Year End Party

Its almost year end and tomorrow will be the last day of school. As usual, the school will be having a party celebrating the last term break. Time really flies....the older i get, i found the time passes faster. X'mas is near and we are talking about Chinese New Year too..haha! Already started planning for cookies and cakes...wow!

Alright enough for those planning stuffs...;p Back to today's post, it was about the party my girl going to celebrate in school tomorrrow. Therefore, parents have to provide some finger food for the kids. Me?? What else.....CAKES! Thought that will be the easiest of all...:)




Almost the same recipe as before but with some changes of decorations. Using some jelly icing and melted chocolate for topping this time. Thought its was easy, but i took a few hours to finish the piping....*sigh* Luckily those cupcakes still look "okay"...:)



For the chocolate topping, its alittle different from my previous posts. Here's the recipe for you...

Ingredients (Chocolate topping)
100g Dark Chocolate
1 tbsp Butter
1/3 cup Cream , thickened
1/2 cup icing sugar
1.5 cups Butter

Method:
~ Combined the chocolate and 1 tbsp of butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
~ As the mixture begins to melt, add cream clowly and reduce heat to low. Stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and cool.
~ Combine 1.5 cups butter with icing sugar, beat until light and fluffy.
~ Add melted chocolate mixture and mix well.
~ Spoon onto the cupcakes and let the topping dry slowly.



Its really difficult for me to pipe those bears here, with my shaking hands. Will get more practice...:) As you can see the cakes were covered with a layer of white buttercream before piping the jelly icing on them.



Flowers, smilling faces, ...etc etc.....can't think of anything else due to my aching back...haha!
Hope the kids will like it..;) And hopefully they can give me some ideas for my next project too...:)
Good-day!
