Princess and The Golden Comb

Made an illustration for some kids magz. I don't know the exact title for this story. It's about a guy named Juanito who saw a beautiful lady on the bottom of a well. The lady supposed to be a princess but she was cursed by the evil witch. This Juanito manage to break the curse and rescued the princess with a little help from a dog, an eagle, and an ant.
Does anybody know about this mexican folktales?

Garden Party

Last weekend my niece from Surabaya came. She and her big bro was having an appointment with their eye doctor. It was a very very short trip for them but I made a promise to bake her strawberry cupcakes for her next trip to Jakarta. I never make any strawberry cupcakes before. So, I Google and found some random recipe and made little adjustment.
So there I was. 7AM in the morning with table full of ingredients. Mixed, swift, fold, bake. My cousin-in-law told me she should be coming around 12 at noon for lunch. But suddenly she had to canceled it because her son was having fever. They will be leaving the hospital at 10AM. I looked at the clock and it was 9AM. I should be able to catch them. The hospital wasn't that far from home. Luckily the cupcakes already set, only need a little decoration. Strawberry jam, cookie crumble, cute fondant and chop chop chop it's harvest time!!!

Hahahaha I was inspired from Hello, Cupcake!
And I choose those theme because my cousin love to play Farmville.

Hi there people :)

I don't know how to start this blog so maybe I just tell you a little bit about myself. I like to watch movies, reading, and drawing, sometimes baking, others doing some art and craft project but not writing hahaha... My writing skill's very poor so please forgive me for the grammars and oh so little vocabulary and maybe if I lost you in my blabbering ;p

Couple of weeks ago, my childhood friend from Perth came and I though it was a good time to try my new buttermilk and green tea powder which I purchased from some Food Festival. Time to bake mini cupcakes :D
I love mini cupcakes! They're so tiny. You can put them in your mount in just 1 bite. Munch munch munch and the next thing you know, you already finished 4 of it hahaha...

Turned out that the buttermilk powder make a flat surface. It didn't give the dough more power to rise than the green tea powder *sigh* but the smell sure build up the appetite hihihi...
A little whipped cream, color sprinkles and voila!

And here's for fun :D

I ran out of whipped cream for the big cupcakes hahaha...
