Frozen DIY Snow

Since I got some request about the DIY snow I’ve wrote about on my Frozen Birthday Party post, I did a short video of it.

Move over Minions, there’s Frozen fever in the Philippines.  It’s every little girl’s new obsession and perhaps everyones favorite cartoon.  The video above shows the Frozen Palace cake I made.  It didn’t really turned out as nice as I had hoped it would.  I really wanted it to have icy stairs instead of the blue door.   Tried a…

Buttery Dinner Rolls shaped into Pups

Buttery Dinner Rolls shaped into Pups

artistic milestones

These precious little things are what I call Buttery Little Pups.  I made them last Sunday for the Easter Egg hunt.  The taste is quite similar to dinner rolls but a little more sweet and buttery.   We had them with Anchor cream spread, yum! The recipe is easy to follow perhaps even for beginners but shaping it into pups is more challenging for unexperienced bakers.  If you’re unexperienced,…

Easter Egg Hunting and Animal Food Arts

This year’s Holy Week hubby and I just wanted to stay at home and relax.  I’m tired, hubby just got back from a business trip and lil’ Celeste has a bad cough. If you know me, you’ll know that whenever I’m at home relaxing, my mind automatically thinks of something to do in the kitchen.  So here are some few nice things I had whipped up.

Pancake Snake for breakfast – This is really easy to make,…

Sleeping Beauty __ Fauna’s Failed Cake

Disney’s Maleficent will be showing this coming May and I’m definitely counting down. It’s about time someone creates a non-animated version of Sleeping Beauty.  Maleficent is going to be Angelina Jolie! and she looks stunningly wicked in her costume.

The animated cartoon was good and I’m hoping Disney’s Maleficent will be so much more interesting.  My favorite part in Sleeping Beauty was when…

La mesa eco park

Spent our Sunday at La Mesa Ecopark.  I was really impressed with how very well maintained this park is considering the very cheap entrance fee — Php50 per person ( about $1.5 ).  There were many people when we went there yesterday but not at all crowded because the place is huge and full of shady trees so going there even on a very sunny day is still perfect.

The place is very peaceful, clean…

Oven from recycled box

Oven from recycled box

artistic milestones / Homemade oven / DIY oven

So I realize that kids are born spoiled brats.  The bigger they get the more they want expensive toys, whats worst is that they lose interest in them very quickly.  My usual monthly budget for my kid’s toys is gone POOF! after just one date to the toy store.  And it’s barely the end of the month.  No more budget = no more new toys = whiny manipulative toddler.

” I want to buy oven please! I want…

Been doing food art  or food arrangements for my kid every now and then or whenever I find some time on weekends.  I just love seeing her face lit up every time she sees her meal.  These are just very simple foods and food arrangements that you can very easily do at home.
