When it's been raining for the whole day and I've got a hot bowl of champorado on hand, I love to do little trips down memory lane. This time I chose to go a year back. It was one lovely August afternoon when my barkada and I visited our girl friends aka fave baking duo Mitch and Val.
I've know Mitch and Val from college. They were really famous for their yummy goodies which they sell in class. I can never forget those uber delish revel bars and choco crinkles. One minute they've taken them out and before you know it, you're left with nothing to purchase. They were that good! So when Mitch invited us to head over their house for a little baking class, we gave a resounding yes! I've had a first hand in baking from my mom out of her pure love for pies and cookies. I've been doing cupcakes and cakes too but I was lacking in the frosting department. Mitch and Val on the other hand were already experts!
Short hair and ungroomed eyebrows. Yikes! I looked quite different a year ago. At least, that's what I think. LOL! Looking at this photo makes me wonder if I should get a haircut soon. I've grown it up to elbow length now. I'm mixing up the batter with Jasmine here. She's a friend I've known since like forever, my make up guru and movie adviser.
Mitch and Val decided that we should try to experiment with the cupcakes so instead of having the traditional ones in adorable decorated paper, we baked them inside ice cream cones. Look at the mess we've already managed to create! Hahaha.
We were putting some fillings here. Chocolate overload! (left to right: Kim, Me, Mitch, Rio and Jasmine)
Then before we knew it, it was lunch time! Mitch made us some yummy pasta! Isn't she a culinary wonder?
I had so much fun that day and I felt the same as I reminisced these memories today. This drive down memory lane was worth the trip. *smiles*
As of today, Mitch and Val made this lovely hobby their little business they call Hmmm Delish. They make cakes and cupcakes and also they experiment on new recipes. Remember that s'mores recipe finds I posted a while back? Mitch was actually the first to read that and she told me she'd try baking the giant s'mores stuffed chocolate chip cookie recipe. And she did! It's in the upper leftmost photo. She even called them inception cookies!
Inception Cookies - Oreo Stuffed Cookies - Chocolate Cake - Pepero and Hershey Kisses Cake
Cheese Cupcakes in Mango, Blueberry and Chocolate - Piglet Cupcakes - Garden Cupcakes - Red Velvet Cupcakes
This doll cake is breathtaking!
I loved this cake. Looks like a wedding dress to me. Now, where's that veil?
If you wish to place an order, visit their Facebook page and tell them I sent you. It would really be awesome if their little business grows! I've been a big supporter of Mitch and Val the first time I tasted their baked goodies. Hence, I've had this teeny (or lengthy) chatter about their baking business. Hahaha. Ooopsies! Sorry about that. As usual I got carried away. But admit it, they look awesome!
Toodles for now and see you in a bit!
