Vanilla Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

It has been a while since last time I made cupcakes.
Since I have extra buttercream I decided to make some cupcakes for Jiu's daughter, Miranda upcoming 1st birthday party.
Very simple vanilla cupcakes, the new recipe that I have amended that the cake is not gonna come off from the patty pan yet first and moist :)

The cupcakes is piped with strawberry buttercream in pink colour.

I decorate my cupcakes with some handcrafted strawberries, leaves and flower plus some silver balls.
The the rest is with round number "1" plaque ^^

I am glad that the kids loves the cake especially the buttercream, they just lick off the cream before they eat the cake haha

 Jiu and his wife love the cupcakes as well, I hope they have a great celebration with Miranda^^

Once again, Happy Birthday to Miranda~~~~

First covering a square cake, decorated with handcrafted pink booties.
I know I can make a better pair of booties next time, well nice attempt!
Little baby footprints on the side of the name.
This is a very simple design.

Baked Avocado Prolly Cheesecake with ganache and pistachio nuts

I always wanted to make avocado cheesecake, but lots of idea in my mind and this time I decided to make baked avocado cheesecake with avocado slices inside.
Then a thin layer of ganache on the top plus crushed pistachio nuts on the top.
This is the 1st attempt and I hope everything is good!

My friends Erjan is actually the one that give me this idea, and the cake actually turn out great!
Avocado prolly is a drink with blended avocado with nuts and chocolate.
This cheesecake is much more creamy because of the avocado and you can see the avocado slices when I cut the cake.
Rich of avocado flavour, Australia avocado is very versatile and used in lots of dishes because the taste is not bitter and it is very good for kids and baby.
Australia selling avocado everywhere and you can get it very easily in fruit store or supermarket :)

For this cake, the ganache and the nuts actually give the cake more taste other than avocado and all of them make good combination.

One of my friend Samuel tasted it and he really likes it ^^
