Dear Pastry: Six Days before Christmas

(Today is December 19th 2012)

Woah~~ six more days and it’s Christmas~ I’m so happy:) I just really love Christmas and other holidays or special days:) It’s not because of my religion, I just really like to enjoy those time of the year. And today I brought truffles. I think it was about two years ago, our church did a gift exchange with another and I got a bag of truffles. That day I fell in love with these. That day was the day I first tried my truffles and when I got one out, my mouth were watering. And when I put one in my mouth, it was a bit bitter from the powder but then it started to melt inside my mouth and it was really really good. I just loved it so I gave some to my friends to try it since some of them didn’t know what it was. They also thought it was delicious and we kept eating them until we realized that there were no more. ūüôā This truffle brought me one of my good memories from past and after that I totally forgot about it.

Then I was surfing on internet to find more pastry and other baking recipes, I came across this recipe and I wondered where I saw this and that brought my memory back. So I kept searching for a easy and simple recipe of something I could do since I’m a beginner. I still can remember that flavor of the chocolate and bitter cocoa powder that covered the¬†chocolates, the smooth, silky texture which swirled around my tongue and the buttery flavor as it melted. With that memory of truffles, I hope that it has similar flavors as that day.

And I hope with this truffle that you can also have good memories about it. Like I said in my other posts, food is food but they have deeper meaning to it and is part of your memories and it brings joy by having that memory back in your heart and mind. For me I don’t really enjoy eating food but this is just fun. Having a good time with one another. Sharing your joy with them. With these Truffles. No one knows what these sweets could mean to you~

Dear Pastry: Nine Days before Christmas

Picture of Chocolate Cake Roll Recipe

(Today is December 16, 2012)

Ah!! I missed it~~ Yesterday I was like, oh I should post it for today and I forgot about it..dang it…I never thought I could actually forget about it. But I’m here today? (ha-ha…the awkward laugh). Hmm..Anyway well now I have to post two now since I “forgot” to post yesterday’s.¬†Oops! I should have known and post it when I remembered. Then I forgot it because I had to study for my math finals or I have to say Goodbye to my dearest phone~~ And I really don’t want that over the break and i would be very mad at myself… Well enough about my life story..(yea..this isn’t about you).

Well apparently yesterday was the 9th days before Christmas and I was so busy I “forgot” about it and I didn’t know the date either. Anyway, well since I LOVE roll cake and I really want to make it over the break IF I do good on my FINALS and my mood would be up and happy. Well I hope so too..Well yea.. ROLL CAKE. I love these so much~ They are one of my favorites and I’m actually planning to make two or three roll cakes for the Christmas pot luck at my church and I’m not sure what kind of flavor I should do and to cream between the cake and I nee ideas~ If your willing to please give me any ideas and flavors~~ But after final my youth group is having a party and I’m making vanilla roll cake with just regular cream filling. (I hope they like because I don’t how it will turn out to be).

And about the roll cake, I heard from lot of people that this is hard to make it first but will get better if practiced and I don’t if that’s true and others said it’s an easy recipe but I don’t if that’s true either. So I guess I got to find that out myself. And I really hope that I make it~ So I can share and enjoy my time together as a group. I don’t if this is just me but I really like making sweets and I really do enjoy and love sharing it to others especially families and friends. And when others enjoy something I make and I just feel really happy and I want to make more.

I think roll cakes are good dessert to eat together as a group and a good present to give to your neighbors, friends and families. Just slices them and eat them with coffee or teas and even milk for little children~

Enjoy your week everyone ^^

Dear Pastry: Rainy to Sunny

Ever since yesterday it has been so gloomy and rainy and I though everyone at my school looked so tired..And me too… Since it was so gloomy outside I wanted something sweet to lift the clouds away and fill it up with sunny and happy mood. So I got a Hershey kisses chocolate and it was great~

The chocolate melted in my mouth and I could taste the chocolate covered white chocolate with swirls was slowly lifting the cloud away from me and bringing back the sun. But I guess one kisses didn’t seem to work; ¬†by the time I was in a good mood, I had 10 kisses…(don’t do that..it’s a bad choice) And I started to get worn out(?) I was hyper-ish from eating so much chocolate but it was wearing off pretty fast than I though it would. And when I got home, I got out milk and chocolate syrup and mixed those two and heated them up. It warmed up my body and the sweetness of the mixture of milk and chocolate is always a “sweet” combination.

Oh and if you want to add a little more sweetness to it, just put in those fluffy marshmallows or whip cream><
