chocolate cupcakes for physics

i made these for my last ever physics lesson in my life – i’m not going to be taking it for IB, so yeah. the recipe was the same one i used last time for birthday cupcakes, the previous post is here. (this recipe is officialy foolproof for me :D)

this time i made them into minis, as it would be quite impossible for me to lug 25 standard sized cupcakes to school along with my books without half of them being squashed. i didn’t have much time to do the frosting, so i just topped each with an m’n’m and iced ‘Mr’ and ‘L’ onto two (my physics’ teacher’s name)

even though you’ll never read this: thankyou mr L for being a great teacher and for making physics easier to understand! i’m going to miss your lessons! (not so much of the actual physics though :P)

stitch butter cookies

i’m extremly held up with work now…as my GCSEs are actually here. i just had my english literature exam yesterday…which was not good at all. anyways, the following posts will just be updating what i’ve been up to during the last month or so 🙂

———————-

first up are stitch shaped butter cookies! i bought these cutters immediately as i saw them on the shelf in a baking store. these are quite easy to make, and are really tasty too! (similar to kjeldsens cookies)

world peace cookies

these are like almost the best cookies ever. really easy to whip up, you can freeze the dough and bake cookies whenever you want, and most of all, they’re really chocolatey 😛

if only these cookies can really create world peace…

recipe from smitten kitchen (i simply love this site – brilliant photos, and deb’s flair with words)
this is the first recipe after months of stalking the smitten kitchen. almost half of my favs on delicous are recipes from there, but i never got round to trying out some… 😦

oreo cheesecake again

this oreo cheesecake was made for yanyan, my sunday school teacher that will be leaving us. i wasn’t there for the farewell party cause i had a running race (don’t ask :S), so i didn’t get to taste the cake.

the orginal recipe only has two layers-vanilla and oreo, but to make a bigger cake i adapted the recipe and added a third chocolate cheese layer and a chocolate ganache glaze to make the cake look neater.

the lettering was done with some leftover white chocolate ganache from sandwich cookies i did earlier. and do the letters look like they’re piped from a tube of mayonnaise? i think they do :P! my piping skills are bad, so i can only do big, bold letters 😦 the fish at the bottom was orignally a failed smiley face hahah.

but i like the border of silver dragees and red sugar hearts 🙂

mango cheesecake

made this to use up some of the mangoes mum bought. they were really sweet after letting them ripe for a few days 🙂 this was really easy to whip up, and it was yummy too. only thing is that i think that there wasn’t enough mango flavour in the filling, but i already used the 3 mangoes i had left on hand – one for the cheese filling, one diced and mixed into the cheese and one for the jelly topping.

i planned to use mango jelly for the topping, but parknshop ran out of mango flavoured jelly powder! argh, so i had to use orange instead, which resulted in this overly-bright colour that sort of hid the mango slices on top. :S an important note is that you must add the jelly in two batches, as the mango slices are likely to float around, and the first layer of jelly helps ‘stick’ them down.
