Red Velvet Cake with Strawberries

15th January 2013

Dear Chibi,

Red Velvet Cake

In today’s episode of Chibi’s Foodie Adventures, Chibi explores the art of baking Red Velvet Cakes :D For those unaware, Red Velvet is basically a chocolate cake with red food colouring. So no, it’s not raspberry or anything like that, hehe XD

I was a little nervous about making this since I’ve never used the mixer before. Thankfully, it was actually quite simple once I read through the manual :)

Dear Chibi,

It’s been a while since Chibi has had her last foodie adventure! I haven’t been very inspired for the last 3 months, but thanks to Christmas being just around the corner, I’ve gone all excited about it again :) Time to cook up something for the festive season! :D In this episode, we’re gonna have a look at how Chibi tackled these super cute ‘Butternut Snap Rudolph Chocolate Tartlets’~

Brownies

5th August 2012

Dear Chibi,

In this week’s episode, I tried to make Chocolate Brownies following this recipe! The method and ingredients is similar to Rocky Road except it’s baked in the oven like my Muffins! Again, I decided to bake two batches, one on Saturday (for guinea pig testing) and hopefully a better one on Sunday.

Here’s my end result:

Mmm…juicy and gooey ~ Served with Cookies & Cream ice-cream :D

Muffins Galore

29th July 2012

Dear Chibi,

This weekend I decided to try baking muffins! It proved to be more challenging than I thought. I made a batch of 12 on Saturday which turned out pretty disappointing. The muffins were burnt on the bottom and all around the edges. The shape was also pretty weird. About half of it end up going to waste. After evaluating what could have possibly gone wrong (there were several factors) I was determined to make a better batch the next day.

This morning I headed back to Woolies to find some muffin paper cups. On Thursday night I had bought the wrongs ones (they were for cupcakes), so I thought I could just do without the paper. Oh how wrong I was~ XD

This is the end result of my Macadamia, white chocolate and raspberry muffins!

mmmmm! I’m really happy with how these came out today :D After the second batch, I had a few more left over for a third batch. The third batch was the best :D
