    Wow... can we have the recipe please?? How did it taste??

    its definitely for someone who really enjoys sweets and is a chocolate fanatic b/c the cake is very rich, dense, and chocolatey. someone who doesnt enjoy chocolate might find it to be overwhelming.

    the cake

    * 1 (18.25 ounce) package dark chocolate cake mix
    * 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
    * 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
    * 3 eggs
    * 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    * 1/2 cup coffee flavored liqueur
    * 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
    2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, oil and coffee liqueur. Beat until ingredients are well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Spoon into prepared pan.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until cake springs back when lightly tapped. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out and cool completely on wire rack.
    NOTE: to make it alcohol-free you can substitute chocolate milk or strongly brewed coffee for the liqueur.

    the glaze

    * 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    * 3 tablespoons butter
    * 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
    * 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla.
    2. Spread warm glaze over top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.
    NOTE: you dont need a double boiler at all, just microwave 30seconds then stir and repeat as needed.

    applewood smoked (uncured) bacon, fresh GARLIC stems, and red bell peppers - the bacon is a decent substitute for Hunan-style "la ruo."

    They were curved when i bought them, most garlic stems are like that...these weren't as tender as what you would find in China, so I steamed them for 2-3 mins before stir frying in the wok.

    I baked cookies for one of my BFFs birthday tomorrow...

    The original plan was to write HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIV!
    Then I realised I could use 19 cookies (19th birthday, go figure o_ov)

    So on the tray it says HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIV _ 19th (NB the underscore represents an exclamation mark turned mess)
    Hopefully he likes them ._.

    Recipe for MeiNing image

    Very, very, very easy recipe... I don't think these are sugar cookies o_o. I got the recipe off the back of a pack of choc chips image...

    100g butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    vanilla extract (I usually just put in a dash... it wasn't in the original recipe, but why not image )
    1.5 cups self-raising flour
    Choc chips or whatever you want to add o_ov

    Cream the butter and sugar.
    Add the egg & vanilla. (I like to mix the egg and vanilla first)
    Mix in the flour.
    Add choc chips or whatever you'd like here image
    Then you can dollop teaspoon/tablespoon fulls onto a tray, and bake at 160 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes.
    (I like teaspoons just because they're a nice size image)

    Easiest recipe ever that I will use forever. image

    ^^I absolutely love fondant! I've been getting addicted to cake making and the jewel molds lately haha. Uhm Well it depends if you want to make the TRADITIONAL FONDANT* No flavor at all, or the MARSHMELLOW fondant *Tastes good*.


    1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin
    1/4 cup cold water
    1/2 cup glucose syrup
    1 tablespoon glycerin
    2 tablespoons shortening
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    8 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

    Combine gelatin and cold water; let stand until thick. Place gelatin mixture in top of double boiler and heat until dissolved.
    Add glucose and glycerin, mix well. Stir in shortening and just before completely melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Mixture should cool until lukewarm.
    Place 4 cups confectioners' sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and using a wooden spoon, stir in the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Mix in sugar and add more a little at a time, until stickiness disappears. Knead in remaining sugar. Knead until the fondant is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands. If fondant is too soft, add more sugar; if too stiff, add water (a drop at a time). Use fondant immediately or store in airtight container in fridge. When ready to use, bring to room temperature and knead again until soft.

    Marshmallow fondant: <- Very good recipe w/ pictures too.
