Valentine’s Bake Sale
hey guys ! i know i’m almost two months late to blog this post but forgive me , for i have been so busy T___T
so as you guys may or may not know , Paramount Championship plays a big role in my school . it is an organization to help students unleash their various talents through many competitions , for more info go to paramountchampionship.com :D hahaha anyway , it so happens that the president of PC is my classmate and this year , i was privileged to help them in their Valentine’s sales , aimed to raise funds for their organization .
when my classmate first asked me if they could order cupcakes and macarons from me , i was more than honoured and happy to do it !!! HEHEHE you all know i love baking and to be given an opportunity to take on such a big project , i was thrilled !!
made one batch of heart-shaped macarons with chocolate ganache as a sample a few days before the real day ! first time trying to make heart-shaped macarons and i’m so pleased with the outcome <3
RM100 worth of ingredients o.o !! so i was told to make 40 red velvet cupcakes and 60 macarons … all which i did in one day
work space – all set
i had the fugliest cupcake liners ever … wanted plain white ones but couldn’t find any so this was the closest i could get :(
time for innovation ! i flipped the cupcake liners inside-out so that the patterned part would be inside and the white part would be on the outside , making it look like white cupcake liners . yay :D
red velvet cupcakes x heart-shaped macaron shells … the shells were supposed to be white but turned out beige after baking :(
MOST DELICIOUS RED VELVET CUPCAKES !!! hahaha not being perasan or what but they are really yummy T___T recipe from : http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/red-velvet-cupcake-recipe.htm
letting the macaron shells air for 30 minutes before popping them into the oven . my oven’s not a very big one so i took FOREVER just to bake 120 macaron shells :(
pairing up macaron shells of the same size … consistency is something i have yet to master :p
filled my pink and beige macarons with vanilla buttercream !
look at my whopping amount of shells :(
and done ! :D
now for the cupcakes …
one big tub of cream cheese frosting ready to pipe !
piped them in the style of Georgetown Cupcake , where the recipe originates from ahahah and topped them with a candied heart !
had extra batter and icing so i made these mini babies as well !! too cute T__T
oh i almost forgot ! for Valentine’s Day me and my friends decided to do something like Secret Santa , but since it was Valentine’s , we called it “Secret Cupid” ! hahaha . for those of you who don’t know how Secret Santa goes , click here
so i prepared this for my secret Valentine !
a box of two mini red velvet cupcakes + two macarons :D my secret Valentine was Paggie and sadly she isn’t much of a dessert person but all the same i hope she liked it ! :) and to those who are wondering , my secret cupid was Yee Lyn and she gave me a jar of jelly beans from Wondermilk ! loved playing Secret Cupid with the rest of my girls heheh
all the cupcakes ready to go !!!
brought everything to school the next day in a huge cardboard box + another huge paper bag … Lord knows how i managed :p
