would turn out great! Then the ‘surprise’ inside is a whole lychee in canned with chunks of almonds.

I just can’t wait to sink my teeth into one!

Simply classic and elegant...and most importantly, it taste superbly yummy!
