Yay, it’s another week of the Tuesday Tutorials Pintorials Pin Party! This linky will occur every fortnight and the linky will be open until 25th March 2016 so you have plenty of time to link up! This week I am featuring Easter crafts.
We have never been a big fan of brownies because they tend to be too dense for our taste buds but I decided to experiment with it as I am trying different types of bakes each week. My son and I tried out this recipe together. It is from The Secret of Cookies which I bought it from Singapore. I have changed some of the ingredients for ingredients more widely available in the UK.
Along with other bloggers this week, I have decided to make a series of stick crafts from using popsicles to twigs. I have made a game from my childhood which is the pick up sticks game! I used to play that with my friends in school and I thought it would be nice to pass it down to my children too.
A huge welcome to Week 27 of the Tuesday Tutorials Pintorials Pin Party! This week I am featuring three delicious cheesecakes. I have not always been such a big fan of cheesecake and only started to really love them after learning to make them.
Last weekend, I invited a few friends over for a drink and a catch up but unfortunately I was ill. They all turned up but I didn’t get chance to take many photos. I made this super easy cheesecake that does not require baking. All you need to do is mix!
I have used Oreo biscuits for the base and it can get quite sweet. If you prefer less sweet, replace it with digestive biscuits instead. To make the base, I always use these measurements in these proportions: 100g of biscuits mixed with 50g of melted butter. This is what I used for my no bake Chocolate Cheesecake.
As many of you may know, the brand new Minions movie hits cinemas on 26th June 2015! We can’t wait to watch it now! To celebrate, Green Giant is challenging bloggers to create the ultimate Minion-inspired summer snack.
So I created these Minions sweet corn steamed cakes! I can understand that it might sound weird for some people but in fact, in Asian countries, sweet corn is used in many recipes. We even have sweet corn ice cream, sweet corn jelly and not forgetting the popular chicken with sweet corn soup as found in many Chinese takeaways and restaurants.
Most children love cake! But not all children love vegetables! By combining these two together, we made sweet corn cakes! Sweet corn is naturally sweet, healthy and nutritious!
Recently, I was invited by my children’s school to make a short video clip on their Multi Faith school trip. We are hoping to use the brief introduction video to show parents what the trip is about and to educate children who will be going in the near future.
A huge welcome to Week 22 of the Tuesday Tutorials Pintorials Pin Party! Last week, we had a busy half term and hope you also had a great one. We didn’t have much link up last week due to half term and I hope this week you can join us again. Also we will be using InLinkz instead of linky which is so much better to use! This week I am featuring sheep crafts.
My husband and I enjoy eating Thai food but I have yet to learn how to cook it from scratch. Normally, I use ready-made packet sauces. Thai food is famous for its balance of sweet, sour, salty and hot flavours. One of my favourite dishes is Tom Yum soup. It is a clear soup base and very spicy! I love the hit of the spiciness.
Last week, my little girl turned six and you wouldn’t believe that if you saw her in real life. She is as little as a three or four year old. Anyway, I asked her what type of cake she wanted and she requested a Princess Castle cake for her big day. So on her birthday eve, after putting them to bed, I started whisking and baking. It took me nearly 3 hours just to bake alone. I didn’t have enough baking equipment resulting in having to wait until I’d finished with some items so it could be washed and dried before reusing for the next task.
So I made two tiers of Madeira cake and a sponge cake for the top. The reason for the different cake was because I ran out of baking ingredients too! Then I iced it with strawberry flavour icing. For the castle, I dipped the ice cream cones into candy sauce and sprinkled lot of sprinkles onto it. Once dried, I sliced a few into half for the sides of the castle.
Then I made a flag from a cocktail stick and paper. Once everything was in place, I mixed two different icing for piping. The green is for the plant and red icing for the flower.

A huge welcome to Week 21 of the Tuesday Tutorials Pintorials Pin Party! This week sadly Kate from Craft on Sea will not be joining us to host this brilliant linky. So for now, it’s just us three bloggers, that is me, The Boy and Me and Hodge Podge Craft. This week I am featuring painting again.
This coming half term, National Forest Adventure Farm is packed full of activities with Get Wild and Deadly. They have also opened the brand new JCB Big Dig Zone to celebrate the forthcoming JCB Maize Maze open between 11th July to 6th September 2015.
Get Wild and Deadly (open only from 23rd – 31st May) is a show that runs daily at 11am, 1pm and 3pm in their Barn Theatre. It is best to get in early to grab a seat to get a better view. They show a series of some of the planet’s craziest creatures from Burmese pythons to giant bird eating spiders plus lizards, stick insects and chameleons.
Recently, I came across MeinCupcake’s website and was very pleased with their online shopping experience. They have a huge range from baking equipment, baking ingredients to cake making supplies.
I am a very keen baker and like to bake at least once a week. I always find it hard to get all the items from one shop but Cakemart has it all. I love the brands that they stock like Dr. Oetker, Renshaw, Wilton, Kitchen Craft and many more. The website is easy to navigate with clear titles and categories. For each product, it will show you how many items are available online. One quirk I discovered though – some pages have not been translated from German to English as they are a German company with international web pages.
